This chapter will be from Harley's POV
Turns out I’m a better Mom than I thought I would be. I read almost every parenting book I could get my hands on so my babies could have the best future possible. The one thing they all had in common was that breast feeding was necessary for a healthy baby's diet.
You would think being a single Mom with two screaming twins would be hard, and let me tell you it is. But there is just something about picking them up and looking into their eyes that gets you. They just look up at you with such love and devotion that you couldn’t ever think of hurting them.
Another thing I picked up doing with them is I sang to them. Grant it I didn’t have a very good voice but every time they were fussy before going to bed all I had to do was stand over them and sing a lullaby. I think I’m pretty much killing the whole Mom thing.
Of course I’ll never stop following my dream of becoming a Best Selling Author. I’ve published 3 children’s books so far and I am currently writing a poetry book. The poetry book has a bunch of poems I wrote when the wound of Mason leaving was still fresh. I’m not sure if it will sell well.
I still wasn’t very confident in my skill on the piano so I haven’t published any pieces from that but I’m getting there. It feel so weird to act like an adult and do adult things. It feels just like yesterday I had the world laid out before me and I could take it anywhere. Not to say I regret having Coheed and Claudio, I love them to death.
Of course when I’m feeling down and out and I just need a little me time away from the kids Delsin is always there for me. The boys have really taken to him and when they are fussy and not even my singing will calm them down all he has to do is tell them a story and look really animated. They smile and coo while waving around their little hands and feet. I don’t think they can understand what he’s saying yet but I think they’re just laughing at his facial expressions.
Just like every heir before me I had to get my picture taken so one day it will be hanging over my urn just like the past Belle’s. Sounds pretty morbid right? Well I hung my picture beside my bed and over the only picture I have of me and Mason, along with the first rose he ever got me (I had it sealed in this special plastic so I can keep it forever). It kind of hurt knowing that there would be no other picture beside mine of my spouse. All I could do was hope that one day I would get over him or that he would come back to me.
Enough about my sweet little babies (for now at least) and my woes. Let’s talk about how I’m doing with my family, specifically my parents. So far me and my Mom are on speaking terms again, we were never really off of them but she was distant. As for me and my Dad...well we are eating together again if that means anything?
We all decided it would be a nice idea to go downstairs and use the new spa that was put in to try and just have some family time like we use too. Needless to say all it took was Delsin pretending like he passed gas and blaming it on Mom to get us all laughing. It felt great to feel like a part of the family again.
Finally it was the day for my babies birthdays! Everyone was gathered in the nursery, except for my Mom because she was at work, and we all said our final goodbyes to them as sweet babies and were ready to welcome them as children.
They grew up looking so much like their father it hurt. Coheed (on the left) inherited his Dad’s eye color (light blue) and hair color and then Claudio (on the right) inherited my eye color (brown) and his Dad’s hair color. They are still the most sweetest boys I’ve ever known but sometimes they get that mischievous look in their eyes and I know I’m going to have my hands full...
Coheed gained the Hot-Headed trait and the Social Butterfly aspiration. Claudio gained the Music Lover trait and the Artistic Prodigy aspiration.
