Spoke Too Soon

Scene: Melissa is running a bath for the Wolvog and ChickieNob. Lindsay holds Baby Fred and we're talking over the roar of the faucet.

Wolvog: (looking up at Lindsay and Fred) When can we get another baby? Can we get another baby now?

Melissa: Sweetie, remember how I told you that some people can have a baby quickly and some people need help? And sometimes it takes the doctors a long time to figure out how to get the baby in the belly? And sometimes it doesn't work at all? And...

Wolvog: The babies in here (he points to the dresser in the next room where I have placed the sponge capsules). Those babies. That's what I call my babies...my little baby sponges. Can we get one tonight?

Lapped by a bathtub. Literally.

:) I suppose it would be inconvenient, if socially acceptable, to get rid of the bathtub.
