It happened upon a recent Sunday afternoon that Kerry and I came upon a rare, fortuitous moment that allowed for a little romantic tryst. (Anyone with kids knows, Ya gotta take 'em when you can!)
With the kids completely enthralled in a movie, we headed into the bedroom, made sure the door was locked, and yada yada yada.....
Moving into the yadas, we heard a frantic pounding on our door. It was the precocious little 4 year old, Becks. "Mom!" (knock knock knock) "Mom!" (knock knock knock, knock knock knock)
Not knowing if we should play dead and see if he would scamper away or to try to appease him with the tried and true "we'll be out in just a minute, sweety, go watch your show" response, Kerry decided to oblige the persistent toddler.
Kerry: ( yelling loud enough for him to hear out into the hall) "What do you need Becks?"
Becks: "Not you, Dad. I need Mom!"
Me: (yelling loud enough for him to hear out in the hall) "What do you need, Buddy?"
Becks: "Come out here. I need to show you something."
Me: "Okay Becks. I'll come see it in just a minute. Go watch your movie."
Becks: (frustrated and yelling so we can hear him) "MOM! You need to get this. It's an upside down tomato plant grower. You need to get it. It's on the T.V. right now. It grows tomatoes. You put the tomatoes in and then add garden soil and it just grows upside down. You Need To Get It!"
Sure thing there, Becks!
