Dear Diary,

Well today is my little sister Sasame's fourth birthday and it's almost been three whole years since I've got adopted by my aunt Sakura and uncle Sasuke. Now I just simply call them Mom and Dad. Boy oh boy I can't believe how fast the time has gone and that Sasame is four years old already. It seems like just yesterday she was getting potty trained and starting nursery school with Ami.

It is Ami's last year of nursery since she will be turning five already this autumn. By the way, Kakashi and Kimi got married last year and they are now expecting their first child together, and final child altogether and they have found out that it's going to be a boy. That means of course that Kizashi is finally going to get a baby brother and Ami is going to become a big sister for the first time. Kizashi is living with them now since his grandmother passed away last month.

Speaking of big brothers and sisters, Naruto is going to become a big brother soon as well since my Uncle Shane and Aunt Kushina got married a couple of years ago and after awhile of trying they're scheduled to have a baby a month after Kakashi. As for me, Keiko and I have been Chunin now for the past year and Saki will be having her exams a few weeks from now. Not much new is going on in my life except for the fact that after I turn seventeen Dad will start teaching me how to drive although I can't actually get my license for another year.

I don't have a boyfriend yet and I've never been in love either, but from the way my parents act I can tell that it's really intense. Well, that's all I can think of to write for now since I have to start getting ready for my sister's birthday party.

Sachi

Sachi closed her diary and got up from her desk before she turned off the light and hurried downstairs. Sasuke and Sasame were sitting on the couch together watch home videos of when she was a baby while Lucky laid on the floor in front of the couch chewing on his bone. Sachi sat down beside Sasame and kissed her cheek.

"Hey sis, how's the birthday girl?" she questioned her as Sasame simply just grinned and Sasuke smiled over at Sachi.

"She's already had her breakfast. Mom still has to get her dressed and do her hair and then she's got to go to nursery." He told her.

"I don't wanna go, I wanna stay home." Sasame said.

"Sorry princess but you know the number one rule around here. Whatever your mother says goes." He reminded her before he turned his head back over to look at the television set. Sasame had been learning to crawl for the first time and he had congratulated her by picking her up and kissing his her cheek before standing her up on top of his knee and blowing raspberries on her tummy.

That's when suddenly Sakura came out of the bathroom. "Alright little miss Sasame, it's time to get you dressed." She told her. "Do you want to pick out what you want to wear today?" she asked her as Sasame silently nodded. "Well come on then." She told her and Sasame quickly leapt off of the couch and raced after her down the hallway.

"So,.." Sasuke began as he picked up the television remote and turned off the TV before he turned his attention back to his eldest daughter. "Shouldn't you be getting ready to leave as well?" he wondered.

"But I don't have any missions to go on today." She told him.

"I'm not talking about missions, I'm talking about high school. Your regular education is just as important you know." He pointed out. "Besides,.." he began with a sly grin. "Kizashi is probably wondering where you are right now." He added as Sachi blushed.

"What are you talking about?" she questioned him.

"Oh come on Sachi, it's no secret that you guys like each other. Especially since I get my information from a very important source." He told her.

"Oh yeah? Who?" she wondered.

"Sasame." He replied while continuing to grin at her.

"Sasame? How does she know anything about that kind of stuff she still watches Sesame Street." She said as Sasuke chuckled.

"She's a lot smarter than you think she is." He told her and that's when suddenly Sasame came flying out of her bedroom wearing a red dress with green stockings and she climbed back up onto the couch and sat in-between her father and sister.

"How do I look?" she asked him as he smiled down at her and kissed the top of her head.

"You look beautiful sweetheart." He told her.

"Thanks." She replied with a proud grin.

"That was the easy part. Now I just have to find a way to get her to sit still while I fix her hair." Sakura said.

"Here, I'll help." Sasuke said as he picked up Sasame and then sat her on top of his lap and held her tightly.

"Thank you Sasuke." Sakura told him as she took Sasame's spot on the couch and started to brush her hair. As Sasame began to squirm and fuss the doorbell rang. Lucky suddenly stopped chewing on his bone and leapt up to his feet and started to bark.

"Lucky! Cut that out!" Sachi cried while clapping her hands together loudly as she stood up and started walking towards the door. "I'll get it." She said since she knew that her parents had an awful lot on their plate to handle right now. After she opened the door she suddenly saw Kizashi standing there in front of her. "Oh, hey Kizashi." She began.

"Hey Sachi, I was just wondering if you wanted me to walk to school with you." He said and that's when suddenly Lucky trotted over towards them and growled while he glared up at him and Sachi glanced over her shoulder and down at him.

"Lucky what's the matter with you? It's just Kizashi. You've known him for the past few years." She pointed out before she looked back over at Kizashi. "Sure, I'd love to. I just have to grab my stuff first. Why don't you come on in?" she suggested before grabbing ahold of Lucky's collar tightly.

"Alright, thank you." He told her while smiling warmly at her as he stepped inside the house and Lucky continued to growl at him.

"This dog has suddenly started acting so weird." Sachi said while still barely managing to hold him back as Sasuke simply just grinned and Sachi raced upstairs.

"Hn. Overprotective is more like it." He said while Sakura started pulling Sasame's hair back into a ponytail. "So Kizashi, Sachi tells me that you're about to become a big brother again."

"Yep, well,.. he's going to be my half-brother anyway but still, I'm going to have a brother nonetheless." He told him with a shrug.

"You should be happy about that. Naruto's the closest thing I have left to having a brother now. His son even calls me Uncle Sasuke so it looks like I get to be an uncle again. I don't know for sure but lately Hinata has been dropping hints on Facebook that she's pregnant again." Sasuke said.

"Boy with my parents having a baby, and her having a baby, and Sachi's aunt and uncle having a baby, there's going to be babies around here everywhere." Kizashi said while shaking his head in disbelief as Sasuke laughed.

"Yep!" he exclaimed before Sachi came running back downstairs with all of her school supplies.

"Alright, Kizashi and I are going to school now. See you guys later." She told them before heading back over towards the front door.

"I love you Sachi and have a good day at school." Sasuke told her.

"Thanks and I love you too!" she called back before she and Kizashi headed out the front door.
