“Ella!” Harry says grabbing her down from the top of the kitchen counter. “What do you think you’re doing?” He says. “You know you’re not supposed to climb onto the counter.” He says. “I do it! I big!” She pouts. Harry sighs. “I know you think you’re a big girl, love, but there are still some things that you’re too small to do.” He says softly. “No! I big! I get my cup!” She groans and tries to climb back up onto the counter. Harry sighs grabbing her again, which then causes her to start kicking and screaming. “Ella Anne Styles, you stop this right now!” Harry says. “No! No! No!” She screams still kicking her feet around. “Fine. You don’t want to listen you’re going to time out.” He says. “No! Daddy mean!” She says and starts trying to push him away from her. Harry sighs walking over to the time out spot. He puts her in the chair. “Now, you’re going to sit here until you learn to listen.” He says firmly. “No!” She says crossing her arms. “I Wisten.” She says. “I wan mummy! I wan Mummy!” She cries. You were upstairs gathering laundry, when you heard Ella’s outburst, so you went downstairs. “What’s wrong?” You ask Harry. “She was climbing on the counter and I took her off. I told her she knows she’s not allowed to do that, but she continued to try it anyway and then when I grabbed her again, she started kicking and screaming.” He says. You sigh. “Ella is that true? Did you not listen to Daddy?” You ask. “I jus wan juice.” She whispers sadly. “I big. I do it.” She whispers. You sigh kneeling down to her. “Baby. We know that you’re a big girl, but there are some things that you’re still too small to do. We don’t want you to get hurt. That’s why if you need something, you come get me or Daddy.” You say. “You could have fallen down from the counter and gotten really hurt.” You say rubbing her back. She sighs looking down. “No wan get hurt.” She sniffles. “I sowwy Daddy.” She whispers looking up at Harry sniffling. He sighs hugging her. “It’s okay. I know you want to be a big girl, but like Mummy said we don’t want anything to happen to you.” He says. She nods holding onto him tightly. “I till in timey out?” She sniffles. You look over at Harry and Harry looks back at you. He sighs. “No.” He says. You laugh shaking your head. “She’s got you wrapped around her finger.” You say as he Harry holds Ella. “It’s because she looks like you.” He laughs. “Oh, whatever, I don’t have you that wrapped around my finger.” You smirk. “That may be true, but you still have my heart.” He smirks. “You’re so cheesy.” You laugh heading into the kitchen. “Baby girl, do you still want some juice?” You ask. She nods to you. “Pwease.” She whispers. You smile grabbing her favorite little cup and pouring some apple juice in it before handing it do her. “Fank ya.” She whispers softly as she slowly drinks it. “It’s almost lunch time, I’m going to get Edward from the playroom.” You smile. Harry nods. “I’ll start lunch. Ella want to help me?” He asks. She nods quickly smiling. He smiles kissing her head before putting her down and bringing the stool over by him as he gets everything that he needs for lunch.
“Edward.” You smile. “Hi, Mummy!” He giggles as he runs his cars along the track. “Are you ready for lunch? Daddy and Ella are making it now.” You say. “No! I wan pway.” He says. “No hungi.” He says. You sigh. “Edward.” You say. “Daddy’s making your favorite and after lunch you can play a little before nap time.” You say. “No wunch, no nap. Pway.” He says turning away from you and go back to his cars. You sigh walking over to him. “Edward. Come on, we need to get you washed up.” You say. “No!” He shouts. “No go! Pway!” He says throwing a car towards you. “Edward Michael Styles!” You say. “You do not throw things at me or anyone for that matter and you do not raise your voice at me.” You say firmly. He looks at you before busting out in tears and hitting the ground. You sigh rubbing your forehead before picking him up. “If you don’t stop this right now, you won’t be able to play with your cars for the rest of the day.” You say firmly. “And when Ollie comes home, you won’t get to play cars with him.” You say. Edward looks at you sadly. “Pway Ollie.” He sniffles. “Then you stop this right now.” You say. “You have all the time in the world to play. You need to have lunch and have nap time.” You say. He sniffles and looks away from you. “Come on.” You say kissing his head before carrying him downstairs. “Brova!” Ella gasps walking over to him and hugging him after you put him down. He sniffles hugging her tightly. After lunch, you get the twins ready for their naps. “No nap!” Ella pouts. “No! Sweepy!” She giggles. “Ella remember what we said about listening.” Harry says. “I Wisten, but no sleepy, Daddy.” She giggles jumping up and down on the toddler bed. Edward giggles and starts doing the same in his bed. “If you two do not stop, we’re going to separate you and you both won’t be able to play for the rest of the day, even once Ollie comes home. No playing with the puppy either.” You say firmly. Both of them stop before starting to cry. Harry sighs sadly looking at you. You shake your head and tuck the kids in before leaving their room and shutting the door. “They’ll be fine. They’ll tire themselves out soon.” you say walking into your bedroom. “I know, I know, I just hate seeing and hearing them like that.” He sighs. “I don’t like our babies crying.” He pouts to you. You sigh. “I know you don’t. I don’t either, but we have to be firm with them. In case you haven’t notice we’re at that terrible twos stage.” You groan. “Which means they’re going to be like that at least every day.” You say. He groans. “I remember Ollie at that age.” He says. “And we thought he was a handful, now we have two handfuls at one time.” He jokes. “I blame you.” You say. “What? Why me?” He laughs. “Because you act like that most of the time when you don’t get your way.” You smirk. “I do not!” He whines. “See!” You laugh. He playfully glares at you before pushing you back on the bed and tickling you.
Later that day, you all were in the car getting Oliver from school. “Mummy!” He smiles when he sees you standing by the car. You giggle opening your arms for him. He smiles jumping into them. “I missed you!” He says hugging you tightly. “And I missed you. So much.” You smile kissing his head. He giggles and you help him get in the car. “Daddy!” He giggles. “Hi!” He smiles. “Hey, little man, how was school?” He asks. “Fun!” He giggles. “I don’t think I ever said that about school.” Harry laughs as he backs the car up to head home. “Brova!” The twins giggle at him. “Hi Hi!” Oliver smiles waving to them. “I missed ya!” He smiles. “Miss!” They both nod to him. You smile back at them before grabbing Harry’s hand. “So, I was thinking that maybe we could head to my Mum’s house this weekend after Ollie get’s out of school.” Harry says. “Maybe it will help with those terrible twos back there. We both know how my Mum can be. I mean she raised me and Gem, she had handfuls of her own.” He jokes. “So, you do admit that they get it from you.” You smirk. “Bloody Hell, I guess I did.” He laughs. “But you know you wouldn’t want me any other way.” He smirks. “Hmm. Nope.” You smile. “You’re perfect for me.” You smile. “Always have been.” You smile leaning over to kiss him, when all three kids groan and making yucky sounds from the backseats. You giggle. “What?” You say looking back at them. “I can’t kiss Daddy?” You ask. “No! It gross.” Oliver giggles. “Ya Goss!” Edward giggles. You smirk. “You’re right it is!” You joke. “Hey!” Harry groans. “I heard that!” He says. “And you didn’t seem to think I was gross this morning.” He smirks whispering to you. “Or last night, or this afternoon.” He adds. You groan hitting his arm. “Oh, shut it.” You giggle. He smirks over at you and soon he pulls in the driveway. Oliver gets himself out of the car and rushes to the door. “I can’t wait Pway wif ACE!” He giggles. “Well, you can play with him for a bit, but then we need to make time to look over your school folder.” You say getting Edward out. “Kay, Mummy!” He sighs nodding. When you get inside the house, all three kids rush to play with Ace outside as you and Harry stand near the door watching. “So, these terrible twos are making me rethink having tons of kids.” Harry jokes. You giggle wrapping your arms around him. “Me too.” You joke. “But you know what helps with that?” You ask. “What?” He smiles down at you. “Having kids with you and seeing the smiles at their happy faces making those terrible two moments worth it.” You smile. He smiles widely. “Are you suggesting on making another little Styles, Y/N?” He whispers. “Perhaps.” You smile up at him. Before Harry can respond you both hear,“Hey! I had dat first!” Ella groans to Edward as they both fight over Ace’s toy they were taking turns throwing. “Nuh, uh! I did!” Edward groans back. Oliver groans throwing his hands in the air walking over to them. “No, fighting!” He says trying to get the toy from them. “Or on second thought, let’s wait a few months or uh, years.” You laugh. “I agree.” He laughs before you both head outside to break up the mini fight in the backyard.
