What did I do today?
I dragged your sleeping baby brother out of bed, so we could get you to school on time. No tardy slips allowed!
I braved Target with a six month old and a 3.5 year old to get your buddy a birthday gift. Can't go to a party without a present.
I woke up your sleeping brother (again, but this time only 15 minutes into his long awaited nap) so I could pick you up from school on time.
I made you orange smoothies for snack.
I took you and your brothers to karate. I wore your baby brother in the bjorn, and crossed my fingers that Evan would behave. He did not. I dragged a naughty boy off the mats while still holding a baby in my arms. I entertained them both so that you could learn your martial arts.
I drove you across town so you could get a hip new haircut at the cool salon that plays Spongebob while the stylist snips your hair.
I took the long way home so we could look at Christmas lights. I doubled back to allow you to see the giant tree your brother pointed out, which you missed and thus started balling about.
I made you hamburgers and tater tots for dinner while the baby screamed in the bouncy chair. I endured your insults about my cooking.
I called your friend's mom to arrange a play date at our house... again.
For that, did I get a hug? A kiss? A thank you?
However when daddy walked in the door at 6:30 announcing he had stopped at the library and checked out the latest disgusting Captain Underpants book, you flung yourself in his arms and declared that he was "The best daddy ever!"
Awesome. Just awesome.
