Scene: Desperate Kitchen. The Small One is looking especially adorable. The Housemommy, on impulse, scoops him up into a bear hug and plants mushy-gushy kisses all over his face.
DHousemommy says: “What are you always going to be? Tell me one more time so we don’t forget.”
DHousemommy says: “Even though you’re a big first grader now?”
The Small One says: “Yes, Mom.”
DHousemommy says: “Even when you’re sixteen and can drive a car?”
The Small One says: “Yes, Mama!”
DHousemommy says: “Even when you’re thirty and married to some lady and you have babies of your own?”
The Small One says: “Well…Idunno about that. I might skip the marrying part and just look into adoption.”
