1 year, 7 months.
Throughout the day with you at the house, it is necessary for me to at least straighten up the house as we go along; from each activity you choose. This past week, you have been entertaining yourself in the meantime by taking it upon yourself to go get my shoes from the closet, carefully put them on, then walk around the kitchen in them.
And it’s not something you did just one time. Instead, this has now become a daily routine.
The moment you see me cleaning up the table after you had a messy breakfast consisting of yogurt and oatmeal, which you insist on feeding yourself with no help from Daddy, you quietly retreat to my shoes.
It’s funny because 10 minutes or so can pass, and the whole time, without me giving you confirmation of what you’re doing, I will look over the counter and catch you meticulously working to put my shoes on.
Once you’ve got them both on, you then make your way over to me, with such a cute little smile on your face.
I’m not sure you realize that we have such different sized feet- and therefore, that my shoes are ridiculously over-sized on you.
You figure that our whole family should just be able to share each other’s shoes; even though you have the tiniest feet in the house and I have the biggest.
It’s great that you are able to find such intriguing entertainment in wearing my shoes. I have to admit- you’re pretty easy to entertain.
Sure, you like your dolls and their baby stroller, but it’s like Daddy’s shoes are just as much fun!
You make my job as a stay-at-dad pretty easy. Not only can I get a little bit of housework done, but I also get free entertainment as well!
