Life In Letters
R – Radiant
He never expected to describe somebody as radiant, but that was what he was doing now. Here was his wife who was pregnant with his twins and looking radiant. He had heard some of his frat brother's talk about their wives looking the same way with their children, but he had dismissed it because he thought that he would never get married and have children.
He watched as she read her book and he stood there at the door watching as the lights made her glow. He grinned at her as he neared her and leaned down to kiss her. She looked up when he got close to her and she leaned in to kiss him back. His hand reached out and laid it on her stomach. He felt one of them kick his hand and wondered which twin it was. They were told that they were going to have a girl and boy on Ellie's last Doctor's appointment.
He sat down on the couch and got his own book and starts to read. Sometimes they liked to just be quiet and read and even sometimes they liked to watch TV and a movie and sometimes they would talk. He had already made dinner, which was lasagna. When he was a child sometimes he would watch the cook and she would tell him how to do whatever she was making. A couple of times she would let him make whatever she was cooking that day. When he had gone to college the cook had sent him recipes and he had sometimes made dinner at the frat house. He even made his own spaghetti sauce that had ribs, sausage and meatballs.
When they were finished he gathered up the dishes and did the cleaning up. He didn't mind helping his wife out at all. He felt useful. He knew that she would do the same for him and she had done it on more than one occasion.
They sat in front of the TV and watched a movie. After that they were tired and both slid underneath the sheets and slept. Before he went to sleep he thought that he couldn't wait to meet his children and he would be a better Dad than his own.
