❛ My 5k run was interrupted by a message from my sister showing her enjoying a nice evening in London. So I’m thinking this is prime time to finally use the ‘my parents love my sister more than me’ card and enjoy a bit of that teenage angst people seem to like so much. I’m just wondering if the lock yourself in a room hating the world is necessary or if I can skip to getting drunk with the worst influences I can find. ❜
You rubbed your eyes with a loud sigh, trudging down the stairs. The lights in the house were dimmed, the only source coming from the TV that played endless commercials that had been long forgotten. Having a one year old had it’s ups and downs, and to Luke and you, bed time was definitely one of the downsides. It usually took more time than expected to get her to fall asleep with her constant energy. but with much persistence and a fifteen minute crying session, your little girl was finally asleep.
Flopping onto the couch next to Luke, you adjusted the baby monitor and threw it on the couch cushion beside you, curling yourself into his side and closing your eyes.
“She’s finally asleep?” You felt one of his arm pull you into a half hug as you nodded your head.
The house was a mess; baby toys, abandoned Cheerios, unused diapers, and even her favorite stuffed alligator toy that Luke bought her at the zoo littered the floor, a constant reminder that even if you cleaned it would always end up to back to this state. Luke was equally tired next to you with his blond hair messed up from the little one pulling and playing with it (her favorite toy.)
The absence of sound was comforting. Ever since your daughter came into the world, silence was golden; loud cries and laughs during the day echoed in your head constantly, mixed with the animated voices of whatever show she was watching with Luke as they ate breakfast together on the floor. The TV’s volume was lowered, illuminating light onto Luke’s tired but beautiful face.
“I know what you’re thinking,” Luke said, absentmindedly rubbing his thumb on your arm.
Your head throbbed with the headache that haunted you for the past few hours. You buried your face more into the soft fabric of his favorite gray shirt, sighing loudly. “It’s just hard sometimes. Nobody said being a parent would be this difficult.”
Luke rested his head on top of your’s. “But you know what?”
“It’s all worth it.”
You looked around your living room, the place where your new family spent most of their time in. Your eyes fixated on the stroller pushed in the corner next to the TV. Smiling fondly, you remembered taking your daughter out on walks in the park with Luke, taking turns pushing the stroller and feeding her Cheerios until she insisted she wanted to ride on daddy’s shoulders. Luke swiftly picked her up and carefully placed her on his broad shoulders like he usually did, bouncing up and down every so often as she giggled and laughed, running her tiny hands through his hair that much resembled her’s. She gurgled with her tiny smile, clapping her hands. “Daddy! Mommy!”
Your heart melted, thinking about all the memories you had with your family already. “You’re totally right.”
Luke rubbed his eyes and smiled. “I guess it’s our bed time now too.” Picking up the alligator toy from the floor, he placed it on your head with a laugh. “See you later, alligator.”
does anyone get mad when they do something and someone else does the same thing but it’s so much better than yours? and then you get irrationally mad and upset but you shouldn’t be? because it’s not just your thing, you didn’t copyright it so other people can do it too but you’re still mad? does that happen to anyone or just me?
