Everyone deserves a second chance
Now Becky was trying to prove it to her daughter
As they watched the Twitter feed for conformation
But as the minutes flowed by, Becky knew that it wasn’t going to happen
Looking at her daughter’s expectant face, she decided on a course of action
Eva, your dad just said we should go get ice cream. The three year old cheered
“To the max, and beyond!” I know that’s not right, but the five year old I swing my pillow at doesn’t seem to notice. She attacks me with a two handed over the head pillow chop, threatening me to split me in two. And by splitting me in two I mean from deep revitalizing belly laughter. I collapse to the ground, taking her down with me, both of us gasping for air between the laughs and tears. This is just what we needed since her mother wasn’t coming home again. At least this was one battle we both could win.
