Changeup, Chapter 2

"Catch the ball, son."

His dad rolled the soft, squeaky blue ball towards him. Giggling, Joe snatched the ball in both hands and held it above his head.

"Good job, Joe!"  His dad smiled proudly at him.  "Now throw it back to Daddy!"

Joe tossed the ball in the air with excited laughter. It bounced off his head and rolled away.

His mom walked into the room at that moment and picked up the ball as it rolled toward her feet.  "Time for dinner, boys."

His dad looked up at her from his perch on the living room floor.  "Just give us five minutes more, Hon."

She raised an eyebrow at Joe's father.  "You're just as much a kid as Joe is," she admonished him.

"Thanks, Hon!"
