This whole week Gadget-daddy was with us.
It was great as the boys got a lot of time with him. Now Max wants daddy to brush his teeth and night and not Mommy.
When it comes to brushing teeth before bedtime, Max would say, "Koh-koh first"
Then after I had finished with Micah, Max would then say, "I want Daddy. I want Daddy to brush for me."
(Ahh... one little job redirected to Daddy. :D)
Of course the better part and those that made a big difference was also that the boys got to go to the park some of the evenings when it was not raining. The mornings were also great: Gadget-daddy drove Micah to school, then he gets off to his office and Mommy spends the rest of the morning with Max until it was time to pick up Micah from school. Only once did we go home with out Gadget-daddy as he had some people to see in the office till later.
(We should have made some luncheon plans with friends working near his office, like you, Ann, but Gadget-daddy usually have to rush back to be on a conference call.)
Of course, with Gadget-daddy driving, Grandma stayed home in the mornings and did her own things. She must be relived too.
The only things was when Gadget-daddy when to refill the petrol yesterday, he realised the car was performing badly. I teased and said it must be the way he drives as he was driving us around the whole week. Then we remembered that the day before that he discovered that the tires were a little out of air. That had caused more friction, requiring more gas to go. I for one am glad he was driving this week. I doubt that I would have noticed it and thought something wrong with the engine.
This coming week Gadget-daddy will be off again. We will all miss him very much.
