Antoinette's Home From Work (Photostory)
If you recall, Tony was with the kids at fun day. Antoinette was working on a cooking TV spot that day, and couldn't join them. She is finally home.
The Taylor home has gone through a slight remodel. Antoinette still has a few things to add like curtains and accessories on the bookcase and rattan shelf.
"Hello. I'm home."
"Hello girls. Why is the music up so loud?" (Antoinette)
Nikaya hops up to turn the volume down on the stereo.
Zahara and Nikaya are listening to music and eating their icees they got from fun day.
"Where is your father and Kenaz?" (Antoinette)
"Dad is upstairs and Kenaz is right there. He fell asleep." (Nikaya)
Kenaz is stirring a little and Antoinette scoops him up. Whenever she has to tape a cooking segment, the days are extremely long. She enjoys coming home to the kids.
"Well hello pumpkin. Did you have fun today?" (Antoinette)
"Hi, mommy." (Kenaz)
"Mommy, we had so much fun today. They had bumper cars, and a playground. Then we went to the beach and Nikaya got to go on the ski thingy." (Zahara)
"What's the ski thingy?" (Antoinette to Nikaya)
"She means the jetski." (Nikaya answers without moving from her icee.)
"I hope you aren't getting that on your dad's newspaper." (Antoinette)
"He already finished reading it." (Nikaya)
"I hope you're right." (Antoinette)
Zahara hops down and heads over to her treat.
"I got a blue icee. Nikaya got a lemon one." (Zahara)
"Why are you guys eating those so close to dinner time?" (Antoinette)
"Daddy said it was okay." (Nikaya)
Antoinette heads to the kitchen. Kenaz is right behind her.
"Mommy, I'm hungry." (Kenaz)
Antoinette looks at the mess in the kitchen. She is not happy.
"Who left the juice and the peanut butter on the counter?" (Antoinette)
There's silence in the den.
"MOMMY, I'm hungry." (Kenaz)
"Okay, Kenaz. How about a graham cracker?" (Antoinette)
"This should hold you until dinner." (Antoinette)
Just then, Tony enters the kitchen.
"Honey, you're home. How was work?" (Tony)
"Work was okay. Too long, as usual." (Antoinette)
"I'm sorry about the mess. I was just headed down to clean it up, but I wanted to take a quick shower." (Tony)
Antoinette starts to complain about her messy kitchen, but decides to let it pass. She imagines dealing with three kids all day is enough to give her husband a pass on the dirty kitchen.... at least for today.
