I think it’s mostly surprise mixed with guilt (oops, I was supposed to be watching her!).
Yes, that’s true to an extent (been there—finding good, reliable daycare isn’t easy though). Mostly, as Schrodinger’s Dog pointed out, Brad and Toni had different childhood experiences. Brad was raised in a stable environment. Toni had a traumatic childhood and is hesitant to start a family. They would do well to seek counseling before starting a family (or Toni has to open up more about why she is hesitant so that Brad gets the picture…hopefully it won’t take a hammer).
Brad is ready, but Toni doesn’t want to give up her career just yet. Perhaps Brad will be a house husband if/when Toni gets a good promotion.
Puddles is looking forward to Act II !
LOL. That’s karma, man!
Brad’s keeping Shannon’s fingers out of the paint and her ears out range of the neighbors who are probably yelling expletives. TJ is probably in a bad mood over his casserole catastrophe and doesn’t have his usual reserve of patience for Shannon.
Better change the cell phone numbers, too!
…and along the way, it collected interest!
