Darren chuckled lightly, as he absentmindedly played with Lily’s hair. He grinned at him and then picked Lily up when the toddler held her arms up for him, before following Chris towards the kitchen. He grinned at him, curious as to what it was. “Ooh, that sounds delicious,” he said and Lily agreed, giggling as she clapped her hands. Darren kissed her on the cheek, then Chris on the lips. “Well, this definitely calls for a lesson one of these days,” he chuckled. “You should teach me how to make this,” he hummed. “And we’ll find something from my mom’s recipe book to try one time too,” he said, grabbing some bowls and forks for them.
Chris kissed Darren back, smiling. “I wanted your birthday dinner to be something special.” He shrugged, pouring some apple juice into a sippy cup for Lily. “But I love the idea of trying to learn more dishes. Especially if this one turns out to be edible.” He laughed. Taking a ladel, Chris stirred the dish a few times, then layered the bowls. First, he put down a layer of wild rice, then a layer of the chicken, before topping it with sauteed vegetables. Next, he stood back, chewing his lip as he looked at his creations. “It looks like the picture.” He mused, placing the smallest bowl in front of Lily, handing the child her favorite spoon. She beamed at him, then took a bite, after blowing on it like he taught her. “Mmmmm!! Yum!” She chimed, dancing in her seat. “Well..” Chris laughed. “It has her vote.” He replied to his friend, while taking his own seat at the table.
Than my two year old daughter crawling into bed with me when I have one of my night terrors, and ‘lala-ing’ me back to sleep.
Lily > everyone else
Yeah, I definitely do :)
Darren caught her and blew raspberries on he cheeks, causing her to squeal, and giggle. He grinned at Chris and nodded. “It was perfect,” he replied, as Lily slipped the ring onto his finger. “I love it,” he gushed happily before kissing both of them again. “I hope it’s not past someone’s bedtime, because I haven’t eaten since lunch,” he chuckled a little bit, playing with Lily’s hair as she snuggled up to him.
"It’s waaaay past someone’s bedtime." Chris chuckled, tugging one of Lily’s braids. "But we’ll make an exception since it’s Papa’s birthday." Chris snuck another kiss from Darren’s lips, relishing in the familiarity. Then he kissed the top of Lily’s head. "C’mon my favorite munchkins. I have just the meal to hit the spot. It’s been in the crock pot all evening." He hummed, standing up and stretching himself out, having been curled up on Lily’s tiny bed for too long. He led the way from the bedroom, into the kitchen where his concoction was brewing. "I hope this turns out okay." He chuckled, taking the lid off the dish. "I found a recipe for Honey Glazed Chicken Adobo. But I’m still working on this whole cooking fancy stuff." Chris admitted.
Rude. Try saving one for me next time, you sugar addict.
