Five o'clock came too early for me. I got up and took a
shower and got dressed in my scrubs and then I got Kelsey and
Bella up, Bella was getting herself dressed. I had the boxes of
Poptarts at the table when we all sat down, Kelsey was in her
high chair and I gave her the poptart and her sippy cup, Bella
had her poptart and orange juice and I sat down for my poptart.
"We're going to drop Kels off first." I said "Okay." Bella said,
her school begins at 7:30 until 2:30, I had to drop her off
earlier. We dropped Kelsey off at six, I dropped Bella off at
six thirty for the before school care and then I went to the
campus. Austin was waiting for me in the student book store he
had to work until his first class. "Good luck today." Austin said
"Thanks." I said kissing his lips softly and going to find the
building I need. College is different than high school. I spotted
Allie and smiled when she waved "Hey! We went over there this
morning." Allie said "Sorry, I was already gone." I said "My mom
said you can just bring Bells over and she can ride with everyone
else." Allie said, she has five siblings, John is twenty-six with
a six year old daughter, Nathan is sixteen, Zoey is fourteen,
Hannah is tweleve, and Emma is ten. "I will keep that in mind for
tomorrow." I said and she smiled at me.
I'm in heaven, all science and math classes for my next
four years or classes related to nursing. I'm taking Spanish and
Sign language next semester so I could talk to most people. I
have a ton of homework due for my next class, I only had three
today, one was from 7-9, the other was 10-12, and then, 1-3.
Tomorrow it will be 9-11, and then 12-2, so Tuesdays and Thursday
won't be as bad. I went straight to work at three thirty and did
the vital signs and then clean up until ten and then when I got
home Bella and Kelsey were asleep and Allie was at my table doing
homework. I sat next to her with my backpack, "Thanks." I said
"no problem. Mom says just bring Bells over before you go
tomorrow." She said and I nodded, I did homework until midnight
and then I crawled into bed after putting on a T-shirt. I woke up
at five and I got myself dressed in the scrubs, got Kelsey
dressed for day care, and then got Bella up. We had breakfast and
talked about our first day at school "Sorry about not being
around." I said "Sissy, you're working." Bella said and I smiled,
"Okay Kels you need to be there by seven." I said and I took
Bella next door they were excited to see her and took Kelsey to
day care and then went to the library until eight forty-five I
was done with my homework which will be due tomorrow.
My first class was easy, I had an hour to work on my
homework so I did so and then at two I went to the library and
worked on the remaining homework until three and then I went by
to Austin and kissed him good-bye for work. Work was good and I
got home to Allie and Kelsey "She wouldn't go to bed." Allie said
"Thank you." I said and Allie smiled "See you tomorrow." she said
and I smiled I held Kelsey "Au?" She asked "Maybe Saturday." I
said "no." She mumbled until she fell asleep and I tucked her in
her bed, Bella came into my room "Can I sleep with you?" Bella
asked "Sure." I said and she curled up with me "How was school?"
I asked "Good. Is it the weekend yet?" Bella asked "nope, almost
Wednesday though." I said and Bella did a smile at me and fell
asleep. This time my alarm went off at five, too early for both
It's finally Saturday "Do you work?" Bella asked me it
was seven and we were both up, already used to the early schedule
of the new school year, I was making eggs and I looked at her
"Nope, I'm off all weekend." I said "Good, so is Austin coming
over?" Bella asked "Geeze, you don't miss me. You miss Austin." I
said and she giggled. In walks a sleepy Kelsey with her blanket
and teddy bear in one hand and rubbing her eye in the other
"Morning sleepy head." I said and she giggled at me but sat
beside Bella "Au?" She asked "He's probably asleep." I said "No."
Kelsey said and I smiled "Go watch TV with Bells, I'll change you
after we eat." I said "Yes." Kelsey said and I smiled at her
someimes I wonder about her. Around nine after we were all
dressed and about to go to Wal*Mart for groceries I get a phone
call "Hey Lex, you guys doing anything?" Austin asked "We're
about to go to Wal*Mart. Do you want to come and go?" I asked
"Sure. I will be there in ten." He said and we hung up "Au will
be here soon." I said and their faces lit up. When Austin arrived
they hugged him "They missed you." I said and Austin smiled at
them "I missed all of you too." He said and they giggled at him
"Let's go." He said "My car?" I asked "Sure. I bought a car seat
though." He said "Your car then." I said and he smiled at me.
At Wal*Mart after grocery shopping we went to the toy
section and Austin told them to each pick out a toy and I smiled
at him, he didn't know what he was getting into. After Wal*Mart
we went home and then to the park so they could play. "Do you
ever want more kids?" Austin asked me "One day. Do you want any
kids?" I asked him "One day." He said and I smiled at him "Lexie,
I love you." Austin said "I love you too." I said "Tonight can I
steal Bella from you?" Austin asked me "Have her home by eight."
Isaid and Austin smiled "Deal. Oh and Kels too." He said "Fine."
I said smiling at him and he kissed my lips. He ran after the
girls and I smiled. I really do love this man. After we got home
he dropped me off and I went over to Allie's "You and Austin are
getting serious." Karen said "I love him. The girls adore him.
They want him around, not me." I said and Karen smiled "I have
seen a huge improvement in both of you. Emmy says that Bella has
a ton of friends at school, in day care Kelsey has a lot of
little friends. You are dating, and have some work friends."
Karen said "I just feel bad that I'm working all the time and I'm
missing out." I said "Don't feel bad Lexie. You're doing better
than what they had. What you had growing up." Karen said and I
smiled. Allie came in "Sorry, Jake took me out on his boat."
Allie said and I smiled "Where are the girls?" I asked "With
their favorite person." I said "No they aren't, they aren't with
me." Allie said and I smiled at her.
They pulled up at seven and then went in the house and
then around seven thirty Bella came over "We would like you to
come home please." Bella said "Uh-oh."I said and Allie smiled at
me "have fun!" She said and when I walked over dinner was made
and it was a candle ligh dinner for two. "We're going to eat in
my room and watch TV." Bella said and I nodded, when they left
Austin took my hand "I love you Lexie. I love your girls. I'm
starting to think of them as my own. I will admit I have a
commitment issue, I would never stay with one girl for long. But
you're different. When I'm not with you I catch myself thinking
of you, smiling when I hear your name. MY parents approve of you
and they adore the girls." Austin said "What are you getting at?"
I asked "Kels come in please." Austin said and Kelsey walked in
with Bella by her side wih a bag "Give it to mommy." Austin said
and it was a kind of big box and then a note "Mommy will you
please make Austin my daddy?" "What?" I asked and Austin took the
box and opened it, in front of me was a diamond ring "Marry me
Lexie." Austin said "Make me the happiest man on earth. I know we
haven't known each other for long but I'm in love with you. What
do you say Lexie?" He asked me.
