Things became chaos in a one parent household, but we pulled it together.
The twins are a handful, but Quentin takes care of himself. He does dishes and helps put the toddlers to bed.
I can tell Quentin’s still upset. His cousin visits fairly often. I’m not against him going over to his aunt’s house, but Ali and I haven’t talked much since I kicked him out.
I’m trying to be there for my kids. For Quentin especially.
And I’m never going to be unfriendly to Jarred or to Lacey. They aren’t the reason this is happening. He’s welcome at the house any time.
It was another quiet birthday for Quentin, partially out of time. I baked him a birthday cake, told him I loved him, and watched another year pass in front of my eyes.
He seemed happy at least. Probably just happy he’s got his own room again.
So many years have passed. We’ve come so far together. I’m not willing to give up on Ali, and I don’t want to keep any of my children from their father. All I’m focusing on right now is my children.
He’s grown up so fast, and now he’s going to do great things.
I can’t wait to see what happens next.
A/N: And this is the end of Gen 1! Starting next update, Quentin will be our main dude. I’m going to take a break from posting for about a week to organize what I’m going to do next. I may have a few story ideas I’ve kept on the back burner so I could focus on this and The Accidental Vampire, and we’ll see if I decide to give them some of the spotlight for a short while. I’ve also uploaded the Dabney family tree to this page, and the link for the Plumtree App version of it is here. Note that I’ve added all of the family’s future traits and aspirations, which may hint at future storylines.
