Colby tried to get into bed without waking Charlie. It didn’t work.

“Hey.” Mumbled Charlie.

“Hey, go back to sleep.”

“You check on Esther?”

“Out cold.”

“Good." Charlie let out a long breath. "Colby, Dad caught her reading his Ian Fleming novels today.”

“You mean playing with them?”

Charlie shook his head slowly. “No. She was reading them.”

“Charlie, she’s three.”

“I know. He had her read them out loud. Her pronunciation needs work but the comprehension is there.”

“Wow. I though her vocabulary was good for her age but…”

“Colby, did you know her Spanish is almost fluent?”

Colby gave a little shrug. “Well, it’s pretty good. She’s been picking it up from the kids at the park.”

“You should check and see. I think it’s better than that.”

Colby gave Charlie a kiss. “I knew you couldn’t father a child who wasn’t a genius.”

“I’m good at math." Charlie objected. "It’s a completely different part of the brain.”

“Doesn’t matter. She’s brilliant just like her daddy.”

“I’ll take her in for an I.Q. test next week.”

“Those numbers don’t matter, Charlie. Come here.” He wrapped his arms around Charlie and held him close “Go to sleep. Forget numbers tonight. Your little girl will be all about the words.”

Charlie looked at him. “We are in so much trouble.”
