Day 40 (Thursday)
Today the twins become teenagers!
Aimee still mourns for her smashed project while Ainsley works on extra credit.
Hopefully it will be a good day at school for both of them.
Marc is able to work from home today.
His assignment is an easy one to accomplish … once he buys a microscope.
Analyzing garners him a piece of artwork similar to one he has on display in the living room so he hangs this one above his desk.
Marc drops by for a chat and a few chess matches.
Ainsley texts her dad for permission to bring Damien over and he declines.
“He needs to learn some manners before he sets foot in this house again.”
Ainsley doesn’t like the answer she got. She leaves an angry note on the bulletin board before starting her homework.
Marc makes Spinach Frittata and then offers homework help.
A little later …
“Are you girls ready to make a wish and blow out birthday candles?”
Up first is Aimee.
Marc makes some joyful noise!
Happy Birthday, Aimee!
(A/N: Normally, I would leave their look alone but the green lipstick is a bit much so both girls will be getting changes to their makeup, outfits and possibly hair.)
Ainsley is next.
Happy Birthday, Ainsley!
Ainsley challenges her dad to a chess match partly so they won’t have to listen to Aimee bemoan her busted project yet again.
Minutes later, she’s taking selfies and eating cake. That’s teens for you!
Marc gets a call about a blind date and politely passes on the offer.
He’s spending time with his two best girls before they head off to do their own thing.
Ainsley enjoys working on projects and is sure to finish this one before Aimee starts hers.
Marc is glad both girls are doing their homework without any influence on his part.
Homework takes longer with one girl telling dramatic stories and the other not feeling her best.
Marc paints a mathematical design and hangs it near the chess table. Hopefully, it will help him focus better.
It’s getting late so we’ll stop here and pick it back up again later.
Marc bought a microscope (work expenses!) and birthday presents for the girls (will be seen in upcoming chapters!). He also paid for art supplies and birthday cake.
