We were in the car on our way home from gymnastics. The girls were complaining that they are missing daddy and tax season is soooo looooong..... I know, I feel the pain. But I try to acknowledge and move on, not downplay or linger, so...
"Girls, why don't we make a list of all the things we can about daddy that we miss when he isn't home?"
Here are some of the things they came up with, in no particular order, God's honest truth, all on their own. I will have to scrap this....
He makes the best hot cocoa
He remembers to sleep with a T-shirt on. (They hate to sneak in and snuggle a hairy chest!)
He is the best torturer!
He fixes things good. Well mostly. After he breaks them.
He is annoying.
He is a good snuggler.
He buys us candy.
He is fun.
He is the best daddy when he isn't torturing us.
He is good with animals. Except Miss Piggy. (our Guinea Pig) And sometimes Izzy and Rufus. (our dogs) But he loves them so the torture part doesn't count too much.
Its fun when he drives crazy as long as he doesn't hit other cars and get yelled at like that one time with the crazy lady.
He makes popcorn and lets us eat it on your (mommy's) side of the bed when you are away!
He does cold water torture when we are in the bath.
He is good at Math (I sure hope so!)
He plays the games on the menus when we go out to eat.
He doesn't have an itchy face.
He takes us to the movies and lets us eat candy even when mommy says no.
He says if he has to have girls, he is going to spoil them and that even means mommy. (I like that one particularly!)
I want to add something to this list myself.
He remembers to plug my phone in to charge at night after I go to bed.
He empties the dishwasher even when I don't ask him.
If I cook something and leave it out to cool, he wraps it up and puts it in the fridge when I forget about it.
And he is an awesome snuggler.
Hurry up, April 15th. We need our daddy back.
We love you.
