Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Every day I’ll list three things that may, or may not, be related. The challenge is to simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you, using one, two or all three words in your post. There are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use the 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and the logo if you wish.

Thomas and Ginny were sitting in their favorite place the hammock. Little Anthony was playing on the ground in front of them. He was trying to throw his ball higher and higher. His chubby little legs taking him after it each time it went a lit bit further away.
Ginny asked, “Who’s that lady coming into the yard?”
Thomas glanced over and said, “That is my Aunt Mary. She is supposed to come help watch the kids when Mom goes to the hospital to have the baby. “I wonder what she is doing here now, unless Mom is ready to go to the hospital.” Thomas got up and headed over to his Aunt.
“Is it time now Aunt Mary?” He asked with panic in his voice. As many times as he has gone through this he still got nervous.
“Thomas, you need to relax. You know your Mom knows what she is doing. She could do this with out a doctor she’s done it so many times.” Aunt Mary pointedly looks at Ginny with a questioning look. “Who do we have here, Thomas?”
“Oh, sorry, Aunt Mary, this is Ginny Carpenter, my girlfriend.”
“Well, Thomas it looks like you have the perfect young lady here. Little Anthony seems quite taken with her. He’s clinging to her as if she’s going to leave him.”
“Anthony has fallen in love with her, just like I have. He always wants to sit with her and have her snuggle with him when it is nap time. He’s become quite attached to her.”
“Well, young lady, if Anthony thinks you are a keeper, than you must be. Thomas is a lucky young man. And Anthony doesn’t just like everyone. He doesn’t like my other sister. She’s the baby of our family, but Anthony doesn’t want anything to do with her. Well, let me go get your mother and father so we can get these two little ones out of their nice safe cocoon and into the craziness of this family.”
