jwedson:

Yup, and Shaye and Gia get to go too. 

image

You too, right?

jwedson:

Well it’s to talk about you silly goose, and how you got a scholarship to attend an intensive with Miss Lexa and you and Lyla get to help her teach a bunch of kids. 

image

Really?

jwedson:

Oh really? Do you know why I’m having lunch with Miss Alexa on Friday?

image

Nope. We heard Aunt Gia coming.

jwedson:

image

Oh my….well um…

And I also know you’re having lunch with Miss Alexa on Friday.

jwedson:

For example?

image

I learned what’s in boys pants and Aunt Gia likes something rough but I don’t even know.

jwedson:

So you have? What have you heard, little Miss?

image

Lots.

jwedson:

Well then I guess that we’re both Daddy’s favorite things. 

image

Oh goodness, you shouldn’t do that G. Have you ever done that to Gia or Mommy?

I guess we are.

jwedson:

But Daddy stayed for you.

image

Shaye is just being a teenager, don’t listen to her unless it’s something you do understand. Happiness is always good baby. 

No. He stayed for both of us.
 I don’t really understand anything she says. Sometimes Lyla and I spy on her cause Lyla figured out if you pick up the other phone while somebody is on it then you can hear them and she talks a lot of weird stuff.

jwedson:

No way. Daddy treasures you a whole lot more. 

image

Well we have to fix that so Gene is all happy. 

But Daddy only came here because of you.
 Shaye says happiness is overrated. I don’t even know what that means.

jwedson:

He would have never left you, if they didn’t make him. But how Mommy has to go to the dance studio every day, this is Daddy’s job just like how Mommy’s job is to teach dance. But he wouldn’t leave you, if he didn’t have to. He loves you too much to do that, you’re his favorite thing.

Why is Gene only mostly happy?

Nuh-uh. You are.
 I dunno mommy.
