Imagine finding a dwarfling on the quest, who instantly takes a shine to you, and it makes your favorite dwarf realize what a good mother you'll be one day
Balin: where is the wee one?
Dwalin: you spent five minutes in there?
You: well he’s asleep, go check if you like, just try not to wake him up please.
Thorin : *checks and sees the small slumbering dwarfling* did you bathe him?
You: yes, I also managed to comb and braid his hair, like you advised me to, without much trouble.
Gloin: teach me your secrets dwarfling charmer!
