“Mommy is the Mommy…that’s why you have to do what she says, and I do too” How is that for a ringing endorsement from my wonderful husband? As we battled our way through yet another dinner (“Delaney get back into your seat….yes, Delaney, you have to eat what everyone else is eating….no, you cannot go outside to play until you eat….) Jeff made sure 3 year old Delaney heard him loud and clear.
This was hours ago at this point and my smile hasn’t worn off.
The fabulous thing about tonight’s dinner was learning that I truly am THE MOMMY. Jeff said so, so it must be true.
I don’t always know what being ‘THE MOMMY’ entitles me to do, but tonight I was reminded of a few things: 1) Jeff’s got my back….its wonderful (kind of like being given a little crown to wear around…except no one can see it but me, Jeff and the kids) 2) Its fun being a team 3) Daddy is THE DADDY and that means you and I have to do what he says.
