I heard a fit of giggles before I saw him. They got louder and louder as he got closer and closer. I turned to look at the doorway, the pancakes I was cooking long forgotten when emery ran up and hugged my legs.  I reached down and picked him up before setting him on my hip.

There was a mischievous glint shining in his eyes as he stared back at me with a full blown smile. The heavy footsteps that could be heard bounding down the stairs were unmistakable. I raised a questioning eyebrow in emerys direction. In return he wrapped his arms around ne neck loosely and buried his face in my chest. A small chuckle escaped my lips as I left a light kiss on his forehead.

I turned my attention back to the doorway. Standing there bent over, hands on knees, chest rising and falling rapidly was colton. I gave him a quick once over. Grey sweat pants hung low on his waist, a plain white t-shirt clung to his torso and his hair stuck up in all directions as if he had just woken up. I glanced up at the clock hanging above the doorway. Its 8am. Oh so he had just woken up.

When I looked back at colton my eyes widened in shock. On his face he wore... my make up? Colton sent a playful glare towards emery. Emery was quick to react as he tried to wriggle his way out of my hold. Unfortunately for him colton was quicker and stood firmly infront of us before he could escape. Colton tried to wear a angry face but with the make up on I dont think anyone could ever take him seriously.

"Did emery do that to you?" I nodded towards his face. The smile that wanted to finally come out did when he slowly nodded his head.

"Ive been chasing him around my room all morning." He pointed an accusing finger right in front of emerys face. I was wondering what the racket was. Without a warning emery reached forward a bit on coltons finger. Coltons yelp of surprise probably woke up the whole pack. When colton was finally able to get his finger back he took 2 steps away from us. Haha, whimp. You gotta admit, that was pretty funny. Naughty, but funny none the less.

"Emery. Thats not very nice" The smile still refused to leave my lips. Colton nodded in agreement although you could clearly see the amusement shining in his eyes.

"I surrender." Emery threw his hands up in mock surrender.

Me and colton looked at each other in surprise before we burst out laughing. We both sobered and stared at emery. His cheeks were puffed out and his bottom lip pouted. The smiles still lit up our faces but emerys was gone as soon as colton touched his hair.

Let me tell you this no matter what time of the day it is, no matter who you are or why you did it, never touch his hair. He may be 3 years old but hes very... obsessed.  Plus hes an alpha baby. They grow quicker, they're stronger and faster. Colton knew what he was getting himself into which is why he wasted no time in running for safety behind the dinning table.

I laughed at the faces of the others as they walked in and found colton with a makeup smudged face being chased by a three year old.

"Morning guys." I got a chorus of 'mornings' and 'heys' in return.

Everyone froze for moment as the smell of something burning hit our noses. My nose scrunched up in disgust.  Where the heck is that smell comi... oh shi- I mean poop. The pancakes. I totally forgot.

I turned on my heels and saw that the pan was clouded with smoke which was quickly rising. I cautiously grabbed the pan handle, careful not to burn myself and emptied the charcoal of a pancake. Mmm yummy. Note the sarcasm.
