Randolph's Family Connection
Lauren and her husband are enjoying a quiet night out together.
"I should probably give Faith and Angelica a call. They will be shocked to see we're not home." (Lauren)
"Didn't you leave the girls a note? Why do you need to call, too? They are not little girls. You need to stop babying them." (Husband)
"Oh honey. That is just what I do. I worry about them all the time." (Lauren)
"You worry, and I get the grey hair. There's something wrong with that picture." (Husband)
Maurice and Saba are here with their 13 yr old twin daughters. The parents take every opportunity they can to communicate with the girls. Thirteen is a pivotal age. Sabrina, the chatty twin, is discussing an incident she had on the school bus.
After about ten minutes of Sabrina being overly dramatic in her story telling, Saba turns to Samia, "So how did you make out on your math test?"
"The teacher hasn't graded them yet. " (Samia)
"Well how do you think you did?" (Saba)
"I think I did okay. It was easier than I expected." (Samia)
Before Randolph and Melanie arrive, I thought I would take a minute and introduce his daughter, Gabrielle, from his previous marriage.
Gabrielle is 14 and lives in town with her mom. She stays with her dad every other weekend. It will be interesting to see how Melanie deals with Randolph's daughter. Teen daughters can be very difficult, especially when they are close to their dads.
I also want to introduce Sandra's husband. This is a Ken Griffey Jr. sports figure, but he reminds me of Deion Sanders, so I'm naming him Deion.
