"Hi, Daddy," Jack cried as he ran towards his father and Emily at the end of the school day.
"Hey there, buddy," Hotch replied.
"Hi there, Emmie how's the baby?" Jack asked pointing to her stomach. She and Hotch were expecting a little bundle of joy in about six months.
"The baby is doing good. How was your day?" Emily questioned the five-year-old.
"It was good. Mrs. Baker read us a story about muse and a cookie. Then we played outside then we drawed pictures."
"You drew pictures," his father corrected.
"Yes, that's what I said, daddy." Emily laughed at her step-son's reply. Hotch just smirked as they continued heading for home.
They'd just entered their neighborhood when Jack spoke up from the backseat.
"Daddy, can I ask you a question?"
"Sure you can. What is it, buddy?"
"Where do babies come from?" The unit chief swerved and nearly crashed the SUV at his son's words. Glancing at Emily he was sure her worried look matched his own.
"Well, I uh," Hotch stuttered at a loss for words. "The baby comes from Emily's tummy. You know that. We told you that when we told you she was going to have a baby. Don't you remember?" Hotch questioned.
"Yeah, but how'd it get into her tummy?" Jack persisted. Reaching out Emily placed a hand on her husband's arm.
"Let me give it a try," she suggested.
"Be my guest," Hotch replied.
"When a mommy and daddy love each other they they are both given a special seed. Once the two seeds are put together, the baby is put into the mommy's tummy. Do you understand now, sweetie?" Emily asked.
"Yeah, I think so. So how long until the baby comes out?" he wondered.
"About six months," Emily replied.
"Wow, that's a long time," the little boy declared. The two adults smiled.
"Yes it is," his father agreed. They ontinued to smile until Jack's next question reached them.
"How does the baby come out?" Hotch and Emily glanced at each other and shrugged. How in the world were they going to explain that one.
