Lyn hugged it close to her chest, her green eyes sparkling softly behind her glasses. “And when the baby comes, it’ll belong to him or her.â€? She laughed quietly. “Of course, somehow Patty and I are going to have to figure out how to share it between this one and her and Dominic’s new addition.â€?

Alison stared at her mother blankly for a moment. “Wow, Mom…you really need to get a life if you remember all that.â€? Lyn rolled her eyes and carefully set Booboo down on one of the boxes with a heavy sigh.

Alison eyed the bear warily. “Legacy, huh?â€? Rolling her eyes, she started for the stairs but stopped, glancing back at the toy. She reached out and grabbed the bear, hugging it close to her chest in a child-like manner.
