The Tale of a Lover's Quarrel

Many of you know that Luke is quite smitten with Cate Taylor. They've probably seen each other nearly every day for the last year. Nowadays they stroll together in a double stroller so that Norah can use the single stroller and we can all still walk together. Kristin and I were amazed at how well Luke and Cate strolled together, and how patient Cate is with Luke's tormenting ways. Most days they are very sweet with one another, and Kristin has been known to say the kids practically make out in front of us. Other days are not so good. Like last Monday. Here's Luke's side of the story when asked:
Luke: "hit...cup"
Momma: "Then what happened?"
Luke: "mad"
Momma: "What did Cate do when she was mad?"
Luke: "bite Cate"
Translation: Luke hit Cate with his cup one too many times, she got mad, and bit him.
I looked down to notice teeth marks on his arm, but I think his feelings were more hurt than anything. His girl had lashed back for once. And I'm sure it won't be the last time!
