Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Blah! Blah! Blah!




This is daddy helping me feed the billy goat. It was a beautiful Saturday and daddy suggested we go to the zoo. Then he helped me feed the billy goat leaves and not be scared. Then he bought me a $24 dollar drink just because it was in a cup that was the shape of a meerkat.



Mom wouldn't touch the billy goat. She said he had been touched by "millions of kids without proper parenting", whatever that means. Then she told daddy not to buy me my meerkat drink. But he just winked at me and did it anyway. Later I heard mommy tell him, "she'll be your problem to deal with when she's 16." Whatever that means.






This is me and my dad. My mom took this picture the other morning when she woke up to find us this way. He was supposed to put me back in my bed right after feeding me, but I wasn't too game on going back in my bed, and so I just hung out with him.


Mom told him that holding me while I fell asleep was "the beginning of the end," whatever that means. She also said I needed to learn to "self-soothe, self-soothe, self-soothe" like 400 times. But dad just held me tighter.







Hey y'all! This is me, on Saturday, when daddy was keeping me. He fixed me my favorite - a grilled cheese sandwich (in triangles of course), cut up apple slices and some juice. He then propped me up in his bed, placed a pillow behind my head and turned on some Max & Ruby.


Some may call me spoiled, but I'll be honest, that's just how my dad rolls.


When we heard the garage door open up and knew mom was home, dad said, "Move, Remi, move! You were supposed to be down for a nap 20 minutes ago!" Sheesh.
Mom just doesn't get us.



Which is unfortunate...because Rocco and I really treat her well when daddy's not around.

Everyone needs a dad like that! The photo of him sleeping with Rocco is precious. What a guy.

I LOVE this post! I cringe everytime I hear my husband give my daughter choices over the silliest things! They easily spend a half hour over what plate she'll eat her dinner off of! But watching them interact is a huge gift, and I agree when she is 16, he can deal with the drama! ;-)

Love the pictures! Rocco is getting sooo big!! Remi is precious as always! Oh, and are you SURE that was a billy goat? It looks awefully strange to me!

Rhonda said...

Love it!! Remi totally looks every bit like the princess she is. And Rocco is so handsome!!!

Glad to know that my husband and daughter aren't the only ones determined to undermine my authority.

Oh how sweet is that Daddy? I love the picture of Rocco and him sleeping. Too sweet. And Remi with her breakfast in your bed is wonderful.

Melissa! That was fabulous! Did you sleep? You sound all rested. Does the AG pamper you like that? Good golly, Woman. Don't ever let him go. AND he's helping with the kids?

We are so glad the AG made you blog. Now could you do us a favor and make HIM write a blog or a book or a pamphlet on pampering the girls? I could sure use an orange pillow and some grilled cheese triangles. Maybe I'll print Remi's picture and leave it lying on hubby's desk...

Sweet! A post on the kiddos, as requested :) I love the pics! They are too cute for words! That's a good A.G.- even if he's only creating havoc for you!

Just FYI, it doesn't get any better sister. My kids cry and throw fits when their daddy leaves and all I hear from the moment they get home from school is "when is daddy coming home?" This wouldn't be so bad if when I leave I didn't have to BEG them to say goodby to me. No one ever asks where I am going or when I will be back. Sometimes they even ask when I am going out next! Something is very wrong with that. But then again, how awesome to have that kind of daddy! :) Cute pics!

Love the photo of you with stickers! Reminds me of an evening that I had a meeting and when I came home my husband had make-up on and his very thin hair done up in a pony tail on top of his head!He sat there with a straight face talking to me for the longest time until I asked him about it. He'd forgotten the "beauty shop" session he and my daughter had had earlier...good times!
