Chapter 5 - Ending 1 - from 1A

Kim and Shego lay in bed. “You shouldn't have said that in front of the girls.”

“Why! Aren't they part of the family?

“Yes, but--”

“I've never liked, 'yes, buts.' If there is any chance of my saying yes they deserve to know what's going on from the very start. They don't need a surprise sprung on them the way you… I'm sorry, I didn't mean that.”

“No,” Kim said slowly. “You're probably right -- about the surprise anyway. Do you ever regret the girls?”

“Jesus, that's a stupid question. If I had a single regret do you think I'd even give Amy's offer two seconds of consideration?

“I remember when the day they first stood up, I remember when they first called me Eemah, I remember their first day of school… There are a lot of days I'd love to live all those moments over again.”

“I know what you mean. It's a good thing we really can't get each other pregnant in any normal way or we'd probably have seven running around the house.”

Shego snuggled closer to Kim, “I know exactly what you mean.”

“So let's get back to my 'but'--” Kim slapped Shego's hand, “Stop that! You know what I mean!”

Shego pouted, “You never let me have any fun.”

“You have way too much fun. You and I should have talked about it before we said anything in front of the girls. If we decide the answer is 'no', we don't want to consider trying for another baby they shouldn't have even known we had the discussion. It raises expectations in them.”

“You're right. I'm sorry. I should have talked with you first. But it was so funny when the water came out your nose.”

“I don't know if I can handle a fourth child.”


“The third is the crazy dangerous one; the one who tried to toast a fluffer-nutter sandwich.”

“Hey, it was a good idea. How was I to know marshmallow fluff would ignite in the toaster?”

“Let's get back to the real topic. Are you ready for two a.m. feedings and diaper changes?”

Shego reflected for a minute, “And teething, and fevers, and sleep deprivation… Will you think I'm selfish if I say I don't want to go through all that?”

“No more selfish than I am for not wanting what we have to change.”
