Vera was always the first one up on Sundays. As getting ready for church while taking care of a toddler was less than ideal, the blonde had gotten used to getting up a good hour before her son was set to rise.
After a quick shower, putting on her clothes and applying discreet makeup Vera kissed her slumbering wife on the forehead and went to wake Louis.
Quickly enough the little boy was out of his bed and toddling down the stairs while holding his mother's hand. "Today is church," he spoke loudly though attempting to whisper.
"Yes, but before church, we are going to prepare a surprise for maman." Vera announced ready to tone down her son's enthusiastic reaction.
Doing her best to take Louis' input into consideration while she prepared Evelyn's breakfast, Vera had to put her foot down when her son suggested adding pieces of chocolate to the omelet they were cooking.
"But I want to take the tray," Louis whined when Vera took the tray that contained Evelyn's plate, a coffee, a glass of juice, a single rose and to Louis' insistence a framed picture of him so his maman could remember it was Mother's Day. "Louis love, how will you wake up maman if both of your hands are holding the tray?"
The little boy's face scrunched up as he tried to find a solution to the problem his mother had raised. "I hold it after I wake her," Louis finally offered before he started running towards the stair.
