“Tina,” Bette playfully swats at her daughter as she stands up and laughs heartily, “Angie is SOOOOOOOO well behaved when you’re here. You have to stay.”
“Well, we have two weeks.” Tina smiles back up at Bette. “Let’s make the most of it.”
“Hey, let’s snap a selfie.” Angie proposes, reaching for her phone on the night stand. “Mom, you take it. You have such long arms.”
“Oh my god.” Tina bursts out laughing at what Angie just said. “You’re so right.”
Angie joins in laughing as well.
“Hey, “Bette frowns at them both as she looks down at her still well -toned arms. “What’s wrong with my arms?”
“Oh Bette. Nothing.” Tina has tears in her eyes as she continues to laugh. “Angie’s just teasing you since you’re so tall and you can reach everything that we can’t.”
“Well both of you will pay for that.” Bette grins as she attacks both her girls with another bout of tickling. This time Bette aims for Tina.
“Bette, stop.” Tina‘s laughing, swatting at Bette’s hands as they try to poke her body. “No, don’t.”
“Mama,” Angie calls over to Tina, “Get Mom when I hold her arms.”
“Hey,” Bette laughs playfully. “I can still take you two. Remember, I have long arms.”
More teasing, poking and laughter followed from the three ladies. They all ended up on the bed, twisting and turning. It was some time before the selfie ever got taken of the Porter/Kennards.
Before the Speech
It was great that Bette had the opportunity to take a break from the stress of the day and spend some quality time with Tina and Angie. It was good just to laugh and relax if only for a short time.
Over the years, they had made a commitment to spend one night a week together to just catch up with the other and what was going on in their lives. Angie was always at the center of their activities. So it became a loved tradition. This family time was easier to execute the first few years in NYC as Angie was in elementary school and Bette her primary caregiver since for the most part, Bette worked from home. Bette usually made the plans and coordinated what evening would be designated according to Tina’s work schedule. As Angie grew older and Bette went back to work full time and Tina became more involved in her demanding position with Focus Features, their special night didn’t always happen and they became less frequent. Either Tina or Bette couldn’t make it that particular evening and that week was skipped. Then another and another. Finally, the special evenings together just stopped.
