Every little boy needs an uncle

Keeping an eye on Milton as he busied himself making up a story to go along with the pictures in one of his favorite storybooks, Jen pulled her hair up into a messy ponytail. Though he'd been an adorable baby, though a little louder than she'd expected, as he'd gotten a little older Jen had finally found time to take care of him, and dress up a bit, like she used to. Maybe she'd never dress like she could before the pregnancy, but at least she no longer looked like she'd simply rolled out of bed and put on whatever was closest.

"And then what did Piglet do?" she prodded gently, as Milton took a break from his rambling story.

Before he could answer, someone - probably Rob, Jen had been waiting for him to visit - knocked at the door. Completely forgetting his book, Milton dropped it to the floor and ran as quickly as his little legs could move to the front window, peering out to see who was visiting. Following him slowly, Jen couldn't help a wide smile - he was just so cute, even if he was her child. Honestly, he was probably the only kid who she liked, besides his little friends. Kids weren't really her thing, despite the fact that she was a mom. "Who's there?" she asked.

"Uncle Rob!" he informed her happily.

"Really?" she asked, covering her desire to smile at him with fake shock as he nodded. "We should let him in then," she told him, opening the door. "Hi, Rob," she greeted him with a grin.

"Hi!" Milton automatically hugged Rob. Though he was usually shy around adults, Rob had been around often enough that that was never an issue.
