IMPORTANT: IF YOU HAVEN'T READ SOLDIER BABY YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND THE PLOT LINE IN THIS STORY!
Love. That's the only word that could describe the feelings that I feel towards my family; towards Edward, Sarah and Jacob. Jacob is my porker of my two children. Everything he sees or touches goes directly into his mouth. He even tried to eat the couch cushion once or twice. Sarah is my princess. She's had Edward wrapped around her little finger ever since we brought her home. There is no doubt in my mind that Edward wouldn't do anything for this seven month old. Yes, it's been seven entire months since these two little miracles made their way into this world that we live in. Edward and my lives have changed drastically but I wouldn't have it any other way. Every hectic moment in our lives makes it all worthwhile. Whether it's trying to prevent one of the twins from falling down the staircase (Sadly Sarah did inherit my klutziness...) or from eating one of those small silicon packages that come in shoeboxes, those are the moments that we will remember forever. Did I forget to mention that Edward's sister, Alice, took my daughter on her first shopping trip and managed to bring her into every store in the mall within two hours? Okay, Alice bought my seven month old a makeup set. She's seven months old for god's sakes! If all the crazy times we've already had aren't enough it's September so I'll be going back to work full time along with Edward so the twins will be with Esme much much more. Even more shopping excursions... yay! (Not...) I'm going to have two of the most spoiled children in the world between their shopoholic aunts and their overly loving grandmother.
"Bella? Where are the diapers?" Edward called from the nursery.
"Um... I just bought more yesterday, check in the closet. They should be in the bin!" I replied. Edward's been a huge help these past couple months. I mean, he's done so much with the twins. I remember when Emmett was alone with Tyler he had absolutely no idea what to do with one child, let alone two. Let's just say that Emmett is afraid of a diaper. Thankfully Edward knows how to change a diaper leaving me duty free until its my turn. Even though he's been working overtime at the hospital and extremely late shifts, he still makes time to spend with the family. We've gone to the park with the twins and down to the beach just to sit on the sand with them, looking at the wave's crash onto the beach.
"Mmhmmmm?" I replied looking up from the papers I was organizing for the first day of school. I'm teaching my own class of third graders again so its time to put together name tags and table charts.
"I was just wondering if you wanted to go the zoo tomorrow? I mean, if you're busy we don't have too but I figured that it was going to be nice and with both of us going back to work we won't have as much free time so I thought the kids would enjoy going and seeing the animals now?" Edward asked slightly nervous. I put my sharpie down and looked at him.
"That's a great idea!" I exclaimed happily, "Hold on..." I stated as my cell began to vibrate.
"Hey Bella, what are you doing tomorrow because we all wanted to have a family get together so that we could maybe have out at mom and dads. We all want to see the twins and you guys so what do ya say?" a fast talking Alice asked speedily through the phone.
"Well, um, Edward and I were actually going to take the kids to the zoo tomorrow but I guess that we would come after." I said slowly into the phone.
"THE ZOO?!?!??!?!? I wanna come. Can I come?" she screeched into the receiver.
"Here talk to your brother..." I whispered shoving the phone into Edward's hands.
"Alice... what? Can't... I mean... yeah I want you to go but.... Alice!... no!.... what?... oh god come all Alice we're not six anymore.... I'm not a meany!....Mary Alice... okay okay fine you can go!" Edward exclaimed while pinching the bridge of his nose.
"Here talk to your brother..." Bella whispered shoving the phone into my hands
"Alice..." I began.
"EDWARD ANYTHONY MASEN CULLEN WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THAT YOU WERE GOING TO THE ZOO WITH THE KIDS?!?!? I FEEL SO LEFT OUT I MEAN... SERIOUSLY, CANT THEIR OWN AUNTY COME AND EXPERIENCE THEIR FIRST TIME AT THE ZOO?!?!?"
"NO EDWARD YOU CAN'T JUST GO WITH YOU AND BELLA AND THE KIDS! THE ENTIRE FAMILY SHOULD GO EDWARD."
"EDWARD... DON'T YOU WANT US THERE? DON'T YOU WANT US TO COME?"
"Yes I want you to go but..."
"WHAT IS THERE TO OBJECT TO?"
"Don't YOU ALICE ME! I KNOW THAT YOU JUST WANT BELLA AND THE TWINS TO YOURSELF...."
"EDWARD I WANNA GO WITH YOU PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE?!?!?"
"Oh god come on Alice we're not six anymore...."
"YOU BIG MEANY!"
"I'm not a meany!"
"YES YOU ARE!"
"EDWARD IT'S NOT FAIR! I WANT TO GO TO THE ZOO YOU WITH GUYS!"
"Okay okay fine you can come!"
"YAY! BYE EDWARD LOVE YOU!" Wow, that was interesting... That's what you get when you have a sister names Alice now isn't it.
