The difference between Mommy and Daddy
Mommies and Daddies are different. Daddy is always the first choice for wrestling. Mommy gives the best hugs.
Daddy sees this room as a mess. Mommy sees this as proof that the toys we bought are being put to good use.
Daddy was in charge of getting Munchkin Girl dressed the other day. This is what she ended up in. Notice tangled hair, the pants that are too short, and the green shirt with pink pants. I asked (in a nice voice) if that's what she was wearing. He replied, "What's wrong with it? It matches."
My personal favorite. Do you see the scissors in the bottom of the trash can? Keep in mind these aren't your standard issue scissors. These are sharp surgical scissors (Daddy is an orthopedic surgeon). Daddy sees this as a perfectly reasonable place to get rid of these. In a trash can without a lid in the bathroom where the kids constantly play. Mommy sees this as a perfectly resonable way for the kids to cut off each other's fingers.
At the end of a long day, Daddy popped open this beer for me and handed to me in a moment of pure chaos. Just when I think he can't get any dumber...he does something and totally redeems himself!!! (Anyone know what movie this is from??)
The truth is that we agree on this point. Beer is always welcome after a long day of fights, wrestling, crying, laughing, and hugs.
