The Talk (Photostory)
Dinner is over and Danielle is relaxing with a cup of cocoa and chocolate chip cookies.
The boys are in their favorite room in the house, playing with their new cars. Do you get the feeling their are a little spoiled?
These cars are the perfect size for the road on the rug.
Rod volunteered to clean the kitchen. He's almost done. He's contemplating the upcoming conversation with his dear wife.
Upstairs Danielle is also anticipating her conversation with Rod. She doesn't like being kept in the dark, and she wants him to come clean.
With the final dishes washed, Rod makes his way to the living room. Danielle keeps her eyes fixed on the t.v.
She takes a sip of her cocoa as Rod removes his shoes. She has yet to look in his direction.
"So I'm here. Let's talk." (Rod)
"I'm listening." (Danielle)
"And what is it that you would like me to say?" (Rod)
"Rod! I would like for you to tell me what is going on with Melanie,." (Danielle)
"You and I both know that Melanie is prone to going overboard. I didn't see the need to discuss her antics." (Rod)
"It mattered enough for you to discuss it with Tony and not your wife. I think you owe me an explanation and an apology." (Danielle)
"And what exactly am I apologizing for? For protecting my wife and children from a hateful woman? It is my job to protect you guys and I will never apologize for doing my job." (Rod)
With those sentiments, Danielle's tone softens. How do you argue with a man who just wants to protect you. "I just want to be kept in the loop. I hate being blindsided." (Danielle)
"I will do my best, but you have to trust me. When there is something important to tell you, I will. Melanie is full of drama and sometimes she says things without thinking. I just have to let it all play out. Do you trust me?" (Rod)
"Of course I trust you, but..." (Danielle)
"No buts." (Rod)
Rod starts taking the hot chocolate and cookies from Danielle.
"What are you doing?" (Danielle)
"Didn't you just say that you trust me? Just relax and go with the flow." (Rod)
Rod puts Danielle's feet in his lap.
He then starts massaging her right foot.
"Mmmm, that feels good." (Danielle)
Rod just keeps on massaging without speaking.
Danielle is in seventh heaven. She decides not to let Melanie stress her out or bring a riff between her and Rod. It's just not worth it.
As Rod starts pressing on pressure points, Danielle gets even more relaxed. She leans back and closes her eyes.
"If you keep this up, you are gong to have a very good night, tonight." (Danielle)
He looks up at his wife, without stopping the massage. He's tempted to pick her up and carry her to the bedroom. Then he remembers the kids are still up. Dam*.
Speaking of the kids, they have divided up the cars between them. They each got three of the same color. The extra colors were black and green.
"Are you ready to go again? I'm ahead 4 to 1." (Julian)
I found the cute little cars at the Cracker Barrel last night for $3.99. I can't believe how perfect they are. Looks like Rod dodged a bullet. He's so smooth.
