I’m pretty sure there should be more dialogue between both partners when adopting a child…
WALTER: We should find someone else to look after her!
WALTER: We are not ready for this very loud kit!
WALTER: Tess, my darling…
WALTER: So you see, your mother was very enthusiastic about keeping the little Belfry. We had many talks. But I did come around. Obviously.
WALTER: She was our one and only, our pride and joy, until you came along, Briushka.
Now we have two prides!
Briar: Aww, Papochka/Daddy…
WALTER: So I say, Tess understands. She has other reasons to dispute. But they will work it out. They have the same personality
BRIAR: Okay, Okay I get it.
