We were relaxing on the bed a few nights ago, Fuss, the wife, myself & a cohort of Cozy Friends (Peanut, Coodgie Woodgie, Giant Coodgie, Pelvis, Bomb Bird, Nosey), sharing a companionable interlude. The Wife was reading, Fuss was wrapped in a blankie & surrounded by Cozy Friends and I was reclining, fielding Fuss' queries and exclamations with a book on my chest.
During a lull in his stream of consciousness I raised my book, then he sighed and said gently, half to himself,
"We have a wonderful family."
What he made of both his parents bursting into tears is a mystery.
