Sandy returned to her normal state of sanity soon after she and Brandon discovered she was with child. She'd often stand in a corner idly while massaging her stomach, or she'd spend time with Anya. Anya was the closest contact to her since she's right next door, but she still keeps in touch with her sweatpants brigade via phone.
Meanwhile, Brandon drove himself crazy with things like housework when he wasn't busy working to make sure that Sandy got enough rest. That wouldn't be so hard if it weren't for the fact that Kyle cries every five seconds and appliances keep breaking left and right. No wonder she almost lost it!
Anya's belly has begun to show signs of pregnancy, and the roundness of her belly was emphasized by her brand-new jumpsuit.
"Aww, I still can't believe you're pregnant. Where did you get that jumpsuit? It's darling!"
"Thanks! I got it from all about style, that little boutique down the street. Somehow the hubby missed it." she grinned. "And you, you look marvelous! Let me guess, you guys were successful?"
"Yep, I'll be due six days from now." she beamed. "And Kyle is growing up so quickly, he'll be having a birthday in less than a day. I still can't believe it! I feel so old..."
"Psh, imagine how I feel! I'm a few days away from 39 days and I'm just now having a baby. By the time our baby is a teenager, we'll have gray hairs." she joked.
The next day, Kyle's birthday party commenced. The guests all had a great time, and Angelina didn't crash this time. Thank Plumbbob for that, too. Sandy may be sane now, but there's no guaranteeing that pregnancy hormones won't make her lose it...especially in the presence of who she affectionately calls "that skank who tried to steal my husband".
Kyle turned out more like his mother than either one of them expected, and even though Brandon would never say it to her face, he even behaved just like his mother used to. Except even needier.
"DADAAAAAA!!!" Kyle screeched.
"Um...Sandy? A little help here?"
But hey, who can resist that face? It's impossible to scold him without looking into those large, sky blue eyes and feeling instant remorse. If he wanted to, Kyle could skate by very easily on his innocence.
And even at his extremely young age, he knew it.
