the oldest trick in the book

3 Jan

Baby is crying.  Daddy passes baby off to mommy so he can use the bathroom.

20 minutes pass.  Then 30.  Mommy notices daddy’s cell phone and book are nowhere to be seen.

Baby miraculously falls asleep after lots of bouncing, swaying, and singing.  Daddy emerges from bathroom, at which point he generously offers to give mommy a break.  Meanwhile, he is being praised far and wide as being progressive for knowing how to change a diaper.

I love my husband and I think he is a phenomenal partner and father (even during his half-hour escapes to the bathroom at choice times–let’s be honest, we can all use them).  Folks now need to make current their concept of fatherhood.
