And Ma Makes Three (#3.20)
20 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sophia lost her good friend and is hanging on to Dorothy because she is lonely. Dorothy is dating at the time but Sophia follows them on every date and it makes the guy Dorothy is dating unhappy. Dorothy suggests going to Bahamas together but Sophia hears it and wants to go as well. Dorothy knows it is not an option and decides to stay with her mother for her not to be lonely, but Sophia goes with her new friends to Cancun.

A sweet episode with a lot of humor. It has funny moments such as Dorothy promises her date to have Sophia keep her teeth in her mouth when she picks them. And one feels bad for Sophia but luckily she gets herself back and is happy at the end.
