The Geller family had just finished dinner, and had now retired to the living room for a family evening. They were just about to play a board game, or charades, when Rachel decided it was time to tell the children about the new baby.

"Kids," began Rachel, "what would you think of having a baby sister?"

"Mom, you're going to have a baby?" asked Emma.

Rachel smiled at her eldest daughter. "Yes, what do you think of that?"

"I think it's great!" replied Emma.

"Yeah," agreed Julian. Emma and Julian, the two oldest, were used to having new siblings, it seemed almost like a tradition now.

"Andrew?" asked Ross. "What do you think?"

"Um," said Andrew, "I think it's...okay...I guess...you'll still love me, right?" Andrew had mixed feelings, and, like a typical five-year-old, his biggest worry was that his parents would forget him.

"Of course!" answered Rachel. Then she looked at Lucy for her reaction. Lucy did not look happy. "What's wrong, Luce?" she asked.

"Baby sister? NO! I baby girl!" she cried angrily. Lucy burst into tears

"Oh, Lucy," said Rachel as she lifted the little girl on to her lap. "Don't you worry, you may not be the baby girl anymore, but you'll always be our extra special Lucy. Your new baby sister will be little, so we'll need to take care of her, but she'll never replace you. Everyone is special, nobody can be just like you. Okay?"

Lucy sniffed. "Okay," she replied.

Brian, being one, did not have much to say, but he did say, "Baby..."

"Yeah, that's right, Brian, a new baby sister!" replied Ross. It seemed that all members of the family were at peace now, and the Gellers settled in for a pleasant family evening.

A couple of hours later, it was eight o' clock, Brian's bedtime. In order to avoid a bedtime rush, the children went to bed at intervals. Brian went to bed at 8, Lucy at 8:15, Julian and Andrew at 8:30, and Emma at 9.

Rachel got up from the sofa, and picked up Brian. "Okay, baby boy, bedtime," she said to him.

"Rach?" Ross cut in. "Can I put them all to bed tonight? Will you just help them get ready and I'll tuck them in?"

"Um, okay, I guess," she replied. Ross took Brian from her, who was already in his pajamas, took him into his room, and placed him in his crib. As he tucked the blankets around Brian, he kissed him on the forehead.

He walked to the door, and just as he was about to leave, he turned back. "Goodnight, Brian," he whispered. He turned out the light and closed the door.

(A/N: That is the end. There is no more. No I'm just kidding. Do you people not know Madeline?)

He then went and got Lucy, who he took into her bedroom. He tucked her into her new pink "big girl" bed, and gave her a hug.

"Goodnight, Lucy," he said to her. He turned to leave.

"Daddy?" she called after him. He turned.

"Yes, sweetie?" he asked.

"I love you, Daddy," she said.

"I love you too, angel," he said.

He went into Julian and Andrew's room, where they were already in their beds, waiting. "Hi, boys," he said.

"Hi Daddy," said Julian. "Can you read us a story?" he asked.

"Sure, what do you want to hear?" he asked.

"Umm..." said Andrew. "Make one up!"

"Okay," said Ross. "Well, once upon a time..."

Half an hour later, he was in Emma's room putting her to bed. They had talked for a few minutes, and now he was getting ready to leave.

"See you in the morning, Dad," she said.

"Yup," replied Ross, although he highly doubted that he'd still be there in the morning. "Goodnight." He left.

When he entered his and Rachel's room, the lights were out, and Rachel was asleep. He assumed she'd been tired. He quickly slipped on his pajamas and got into bed.

"Goodnight, Rach," he said. "Goodnight, 2012."

Okay. That's it. Yay. I finished. Now I'll go. BYE!
