|FOUR BLEEDING HEARTS|
The premier production of “Newly Weds and Tag Along Kids” consisted of four players, all-trying hard to find their roles in the family.
The newly married couple was in love and longed for privacy. But, with children around, there was little chance of that. It was a common occurrence to walk into the kitchen and find the lovebirds in an embrace or discover them nestled together on the couch in the living room.
Mom was trying to juggle an attentive new husband and her children. Poor Deryl, had not only gained a wife, but two unruly offspring. Despite the “tag along” kids, the new weds had eyes only for each other. It was obvious that they were crazy about one another, even though they were two completely different personalities. Mom was the leader of the two. She was more outgoing and assertive. Deryl was a passive, easy going individual; whose main purpose (it seemed to me) was to please Mom.
Then there were the tag along kids. Bronco, without a father’s discipline was becoming a handful. Nevertheless, at his green age of five years old, he molded more easily into the situation.
