My husband has been working a lot of overtime recently, partly do the crazy weather and to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, so my kids are use to it being just me at the house to cater to their daily needs. So when he was actually home all weekend I thought I would get a to relax a little bit and he could take over. My little ones had other plans.
Here are a few things that over the weekend the kids said “No Daddy Only mommy can do…..
Only mommy can build my Lego house just right.
Only mommy can make my waffles, and make his toast,and her breakfast muffins because it’s Sunday morning why would we all want to eat the same for breakfast
No daddy only mommy can go to the bathroom and sit in the floor while I poop in the potty so I’m not alone (with two boys potty training I spent hours in the bathroom floor this weekend)
Only mommy can fix my hair, I won’t like it but only she can fix it
Only mommy can watch the YouTube video that sings Zombie Arms because I have to watch it and dance at least 100 times a day
Only mommy lets my finish off her coffee (after I’ve stuck my fingers in it)
Only mommy slips me a piece of chocolate if I promise to eat all of my lunch
Only mommy can sing my Jesus songs with me at night cause her voice is sometimes kind of pretty
Only mommy can take me to bed cause if she sings with diva she needs to sing the ABC song “frontwards and backwards” with me
Only mommy can yell at the Packers while they play ball daddy
Only mommy can read me my book with holding my baby sister and making dinner because I have to hear the story right then
Only mommy can rock me to sleep
Only mommy can kiss my boo boo better you can try daddy but it’s not the same
Only mommy can get up with Elmo at 430, big Al at 530 and manage not to need a nap
Only mommy can stay calm while we run crazy playing cowboys and dinosaur hunters with inside the house because it’s to wet to play outside
Only mommy can push me in the swing cause she does silly rhymes while she pushes me up up up
Only mommy can build the bestest living room forts
Only mommy can help me with homework I forgot about until 20 minutes before bed on Sunday night
Only mommy can cover our faces in kisses cause she says she will miss this chaos when we grow up
There are so many things that go on throughout our days here, it’s nice to know there are a few things that the kids seem to think no one else can do. My husband is a terrific dad and he spends his fair share of time doing things with the kids, but on weekends like this one it’s nice to know they still love their momma and still think only mommy can on a few things.
Taking a nothing special weekend and making beautiful memories. I call that success.
