Mae is an adorable toddler. Even though her and Michael’s biological mother turned out to be a crazy killer I don’t hold it against them. I love all of my kids with all my heart and nothing will ever change that.
Having my mom and dad home has been great. Mom has been teaching Mae her skills.
Dad helps the older kids with their homework. They also play chess together.
Marie has started dating Regan Kuykendall.
Mom decided to give her the birds and bees talk. I had given it to all the boys but was struggling with what to say to my daughter. I always figured Riley would do that. But really their isn’t anyone better suited to give that talk than my mom. Not only does she know first hand what it is like to be a teen mother she was also a OBGYN for many years and provided a home for pregnant teenage girls.
Mom also cooks homemade meals for us.
And we have been eating as a family.
We had a birthday party for Michael and Maurice.
And invited all of our friends and family.
Max and Lara came and announced that they are expecting their first child. I can’t believe I am about to become a grandfather.
Michael is now a young adult. He had always wanted to be an athlete so we were all surprised when he decided to join the military instead.
Maurice is now a teenager. They just grow up so fast.
I am still studying Alchemy in hopes of discovering the Philosopher’s Stone.
While I am doing better I am still not fully recovered from my mental breakdown. I saw Greg the other day and I remembered wanting to punish him for cheating on my sister. He always thought he was such hot stuff so I gave him an elixir I called “Large and In Charge”.
He instantly gained like 200 lbs.
And because I thought it would be hilarious I also turned him into a tragic clown.
I was right. It was hilarious. The clown elixir should wear off after 24 hours. The best part was he has a major board meeting before then.
Other times I try to help people with my elixirs. I gave a heavy set lady at the family gym one called “Lean and Mean”.
And she lost over 200 lbs.
I admit I have become a bit addicted to the elixirs. Every night I drink one that helps me learn skills in my sleep.
Then I take an other one that helps me sleep.
I also take one every day before work that helps my job performance.
I also experiment on myself.
I used one to turn myself into a wizard. I thought maybe I could find a spell that would turn Riley real.
Mom hates it when I experiment on myself and when she caught me using the wizard spell she started yelling at me.
I hate when mom is upset with me so I used a cure elixir to turn me back.
I promised to stop experimenting on myself and also to limit the amount of regular elixirs I use.
Mom thought it would help if we started doing more normal family things. I went to visit Max and see my first grandchild a beautiful baby boy named Nolan.
We went to the park. Mom and dad looked so cute together on that bench.
I took Mae on the rides.
Later I finished up her potty training.
And read her a story.
We few months later we celebrated Mae’s birthday.
I think she is such an adorable little girl.
Now that all the kids are older I took them all camping. It was great having dad there too. I invited Mae and Marie but they decided to stay home and have a girls day with their grandma.
We went fishing.
Dad grilled hamburgers.
We all roasted marshmallows except for Michael. He decided to roast the fish he had caught earlier in the day.
Nobody’s marshmallows caught on fire this time.
Before bed dad told a ghost story he had learned while he was in Egypt. I admit it was really scary. We all had a wonderful time.
That trip was made even more meaningful because a few days later dad was just getting out of bed.
When the grim reaper came for him.
Mom begged the grim reaper not to take dad.
But dad shook the grim reaper’s hand. He was ok with death. He was 107 years old.
We buried him in the family cemetery and mom planted some beautiful flowers by his grave.
I tried to be their for mom as best I could. I guess we both know what it feels like to lose the love of our life.
Michael and Hollie have been dating for years. I guess seeing his grandfather die prompted Michael to finally propose.
The two got married right on the spot.
They both love fishing so they got a house not to far away that is right near the ocean. The house also has plenty of space for all of the kids Hollie wants to have.
I did it! I finally found out how to bind Riley’s ghost to me. She won’t be alive but at least I will be able to see her and talk to her.
