Shawn (45), Jane (30), Imogene (2), Shane (2)
Life in the D'Sim household had changed dramatically since the birth of the twins, but Shawn and Jane were beginning to get used to the new routine. At times it seemed like there was a lot to juggle at once. Things didn't get done as quickly or easily as they used to, but somehow they managed to take one task at a time.
Somehow Shawn even managed to make time for other passion, stargazing. On the nights when he wasn't utterly exhausted and the babies weren't demanding his attention, he would take a few moments to look through the telescope and continue his research on the stars and planets. He was always working on theories, and his biggest dream was to discover life on another planet some day. He knew it was unlikely, but he still dreamed.
Before long, the blur of infant days were over and the twins were celebrating their first birthday.
