Ace: Week Eight, Day Four

WEEK EIGHT
DAY FOUR
Awesome-ness: Ace taught Chase to talk!

Ace had been spending all the time he could spare trying to teach Chase to talk.  Geez, being a parent was hard work!  But, it had finally paid off!  Chase could talk now!

Now Ace just had to teach Devon, too!

Sighing, he got up and left the boys to play as he went to take a quick nap!

"Ace?" Bethany asked.  "Hey, Ace?"  Walking over she poked him in the shoulder. 

Ace sat up and looked around the room blearily.  "What is it, squirt?"

"Aren't you supposed to be going to work soon?"

Ace hopped up and looked at his watch.  "Shoot," he grumbled.  Hurriedly he got a bottle for Chase and Devon. 

"Holly, you're good to watch them, right?" he called across the room.

"Of course, Ace.  We'll see you when you get home."

Ace sighed.  It was weird getting used to their later hours!

Bethany plopped down and turned cartoons on and zoned out for awhile.  The boys were just as fascinated by the tv as she was.

And then, the unthinkable happened. 

Bethany jumped up.  "DAAAAAD!  The tv broke!"

Jesse came in the room and grinned.  "You finally did it, you watched too much tv."

"Daaaaaaaad," Bethany complained.  "Can you fix it?"

Holly joined the family.  "Why don't you work on your homework while your father sees if he cane fix it," she suggested.  "I want to see your homework finished before you even think about turning the tv back on!"

Holly headed upstairs with the boys to put them to bed.

Bethany made faces behind her mom's back.  Think, think, think, she thought rebelliously.  Thinking about watching tv before my homework's done!  Pouting, she plopped down at the kitchen table and started doing her homework.
