“C’mon, y’all, parade time.”

Walt takes my hand. “All our boys. Where’s the bonus child?”

David tries to act like he isn’t excited, but he’s grinnin’ like a fool.

Kass calls for help with her braid.

“C’mon, sis, it’s just hair,” JJ calls.

I fix her braid. Rocky yanks it. She unzips his coat and glares him down.

Walt grins. “That’s our girl.”

“She’ll be ours by Christmas.” I always wanted a girl. Never thought I’d get one this way. That miserable preacher didn’t deserve her anyway.

Kass grabs the bag of candy to throw and skips out the door.
