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 of us.
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.
