"I can't believe you're making macaroni for breakfast," Carmen said as he headed to grab Acai.
"You're just mad I'm not making hot dogs," I teased.
And it was still good.
Interesting. I've narrowed it down to two.. men? That's quite strange, but hey, I don't pick the suspects. I should speak to the first one, Gus Hart, about the missing shoes.
"And when's the new addition due?" he asked, smiling at my mid-section.
"What new addition?" I asked.
He glanced up at me in surprise. "You do realize you're pregnant again, right?"
Oh for the love of plumbbob. No wonder I had problems zipping up my dress for the party! "Whoa... wait until I tell Carmen!" I said, stunned. Two babies under two. Life was about to get crazy.
Acai's wails distracted me from those morbid thoughts.
"Thorton! Stop! Don't shake the baby!" I snapped. "Put her down!"
Thorton just looked at me with confusion across his face and tucked Acai against his chest.
I sighed. People loved grabbing babies that didn't belong to them. "She needs a diaper change," I said, thinking that would have him handing Acai over in 5 seconds flat.
Nope. I wracked my brain. How else to make someone release your baby? I know. Something that required two hands. "Shaka bra!" I said, waving my hands in the surfer greeting.
"Oh, hold on a moment," Thorton said, laying Acai in her crib. "Shaka..."
I pointed at Leighton sternly. "Not on your life, buddy. Don't even think about picking her up!" I rushed to the crib and grabbed Acai before any other well-meaning guests could stall me. Quickly, I changed her diaper and fed her.
"Ah, good job," Thorton nodded in approval. "She's stopped crying."
(AN: I hate it when guests grab the baby and then just snuggle and play with them. If you're going to grab the baby, change a diaper and feed them! At the very least, let the mother actually get to them! Lol!)
"Alright, Acai!" Carmen cheered and clapped. He was so cute. He totally got into it! One of the many things I loved about him, I thought with a smile.
"Happy birthday, Acai," I said, setting her on the floor.
I finished the last bite and shrugged. Mac n' cheese was still better!
