Luau sat with Brooke at bedtime. He tucked her in and got ready to read No, David for the seven thousandth time.
She snuggled with her Jesus doll and made a declaration.
“Jesus is my husband.”
“Really, Brooke?” Luau stuttered. “That’s um, great.”
(Ed note .. She’s been working on figuring out husbands and wives recently. I’m pretty sure there’s not a lot of deeper meaning in this, so let’s not start calling her Sister Brooke just yet, OK?)
She sat quietly with her – uh - husband for a moment, then said, “Hey, Dad! Jesus and I have big news!!!”
Luau braced himself.
“What’s that, little one?”
She and Jesus made their announcement.
“Noggin is now Nick Jr!”
“Yes it is, Brooke,” Luau said as he breathed a sigh of relief and gratefully launched into the seven thousandth reading of No, David.
The happy couple
