Zaiden hugged his parents. “I will see you both again soon.”
He didn’t like seeing the tears in his mother’s eyes. He hugged her again.
“It feels like I am always saying goodbye to you.”
“We won’t be apart long. You and Dad will be home before you know it.”
She nodded and let him go. “You better get on the plane before it leaves without you.
They stopped and picked up Patrick on their way home. Zaiden had enjoyed his honeymoon, but he had also missed his son.
They spent the day playing together. By the time Patrick went down for his nap, Zaiden was worn out.
He collapsed onto the sofa beside Raelyn.”Are you sure you want another one around here?”
Raelyn nodded and smiled. “I want lots more. At least half a dozen.”
Zaiden thought she was nuts but smiled at her anyway.
“How about we take advantage of Patrick’s nap and start working on our first one?”
Zaiden grinned and chased her up the stairs.
