My cell phone began buzzing like an angry bee on the desk next to me.
“Hey baby,” Rebecca’s voice came through the tiny speaker on the phone. “We’re headed back.”
“We?” I asked.
“I took Colton with me.”

“I…uh…I knew that.”
“Wow. Best dad ever today, huh?”
“Come on, we have three of ‘em, do I really have to keep track of them all?”
