When Daddy is in Charge

Posted By Petia Mitchell On June 13, 2013 @ 10:01 pm In Featured,Holiday | No Comments

A couple of years ago, the new economic reality dictated that my husband becomes a SAHD (stay at home dad). Daddy-hood was not easy at first. It got easier with time.

Being who I am, I was always a little jealous of all the time my kids get to spend with their dad instead of me, and also always wondered what really goes on when daddy is in charge… I had the chance to ‘peek in’ a couple of weeks ago, and this is what I saw:

1. When daddy is in charge, a seemingly ordinary everyday school pickup becomes the time to share schoolyard stories, struggles & triumphs.

2. When daddy is in charge, shoulder rides are the norm.

3. When daddy is in charge, flying kites on a windy day after school is not out of the question.

4. When daddy is in charge, after school snacks are home made & yummy.

5. When daddy is in charge, discussing how a Lima bean grows is the stuff of life.

6. When daddy is in charge, HE IS the jungle gym.

7. When daddy is in charge, reading Beauty & the Beast while wearing princess tiaras is totally normal, and in fact essential.

8. When daddy is in charge, brushing hair with utmost care & patience is required.

9. When daddy is in charge, watching cartoons piled up on the bed is such a daddy thing to do!!!

10. When daddy is in charge, his hand is always available to hold (and always will be).

I can’t help but think how fortunate our kids are to have Daddy be in charge every day.
