Chris had a fever on Up All Night this week, and the only prescription was more babies!
"Baby Fever" explored yet another very real issue, that of a working mother deciding between pregnancy or progress in her workplace. Chris had every right to want to give Amy a sibling, but Reagan was also justified in her apprehension as she continued to cope with her new boss and the changes in her professional career.
Meanwhile, Ava showed she is capable of putting her life on hold to help nurture someone else's as she sought to mentor young Jamie. Jamie, though, was the very embodiment of the modern day teen and showed the daytime host that her mantra of "keep on growing" means many different things when it came to the younger generation. The writers did very well to depict the issues facing today's youth. Things such as one's mother not allowing The Hunger Games to be reading material and the acceptance of the popular girls in school may have seemed trivial to Ava, but for Jamie they were the world.
While Chris struggled to convince Reagan to have another child, she and Luke assumed the roles of siblings in a way, as they both competed for Yvonne's affection. Eve Best's scenes were brief but the hold she had on Reagan and Luke was palpable. It will be interesting to see who emerges as the favorite in their struggle for her favor.
Chris received advice from his hockey teammate in what was a very original scenario where two men discussed the manipulation of their wives in order to have another baby. That baby smell and the image of tiny socks are very real and make for a very persuasive formula.
When the day comes that they are ready for another child I have no doubt Reagan and Chis will be up to the task, but Reagan does have a right to make sure things at work are kosher before entering into what is a very tumultuous time.
