Carters (3) - Round 13
"Good to be back."
"So tell me all about college!" Sean said as they walked in and sat down.
"Well, I graduated Summa Cum Laude and I'm getting married..."
Sean sat down in shock. "Well, well... Wait until your Mother hears!"
Brett kissed the top of her head. "A little boy that's rough & tumble like I was and a little girl with a cut little bow in her hair like you."
Erika smiled. "A little boy! I don't think I'd know what to do with him! I grew up in a house full of women!"
Brett laughed, "You'll be a wonderful mother anyways!"
Erika laughed. "You're going to be such a great Dad!"
Brett smiled. "Yeah, I had a pretty good example!"
Erika glanced over her shoulder, "Are they making out in our room again?"
Brett looked over and saw his parents locked in a romantic embrace and smiled. "They're like teenagers still! I hope when we're their age that we're the same way!"
"Really?" she'd demanded. "What is a toddler going to do with a pony?"
Brett had been a little embarrassed for going over the top, but he still tried to defend himself, "Even toddlers can ride a pony. We'd hold her."
"You're ridiculous!" Erika laughed. "Will you run to the store & bring home the cake?"
He was happy with their romantic dates, their personal time, but also with the kids. He was glad Brett seemed to learn that early on, as well. He'd been worried that Brett might follow in his footsteps and try to form meaningless attachments, but it seemed Brett had a good shoulder on his heads. He'd chosen love. And you couldn't get better than that...
