Mad Dad Skillz

The last 2.5 days Dad! has been in charge of all things Rito since Dad! is on holidays and poor Mamamama still has to work. I really thought a couple of nights with Rito getting up in the middle of the night and the ongoing temper tantrums would really make Dad! appreciate all that I do. 

Nope. Not at all. 


Because the men in this house are banding against me and Rito has been on his model super baby best behavior. For example: 
  • sleeping through the night
  • sleeping 8 hours and then getting up for a glass of milk and sleeping another 4
  • minimal temper tantrums
  • eating well
  • eating without spitting out his food
  • sitting nicely at the dinner table each night and eating what we eat

I would also like to point out that Dad! has also been on his best behaviour:
  • mowing the lawn
  • washing cars
  • changing oil
  • taking Mamamama out to dinner
  • cooking dinner
  • ordering pizza
  • taking care of all things Rito
  • taking care of all things BuddyLove

So now that I know my men are more then capable without me, it is going to 
bite Dad! in the ass because now I expect more from him.

Next time honey, do the laundry too, I am still drowning in it.

P.S. Dad! I think you are hot being all Daddy-in-charge, it almost makes 
my uterus hurt.

You're lucky! Josh is on "holiday," too -- and I feel like I'm doing MORE work than usual! But, he did do the laundry the other day.... :)

What the? Rito? Did I miss something there? Can Dad! come over and give beer-drinking, video-game-playing, football-watching dad a few pointers. And for that matter can Little Man come over and give tantrum-throwing, crying-for-no-apparent-reason, and napping-for-20-minutes baby some tips also.

LittleMan has been known as Rito to me since he was born, sometimes I slip up and use Rito, but since it is easier to type the LittleMan I think it is going to be a permanent change on here :)
