It All Makes Sence to Me: These Litttle Things

The third and final book in the "Bear this in Mind' series, following "Meant to Be" contines on, skipping about 8 years ahead from "MTB".

In the story, Liam and Claire Payne have a big family of their own, and are doing a pretty goof job of figuring out what it's all about. However, not everything is easier with a family, over half of marriages end in divorce, and families can easily be torn apart and destroyed. Will they be able to beat the statistics with all of the crazy things that will be happpening in the future?

I hope you enjoy this book, and feel free to comment ANY suggestions you might have! Xxxx


2. Family Vacay

We are in the car, heading to the Holiday house, like we still do every year.

"Mommy are we almost there yet?", Taylor whined.

"Taylor, mommy already told you only one more hour sweetie", I said. Then, the song "When I Was Your Man" came on the radio.

"Noo mom not this!", the girls whined but i turned it up louder. Liam face palmed himself as I began to sing.

"This is mommy's song...", Liam said. "But its soooo old!", Riley whined. "Riley babe, it came out when I was 17, two years before you were born!", I said.

An hour later, we finally arrived...FINALLY! When we got all of the kids out of the car, I saw Demi first, giving her a huge hug, then I saw Harry and I basically attacked him.

"Oh my god! HARRY!!!", I said.

"Claire!!! Question: why are you soo excited to see me?", he asked.

"Um because I missed you...", I said. "Now, is Darcy here?", I asked him. "Ya, shes inside with her mommy", Harry responded.

After greeting everyone, we all went inside and saw the baby. Jake and Riley skipped away into the other room where they talked forever, so did Taylor and Brooklyn.

I, on the other hand talked to Demi, Perrie, Abby (holding Darcy), and Eleanor while the other kids did their own thing and Liam, Niall, Harry, Louis and Zayn were catching up as well.

Afterward, Niall announced to everyone "Im hungry and i don't even care right now!". "Babe, why don't you go order some pizza or something?", Demi said. "Ok, someone get me a phone", Niall said and Demi dug out her cell. "Here, take this....", she said handing it to him and he gladly took it, exiting the room.

Soon, pizza was at the door and we all ate. Then, it was time for bed, and I tell you, we had fun trying to decide sleeping arrangements for the kids for over an hour. Finally, we agreed on Riley and Jake on one bed (it was absolutely harmless; they are only 8 and best friends plus they had their own blankets), Hunter and Carter, Leo, Ryan, and James, Brooklyn and Taylor, Lily, Lacey and Jasmine, Violet and Carly, and Susan was happy because she got her "own" bed. After tucking them in, Harry and Abs were trying to get Darcy to sleep, and I was struggiling to stay awake in Liam's arms in the living room with the other adults. "You know, this pregnancy is making me really tired and I can't even help it", I said. "That's what happens when you keep having kids", Louis chimed in. "We're done after this one, trust me, four is the limit!", I said. Liam nodded in agreement. "And so you think...", Niall added in. "Oh I will mess you up, boy!", I called after him. "If you can catch me momma!", he said. "Unlikely, look at what I have to carry around, another person", I responded. "Excuses, excuses, excuses", Niall said sighing. "I can still ground you", I threatened. "Oh no...not the grounding!", Niall said which made me laugh. However, I couldnt keep my eyes open any longer, so Liam and I went to bed.   I was restless through the whole night so far. That explains a lot when you're wide awake at 2 AM, pregnant, and don't have to pee. "Beautiful, is everything alright?", Liam rolled over asking me still half asleep. "Li, w...what if he comes early?", I asked. "He's not going to baby", Liam said kissing my forehead. "I know im being ridiculous, but seriously babe...or what if somethings wrong with him or he doesnt love us, or......", I started tearing up. "Sssh...Claire trust me everythings gonna be just fine. Now, why dont you try and get back to sleep, okay? I love you", Liam said kissing me, then snuggiling up to me as i calmed down, breathing in his scent and drifting in and out of sleep like before.

Tonight was just one of those nights, I guess.   In the morning, we were woken up by Ryan at 7 AM. We got up instantly, then headed into the living room to turn tv on for him, but then we saw Leo and James already down there. "Leo!James!", Ryan said without a breath in between. "Wanna play superheroes with us, Ryan?", James asked. "Yes!", Ryan enthusiastically responded, running over to them. Then, they disappeared, and I found Darcy and Abby on the couch, Abby trying to get Darcy to eat. "Is she having trouble, momma?", I asked her politely. "Yea, she's just having a really hard time latching on", Abby responded, sounding exhausted and a little irritated. "Darcy, c'mon. Please, for mommy!", Abby said to her one week old daughter, but that didn't seem to help much. "You know, Riley gave me the same problem until she was about a month old", I assured her. "So, its not just me", she responded. "Right, its totally normal Abs", I told her and she looked relieved. "Thanks for everything, love you!", she said. "Aw love you too, and anytime", I replied, heading outside on the porch with Liam, Louis, Niall, Demi, and Eleanor as Harry headed over by Abby and Darcy. "You know, we should take the the beach today! It would be fun...", Eleanor suggested. "Yah, i think they would like thaT", I responded. "Well then, lets get them!", Niall said. "Niall, we have to make sure we're ready before we get all of the kids, because then we actually have time to get everything ready", Demi responded. "Good idea!", Liam responded. "Thanks!" Demi said enthusiastically. Then, we all got ready, got the kids, and took the really short walk to the beach.

"Hey, none of you three are going anywhere without sunscreen", I said. "And, Riley don't give me that look, I know how you burn", I said slathering Ryan with sunscreen.

"Ok, Ryan you're good!", I said. Then, I did the same to Taylor and Riley, and let them go wherever, too.

"C, Perrie brought magazines!", Demi called out to me.

"Um, coming!", I Said and Liam followed me, then heading towards the boys. "Ok, you HAVE to read this one, I was laughing so hard about all the fake shit they say about us", Perrie said, handing it to me.

"Watch your mouth, Perrie", Eleanor joked. "Awh they're far enough away from us, anyways. "I heard that, mommy!", Violet said. "Well, dont repeat it sweet heart!", Perrie told her oldest daughter. "I won't, and that's what Daddy always says!", she responded. "Oh really? Im gonna have to talk to Daddy about this then. "Mom, but please be nice, I love my daddy!", She responded. "I love your daddy too, so i promise i won't hurt him Violet!", Perrie assured. "Ok", Violet said skipping away.  

We stayed at the beach for the remainder of the rest of the day, and Liam carried sleeping Ryan, unless he was as good of a fake sleeper as I was.   When we arrived home, we ate dinner, then tucked everyone in bed. Afterwards, the adults headed out to the porch to look up at the stars, and talk about everything we missed out on. "Did we ever tell you about the time that Ryan colored all over the wall?", I asked. "Nooooo", Abby said. "Well, yea. Ryan came up to me, and he was like "Mom, i wanna color!", so I said "Ok" without even thinking about what I was saying. Then, about an hour later, Liam came downstairs with Ryan, and didn't look happy. "Do you wanna tell mom what you did?", Liam asked. "Momma. I sorry! I drewed you a picture on...a no no place", he explained to me and it was the cutest thing ever i swear. "Where did he draw it?", I asked Liam and he told me it was upstairs, on the wall. I saw it, and it was marker and crayon scribbles all over one of the walls outside his room".

Then, I showed them a picture of it. "Oh no, what did you do?", Harry asked. "We put him on timeout, and repainted the wall", Liam said. "Oh and he's not allowed to color unless someone is watching him", Liam explained. A few minutes later, we heard footsteps, and I saw it was Riley.

"i...can't get to sleep", she said quietly. "Come here Riley, daddy wants to show you something", Liam said and Riley sat in his lap. "Look up at the sky", he said and she listened. "Whoa!", she said and her eyes lit up. "Do you see that, right there?", he said pointing to something, trust me I'm horrible with constellations. "That's called the big dipper, and that is the little dipper", Liam told her. "That's so cool!", she said gasing at the stars for a long time. "When I was little, my dad used to show those to me at night sometimes, and I used to think it was the coolest thing ever", Liam told her. "Thank you daddy, i love you", she said kissing his cheek. "I love you, too! Goodnight now", he said and she tiptoed off to bed.

"Good job baby!", I said kissing him.  

The next day, we decided we were going to go shopping, girls only. The only girls who didn't come were Abby and Darcy, because Darcy was still really little, not even two weeks old yet.  

When I was getting ready, Riley came in and sat on the bathroom counter, as I did my hair and makeup. "Mommy, I want you to tell me stories about when I was a baby!", she said

. "Ok, what do you want to know?", I asked her.

"Anything!", she responded.

"Ok, well first, lets see, you only wanted me to hold you, nobody else not even your dad could hold you at first without you crying and putting up a fuss about it, so for almost a month Daddy though you didn't like him or something", I explained.

"Mom, i'll be right back...", Riley said. "Um okay?", I said and she exited the room.  

I was in the kitchen, talking to Demi when Riley ran over to me, crying.

"Whats the matter?", I asked her, and she gave me a huge hug. "Sorry for not liking you when I was really really little, I love you and i dont want anyone else to be my daddy!", she said.

"Riley, w..what are you talking about!", I said picking her up.

"Mommy told me when I was a little baby, that you though I didn't like you", she told me.

"Riley, its okay! I love you too, you are my favorite first daughter in the whole entire world, I love you!", I told het setting her down, hugging her and kissing her before she came into the other room.

Then, Taylor rushed over in tears. "Daddy....why do you love Riley more than me?", Taylor asked crying.

"Taylor, honey, I love you both the same!", I assured her.

"No, but you told Riley she was your favorite, I heard it with my own ears", Taylor insisted.

"Nooooo, Taylor I told Riley she was my favorite first daughter, because she was born first, just like you're my favorite second daughter because you were born second", I tried explaining.

"Oh, sorry daddy", She said wiping her eyes.

"Its okay Taylor! I love you sweetie!", I said kissing her before she found Brooklyn and disappeared.

I turned to Demi and said "Why do I have to deal with them when they get all emotional?", Liam said.

"Just wait till they get their periods....", Demi responded.

"Oh god no! Claire is enough to handle when she's on hers!", I responded and Demi laughed.

"When I'm on my what?", Claire asked from behind me.

"Your period", Demi quickly responded. Claire nodded, fully in agreement.
