Julian's New Toy (Photostory)
When we last saw Danielle and Jacob, they were headed to the boys' bedroom, after his bath. As you will see, Danielle has not had time to finish decorating their room. Her plan is to get Jacob a car bed, too, and decorate the room with a complete car theme. (I still have to add some side decals to Julian's bed).
Jacob enters the room first, where Julian is in his bed playing with a toy he just got while out with Sharmaine.
Danielle is right behind Jacob.
"My toy." (Jacob)
"That was nice of cousin Sharmaine. I hope you thanked her." (Danielle)
"I thanked her and I gave her a hug." (Julian)
"Well good. It's important to always remember your manners." (Danielle)
"My toy." (Jacob)
"No, Jacob. This is my toy." (Julian)
"Stop! You're going to break it." (Julian)
"Alright Jacob. That's enough." (Danielle)
Danielle reaches down to separate Jacob from the toy, and all hell breaks loose. Jacob goes into full temper tantrum mode.
"Sweetie, you can't claim all the toys." (Danielle)
Jacob is not having it. He continues to scream, almost squirming out of Danielle's arms.
"Mommy you want to see what my robot can do?" (Julian)
"Not right now, I'm trying to calm Jacob down.
As Danielle tries to hold Jacob and get his pjs out the draw, Rod appears in the doorway.
"What is all that noise?" (Rod)
"Oh you're home. Jacob is having a fit because he can't have Julian's new toy." (Danielle)
"Hi Daddy. You want to see what my new robot can do?" (Julian)
"Now that's a pretty cool looking robot. Let me help your mother first, then I'll take a look at it." (Rod)
"Here, let me have him." (Rod)
"Be my guest." (Danielle)
"Jacob...okay, now that's enough." (Rod)
"It probably didn't help that he didn't get his full nap." (Danielle)
"Here, Jacob can play with my robot. I don't want him to cry." (Julian)
"That's nice of you, but we can't reward his bad behavior." (Rod)
"Do you want to put on his pjs, or should I?" (Danielle)
"I got it." (Rod)
Jacob finally settles down as Rod sits down to put on his pjs. Rod cleans his tear stained face with the towel before proceeding.
"I'm sorry I made you cry, Jacob. You can play with my robot tomorrow." (Julian)
"Play with my robot?" (Jacob)
"No, play with my robot. (Julian)
"Arms up, Jacob." (Rod)
"Julian, don't forget you're taking a bath as soon as cousin Sharmaine finishes in the bathroom." (Danielle)
"Don't smile at me now after that awful display you just put on." (Danielle)
"Say, I'm sorry, Mommy." (Rod)
"Speaking of sorry, I'm sorry I was gone so long today. I planned to be back sooner, but time got away from me. Do you accept my apology?" (Rod)
Before Danielle can answer, Sharmaine appears in the doorway.
"Awww, you guys are so cute together." (Sharmaine)
"So are you headed out, now?" (Danielle)
"Yes, I'm meeting my girlfriend for a drink or two. Then we might go dancing." (Sharmaine)
"Be careful out there." (Danielle)
"Can I go with you?" (Julian)
"Kids aren't allowed where I'm going, but I promise we will hang out again, soon." (Sharmaine)
"Thanks again for my robot." (Julian)
"You are welcome, again. (Sharmaine)
Sharmaine turns to leave.
"Guess what Julian? It's bath time." (Danielle)
"Oh man. I hate bath time." (Julian)
"Come on. I'll help you with your bath." (Rod)
"Thanks, hon. I'm going to read Jacob a book and put him to bed." (Danielle)
