“Did you hear Jeremiah reading tonight?” Denise asked me.
I rolled over to face her. “Yea,” I answered, “That’s so cool. There’s no way I could do that when I was in kindergarten.”
“He’s a smart little boy, that’s for sure,” Denise replied as she fluffed her pillow.
“He counts to a hundred, too,” I said.
“He’s a smart little boy.”
“That’s for sure.”
I reached over to my nightstand and turned up my side of the electric blanket. “Do you have the window open, Hon?”
“It’s just cracked a bit, Babe. Why? Are you cold?”
“I’m okay. Timothy said a complete sentence today during dinner," I said.
“What did he say?”
“I want more.”
“Yea, that would be his first sentence, wouldn’t it?” I placed a hand on my wife’s hip. She gently scratched the tip of my nose.
“He’s a special little boy, too,” she whispered.
“They’ve got a special mommy,” I replied.
“And a special daddy.” She kissed the tip of my nose.
“I’m gonna sneeze if you keep doing that.”
Denise chuckled and pulled on my ear lobe. “Sorry.”
“No you’re not,” I retorted and kissed her gently on her lips.
“No, I’m not,” she said and kissed me back.
“Ooowf oowf,” came a noise from down stairs.
“You better go see what’s wrong with Bandit,” Denise said to me.
“He’ll be okay,” I said as I reached to embrace her.
“He’ll wake the baby,” she said, giving me a little push.
“Yea, yea,” I answered as I rolled out of bed, “stupid dog.”
