Luke considered me. "Hmm." He smiles a lot with his eyes, and that's what I usually see first. But this time, he was outright mirthful. "You can get a scooter. One of those electric ones." Then he put his hands out, as if goosing a motorcycle, and instead of VROOM, he said, "zzzzzzz."
We lost it, both of us going, "ZZzzzzz, zz, zzzzzzzz!"
But I'm sitting here thinking ... what went on in his head between hearing his mom say that she didn't think he needed her so much anymore, to allowing that she might get a scooter, as a compromise, to how funny mom on a scooter would be. In the time it took his grin to go from his eyes to his lips.
