Who has time for hugs when they're busy fighting fires, driving an ambulance, and rocketing off to Mars? This little boy and his sister pretend to be all kinds of heroes—but they won't take a break to give Mom a hug. She reminds them that even firefighters hug their moms, but it's beginning to look like she will never get a cuddle!
