This was the last time me and Jim would go shopping with the kids.
This was the last time we would go shopping.
This was the last time we would ever watch Ned with Katie.
Why had I let Delia convince me that trading sons would be a good idea? At least mine can 't cop an attitude yet. Because he still makes adorable squeaks and squawks with a few words here and there. But he 's kind of getting the hang of words.
But we 've been at the apple station for over a half an hour so that Katie could pick out the perfect shade of apples before deciding entirely she wanted red apples.
"I don 't know daddy. But mama says we should only eat green apples, cause green means good." She sighs. "I don 't know."
Giving a hopeful look at Jim, he shrugs his shoulders and goes back to helping her pick out the perfect apples for her play date with Hannah.
"Why don 't we just get the greens ones this time then, and I can get you ONE red apple. Deal?" Jim says and we all pray that she says yes.
"Okay! That 's a very good idea," she giggles.
"Hallelujah! We 've made a decision." I say and highfive Ned. "Can we get the rest of this list now?"
"Yes," he says placing the apples in the cart. "What 's next?"
"We need eggs, milk and two loafs of bread," I say reading off of the list.
"Can we get cheerios?" She pipes in.
"Of course we can!" Jim says grabbing the box from the shelves.
"You 're so annoying..." Ned groans.
"I am not. Ned Banks, you take that back!" She gasps.
"What if I don 't feel like it?" Ned laughs.
"I will hurt you," she mutters.
"Katie..." I warn.
"He was mean first," she whines.
"I do not care," I sa...

...nbelievably cute and are totally gonna get married one day," Melinda says helping me unload the cart.
"You think?" I ask and take the toothpaste from her hand.
"Yeah..." She smiles. "And she 's gonna have him wrapped around her finger and boss him around with big words and make him kiss her when he apologizes. And to think... it will have all started when she was five and he was nine."
"Well, just remind me to lecture him before they start dating," I laugh as the teller rings up our items.
"I will. Now kiss me." She says smiling.
"And you wonder where Katie gets that bossiness from..." I reply softly and walk forward.
"Apologize!" She gasps and crosses her arms over her chest.
"Or what?" I laughs.
"I will never look at you again," she sighs and turns her head away.
"Too bad I 'm handsome," I say turning her head and kissing her deeply.
"Apology accepted," she giggles.

- “Please,” I sarcastically gesture toward the chair, “make yourself at home.” “I’ll take a rum and coke if it’s not too much trouble.” I glare at him but pull out two glasses anyway. As I make the drinks, I ask, “So…what did you want to talk about?” The grin slides of his face. “I don’t know. I didn’t even like Morgan that much in the first place, but I’ve never been dumped before. I am always the one that ends things. It hurts more than I thought it would.” “Dylan,” I say as I hand him his glass, “let me remind you that you left me sitting on a yacht by myself for four hours while you slept with a stripper....

- I draw my feet up into the leather recliner. Hug my knees to my chest. The chair is sage green. The wall’s a boring beige color. The room is freezing. I don’t know why they keep it so cold. Maybe so we won’t stay any longer than we have to. If I could I’d stay forever, because here is better than home with Frank. Dr. Beaker slides his pen in the pocket of his shirt and shuts my swollen file, laying it on the floor by his chair. He leans forward, elbows on his knees, his hands cupped. Never has he looked at me so solidly in the eyes.... [tags: Debut albums, 2007 singles, 2006 albums]

- “Little Red Riding Hood” A Fairy Tale created by adults for adults. The Fairy Tale has sexual themes and messages that come out as you read and tell the fairy tale. Telling little kids the story of “Little Red Riding Hood” when they are not of the age to understand the meaning behind such sexual material has no point to it.

- A father and son have a relationship that’s virtually irreplaceable. They bond on a different level than do mother and son, but both are necessary. Sometimes, the mother or father isn’t present in a child’s life, greatly affecting the child. Some may leave for personal reasons, while others leave because they feel it will benefit the child. Having one around could preserve the child to an extent, but being without both could generally wreck the child’s outlook on life all together. In Sherman Alexie’s “Flight” the main character, Zits, loses his mother and child support and what he thought his father, out of spite, abandoned him.... [tags: Sherman Alexie, Flight, anger]
