in the midst of the evening

Kat felt bad that Emily nor Archie didn't get to hang around for the good times at the wedding. It was quite relaxing. Then to have her sister there, even made it better. Naturally, Christine was making over and teasing her about being pregnant at her age.

"Enough," Kat told her finally. "I don't want to hear it. Not from you."

"I'm just trying to get you ready for the next nine months," Christine smiled. "Oh God, and then it gets worse."

"Shut up." They giggled as if they were the only two who could say these sort of things to each other.

"I just wish you could drink a bottle of champagne with me." Christine shrugged.

"Yeah, well, I'm glad I can pass on that." Kat sighed. "That stuff gives me a headache, anyway."

"You were fun, at one time."

"I still am." Kat looked over at Parker and smirked.

Along came Bella with a plate a fresh strawberries and watermelon, blueberries too.

"Bella, when are you going to have that baby?" Christine asked.

"Can't be soon enough," she yawned.

Christine hugged herself and looked around at all the pregnant women. "I swear there must be something in the water. I best not be drinking any of it."

Bella and Kat smiled at each other.

"You know, that would be funny if you got pregnant too." Kat nudged her sister.

"Are you kidding me!" Christine shook her head, no. That's when she told Kat that she'd separated from her husband.

Very relaxing day in the end. Lots of fresh fruit is a great idea. I think Christine is one of those strong women who can manage just fine without a man.

Glad Christine told her, I'm sure she'll be fine, she seems like a strong woman. Although having a little pregnant ladies club would be fun lol.

I like the fact that Christine doesn't sound down about the separation. Looks like it's going to be a brand new beginning for her.

Everyones pregnant these days, it's oh so very true. Theres an eighth grader that is at my school and it's really heart breaking to see that she's lost all her friends and stuff. I haven't seen her around much lately though....


thanks for your words of encouragement :)
