Go Pact!

Can we make a pact?  The three of us?  Right now? 

What's a pact?

A promise.

He's silent, hasn't spoken yet.  He's watching her.

I explain to my daughter and husband what I want.

I search their eyes.  It's there.  They want it too.

Hands go to center of bed.  His upon mine, hers upon his.

We promise.

She lifts her hand into the air and smiles big.  Go pact! she says.

Oh, it's nothing so serious! No secret, just not blog worthy I guess! The great part was the actual pact making. We were all in bed together and it led to a tickle fest and such.

We made a pact for no TV three nights a week. I've been working on this for a while with these two, and they want the time together, just really don't want to give up that TV time. First night we did it we played board game after card game after, and on and on.

Left Gregg a little frazzled - too much of a good thing I guess!
