"Computer, initiate water spill clean-up". Wow, I could put that computer to so many uses! And lucky, lucky, Deanna--only sick in the morning? I was sick 24 hours a day. Even so, looks like Riker has his hands full with those mischievous kids.

Oh, hooray for the "talks." Not looking forward to it later down the line with my own...and that was awesome with the bubble beards. You sure you're not a parent? You've got a pretty good idea of what's waiting for you.
Author's Response: Glad you liked it TemplarSora. No I'm not a parent. But my niece she does this and she's only 3. My little brother's also do this when playing. They are still little too. So I just got the idea from them. I tried to make it as real to life as possible. I'm always dreaming. What can I say? I love writing Riker's character. He's such a beautiful man.

I've met Jonathan Frakes and I could totally hear his voice as I read this, Well done.
Author's Response: *Sighs* I'm so jealous. I've wanted to meet him since I was about 15 I think. Well, maybe next year when the cast comes to Portland for Comicon in February. Thanks for the review and glad you like it.

You've got Riker's voice down as far as I'd imagine him as a dad. The girls splashing in the tub? Yeah, it gets EVERYWHERE. I wish the floor would clean itself up like it does here, lol. What's the secret those two are keeping, though?
Author's Response: What Laura said about her mother having a baby. Her and Riker are the only other two that know. Her little sister doesn't know.

More trouble bundles to come. ah. A lovely scene. Very funny and of course given the meme about Riker's growing a beard it seems only fitting the girl's should test out a bubble beard (fun times). AI clean up is very handy, although it is a little troubling that they played with bath unsupervised and that Deanna was feeling so sick as to lay down. But a truly sweet scene.
Author's Response: Thanks MF. I actually originally had them getting into trouble from Riker about playing in the bathroom alone unsupervised, but it went over the word count and had to edit it out.

A full house, it looks like! Adorable. I know Will's position all too well; it's pretty much impossible to stay mad at them when they do something so cute. The only thing is, your entry is 43-44 words over limit. If you can get it to 500 or less by midnight, it'll qualify; if not, it won't.
Author's Response: Ok thanks. Will get it fixed now.

I want to live in the 24th (25th?) century, when cleaning up the mess your kids made just means ordering the AI to do it. I bet that would cut down on half the yelling in my house.
Sweet scene. My sister and I used to do the bubble beard thing, too, when we were tiny.

Awww. I loved the beards bit. Riker seems to be a good dad, as to be expected.
Also, I want to have a floor that cleans itself as well! I guess that might have something to do with Riker being relatively laid back about the mess - I'm sure every parent would be if they didn't actually have to do any of the cleaning!
Nice chapter once again!
