Jean took out two candy bars for her kids before she loaded the bags in the trunk of her metallic blue Volvo. She sighed when she saw her reflection against the shop window; her strawberry blonde hair looked wild. She had to cancel her hairdresser’s appointment to pick up the boys because Rick’s business meeting time changed at the last minute.
“Mooom! Could you tell Sawyer to quit bugging me”
“He started it; Connor is such a cry baby!”
Jean tossed them the Hershey bars and hoped that it would keep them quiet as she drove home.
“Mine is bigger that yours.” Sawyer taunted Connor
“Sawyer! You know full well that they are exactly the same size, why do you enjoy upsetting him.”
Sawyer looked smug. Through her mirror, she saw Connor stuck his tongue out at Sawyer. She made a mental note to have a talk with them when she got home. Sawyer’s sandy blonde head tilted as he inspected the package of the chocolate whilst Connor already had his mouth full with some of his.
As she pulled up into the drive, she got an idea.
“Guys, I would like you help me bring the bags into the house.”
“Oh man! Mom the Simpsons have already started; let Connor do it”
“That’s not fair he’s older he should do it, besides those bags are heavy for us to carry.” Connor asserted
“Yeah” Sawyer concurred.
At least they agree about something Jean mused as she brought the car to a halt and released the child lock.
“Oh well I will just wait till you daddy comes home, he really is the greatest man I have met.”
“I want to be like daddy.” Connor murmured
“I am like daddy.” Sawyer added with conviction.
“Do you know why your dad is so great?” she turned around to questioning emerald eyes.
“He is willing to help, we work as a team it’s not about who is bigger or who is faster. True greatness is about who is willing to serve the most.”
“Bet I could get to the bags faster than you Connor”
They both opened the door and ran to the back.
“Lord help me!” Jean sighed.
