as it is

Ellie wasn't sure what Roger was getting at. As it was, she was trying to get the kitchen in order for supper. She had everything out to make spaghetti sauce, and she had Charlie on her hip as she was trying to find the noodles.

"Are you trying to tell me Halloween just won't be fun enough for you this year, just because of Charlie?" She winced. As it was it was so cold out now and there were flurries about. Who in their right mind wanted to be out in this, anyway, she thought.

"Its just I had something special planned." He stared at her.

"Oh, you and Olivia?" She pushed Charlie higher on her waist. "Like what?"

"A hay ride at the pumpkin patch." He sighed.

"Well, you better do it quick because it looks like snow." She informed him.

"I was hoping we'd have a party, but we can't, now can we?" He looked at Charlie.

"If the weather was better, I'd take him home for the weekend, but I don't want to chance it. Didn't a party get you in trouble last time?" Ellie reminded him.

Roger pouted a bit.

"You two go out and do your thing, all right, can't you go to some party?" She looked at him.

"We could, but I'd rather have one here." He told her.

"Have you talked to Olivia about this?" Ellie knew she'd be on her side.

"No," he shrugged. "Do you know where she is?"

Ellie shook her head.

"She's in my car, you know." Roger fretted.

"Well, call her." Ellie shook her head. If anyone was the baby around here, it was Roger.

Ellie definitely has a point about Roger.

Yeah, they have to be more careful with a baby around, too.

Meg said...

Ellie has a good point. Roger should be more undertanding about having a little kid around.
