I smiled at our son. He is beautiful. I can’t wait to see who he will take after.
“Hey there.” I whispered. “I think I’m getting the hang of this.” I still couldn’t believe this was my son and I was a mother. “You’re a good baby, yes you are!” Watcher, I was a mother. Gosh. So much has happened, and here I am, holding my baby boy.
“Hey, beautiful.” Mitch said.
“So… want to give our little boy a sibling?”
I laughed, “Well, not yet.” I was still comprehending everything that’s happened. I was hardly surviving. Between the new baby, and still trying to keep up with work, I was in way over my head. Mitch was telling me to take it easy-after all I did just give birth 2 weeks ago. But I knew how the world works, if you aren’t getting ahead, you might have well be out of a job. I was working for a good company, one of the best in tech. I’d being going back to work after 7 more weeks of maternity leave. It wasn’t Apple or anything, but I was good. I hadn’t gotten anywhere by ‘being normal’, when they learned I was from Windenburg they were surprised, and even more so by what I knew. Apparently Windenburg is known for partying, having fun, not ‘real stuff’.
“But I would like a daughter.”
Everything has been busy, with our newborn son, our jobs…I was still trying to do some work… and trying to actually make this house feel like home. When it was just us, I could have cared less about the fact that we didn’t have a kitchen, and we just ate out of a cooler. Or that our bedroom was also our living room. We agree that we want to fix up this place and definitely add carpet… a must when we have a toddler running around! Hopefully we can make enough money before Jonathan’s birthday!
