As we all sat down for lunch, I looked at Niall who kept smiling at me.
It almost made me laugh.
He was so excited and I was too, but I wondered if right now was a good time to tell the girls...
Skyla suddenly started talking.
"So are we coming on tour this year with you daddy?" She asked.
"Yes, you all are." He says smiling.
She smiles and starts eating again.
"And mommy?" Bella asks.
"I'll be going as well to watch over you three." I say smiling. "We're going to talk more about it, we just have to tell you something first."
"Like what mommy?" Isla's little voice made me smile.
To think that their was a five year age difference between all of them was funny in way, considering how much older they acted at times...
"Well, mommy is going to have a baby." Niall says.
All of the girls stop eating, sandwiches in mid-air, I almost laugh at the looks on their faces.
"A...Baby?" Skyla asks, slowly looking over at me.
I nod. "It's true."
"Aw!!!! How sweet!" Bella says.
"When will the baby be here?" Isla asks.
I was confused by her question.
"In about nine months, why?" I ask.
"That way I have enough time to hide all of my treasures." She says.
I laugh a little. That was Bella alright.
I finished my sandwich and Skyla volunteered to do the dishes.
"Thank you, sweetheart." I say.
"No problem, mom." She says smiling.
After a few more rounds of questions, Bella and Isla scurried off to their rooms.
Niall and I stayed behind in the kitchen, with Skyla.
"Sweetheart, how do you feel about all of this?" I asked her.
"Its...." She began, trying to choose the right word. "Different..."
I nod. "I understand."
"It's not that I'm not happy," She says turning around and drying her hands off. "But don't you think that you and dad waited a little late? I mean, I'll be sixteen this year!"
"I know, I know...It was mainly I who took my own sweet time deciding." I say.
"What do you mean?" She asks walking over to the table and sitting down.
"Well, your father had asked me a while back, and it was just two weeks ago when I'd finally made my decision." I say.
She nods. "I just...It's weird how I'll be so much older than the baby."
I smile. "You know, I have a friend in Tennessee that I've known ever since I was a really little girl...We still keep in touch, but her oldest brother, is twice her age. When she was fifteen, he was thirty, but she didn't mind."
Skyla's eyes widen. "I know, but it just feels weird to me."
"Think of it this way..." I say. "You can be a big sister to this little one. You'll be there for him or her and help them along. I know that you'll already be a big sister to him or her, and that you already are to Bella and Isla, but you'll be a bigger big sister....I hope I'm making sense."
"You are." She says. "I'll be able to take the him or her to my house to give you a break and to spend time with him or her. I'll also be the one that they can turn to when they need too."
I smile. "Exactly."
She smiles. "I love you mommy."
"I love you too, Skyla." I say.
"I'm gonna go upstairs, I've got to clean my room up a little bit before we leave for the tour." She says smiling.
Niall and I watch her as she leaves the kitchen.
"Well," He says. "That went well."
"It did, didn't it?" I say.
He smiles, and kisses my hand. "You are very sexy today."
I roll my eyes. "You say that to me almost everyday."
"It's so true too." He says smiling.
I laugh and get up, going to do some things around the house.
