'Joy, it will only be a few hours. Our neighbor across the street is in need of a babysitter, and I offered our services. Melanie cant, she's sick with the flu. Elka has a date with Max, so neither could babysit for her.' Joy eyes her, her look a bit worried. 'Honey, we've never been around children…other than Mel's kids. Remember the one and only time Mel trusted us to babysit Will and Jenna?'
Victoria sighs. 'Oh yes, the night we almost burned Melanie's kitchen down.'
Joy looks at her, raising an eyebrow. 'You're the one who didn't watch the food on the stove!'
Victoria groans, 'Joy, it was twenty some odd years ago. Honey, I know we've been considering parenthood together. Why don't we use this babysitting opportunity to see if we are ready to be parents?' Joy wraps her arms around Victoria, smiling a little. 'It couldn't hurt. I'm glad you and I are doing this you know…this parenthood thing. I dreamed in the back of my mind that you and I would take this on together. I know if we tried, we could be wonderful parents.'
Victoria puts a finger to Joy's lips, silencing her with a peck on the lips.
'Now baby, let's not get ahead of ourselves. We'll babysit, and see how things go from there. Agreed?'
Joy smiles sweetly, and says, 'Agreed.'
