Thought of Stars Chapter 4: I Know Things Now

Like most new parents it was crazy around the Banks-Urban household. It took them a few months to really settle into a routine finally after a few months they had finally found a rhythm which meant more adult time as well.

Screenshot-107Just after the twins turned 1, Reese was doing everyone’s favorite job and cleaning the bathroom where she found an extra pregnancy test under the sink.  No way… She thought to herself, as she pulled out her phone to check the app she used to track her period. No, no, no she thought as she she noticed her period was almost 3 weeks late. This is not happening. The pregnancy test thought otherwise.


“We’ll see what your dad has to say about this” Reese said as she got the twins settled on the couch each in their new big brother/big sister outfits. “Dada” both kids yelled out, it was one of the few words they knew well. Just after that Darren walked out to the living room.

“You’re kids have a message for you” Reese started out with.

“What? They can barely talk” Darren said.

“Dada! Dada!” They both called from the couch, Darren quickly rushed over to the couch noticing Sabrina trying to crawl off the couch. The girl didn’t sit for more than a few minutes since she learned she could move about on her own.

“Where do you think you are going princess?” He said to her, “Oh my god! Are you serious he said looking over to Reese.

“mmhmm” she responded with a nod


A few weeks later Reese and Darren were enjoying some grownup alone time outside.

“You know I think this is my favorite part” Darren said.


“The pregnancy, those couple weeks where you start showing, but it doesn’t look like much and only you and me really know what’s going on.”

“Well I’m not showing as quickly this time so hopefully there’s only 1 baby in there this time.”

“I think being a mother makes you even more beautiful,” Darren said leaning in for a kiss.

“I think you’re crazy”


But of course Darren’s favorite part of the pregnancy was soon over, and everyone could see the new addition to the Banks-Urban household.


Before she was even a year and half, Sabrina was up and walking, she was definitely going to be a handful.


“This is a really great way to be spending our leisure day isn’t it?” Reese said as she closed her eyes feeling another contraction come on.

“I couldn’t think of anything better to be doing.”  Darren said grabbing her hand and putting a small kiss on her forehead.

“We could be playing with the kids at the festival or the beech”

“And next year we’ll have 3 amazing kids to play with.”

A few hours later little Finn Daniel was born.
