There was nothing to do while Number Two dawdled over his dinner plate but look at him. I studied a face that had thinned out in the pattern following babies to boyhood. He ate sweetly. He's the only one who makes chewing sounds I don't mind listening to.
He watched me watching him. "I love your eyes," he said, his mouth a green gape of broccoli.
The unexpected compliment drew a smile from my lips. I laughed a little, my grin growing.
"And your big teeth," he added.
