Birds chirped outside the window annoyingly And the sun began adoring the side of my face a little too lovingly, letting me know that morning was here. My own personal alarm clock.
The arms that held me from behind squeezed tighter around me as their owner snuggled closer as I shifted to try and get the sun off my face.
Get up, Ava..
I thought to myself, squeezing my eyes tighter trying to get back to sleep. I knew it was a contradiction within itself, but it had been a long night.
All I wanted to do was lay there. Just... Lay there. Yet when I heard small feet pitter patter across the hard wood floor I knew it would never happen.
"Mommy!" A small voice squeaked close to my ear.
"Mom! Mommy! Mom!" Ohhhhhh!!!! MY GOD!
"Mommy, is you woked up yet?" My 5 year old son Aquarius bugged, tugging the pillow that I'd just snatched over my head in an attempt to ignore him.
It took everything in me not to beg him for the infamous Five more minutes.
"Why do kids always ask that when they know you're really not?" I muffled through the pillow, cracking open my eyes for the very first time this morning.
"No, Really!" Quarry pleaded. " I'm hungwry, and Aries ate the rest of my Coco Pups and she say I cant Have her Cap and Crwunch cuz i cant put on clothes." He tattled, Mispronouncing words that only he could figure out how to mess up.
I tried not to laugh at my baby as I removed the pillow from my face to see that his brownish orbs were welling with tears. He had on some courteroy pants (that I still hadn't forgiven Harley for buyin for my baby) that were unbuttoned and zipped, which was to be expected, but the hilarious part was that his head was through the left sleeve of his inside out Transformers shirt, while his arm hung out the neck hole like a tree limb.
"Baby, look at your son." I chuckled, nudging my backside against my husband to rouse him from his sleep.
If I had to get up, then he had to as well. Especially for this.. It was classic.
"Aaaavaaaaa!!" He whined through his slumber, releasing me from his grasp so that he could sit up
"Im tryna sleep, you know last night you..... Nigga wtf you got on?? How??" He questioned, makin the stink face at our baby.
"Dont be lookin at my son like that foo!" I chastised, removing the thin covers from myself and slipping on my glasses and slippers as I got out of the bed.
"Come on son." I smiled, tugging the shirt over his head and picking him up.
"Let's go see what yo sister talkin bout." I cooed to him
As I made my way down the stairs thinking of what I was going to say to Aries about being mean to her brother this morning I thought of how far i'd come. Each morning it was something else with these too. Which had oddly enough become the most exciting excitement of my life.
It was strange... Strange how we got here. Me and Shad I mean.
I wasn't exactly the "type" he usually went for, and he wasn't.... well, he was Shad the kind of guy that I shouldn't have gone for. And we were Far from the kind of people to be settled down in a not so modest home with 2 kids and a mut.
Don't get me wrong, It was never easy and we fought it as much as we could in the beginning.. Had to go through a lot of things, loose a lot of people and grow up in a lot of ways before we realized that the pains that we were going through separately, we were meant to go through together...
I'll tell you the story... Of our lives.. Of our Loves, Our friends. Our Enemies...
I'll tell you the story of our GROWING PAINS......
