21. Going 'Shopping'

Sean’s POV

         I held Addie in my arms as we made our way to the car. I opened her car door and fastened her into her seat. I shut her door and climbed into the driver’s seat. I shut my door, buckled my seatbelt and turned the key in the ignition. I pulled out into the street and went down the road. I took a left, right, left, right, left, right and finally another left before emerging from our neighborhood and turning onto the busiest highway in Vancouver. I pulled into traffic and sped up. I turned into the left lane and took the fastest route to Lowe’s.

         I pulled into the Lowe’s parking lot and found a parking spot close to the entrance. I turned off the car and unbuckled. I opened my car door and got out, I slammed the car door closed. I opened Addie’s door and unbuckled her seat. I lifted her out of her seat and let her down on the ground. She shut her door and waited to take my hand. She held my hand and we walked. If she still had a binky she would look even cuter. I took her hand and we walked into the building.  I grabbed a cart and put Addie in the front of the basket. I walked over to the paint section and selected a few colors. A business associate came over and gave me assistance. She had pretty auburn curls and the brightest blue eyes. She took a liking to Addie and assisted me in choosing paints.

“Hello, do you need any help?”
“Yes I’m painting a nursery. We don’t know the gender but already have furnishings.”

“What type of furnishing do you have?”

“Let’s see we have a baby changing station that’s white with rainbow colored swirls. We have a rocking cradle made out of white lace with rainbow trim and then a white crib with rainbow colored bars and a lot of rainbow colored sheets. My wife loves rainbows and feathers. All the feather décor in the room are rainbow”

“Well it seems like the room is a rainbow room. I suggest you paint the ceiling a nice blue and paint on clouds. I would hang a light fixture that represents the sun.”

“That’s awesome. How about a rainbow scene with flowers and animals in a meadow? Then I can paint the child’s name in the gender color when we pick a name and a gender.”

“Yes, that’s a good idea. I’ll get you a couple nursery magazines and let you continue shopping.”

         She placed a hand on my shoulder and walked off. I walked back over to the cart and Addie watched me. She was a bit small for three- year-old. She would be nearly four when the baby was born. I picked her up out of the basket and put her on my hip. The lady brought me a magazine and then left. I looked through with one arm and looked through the mag with another hand. I threw the magazine in the cart and put Adelaide back in.

         I stood in front of the paint samples and looked at the shades and names. I started in the reds, then orange, yellow, green, blue, violet and indigo. Real red, Positive red, or heartthrob but I threw real red into the basket. Navel, Carnival or Osage orange, I threw in Carnival. Daisy, Confident Yellow or Lemon twist I chose Daisy. Electric Lime, Center stage or direct green, I selected electric lime. Dynamic blue, major blue or blue plate, Addie seemed to like blue plate. The last two colors were morning glory and passionate purple. The sales associate came back over and picked up my samples.

“Oh you chose Real Red, Carnival, Daisy, Electric Lime, Blue plate, Morning Glory and Passionate Purple. Good selections. You might want to check out Sherwin Williams as well.”

“Thank you. I didn’t catch your name.”

“It’s Victoria.”

“Thank you Victoria. Where are your painting supplies?”
“Aisle 3.”

         I put the paint samples in my pocket and pushed Addie and the basket down to aisle three. I found paintbrushes, rollers, trays and tape. I threw in four rolls of tape; I bought three different paintbrushes and two trays. I refused to ask for help, I would do my baby’s nursery on my own. I stood around for a few more minutes and finally finished. I made my way to check out and bought Addie a candy bar.

“$78.45”

“Is that all?”
“Yes you have a discount?”

“Why?”

“You’re not here with a mum so you’re doing this project yourself. You get the new daddy discount.”
“Well thanks.”
“No problem.”

         I lifted Addie out of the cart, grabbed the bags and walked back towards the truck. I threw the bags into the back of my pickup and opened Addie’s car door. I buckled her seatbelt and shut the door. I climbed into the driver’s seat, turned the key in the ignition and closed my door. I turned on some tunes and drove out of the Lowe’s parking lot. I pulled into traffic and glanced up in the mirror. She was dancing around in her car seat and giggling.

“Daddy?”

“Yes Addie.”

“Am I going to be a big sister?”

“Yes you’re going to be a big sister.”

“Will you still love me?”
         I pulled the car over into the Hobby Lobby parking lot and turned off the car. I got out of my seat and got into the backseat. I unbuckled Addie and let her sit on my lap. I held her close and wiped away her tears.

“Yes Addie I will still love you. No matter what your mommy and I will always love you. Getting a new baby doesn’t mean we won’t love you, that just means there is going to be more love to go around. Don’t you worry about us not loving you? I will always love you. Your mama will always love you.”

         Addie looked up at me and kissed my cheek. I kissed her forehead and put her back into her car seat. I climbed back into the car and then turned around at her and said.

“You want to go to Hobby Lobby?”

“No.”

“Okay we’ll go to Sherwin Williams and then we’ll go pick up breakfast.”

“Okay.”

         I backed out of the parking spot and drove across the street. I pulled up by the front of the store and I quickly turned off the car and climbed out. I grabbed a basket and opened Addie’s door. She had already unbuckled her seat and was ready to climb in. She climbed in and we both proceeded to walk into the store. I walked in and I pushed the cart to the paint section. I looked at my paint samples and pulled a few buckets of paint off the walls. I grabbed a sky blue color and then a sales associate came over. Her name was Stephanie. She came over and talked to me.

“Can I help you?”

“Yes. I need to find these colors.”

         I handed her the paint samples and she listed them off one by one.

“Real Red, Carnival, Daisy, Electric Lime, Blue plate, Morning Glory and Passionate Purple. I think we have all those colors. Seven colors. You’re going to need primer.”

“Okay. I also need a sky blue and a cloud white.”

“I think I can find something. Be right back.”

         She handed me back the paint samples and walked off. I sifted through more paint samples and she returned with a cart. She had two gallons of primer and two gallons of sky blue paint. In that very moment I changed my mind. I took the blue paint and the primer. I stuffed the samples back into my pocket and then conversed with her.

“My wife and I are having a baby. Let’s see we have a baby changing station that’s white with rainbow colored swirls. We have a rocking cradle made out of white lace with rainbow trim and then a white crib with rainbow colored bars and a lot of rainbow colored sheets. My wife loves rainbows and feathers. All the feather décor in the room are rainbow. I was going with a rainbow but I changed my mind.”

“I would go with rainbow colored swirls and lacey design then I would paint the child’s name in cursive on the wall in pink or blue depending on the child’s gender. The background would be white. I would make the child’s room all ages.”

“Thank you Stephanie. Here take the blue. I need five gallons of white paint and two gallons of each of the seven colors. Do you have any stencils?”

“Actually we have perforated rollers that will role swirls onto the walls. It’s really neat. Or you can get one of those tarps. I think hand drawn will be better. How long do you have?”

“Eight months until he or she is born.”

“You have plenty of time. When are you doing it?”

“Three to four hours each night.”

“You five gallons of primer, five gallons of white paint, and fourteen gallons of colored paint. Do you have all the brushes and trays and rollers?”

“Yes just bought them at Lowes.”

“Is any one helping you?”

“Nope but my mate Colin and my mate Marcus are busy with their lil ones. I could hire a painter but that takes meaning out of the nursery. I want both my lil ones to be happy with their daddy. We haven’t been to the doctor yet either.”

“It might be twins. You’ll have to double the furniture. What are you doing for a light fixture?”

“ I think Lana has some rainbow colored nova chandelier in the attic. I’ve seen it before.”

“That’ll fit right in. You’re wife will be so happy. Especially if it’s a baby girl, the lil princess will love her nursery.”

“Thank you. Will you ring me up please?”

“Two five gallons and fourteen gallons. That rings up as $260.54.”

         I pulled out 2 hundred-dollar bills, three 20’s and another dollar.

“Keep the change.”

“Thank you sure. Would you like help carrying it to your car?”

“No thank you. I can do it myself.”

         I loaded all 24 gallons of liquid into the cart and pushed it outside. I showed my receipt and loaded Addie up into the car. She buckled her seat belt and I shut her door. I loaded the paint up into the back and Lana texted me.

Where are you it’s been four hours?

Sorry we went to the store.

We’re picking up food now.

Be home soon, I promise.

You better get home soon.

I want my little baby girl.

I need to make a dr.’s appointment.

I’ve had time to shower, dress, and do my face.

I’ve had time to redress and clean up a bit.

You’ve been gone for four hours.

Don’t pick up breakfast pick up lunch.

Okay be home soon.

“Addie sweetness?”

I asked as I turned the car on. I pulled out of Sherwin Williams and pulled into traffic.

“Yes Daddy?”

“What do you want for lunch?”

“Why lunch?”

“It’s past breakfast and Mommy’s a little upset that we stayed out so long.”

“Subway”

“Maybe.”

“Please Daddy?”

“Yes Addie.”

         I drove a few miles and stopped at the subway drive through. I glanced through the menu and tried to figure out what to get Addie and what to get Lana and what to get myself.

“Hello, welcome to Subway. What can I do for you today?”

“Yes I would like two large root beers and a chocolate milk. I would like a dozen macadamia nut cookies and a six-inch sub on plain bread with ham, cheddar cheese and a small amount of mayo. Cut in half please?”

“Two large root beers, chocolate milk, 12 macadamia nut cookies and a six- inch sub with plain bread, ham, cheddar cheese and a small amount of mayo?”

“Yes.”

“Will that be all?”

“No. Can I also foot long Philly cheese steak sub with extra meat and cheese, toasted and a foot long sub with bacon, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, mushroom, and spinach, toasted, with herb and garlic bread?”

“Foot long Philly cheese steak sub with extra meat, cheese, and toasted?  You also want a foot long sub with bacon, mozzarella, pepperoni, mushroom, and spinach on garlic and herb bread? You also want that toasted?”

“Yes please.”

“Is that all?”

“Yes.”

“Please pull up to the window. That’ll be $32. 67.”

“Okay thanks.”

         I pulled up to the window and pulled out 33 dollars.

“Keep the change.”

“Okay pull up to the second window.”

         I pulled up to the second window and was handed a bag of cookies, the drinks and three bags with sandwiches, straws and napkins. I handed Addie a cookie and ate one myself.

“Shush don’t tell Mommy.” I whispered.

“Okay Daddy.” She whispered.

         I turned on the radio and began driving home. Lana called me over the stereo and we all had a chat.

“Hey Baby what’s up?”

“Nothing, it’s just lonely. I’ve scheduled a doctor’s appointment for September.”

“It’s July though. Why not next month?”

“I’m only a month pregnant. I want to go in September.”

“Okay.”

“Did you get lunch?”

“Yes we got Subway.”

“Did you get drinks?”

“Yes Lana we did.”

“Hi baby.”

“Hi Mommy.”

“Are you having fun with Daddy?”

“Yes we went to the store.”

“What did you get?’

“We were just looking.”

“Okay sweetness. See you soon.”

         Lana hung up and I looked at Addie through the mirror.

“Why did you do that? I didn’t tell you to do that.”

“I knew the paint was a surprise.”

“You’re too smart for your own good. We need to get you in school.”

“No not school.”

“Not for a few more years, so don’t worry.”

“Okay Daddy.”
