Daddy’s Day Hero Worship

August 27, 2013

How is that that even though I do all the grunt work, like wiping endless butt, snot and tears, Daddy is the one who gets the true hero status in the kid’s eyes?

Thankfully, Mister H is a bit of alright, otherwise this Daddy Worship business would probs get right up my nose!

In honor of the impending Daddy’s Day this weekend, I hopped on over to Woolworths Baby and Toddler Club to talk up Daddy’s and make a little special brunch to show him that we appreciate him.

I don’t know how it is in your house, but in my house, Daddy is a bit of a hero.

Even though I change a gazillion nappies, wipe endless snotty noses, and kiss grazed knees and bruised elbows aplenty, as soon as Daddy walks in the door, he’s Number One.

Lucky for my hubby, I think he’s pretty cool too, and more often than not I’m so relieved that the reinforcements have arrived that I feel like giving him a hero’s welcome.

My three-year-old son and I have a little game whereby we hear Daddy’s key in the door and my toddler quickly hides. I must admit, he’s not a very sophisticated hide-and-seeker, but in the name of good parenting we never let on that he’s as obvious as an elephant in a phone box.

    I love that Nick is coming into the age where he wants to do more and spend more time with daddy. It used to be he always wanted to be with me, but now that he’s 5, I think he values that “father figure” (well, father!) more, which is nice to see (plus gives me a bit of a break! ha!). I work Sundays, so father’s day will be a special breakfast I guess, then they have the day together 🙂

      Perfect! It would be better if someone made you breakfast before work, but maybe that’ll be the following Sunday? I’ll rally for you!

    I’m also a bit of chop liver as soon as dadda walks in the door but I LOVE it – means I’m not the only one there to do all the shit they ask of me. He is a total rockstar though and lucky otherwise I would get resentful too! He’ll get a sleep in – brekkie in bed, cuddles and no nappies to change all day – BOOM! x

      No nappies? That’s a very generous gift. You’re a nicer wife than I, Em, but I have suspected that for a while now.
