Months and months of stress, worry, and tears… And we’re finally here. Tomorrow’s the big day.
Not for me, of course. I’ve still got a couple of weeks left. But tomorrow at 9, Colette goes in for her c-section. I was lucky when I had the boys – I was able to do things the, well… “natural” way. But the doctor seems to think this is the safest option for her.
So by this time tomorrow, my son will be a father… And I’ll be a grandmother.
Fuck. It still doesn’t feel real, you know?
And I’m just amazed at how well the kids are handling this. They’re being so brave… so mature too.
They started going to a parenting class together about a month and a half ago. Tobi found an advertisement for it online, and Colette signed them up right away. All on their own.
And… they’ve set a wedding date. That was probably the biggest shock of all.
The law says at least one of them has to be 18, so they’re waiting for the summer, after Colette’s birthday. Then I’ll have to appear in court to give parental consent for Tobi… It’ll be such a bitch to get through all that paperwork.
But they love each other, and they really want to do what they think is right… How can I be anything but proud of that?
I guess I can’t help feeling like maybe I did something right, y’know?
And, much as I hate to admit it, maybe Diego did, too.
You know, after all these months, I still can barely stand to look at him. And he’s not making it any easier. He’s been nothing but kind and gracious since the moment he arrived here… And it’s just making things even more difficult.
For more than fifteen years, all my memories of him have been of this evil, traitorous, unfaithful bastard… But when I see him now, I guess I can’t help but think of some of the good memories too, y’know? Ones I haven’t thought of in years. It’s kind of… confusing, I guess.
This would be so much easier if he was a massive douchebag like Colette’s mother.
I guess none of it really matters now anyway, huh? Because no matter what I think of them… We’re all about to become family in less than 8 hours.
And despite everything… I really can’t wait to meet those little bundles of joy.
Both of them.
Note: YES, it was twins AGAIN. OMG I just about DIED all over again. (And yes, my characters knew since before Colette even came to stay! We just conveniently skipped over the “holy shit, twins!” journal entries 😉 I was very careful to never say “baby” or “babies” when referring to Colette’s pregnancy… Hehehe )
And no, it wasn’t planned! And when I found out, I considered cheating to make it just one baby, but decided that if the game really wanted twins again, so be it 😛
Welcome to the world little nooboos! God help you with all this evil author has planned for your futures… 😉
