A/n: I jumped forward a bit… not much… I suck at math and can tell you the math in a few more chapters but not now I'll spoil things. Sorry. Oh AND! I haven't decided yet if this is gonna be a super long story and then Like a California King will be a whole bunch of like random snapshots and what not, or if I'll do something else, right now this looks like it'll be a very long ride. I hope you enjoy!
Izzy looked at the mountain of boxes around the living room, the new living room Tara and her had just bought. As part of the huge house they had bought after getting on their feet with their jobs and paying off their college debts.
"Izzy, when did we get so much stuff?" Tara said looking over the boxes at Izzy who was sitting in the middle of a circle of boxes.
"When we agreed to take anything, anyone didn't want." Izzy said pouting, Tara laughed and stepped over a few boxes to join her wife, she pulled her down till they were staring up at the ceiling fan.
"Hey… do you know something?"
"We are in our living room." Tara smiled looking at Izzy who grinned back.
"We are." Izzy said kissing Tara. Tara sat up and pulled a blanket out of one of the boxes and covered herself and Izzy, holding her wife.
Emily walked around the house early in the morning before JJ or Jaden woke up, it was the first morning that Tara and Izzy had in their new house. Emily was a little sad when she pulled out two mugs instead of one after becoming so use to her morning coffees with Tara, sighing she put the other back.
"Hold your horses." She heard over her shoulder and turned to see Izzy and Tara standing behind her.
"What are you guys doing here?" Emily said pouring three cups of coffee.
"Well after waking up we realized, we have a coffee maker, and filters, and…"
"Give me!" Izzy said grabbing the cup before sitting on the counter.
"No coffee." Tara said and Emily laughed.
"Ah, so how was your first night?"
"We slept in the living room." Tara said and Emily chuckled, nodding.
"Good night then?"
"It was." Izzy smiled more awake after her first cup was finished.
"Your mother should be up soon if you want to wait around." Emily said and Izzy nodded.
"I'm going to go get ready for work, you two, be good." Emily smiled kissing both their foreheads. She headed upstairs, crawling back in the bed up to her wife. Pulling JJ against her she kissed her wife's neck, JJ groaned. "Jennifer, Tara and Izzy are drinking your coffee." Emily smiled kissing JJ's neck again, but JJ sat bolt right up in bed.
"Our daughter forgot her own coffee last night so she came back over for yours today." Emily said as JJ nodded laying back down, she rested her head on Emily's shoulder, yawning.
"When did you become the morning person?"
"When you stopped being the morning person." Emily smiled kissing JJ's nose. "Plus I started those early morning runs a few years back, and it changed a lot." Emily said before pulling JJ up so they were both sitting, JJ in her arms. "But now we should get moving so we're not late, and they don't drink all your coffee."
"You know, I liked the fact they were in the same sub, till now… I don't care if it's a good ten minute walk and about a 4 minute drive, they'll steal my coffee."
"They're that close because we asked them to be close for Jaden."
"Em, what if we just… quit?"
"You know about every six months one of us asks this, and we always say the same thing."
"We can quit if we want, but we love our jobs." JJ sighed, rolling out of Emily's arms she made her way to the bathroom, "Care to join?" She looked over at Emily who smiled and joined her.
"When do you think we should talk to them?" Tara asked, Izzy curled up in her arms on the couch.
"Well sooner is better than later."
"Talk to us about?" JJ said walking into the room towel drying her hair.
"Well…" Izzy looked up at Tara and smiled. "We should wait till mom is down here too." She said and Tara nodded.
"I'm here, I'm here." Emily said wrapping her arms around JJ. "So do tell."
"You're going to be grandmas." Izzy smiled, as JJ and Emily's jaws dropped.
"Soon, nothing official yet, but we have been seeing a doctor and trying." Tara added.
"Guys, don't you think you may be rushing things?" JJ asked sitting next to her daughters.
"We talked about it, and we wanted to start a family early, Tara has her job at the hospital and that's going great, I have my job with the design firm, we're ready for this."
"Kids are a huge step."
"Mom, we have the money, and the space, and the love…"
"Alright, and we're here if you need us, no matter what." Emily smiled kissing Izzy's forehead. "Now who is going to carry?"
"I will be." Izzy smiled and Tara nodded.
"With my job it's a little harder for me to."
"Yea, that makes sense." JJ said, it's why she carried Jaden instead of Emily, she didn't have to go into the field, even though it didn't stop her.
"So we're going to be grandparents."
"Who is going to tell Pen?" JJ asked looking around.
"You guys." Izzy said making everyone laugh.
