"Well, there's no sense complaining. You're going to fall asleep the minute your head hits the mattress, we both know it."

Lauren grunts in protest, kicking her legs and whining. "Enh!"

"Mmhmm. I'm sure." Juliet smooths her hand over Lauren's hair and finishes doing up her pajama onesie. Pulling the babe into her arms, she bounces her soothingly until Lauren's head is bobbing onto her shoulder tiredly. Juliet grins and puts her into her crib, and sure enough, Lauren is asleep within seconds, her fist stuffed not-so-gracefully into her mouth.

Juliet pokes her head into the room of each sleeping girl, chuckling at April's butt sticking up in the air, her face pressed in the mattress - nothing new there - and Clementine sleeping with a book open right on her face. Juliet flicks off the light beside her bed and places a bookmark in the book, setting it on the nightstand, before leaving the room and heading downstairs.

The clink of plates and silverware lead her to the kitchen, and when she gets there her smile grows wider. Humming softly, she kisses James' back, right between the planes of his shoulders.

"I said I'd be back to help with the dishes, you know."
