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...

I don't want him to come around, if he's happy.

...I'd just like to be let in on some things before bedtime. I'm not getting any younger, even if he thinks he is.

::levels eyes ahead, watching lieutenantkim blow a raspberry into his squealing charge's stomach::

::steps up pace, coming along side lieutenantkim and motioning for own kid back::

::hides grimace at slobber that accompanies hug and kiss, pointing him back::

All yours. I'm no good with pity parties that aren't my own.

::opens mouth for another gee, thanks before thinking better of it...even in a mood, her ears works better than fine::

::chucks kelsie_wildman's chin one last time before stepping back to fall in line beside wife::

Sweetheart, you're not getting old...or at least, if you are, you don't look like it. You're beautiful.

::hurries on before dubious nature of compliment can be peeled apart...somehow, it's doubtful I'd love you anyway would help::

And Tom hasn't forgotten you. He just has a narrow field of focus sometimes, and since you don't feel a need to constantly vie for his attention...

...he's just almost forgotten me.

You're no help, Harry.

::softens snipe with an arm squeeze::

It's okay, though. This is what happens. People move away, grow up...for the most part...

::frowns at son's back::

Andrew, don't hold her upside down, you idiot!

::expels another breath::

My father is still young and it would be ridiculous to be upset with him for not stagnating and clinging to the past...

...and human. Which you are too, you know.

Maybe you should talk to him about this.

And sound like some spoiled brat vying for attention?

He already has one of those, and could for a while yet.

Wait, so it's sibling issues on top of daddy issues?

::whistles under breath...gotta give it to her, she doesn't do anything half way::

::quickly drops baby into her arms before she can ready a full strength smack::

Times like this make me glad I'm an only child...or was...until I wasn't...and sorta was again...

::rounds bend, lifting shoulders from slight slump...and chin too::

Why does everyone hate me?

::doesn't wait for or expect answer, cold-shouldering sister to push forward and enter security code into door::
