Isn’t that adorable? Picturesque even.
A Dad reading to his kids, it’s priceless
especially because that’s uninterrupted blogging time for me a picture in time that I will keep in my heart forever.
Apparently for Monkey, it was a one time deal.
After dinner tonight Nathan said to me, “I’ll take the little one, you take the big one” meaning he’d read to Monkey and I’d read to Princess
Not a minute after I hear Nathan say “Monkey”… into the kitchen tears a sobbing Monkey and an exasperated Hubby.
So, I ask: “What’s wrong?”
Monkey: “Mo-sob-mma wead me sob“
Me: “Let Daddy read to you tonight.”
Monkey: “Noooooooooooooooooo, mommy wead me”
This went on for a couple of minutes.
Nathan let out a sigh that was part frustration and part disappointment, and took off down the hall to shower.
I ended up reading to both kiddos and then tucking them in.
A part of me says “Yay! Monkey loves me and wants me!” and it warms my heart and makes me want to chalk one up on the mommy board, but at the expense of a piece of my husband’s heart… not a chance.
So I’ll leave that mark on the table and go cuddle with my hubby and let him know that he’s still my number one guy.
On a happy note, Monkey has been sleeping in his vroom vroom bed for two whole weeks now! Success!
