“Patrick’s crying again!” Alfie yelled to his wife who was busy taking care of Leo.
“Well then take care of him!” She yelled back over Leo’s screams of complaints about his food. Alfie sighed.
“I didn’t want a baby in the first place,” He mumbled as he took care of Patrick. He might have said that, but Alfie still loved his second son. It was just the constant crying and crying and crying and hair tugging and pooping and asking for food, and this included little Leo. He was still as stubborn as ever when it came to food.
That’s why when Rosa told him she wanted yet ANOTHER one, Alfie nearly had a heart attack.
“What!? Ha ha, I get it your joking right? You’ve got to be joking, cause I’m sure you don’t want another one of this little monsters at our heels asking for everything all the time!”
“No I’m serious Alfie, I want another one.”
“DON’T REALISE HOW LOW OUR FUNDS ARE? AND YOU WANT ANOTHER ONE??”
“Calm down Alfie it’s just a baby, they’re not that bad.” She said trying to calm him down.
“NOT THAT BA- I can’t…I just…of course they’re not that bad, because they loooovveee you, I’m just the father they’d like to send to hell!”
“Bebe I need you help!” Rosa exclaimed once Alfie had left for work the next day.
“What is it?”
“Alfie doesn’t want to have anymore children!”
“…so?” Rosa widened her eyes.
“So??? I want another one and he just says, no, no, no, they’re monsters which they aren’t!”
“Look, you already have two beautiful sons, why want more?”
“…okay maybe it’s because I want a girl. Is that such a problem?”
Bebe sighed. “No, of course not, but don’t think you should respect his op-”
“BEBE, I want another one!”
“How about we don’t use the condom this time?” Alfie frowned.
“Really Rosa? You won’t get me so easily! I said I didn’t want any more children and that’s final!”
“OH don’t worry I’m taking birth control pills,” She cooed. Alfie eyed her suspiciously.
“It’s not working, Bebe, he’s not falling for it.”
“Hey, did you learn they built a bunch of pet stuff, the mayor has decided to introduce pets to the town.” Bebe said as she played her turn.
“Yeah, they’ve actually recently finished building an equestrian center right in front of my house. Replaced the fishing pond. But as I was saying its not working! I need more of your amazing advice.”
“I’m thinking of buying myself a few pets, maybe a bird certainly not a dog!”
“Bebe! I need your help!” Rosa nearly screamed.
Happy Birthday Patrick!
OH GOD! What is up with the hair, I swear both the parents have no bloodline whatsoever so I have no idea where this hair color came from! Yes I`m pretty certain Alfie’s the father. Either way he has his father’s eyes.
“Pretty, pretty, pretty pleeeeaaassseeeeee!”
“No, Rosa and that’s final.”
“But now that Patrick has grown don’t you miss have a little baby?”
“You want another brother or sister right Leo? Possibly a sister more…? Well don’t worry, if mommy’s plan work you’ll have a another sibling to play with, kay?”
“And you, you’re gonna be my little athlete. I knew this the moment you kicked like a footballer in my stomach. I love you both so much. I really want another one.” Rosa sighed.
More children? Alfie wasn’t too sure. He loved Rosa. He loved Leo and he loved Patrick. Was he ready for another one? He wasn’t sure, but he loved Rosa so much… he was willing to consider it. Yes, he’s going to consider it. Maybe after they’ve been married they could get another one. Maybe he’d be ready then. Either way, marriage wasn’t anywhere close. They didn’t have the funds for a wedding let alone rings. He wanted it to be perfect. Ha just imagining if they got pregnant again right now, they wouldn’t be able to survive! Alfie chuckled to himself before going back home.
“Hey buddy mommy tells me you’re going to be a little athlete! Can you say athlete?”
“Hah, well can you say baseball? You should be a little baseball champion!”
“Good job!” Alfie laughed as he tickled Patrick.
Okay this is not something Rosa normally does, especially not at night. Buuuuttt the ice cream truck was right in front and she had this craving for a fudge popsicle. Yes she was an adult but she still liked ice cream! Please don’t judge her…
“But Alfie, Leo’s birthday is tomorrow!”
“I know, and I’m really sorry but I gotta to work. We have this big thing. I can’t skip, it’s really big Rosa, it might just give us a lot of money. A lot of needed money.”
“Your son’s birthday!”
“Look I said I was sorry, this might be the event that will get us out of the hundreds! They’ll be other birthdays.” Rosa frowned worried.
“Just promise you’ll be careful.”
“Hey birthday boy! Time to blow out your candles!”
“Daddy? Where Daddy?”
“He’s at work don’t worry you’ll see him later.” Leo made a pouty face.
