Mother always knows

For @spaztronautwriter: Happy Holidays, Jesse! Your blog and your creations are as wonderful as you are, and I hope you enjoy this fic as much as I enjoy you! :D – @entersomethingcleverhere

It may have been Christmas Eve, but Robbie Queen would not stop pouting.

He pouted all throughout lunch, even though Raisa cooked his favorite mac and cheese. He pouted as he watched the staff decorate the manor. He pouted as he and his mother lit the first candle on the menorah. He even pouted when Uncle Digg and Aunt Lyla came by with Sara and JJ.

His pout carried into his bedtime routine, as his mother helped him into his Thomas the Tank Engine pajamas. She looked really pretty, in a sparkly red dress that went all the way down to the floor, and he could smell the perfume Dad got her for her birthday. Her attire just reminded him of why he was annoyed, and his scowl deepened.

“Robbie, sweetie,” she murmured as she ran a hand over his smooth blonde hair. “What’s wrong? I thought you were excited to spend the night with your friends.”

He crossed his stubborn arms over his chest. “I want to go to the party! Why can’t I go?”

She chuckled and sat down on the bed, bringing him onto her lap. “Because, you’re going to be bored,” she said soothingly as she pressed a kiss on his forehead. “It’s just going to be a bunch of adults talking.”

He shook his head hard. “But, Mom!” he protested. “What if Santa comes and he sees a bunch of people in the house and he doesn’t leave my presents? I have to be there to convince him!”

“Don’t worry,” she reassured him with a knowing smile. “Santa won’t skip our house. He knows how good you’ve been this year.”

“But how do you know?” he demanded.

She shrugged. “I just know. Just like I know how you’ll be bored at the party.”

Robbie sighed and gave his mother a long-suffering look. What was it about parents thinking they knew everything? Sometimes there were things that they just didn’t know.

At that moment, Robbie’s dad walked into the bedroom. Weirdly enough, he wasn’t dressed yet, still in the same sweater and jeans he had been wearing earlier.

“Hey, buddy,” his dad grinned, taking the spot on the edge of the bed next to his wife. “You excited to spend the night with Sara and JJ?”

He pushed his way out of his mother’s lap and climbed onto his dad’s. His father had always been more reasonable than his mom when it came to these sort of things. Surely he’d let him go to the party.

“Dad, if I promise to be good and not let any food spill on my shirt, can I go to the party?” he asked eagerly.
