It had been 18 years since we told the cast of Glee about our relationship, 17 years since the day we married and 16 years since the birth of our first daughter. We now have three lovely daughters and a beutiful place we call home.
'Mami, where are my new shoes?' called Lexi-May our oldest from her room
'Where ever you left them hija' I replied
Spanish was a big part in our house. The kids may be more fluent then Heather but that hasn't stopped her having conversations with them in both english and spanish.
'Morning babe' said Heather walking into the kitchen, kissing me on the cheek
'You sleep okay?' I asked, coninuing to make the kids lunches
'Sure did' she replied taking a seat at the island counter in our kitchen
'Girls, darse prisa!' (Hurry Up!) I called up the stairs
'Coming Mami' yelled our two youngest. Amber was 9 and full of energy. She was a great dancer just like her Mom. Skye our youngest was 6 and had a big heart.
The kids took a seat next to Heather and I gave them their breakfast
'I'm not hungry' moaned Lexi trudging down the stairs
I heard the front door click open and she was about to wlk out before I stopped her
'Lexi-May Rivera come back here' I shouted
'What?' she screamed shutting the door and walking into the kitchen
'Where do you think your going?' asked Heather backing me up
'To school?' Lexi replied rudely. She was a troublemaker and often found herself in the princibles office. She was a cheerleader just like Heather and I were on glee and unfortuantly for us she was popular. Everyone loved her blah blah blah. She was always getting invited to parties and meeting up with different people. I just wanted her to be happy, and she is I think. But she was defiantly naughty.
'Well, you are not going until you have at least a piece of toast to eat. Then your mother or I will drive you to school' I replied
'Whatever' she replied, taking a seat at the counter and resting her head
'No hables a tu Mami as\u00ed' (Do not speak to your Mami like that) said heather 'Apologise Now'
'Sorry Mami' she replied
2 weeks later
'Mom, Mami, Can Sofia come back here tonight after the party?'
Sofia was Lea and Diana's daughter. They came out just a few months we did. Sofia came along a couple of months after Lexi and they were the best of friends.
'Woah, I never said you could go to the party?' replied Naya who was sitting on the couch next to me
'But Mom did' she replied smiling
'You're not going lexi' said Naya
'But Mami, Luke is going to be there. And I promised him I would go.'
Luke was Lexi's crush. He was nice and good looking but he was a Jock. The head Jock just like Lexi was the head cheerleader. However, he was a year older than Lexi and I didn't exactly trust him. Not yet anyway'
'Is Sofia going?' I asked
'Yes' she replied looking down to the floor
'Then you may go' I said taking charge, much to Naya's disgust 'But there are rules'
'No drinking, No Smoking, No drugs and certainly No boys' said Naya quickly
'I know, I know I Know' smiled Lexi 'And I wont'
'Hmmm' I said. We knew Lexi had drunk before but she tried to hide it from us and she wasnt drunk or anything. We cant exactly judge her as we were doing those things at her age. However, she was our baby and I wasnt going to let anything happen to her.
'Love you Mami, Love you mom' she said kissing us both on the head and then sauntering off to her room to get ready
'What have we let ourself in for' said Naya resting her head on my shoulder
'I know baby' I said 'Why don't we invite Lea and Diana for breakfast that way we get to see them for longer when they pick up Sofia in the morning?'
'Thats a good idea. I'll call them now'
'Sofia shhhhh' I slured
It was dark and I couldn't focus.
'Here, give it to me' Sofia practically screamed
We had been trying to get the key in the lock for the past 5 or so minutes. Each time we failed we ended up in fits of giggles. It was late. Later than curfew and I knew I would be in trouble for that and for drinking. I just hoped they couldnt smell the smoke on me
'Sofia! You're doing it wrong I said probably a bit to loud
Suddenly the door flew open
'Girls!' screamed my Mami 'What time do you cool this?'
'Ummm' I said looking to Sofia 'Time to take a chill pill'
Sofia and I began laughing
'I am not impressed. Get to bed, I will talk to you in the morning. Oh and Sofia your mom and Mommy will be hearing about this when they are over for breakfast'
'Whatever you say Aunty Nay'
Trying to get up the stairs was another battle. My Mami decided to watch us from the bottom in horror but she also laughing quietly. We were leaning on each other but we kept falling
'Lexxiii' slured Sofia 'Let's crawl'
'Good Idea Sof'
We dropped to our hands and knees and began making our way more successfully up the stairs
'Owww' I screamed
'Lexi shhhh' Sofia said putting her finger to her lips
'I banged my knee' I said whispering
'You are so funny' replied Sofia laughing. This set me off laughing.
'Girls' Mami said again 'To bed. NOW'
The rest of the night was a blur.
