McMillans (2) - Round 13
Elizabeth frowned. "Oh, Austin. I have to get to work. I don't have time to fool around with you this morning."
Austin sighed and got up out of bed, grumbling, "Well, back to the grind, I guess."
Elizabeth came in and tried to stop herself from giggling. Austin was pouting like a little 5 year old boy who had his candy taken away from him. Straightening up the bed, she said, "Well, the kids are asleep, the kitchen is clean, and I'm about to jump you. Are you good with that?"
Austin wasn't sure he heard her right! "What?"
Elizabeth laid in bed next to him and snuggled up against him. "You heard me..."
"Interception!" Clint cried and shook his hands. "Idiots!"
Austin cleared his throat and leaned over, "Don't let your Mom catch you saying that!" he advised.
Clint glanced around the room and sagely nodded.
Although... Elizabeth thought about how wonderful it would be to have a little girl with curly red hair. A little girl that didn't belch, fart or make other weird noises at the dinner table. Elizabeth rubbed her belly and smiled. Maybe it wouldn't be that bad after all.
Casey glanced back. "Yeah, that's Clint. You want me to introduce you to him? I bet he'd make a great date!"
Ellen rolled her eyes. "As if. I'm almost in college and you guys are way too young for me!"
Chelsea ducked her head. "I hope you don't think I'm easy," she told him.
Casey shook his head. "Not at all! I actually think you're really sweet. I really want you to be my girl."
Chelsea smiled. "I'd like that."
Casey's chest puffed out. "Let's go back to the party. Everyone's probably missing us." Besides, he wanted to tell Clint his good news!
Casey just sat there with a smile on his face.
Clint elbowed Casey. "Quit with that smiling. You act like she's the only fish in the sea! Don't settle for one until you're had a few!"
Conrad rolled his eyes. "Oh yeah, real sage advice."
Clint shrugged. "It's just my opinion!"
"Thanks, Mom!" they all called in unison and elbowed, pushed & tripped their way into the dining room.
Elizabeth watched the boys rough house all the way to the table and rubbed her belly. She hoped it was a little girl!
Elizabeth smiled wanely. "That's right!" Handing Kevin to Austin, she plead tiredness and ran off to bed for a little bit of a cry and a long nap.
