Mercy knows that Remy is very resistant to the idea of a new sibling, especially a sister.  So, when she feels the baby kicking she invites him to feel it.

Mercy:  “Remy, sweetie.  Would you like to feel the baby kicking?”

Remy:  “Really?”

Mercy:  “You’ll be the first one, that makes you really special to her.”

Remy:  “I….I’m…first to feel the baby kick?  You said….her?”

Mercy:  “Um…..hmmm….I did.”

Remy:  “Oh wow!  MOM!  I felt her kick my hand.  I’m going to be the best big brother ever.  I’ll even play dolls with her and everything.”

Mercy auto-invited him to feel the baby, she must have known he needed the extra attention to be OK with getting a sibling.

Next door neighbors Gabriella and her son Kale stop by to visit and they all head outside to chat and watch the children play.

Remington:  “Who is this Isaiah I heard you two talking about?  Should I be concerned?”

Kale answers because the women are all talking to each other:  “Naw, he’s just some twerp from when we were all teens.  He was rude to Mercy and had a crazy crush on Luna.”

Remington:  “Ah, so he’s the one?”

Kale:  “I don’t know what you’re talking about, I didn’t really hang out with them much back then.”

Mercy to Gabriella:  “You should bring Kalani over some day, she’s the same age as our boys and they could play together.”

While the sisters chat and catch up, Remington bakes cookies for all the children (he’s so domesticated now….all for the love of a good woman).  

Luna:  “Did you hear that Isaiah is back in town?”

Mercy:  “No……”

Luna:  “Yeah, he’s married now and has two children.  He does something with finance.  I can’t remember.”

Mercy:  “Is he still a jerk?”

Luna laughs and shrugs:  “I don’t know.  I haven’t seen him or anything.  He was just 16 and people grow up, you know?”

After lunch, the boys invite their cousins Gabe and Faith along with their friends Mac and Lilly over to play in the backyard.

Remington kisses Mercy’s cheek and offers to watch all the children so she can hang out with her sister Luna Marie who was walking past.

The food arrives; pancakes and milk for the boys, french toast and orange juice for Mercy, and spinach/mushroom quiche with black coffee for Remington.

Rhys:  “I bet I can finish eating before you.”

Remy:  “You’re on!  Loser has to eat boogers.”

Mercy gagging slightly:  “Boys!”

Remington:  “Knock it off both of you, you’re making your mother sick and that makes me very unhappy.”

Boys:  “Sorry mom…..”
