7 QTs - Fathers Day Edition

Here's to Papa… Reasons why the girls and I love Papa and other thoughts

--- 1 ---

I love that after at 13.5 hr work day first stop is to check to see if the girls are asleep (and they are not) and give them a squeeze and a kiss goodnight. When he is not not home when we do our night time prayers I tell E and R they have to pray extra hard for Papa (and actually they are halfway more attentive). Then we have family squeeze except without Papa. Friday E said she "really needed a Papa squeeze" so we did a pretend Papa squeeze. I'm just glad she really got one when he got home.

For an early Father's Day… Papa took both E and R to breakfast. First he was only going to take E but I reminded him it really was R's turn to go somewhere special with him so instead he just took both!

Then he headed out for a half day of work and then he and E mowed the grass before we all went to dinner. Yup. All of us. To a nice restaurant. Not white tablecloths nice, but we got dressed up anyway just for Papa. The girls had surprisingly excellent behavior.

Both Lee and my dad have this fantastic ability to make me laugh.

{while he's holding M}

Lee - Alright Chicky what's your plan
Me - {continue doing what I'm doing in kitchen}
Lee - What about M?
Me - What about her?
Lee - What am I supposed to do with her?
Me - Keep on holding her
Lee - I cannot do anything when I'm holding her
Me- Okay, now you know what it is like
Lee - No it's different
Me - How?
Lee - You have those Chicky abilities
Me - {raised eyebrow; M is relegated to the swing}
Lee- I going to make some tea... and have a few cookies. That's very English of me

{while rocking/talking/singing to M}

Lee - Par-rum-it-dum-dum me and my baby
Lee - I'm a little baby short and stout 
Lee - M when are you going to grow some hair? You just have a fuzzy head now. We could call you Fuzzy.
M - {let's out a cry}
Lee - What is it? You don't want to be fuzzy?
Lee - Chicky! M needs her mama...
