Off to grandfather's house we go... [Sep. 15th, 2009|08:43 pm]



 ::trails out of own quarters with a grumble, grabbing a handful of candy out of dish on entrance table before doors can shut...Naomi's romantic little touches are worth something, at least::

::shoves mints into mouth in a quick gulp when realization suddenly strikes, reaching up to steady flailing cargo::

::readjusts chubby little legs over shoulders, grabbing hands next::

Hey, K, try this.

If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands...

::after a few seconds of wrangling to free thumbs from
kelsie_wildman's clenched fists, flattens her hands out just enough to smack both palms together::

Like that, see? You're a natural.

K, K...if you're happy and you know it and you really want to show it...

::skips a line on padd when lift doors open, ruining peace and quiet::

::gives lieutenantkim a sideway look of blame...as if the off key clarinet playing wasn't bad enough::

::shoves padd into pants pocket with a sigh, stepping ahead of wincing husband into corridor::

Kelsie, slap him sensible.

::blinks when baby hands smack both cheeks, losing train of song::

Hey, ow!

::quickly grabs the rat around the waist, yanking her down into a safer...for self...full body hold::

::glares at new company::

How'd you teach her that? For that matter, who did you let her practice on?

::just shakes head at him, moving along to free granddaughter's arms, at least...he might need another slap::

::smiles at baby, almost indulging in a tickle::

::steps back fast::

I didn't think she would actually do it. I guess her human brain is moving faster than I thought.

...probably the Ocampan part.

Gee, thanks.

::pushes way around, plucking kelsie_wildman away from son::

::glares at him::

What did I tell you? No trying to walk and talk at the same time around her. It's too dangerous.

::crosses suddenly emptied arms::

Gee, thanks.

::falls back to walk with slightly more loving mother, rolling eyes at cooing and giggles ahead::

She was almost ready to go down for the night. Any idea what this is about?

::heaves a sigh...a long, deep one::

I'm really not his favorite confidant any longer, Andrew.

::flares brows at the petulance in that zinger::

Well, um...

::digs for reassurance, coming up with...nothing::

::ltcmdrtomparis has been scarce lately::

Seven is kinda distracting, but I'm sure he'll come around soon enough. His attention span, you know...

::glances up from padd shuffling when doors open, immediately taking stock::

::suppresses groan...can't he at least prescribe hormone suppressants or something?::

::kicks back chair, rising and trying for the Voice of Authority::

All right, all right, I don't know who started it, but everybody stop it!

And this is why we don't do family reunions...well, this and constant close proximity...damn tin can of a ship.

::sniffs, dropping fist and settling on a discreet toe stomp::

::breezes past them all, tipping head toward linnis_paris::

She started it, for future reference.

::lifts eyes::

Maybe I should have phrased that differently. I don't care who started it...

::does double take to linnis_paris, who has seated herself primly in a chair and is being oddly quiet and...baby friendly::


::waits for everyone else to sit, trying not to be too obvious in palm rubbing::

Sorry this is so late, but it's not exactly duty related and evening is the only time we can all seem to get together.

::shifts lap burden around, perking somewhat at the not duty related bit::

::eyes him::

Is everything okay? If the Doctor has been holding out on me, I swear...

Relax, Doc, everything is fine.

::tries...and fails...to suppress grin::

Better than fine, actually, hence the reason for this impromptu little meeting...I thought everyone should know since I can't breathe without at least one of you commentating...

I asked Seven to marry me.

Only about a month ago, but I guess for human girls...Borg girls...some decisions take time.

Oh, boy.

::looks to side, where mother sits in stony-faced silence::

::so much for that reassurance::

Just as well you weren't asking for opinions, I assume.

...was I supposed to?

I mean, if you want to pick out my socks, fine, but there are some things I'd prefer not to leave up to a community vote...

::follows grandson's pointed look::

::pinches bridge of nose::

I thought you liked Seven, sweetheart!

::clenches teeth, resisting the urge to kick andrewkim...he just can't be happy unless anyone else is in the hot seat::

::smoothes kelsie_wildman's fine hair, modulating tones to bland indifference::

I do like Seven. I'm just not really certain...
