Chapter Two- A Day In The Life Part I

Hermione: Your Pregnancy: Week 29

Thanks to your ever-expanding uterus, it's time to welcome back the constant bathroom dashes. And try your best to forget about any emerging varicose veins - they might be ugly, but they're harmless and should fade after delivery. Until then, avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time and make sure to get some exercise (it'll boost your circulation).

Baby's now the size of a squash!
Baby's energy is surging, thanks to white fat depositing beneath his skin. And since he's growing so fast (weight will triple by birth), things are getting kind of cramped in the womb. What all this means for you: Get ready for some more kicks and jabs to the ribs.

[ tip ] Gassy? Lose the carbonated drinks, stop sipping your soup and tea, ditch the straws and gum, and don't talk while chewing. This will cut down on the air you swallow...and probably make you a more pleasant dining partner too.

Audrey: Your Pregnancy: Week 35

With baby's head pressing squarely on your bladder, you're probably clocking some quality time in the bathroom. On a similar note, if you're finding it tough to poop, load up on the fiber. Whole grains, veggies, and dried fruits (but not all at once!) should loosen things up.

Baby's now the size of a honeydew!
From now on, baby's growth is mostly in the plumping up department - though he won't get much longer, he'll put on a pound or more of baby fat before birth. (He's about 15 percent right now and will be about 30 percent by full-term.) His hearing is totally developed (tip: baby responds best to higher pitches), and if he really is a "he," his testes have probably completed their descent.

[ tip ] For a cheap and reusable heating pad, fill a sock with uncooked rice and pop it in the microwave for a minute. Use to soothe your aching back... neck... ankles... pubic bone...

7 a.m.

Shell Cottage

"I'm hungwy!" Dominique exclaimed as she jumped on the bed of her sleeping parents, which was a fairly normal activity. "Hungwy!"

"Dom," Bill moaned sleepily. "Lay down and don't wake up your siblings." But as soon as the words left his mouth, Louis let out a high-pitched screech.

"Mummy! Daddy!" Louis shrieked from in his crib.

"Dominique Ginevra!" Bill gave her a stern look. "Do you have to wake Louis up every morning?" Dominique, being only 3, didn't quite understand what she'd done wrong, but she knew it was naughty to wake up Louis.

"It's not very nice to wake up, Louis." Fleur told her daughter and Bill left to get Louis out of his crib.

"I know." Dom said, still bouncing on the bed.

"Don't you zink zat Louis would be happy if you let him sleep?" Fleur asked her as she climbed out of bed and scooped Dom into her arms.

"No sweep!" Dom exclaimed from her mother's arms. "Food! I hungwy, Mummy!"

"I know, I know." Fleur kissed Dominique's cheek. "But let's let Victoire sleep a bit longer."

"Okay." Dom agreed and Fleur carried her down the stairs and into the kitchen. Fleur put Dom in her booster seat at the table.

"What do you want for breakfast, Dommie?" Fleur asked her daughter, but as she did, Bill came in carrying Louis in his arms.

"How about I make pancakes?" Bill suggested while putting Louis into his high chair.

"Cakes!" Louis exclaimed happily and he clapped his hands together.

"Yay!" Dom exclaimed in agreement.

"Should we wake Victoire?" Bill asked his wife.

"She can just eat when she wakes." Fleur answered. "No need to wake her."

"I agree." Bill said with a chuckle and with that he started on breakfast.

The Nest

Percy slowly awoke when he heard his magical alarm go off. He felt Audrey stir next to him, but found she still lay asleep. Hoping to keep it that way, he slowly got out of bed, and all but tiptoed over to the master bathroom to get ready for work.

The Fun House (George and Angelina's)

George and Angelina didn't need alarm clocks to get them up on time, for they had two, rambunctious toddlers.

This particular morning, they awoke to Roxanne whining and Fred's muffled voice.

"Whose turn?" Angelina asked as she lay in bed, eyes still closed.

"Yours." George sleepily replied, he too lay still.

"Nuh-uh. I did it yesterday." Angelina said back.

"Fine, I'll get up." George moaned as he climbed out of bed and slowly padded across the room. He heard the voices coming from Roxanne's room, and made his way that way.

When George got to the doorway, he heard voices inside, and stopped to listen to what was going on inside.

"Fweddie," Roxanne moaned. "Mummy!"

"No Mummy." Fred said sternly. "Come 'ere, Roxie."

George peeked in to see Fred trying to get Roxanne out of her crib. It didn't seem to be going very far, and you could tell Roxanne wanted her parents.

"No, Fweddie!" Roxanne exclaimed. "I want Mummy!"

"No!" Fred exclaimed, and he sounded genuinely upset. "No Mummy!"

"How about Daddy?" George asked as he came walking into the room, not wanting to make Roxanne suffer any longer.

"Daddy!" Roxanne exclaimed, and she held her arms out to him. He walked over, and grabbed Roxanne out of her crib.

"Morning, love." George kissed Roxanne's cheek, and ruffled Fred's hair. "Who's ready for breakfast?"

"Me!" Both children exclaimed together.

"Okay, let's go downstairs." George carried Roxanne and Fred followed close behind. "What should we have?" George asked as he placed Roxanne in her high chair, and lifted Fred up to his.

"Bacon!" Fred exclaimed. "I wove bacon!" Roxanne nodded her head in agreement, and George laughed.

"You can't have just bacon for breakfast. How about eggs too?"

"Otay!" Fred exclaimed, and Roxanne agreed.

Potter Manor

When James heard the chirping of birds, coming from outside his bedroom window, he immediately woke up. He lay in bed, still half asleep, and staring at the walls of his bedroom. He wasn't in the nursery anymore; he had his own room, with his own murals. On two of the four walls, it had the same forest scene as in Teddy's room, changing seasons and all, and with the three most important Marauders, including James' too namesakes. Sometimes Moony wouldn't be around, but Prongs and Padfoot were always present on James' walls. On the other two walls were a full Quidditch game going, Gryffindor and Slytherin. The Gryffindor players were his mother, father and Uncle Ron. The others were their team members of his father's sixth year.

After a while of just laying there, little 3-year-old James couldn't lay still any longer. He climbed out of bed, and went over to the doorway that lead to his secret passage way. Harry and Ginny hadn't wanted James to know of the secret passage way that a previous James had created, but little James Sirius had found it himself. The passage way went from his bedroom, and over to his big brother, Teddy's, bedroom.

James quickly went through the passageway, and came bounding over to Teddy's bed.

"Wake up, Teddy!" James exclaimed, and he climbed onto his bed and jumped up and down. "Wake up!"

"James," Teddy groaned. "Stop jumping, you're making me sick."

"Let's pway!" James exclaimed. "No more sweep!"

"Go wake up Uncle Harry and Aunt Ginny." Teddy told James.

"Why…" James whined. "I not want to!"

"Because they can make breakfast." Teddy told his little brother. "Hurry, James!"

"Weally?" James asked.

"Yes, really! Hurry, James!" Teddy exclaimed, and with that, James got up and rushed into his parent's bedroom.

"Mummy!" James exclaimed as he climbed onto the bed and poked her. "Daddy!" He then poked his dad. "Wake up!"

"Is it already time to get up?" Harry moaned as he rolled over and pulled James down to the bed, and held him close.

"No!" James exclaimed as he struggled in his father's strong grip. "No more sweep!"

"Would you please take him downstairs?" Ginny asked Harry, her eyes still shut. "I'll be down soon."

"Sure, hon." Harry agreed, it was his turn to make breakfast anyway. He let James go, and rolled over to see the time. It was 7, and he didn't have to be into the Ministry until 8:30, he had plenty of time.

"Daddy, come on!" James exclaimed, and he grabbed Harry's hand to try and pull him along.

"Okay, I'm coming, Jamesie." Harry told him. "How about you go get Teddy and tell him it's time for breakfast."

"Okay!" James exclaimed, and he ran off to get Teddy. Harry grabbed his robe, and followed his son's lead, although he went down the stairs, instead of into Teddy's room.

Harry decided to make a small breakfast this morning, of only oatmeal and a bowl of strawberries and raspberries.

By time James and Teddy came running down the stairs, both fully dressed, with Ginny trailing behind them. She too was dressed.

"Big day today?" Harry asked when his family sat down to breakfast.

"I have to run a few errands later, but no not really. Though Fleur did say something about having Teddy and James over today. We'll see." Ginny told Harry.

"That'd be fun, boys." Harry smiled as he fed James a bit of oatmeal, for the first bite had just spilled down his front.

"And there goes that shirt," Ginny sighed as she pulled out her wand. "I don't know what we'd do without magic." Harry chuckled.

"We'd have lots of laundry to do." Harry said.

"Because we already don't have enough." Ginny chuckled.

"Too true." Harry agreed and he fed yet another bit to his little son.

7:30am

The Nest

"Love you." Percy whispered to his slumbering wife.

"Hmmmm…." Audrey murmured in her sleep. Percy didn't want to wake her, but know she'd be upset if he didn't say goodbye.

"I'll see you after work." Percy whispered again.

"Are you leaving?" Audrey asked sleepily.

"Yeah, I gotta go." Percy told her.

"Baby says she loves you." Audrey murmured, as her hand went down to rest on her stomach.

"Can you feel her?" Percy asked excitedly, and he crouched down to face her baby bump.

"Yeah, she's kicking." Audrey told him. "She's excited to hear you, Daddy."

"Hi sweetie." Percy cooed. "Daddy loves you very much."

"I can feel her kicking, Perce!" Audrey told him excitedly. She grabbed Percy's hand and placed it where she felt the kicks. Percy's face lit up when he felt her.

""She's getting so big." Percy murmured.

Yes she is." Audrey agreed. "Soon enough she'll get to be here with her family."

"I can't wait." Percy kissed Audrey's covered belly. "I better get going." Percy then said. "I'll be back around six."

"Okay." Audrey kissed Percy's hand. "Have a good day, I love you."

"I love you, too." Percy reached over and kissed Audrey, before standing up. "Give Molly my love."

"I will." Audrey promised, and with that, Percy left the room and went on his way.

Ron and Hermione's

"Ron, get up." Hermione nudged the form of her still sleeping husband. "Ron." She nudged him again when he didn't stir. "Ronald Weasley!" Hermione finally exclaimed.

"What?" Ron was shocked awake and he quickly sat up in bed, looking all over the place for something the matter, before his eyes landed on Hermione.

"Hermione, what's wrong?" Ron asked in sleepy concern.

"Well you wouldn't wake up." Hermione told him sadly, tears welling in her eyes. "What if it was an emergency? What if I was having our baby?"

"I'm sorry, Hermione." Ron gathered the teary Hermione into his arms and held her tightly. "It's okay." He murmured to her.

After a few minutes, Hermione's tears dried and she took a deep breath.

"Sorry 'bout that." She murmured. "I didn't sleep much last night."

"I'm sorry." Ron murmured, Hermione still in his arms. "I love you."

"I love you, too." Hermione snuggled up to Ron.

"Maybe you should call in sick." Ron suggested after a few moments.

"Why?" Hermione asked, lifting her head from Ron's embrace. "You think I can't handle it?"

"Hermione, calm down." Ron murmured to her. "That's not what I said. You just said that you didn't sleep well last night, and when I don't sleep well, I usually call in sick so I can rest."

"Oh," Hermione nodded her head. "Well I guess that might be a good idea."

"Okay, I can go floo your department and let them know, and then I'll start breakfast." Ron told her.

"Okay, sounds good." Hermione agreed, and Ron slipped out of bed, while Hermione just lay back down, hoping to get a bit more sleep.

8 am

Shell Cottage

"Dominique!" Fleur exclaimed in frustration. "Why did you do zat?" Fleur was trying to clean up the kitchen from breakfast, now that all three of her children had eaten. But, Dominique had decided she wanted a glass of milk, and completely dumped all of the milk all over the kitchen floor.

"I sorry, Mummy." Dominique said sincerely, with a look of regret in her eyes. "I sirsty."

"You need to ask for 'elp." Fleur told her daughter, feeling sympathetic for her sorrowful daughter. "You are too little to do it yourself."

"Otay." Dom nodded her head.

"'Ow about you go see if Dad needs any 'elp getting ready for work." Fleur suggested to her daughter, and Dom nodded before running away. Fleur sighed, and pulled out her wand, not knowing what she would have down in this situation without magic.

Upstairs, Dom came bounding into her parents room, where Victoire and Louis were lying on the bed chatting, or as much as they could with Louis' small vocabulary.

"Hi guys." Dom greeted her sibling as she climbed onto the big bed with them. "Wets bounce!" She exclaimed and she began to bounce on the bed up and down.

"Yay!" Louis exclaimed and he too got up to bounce on his parent's bed.

"You two are gonna fall off and get hurt." Victoire told them seriously.

"Nuh-uh!" Dominique exclaimed, and she bounced a little higher.

"Dominique!" Victoire exclaimed. "Mummy and Daddy are gonna yell at you."

"Nuh-uh!" Dominique exclaimed again.

"Uh-huh!" Victoire shot back.

"Nuh-uh!"

"Uh-huh!"

"Nuh-uh!"

"Yay!" Louis exclaimed, cutting through the girl's argument. "Bouncy!" And as he did, Bill came walking into the bedroom from inside the master bathroom.

"What's going on in here?" Bill asked when he saw his three children.

"Bouncy!" Louis exclaimed, but Dominique just stopped her bouncing, and quickly sat down on the bed.

"Hi Daddy." Dom greeted him innocently. Dom was smart for a three year old, when it came to her parents. The one look she saw on either of her parent's faces always meant she was in deep trouble.

"We bouncy, Daddy!" Louis exclaimed.

"You know that there is no bouncing on the bed." Bill said sternly.

"I told dem, Daddy." Victoire said proudly. "Dey don't wisten to me."

"Dom, you know that that's naughty." Bill told her. "You're not supposed to do that."

"I sorry." Dominique told Bill sincerely.

"Okay, but I'm gonna have to tell Mummy. Maybe James won't be able to come over today." Bill told her.

"No!" Dom exclaimed. "I wanna pway wif James!"

"Then you have to be a good girl for the rest of the day." Bill told her.

"Otay." Dom nodded her head.

"Well I gotta go to work." Bill told them, and instantly all three kids went running to their dad. They all hugged him tightly, and Bill kissed each. He then left the room, and went down stairs to leave.

After Bill left, the three children raced down to the kitchen where Fleur was washing dishes.

"Can Jamesie come pway?" Dom asked her mother as she bounced on her feet.

"And Teddy!" Victoire added.

"A cousins!" Louis exclaimed excitedly.

"Okay," Fleur agreed, but quickly added. "But you need to be good before zey get 'ere. No more fighting."

"Okay." All three kids nodded their heads.

The Fun House

"I gotta go!" George exclaimed; again. "Lee's waiting for me down in Hogsmeade."

"Well then just leave." Angelina told him in frustration. "I'll handle it all."

"I want to help, but I really gotta go!" George told her.

"Fine, go!" Angelina sighed. "Maybe I'll come by later."

"Okay. I love you." George kissed Angelina.

"I love you. Say goodbye to the kids."

George quickly bid his kids goodbye, before rushing through the floo and down to the Hogsmeade store of Weasley Wizard Wheezes.

"What should we do today?" Angelina asked her kids as they sat in the family room.

"Cousins!" Fred exclaimed. "Jamesie and Dommie!"

"Well, how about we go get them after we run some errands. I have to get a few things for Daddy." Angelina told the kids.

"Okay." The two little kids agreed, and before long, they were out the door.

Ron and Hermione

"Bye, love." Ron kissed Hermione's temple. "If you need anything, even if it's little, floo me." Ron told her seriously.

"Okay." Hermione nodded.

"Promise you will?" Ron asked.

"Yes, I promise." Hermione smiled. "Have a good day at work. I love you."

"I love you, too." Ron kissed her, before he left the bedroom and floo'd away. Hermione just sighed, lay back down, and almost immediately fell to sleep.

Potter Manor

"Bye, Daddy." James hugged Harry tightly. "I wove you."
"I love you, too, Jamesie." Harry gave James a sweet kiss. "I'll see you after work, okay?"

"Otay." James nodded.

"Have fun today and be good." Harry told James.

"Otay, Daddy."

"Good boy." Harry ruffled James' hair, kissed his forehead, and then set him back on the ground. Harry then hugged Teddy.

"Love you, Teddy. Be good." Harry told his godson.

"I will." Teddy agreed. "I love you, too."

When Harry and Teddy finished their hug, Harry wrapped Ginny in a hug and kissed her.

"I love you." He whispered in her ear.

"I love you, too. Honey." Ginny whispered back.

"See you tonight."

"Okay, I love you." Ginny kissed him before slightly pushing him away. "Don't want to be late." Ginny giggled.

"You're right." Harry walked over to the floo. "Bye!" He called before flooing away.

8:15 am

Shell Cottage & Potter Manor

"Okay, I'm going to floo Teddy and James now." Fleur told her kids.

"Yay!" All three exclaimed happily.

"You need to be quiet when I floo call Ginny." Fleur told them as she walked into the living room, and they all followed along.

"Okay." They all agreed.

Fleur grabbed a pinch of floo powder, and threw it into the fireplace. She stuck her head in and called for Potter Manor.

"Ginny!" Fleur called when she saw the many other fireplaces, indicating she was at Potter Manor. "Ginny!"

Within a few minutes, Ginny came jogging in.

"Fleur!" Ginny exclaimed happily. "How are you?"

"Good. And you?"

"Same here." Ginny smiled. "So what's up?"

"Well I would love to take your kids for ze afternoon. I zink zat zey would all love zat." Fleur told Ginny.

"Oh that would be so fun. I know they all would enjoy it." Ginny agreed.

"Well zen just send zem over when you are ready. And you can come get zem later whenever you want." Fleur told Ginny.

"Well thank you." Ginny smiled. "I'll send them both over shortly."

"Okay." Fleur nodded. "See you soon."

"Okay, bye."

Ginny then quickly got the boys ready, packed a small bag, and then they went into the coming and going room.

"Now, be very good." Ginny told both boys sternly. "Be good for Auntie Fleur, okay?"

"Okay." Both boys agreed.

"Have fun." Ginny kissed both boys and then Teddy took James' hand and they floo'd to Shell Cottage together.

9 am

Shell Cottage

Things at Shell Cottage were running fairly smoothly. All five kids were getting alone greatly. Teddy and Victoire were playing house with Louis, and James and Dom were playing with some of Dom's joke toys in her room. Fleur was able to get a few things done while the kids played happily.

"Baby Louis needs to go to da healers." Victoire told Teddy in her 'Mummy' voice.

"What's wrong with him?" Teddy asked skeptically.

"He got a boo-boo." Victoire said sadly, still talking in her special voice.

"Okay, let's take him to the healers." Teddy agreed, and he led Victoire and Louis out of Vic's room and down the hall, and straight into Dom's room.

"Go away." Dom said to them as soon as they entered the room.

"This is the healers." Victoire told Dom. "We're pwaying house."

"I be da healer!" James exclaimed excitedly, and he jumped up to his feet, Dom following his lead.

"Me too!" Dom exclaimed.

"Okay, you guys can be the healers." Victoire agreed.

"What wrong?" James asked, as he looked around Dom's room for something to use as a fake wand. He saw a stick laying in the corner of Dom's room and ran over to it. He picked it up, and came back over to his cousins.

"Baby Louis has a boo-boo." Victoire told James matter-of-factly.

"Where da boo-boo?" James asked, and Dom grabbed a pencil to be her fake wand.

"It's on baby Louis' arm." Victoire answered again, and Dom tapped Louis' arm with her 'wand'.

"All better!" Dom exclaimed happily.

"I think he needs a lollipop." Teddy told James and Dom.

"Mummy has some downstairs." Victoire said. "Wet's go get some."

"Okay." They all agreed, and then they raced down stairs.

Fleur was currently in the living room, reading the newest issue of Witch Weekly. So, knowing how it was done at this house, they easily snuck into the kitchen, and they looked up at the cupboard where the lollipops were.

"How we gonna get 'em?" Dom asked her big sister. "Too big!"

"Teddy, can you reach?" Victoire asked, and Teddy shook his head.

"I can lift you up!" Teddy exclaimed to Vic. "And then you can grab them." Victoire's face istantly took a look of fear to it.

"No…" Victoire's voice was wavering.

"Pwease Vicky!" Dominique exclaimed.

"Pwease, Vicky!" James then added.

"Okay." Victoire sighed, and everyone cheered.

Teddy carefully lifted Victoire up, at the best of his ability.

"I'm swipping!" Victoire exclaimed in fear. "I gonna fall!"

"It's okay." Teddy assured her. "You're almost on the counter." Teddy lifted her just a little bit more, before she could climb up onto the countertop.

"I did it!" Victoire exclaimed happily and she did a little victory dance, before almost slipping. After her near falling, she quickly steadied herself, and reached up to the cupboard with the lollipops inside. She then grabbed the glass case and grabbed out five, before putting the case back in, and shutting the cupboard. "Help me down, Teddy!" Victoire then exclaimed, a look of fear again gracing her face.

"I will." Teddy assured her, and he did. Teddy easily got her down, before everyone swarmed her.

"Let's go upstairs first." Teddy suggested, and they all rushed up the stairs.

"I want cherry!" Dominique exclaimed.

"I don't know if I grabbed that kind." Victoire told her little sister. "I have watermelon, orange, grape, blueberry and melon."

"Eww!" Dom exclaimed. "I want cherry!"

"But I didn't get a cherry!" Vic told her. "Pick something else."

"No! Cherry!" Dom exclaimed, her face scrunched up in anger. "I don't wike dos one's!"

"I want melon." Teddy told Victoire and he took that one out of her grips.

"A bwue!" Louis exclaimed excitedly, a bit of jump to his waddle.

"Okay, baby Louis." Victoire kissed Louis' head, before handing him the blueberry lollipop.

"You can have grape, watermelon or orange." Victoire told Dom. "Pick one."

"I want orange!" James exclaimed, and he too snatched it out of Victoire's grip.

"Gwape." Dom told Victoire and she took that one.

"Yay!" Victoire exclaimed happily. "I get watermelon!"

The Nest

"Mummy!" Molly exclaimed as she prodded the deep sleeping Audrey. "Mummy!"

"Huh…" Audrey sleepily mumbled, and she stretched out her muscles.

"Mummy!" Molly exclaimed again.

"Good morning, Molly." Audrey mumbled sleepily. "Did you sleep good?"

"Yeah." Molly said. Although, Audrey never knew if she really meant 'yes'. 'Yes' had become young Molly's new favorite word. She said it to absolutely every question Percy and Audrey ever asked her.

"Do you want some breakfast, my love?" Audrey asked, knowing what Molly's answer would be.

"Yeah." Molly answered, as Audrey had known, and she bounced a little on the bed.

"Okay, let's go get something to eat." Audrey told her daughter, before rolling out of bed and slipping on her robe and slippers. "We'll have breakfast and then we can get dressed for the day." Audrey told Molly.

"Yeah." Molly said and she giggled when Audrey kissed her head.

"How about pancakes and eggs?" Audrey asked Molly, though wondering why she even asked.

"Yeah." Audrey chuckled, before picking Molly up and carrying her downstairs. Audrey easily made the breakfast, before she and her daughter sat down to eat.

9:30 am

Shell Cottage & The Fun House

The kids at Shell Cottage were still quite happy. Fleur was very pleased that all five of them were playing together, and hadn't started fighting; yet. She knew they would, they always did, but for now she was happy with them just being kids together.

As Fleur sat on her couch thinking, and reading Witch Weekly, she heard someone floo in, and she looked up, wondering who would be flooing in.

"Angelina!" Fleur exclaimed happily and she stood up to hug her sister-in-law.

"Hey, Fleur." Angelina smiled.

"'ello Roxie and Fred." Fleur smiled at her niece and nephew. "It is good to see you all."

"Yes.' Angelina agreed. "I just came over to see if Dom wanted to come play. I already floo'd Ginny and she said that Teddy and James were here. I was thinking that I could take James and Dom, and take some of the children out of your hair."

"Oh, I'm sure zat zey would love to come over." Fleur agreed with Angelina. "Zey always do. And you could leave Roxanne 'ere to play with Louis."

"Oh, if you'd like." Angelina turned to her daughter. "Do you wanna play with Louis today?" She asked Roxanne, who's face instantly lit up at the sound of her cousin's name.

"Uh-huh." Roxanne nodded her head.

"If you're sure, Fleur, I think that Roxanne would enjoy that."

"It is no problem at all." Fleur assured Angelina. "Plus, you are taking ze harder zree." Fleur said and both she and Angelina laughed.

"That is true." Angelina agreed. "Maybe we'll go down to Hogsmeade and visit the shop."

"Now zere is an idea." Fleur smiled. "I zink zat zat will be fun." Fleur said. "Let me just go get zem."

Fleur then went upstairs, and Angelina heard talking, before Dom and James came rushing down the stairs.

"Fred!" They both exclaimed, and all three children wrapped up in a hug.

"Ze kids are excited." Fleur told Angelina and they both laughed.

Fleur gave Dom instructions, and Angelina bid Roxanne goodbye, before Angelina floo'd away with Fred, Dom and James.

10 am

Shell Cottage

Half an hour later, things were going quite well. Teddy and Victoire were happily playing as were Louis and Roxanne. A daily activity that was non-too out of the ordinary, and nothing too special.

The Nest

"Let's get you into some pretty clothes." Audrey told Molly as she held her hand and they walked back upstairs, and into Molly's bedroom.

"Dwessie." Molly told her mother, and Audrey nodded.

"A dress sounds lovely, darling." Audrey agreed. "How about a purple dress?"

"Yeah." Molly agreed, as always, and Audrey reached into Molly's closet and pulled out a little puffy, purple dress.

"Yes, very lovely." Audrey commented to herself. "Let's wash up." Audrey took Molly into the bathroom, and took her pajamas off of her. She then changed her diaper, and washed Molly's face, and brushed her teeth. "We'll get you dressed and then we'll do your hair." Audrey told her.

They went back into Molly's bedroom and Audrey put the dress on Molly.

"Gorgeous!" Audrey exclaimed and Molly giggled. "So pretty, like a princess."

Audrey then lead Molly into the bathroom again, and sat her up on the counter top. Audrey grabbed the brush and easily brushed through Molly's fiery red tendrils. She then pulled some of it back into a little butterfly clip.

"All ready." Audrey told Molly and she kissed her temple. "And you look so gorgeous."

"Dorgeous!" Molly exclaimed and she and her mother laughed.

The Fun House

The little trio, Dom, Fred and James, were being as rambunctious as ever. Angelina really didn't mind it, since she was used to her energy ball, Fred. The only difference between Fred and the trio, was even more energy.

"Calm down!" Angelina exclaimed, and all of sudden the house went quiet; though Angelina knew enough to know that they were only quiet to try and avoid any possible trouble they could get into. "Keep being good and maybe we can go out to lunch." This comment, Angelina knew, would make the kids have a motive to be good, and she knew it'd work; it always did.

"Otay!" Angelina heard three little voice call back to her and she smiled, she may have just made the day a bit easier.

Potter Manor

"I have a lot to get done today." Ginny murmured to herself. With her boys out of the house, she knew that this was the best time to get things down. She had told the house elves earlier that they had the day off so that she could work on the house herself. As the boys got older, she needed the house elves less and less. They were becoming more like friends, or neighbors, then little servants to boss around.

"I can't forget anything." Ginny told herself again, and with that thought in mind, she went over and grabbed a pad of paper and a quill. She thought over everything she needed to do, before writing it down.

Things To Do

clean the kitchen, clean most of the bathrooms, tidy James' room, tidy me and Harry's room, tidy Teddy's room, tidy the play room, check my plants, clean out the fireplaces in the coming and going room, tidy game room, organize papers in my office and in the kitchen,

Ginny looked over the list a few more times, before deciding that that looked good enough. She thought that it had everything on it, and if not, she could always add more later.

"Now, I need to get started." Ginny sighed, before grabbing her wand and a pair of gloves.

11 am

The Nest

"How about we go play with your toys." Audrey suggested to her bored looking daughter. "I'll play with you."

"Yay!" Molly exclaimed excitedly. Molly grabbed Audrey's hand and dragged her up to her bedroom.

"Should we play with your dolls?" Audrey asked as she sat down on Molly's bed, unable to sit on the ground with her big pregnant belly.

"Uh-huh." Molly agreed, and she picked out a doll for Audrey to play with, and one for her.

As Audrey moved her doll around, she heard Molly mutter sweet words of nothingness, pure gibberish, in what she thought was her dolls voice.

"Very good, Molly." Audrey murmured. "Is your dollie talking?"

"Yeah." Molly answered. "Talk, talk, talk!" Audrey giggled.

"You smart girl." Audrey praised. "Is she happy?"

"Uh-huh."

"Is she pretty?"

"Yeah."

"Is she nice?"

"Yeah." Audrey smiled at her daughter's sweet innocence.

"Well that's good." Audrey smiled at Molly. "She sounds like a very good dollie."

Ron and Hermione

Hermione had been sleeping for hours when she finally came back to reality. She stretched and looked over at her clock. Her heart skipped a beat when she saw the late time, before calming back down when she realized why she was at home.

As Hermione lay in bed contemplating, she heard her stomach growl.

"That's not good." Hermione murmured as she climbed out of bed, left her bedroom, and went to the kitchen. "Baby girl needs food." Hermione was very protective, and did everything exactly as the healer and baby books told her too.

Hermione made a simple breakfast of toast and scrambled eggs. She didn't feel like making a big, fancy breakfast at the moment. She was tired, a tad bit grumpy, and she felt very lonely.

As Hermione sat at the kitchen table, eating breakfast alone, she decided to grab the Daily Prophet. As soon as she had her hands on it, she was immediately engrossed in the wizarding world latest news.

"Ugh, why did I ever decide to do this manually?" Ginny grumbled to herself as she scrubbed at the dirty kitchen floor. "Come on, dirt, go away." But, the more Ginny scrubbed, the more she got frustrated. Within no time at all, Ginny couldn't take it anymore. She screamed and dropped the sponge moodily.

"This is nuts." She said. "Where's my wand?" As Ginny got up, she saw her wand resting on the counter top of the island, and she grabbed it. With on easy flick, the kitchen floor was very clean, almost cheesily sparkling.

"Perfect." Ginny commented, before leaving all the cleaning supplies on the kitchen floor, taking only her wand, and strolling down the hall to the downstairs bathroom.
