Theme: Baby finds daddy a soulmate
Written by Pinky Preshy Chioma
Mr Alex’s Pov:
I was still fast asleep when my door swung open.
“Daddy wake up it’s morning” They echoed in unison as I rolled from one side of the bed to another.
They were all shaking me vigorously.
I can’t believe this kids….
They were dragging my legs and hands.
“Daddy wakie wakie! It’s 6am already” Nicky’s tiny voice cried.
They are really a pin in the ass for me.
I opened my weak eyes and yawned.
“What are you guys…” I said but they cut me off
“Good morning daddy…” They said in unison.
I smiled at them.
Very funny kids…
“It’s too early guys” I said as they frowned and turned away my face.
“Of course not daddy… Let’s just go” Sandy said
“This is unacceptable OK! What about baby? She’s still fast asleep do you want her to be woken up this early?” I asked.
“She can sleep when we move please dad I can’t sleep anymore” Nicholas said
I heaved a sigh.
This kids are really pretty good in giving me trouble.
But believe me they are lovely.
After the death of my dear wife Clarissa, they’ve become the source of my strength.
I walked out of the room with them all over me.
We sat on the dinning ready to eat.
I watched them eat as fast as they could.
“Easy guys so that you won’t choke” I said concerned.
“Daddy I really want us to eat quickly so that we can leave” Nicholas said as I smiled.
Nanny Pop carried my beautiful baby Kira downstairs.
“Da… Da… Daaa….” Baby Kira chuckled.
She looked absolutely gorgeous in her cot.
I turned to Nicky and found out that she wasn’t eating.
“Nicky! Baby are you OK?” I asked anxiously as she smiled.
“Yes dad! Am losing my patience…so I told my nanny Mia to pack my food in the lunch box… I’ll eat in the car” She said sharply.
I snorted as I shook my head.
This children will never kill me.
Nicky is something else…
Nanny Pop prepared the baby’s milk in her feeding bottle.
Baby Kira took the feeding bottle and sucked through it.
She’s a smart little baby.
She’s just 7 months but she crawls.
She chuckled as she looked at me.
FEW MINUTES LATER…
We were all done and the children ran to the garage.
They were super excited.
The maids pushed our luggage into the car.
I can’t believe we are really going on this trip.
Finally daddy took a leave from work to go on this adventure.
I looked back at our mansion and smiled.
Thoughts of late mommy filled my mind and I blinked my eyes continuously to avoid crying.
Sandy carried baby Kira as we hopped into the car.
I sit in front of the car with daddy.
Wanna know why?
Because daddy and I are big guys…
“Mrs Charlotte did you pack my makeups?” Sandy asked sharply
I rolled my eyes.
“Yes! Everything is intact” Mrs Charlotte said
“Arrghh… Ladies stuff” Dad teased her and she smiled.
“Gosh! Sandy you’re such a drama queen” Nicky scoffed
“Shut up you naughty girl!” Sandy said
Dad started the car engine and the excitement increased.
“Hey! Wait sir!” That was nanny Pop.
She’s wasting our time.
She quickly handed a bag to Sandy and Nicky behind the car.
“That’s baby’s milk and diapers” She said as I picked up my phone.
Are you wondering why baby’s nanny is called nanny Pop?
Well that name was given to her by Nicky…
Her real name is Paulina.
Uhmm… Nicky was a lot younger then and can’t talk properly.
Nanny Paulina was so used to having lollipop in her mouth all the time
And Nicky started calling her Pop meaning lollipop.
It’s funny right?
Yeah! I know it is.
Dad drove out of the compound.
Wow! We hit the road.
Nicky fell asleep in the car while Nicholas plugged his headset into his ears.
Baby Kira was already fast asleep.
I looked through the window and smiled happily.
I hope this trip becomes fun.
So that I can have stories to tell my friends in school.
I was still lost in thought when suddenly something vibrated close to me.
I looked around and saw daddy’s phone.
Nicky took it earlier to play games but she slept off.
it was a message from Bella.
I picked it up.
Alex please I want you to come over to my place cancel the goddamned picnic with those pesky kids I read and my eyebrows arched in annoyance.
I was so furious.
“Dad…” I called in annoyance.
“Yes baby” Dad replied still focused on driving.
“Who is BELLA?” I asked anxiously.
Dad choked as he braked the car and the tyre screeched.
He gulped nervously….
