Happy Father’s Day – Some Assembly Required

Cookie:  Happy Father’s Day!

Me:  Thank-you.

Mommy: Cookie made you a card in art class, but we can’t find it.

Cookie:  It’s a scavenger hunt!  Here’s a hint, Daddy.  We already searched the living room.

Happy Father’s Day to Me

Cookie:  I have to go to the bathroom.

Me: After we’re done ordering.

Cookie:  Can you take me please?

Me: But .. ok.

***

Cookie: Carry my backpack please.

***

Cookie: I don’t want to use my scooter anymore.  Can you carry it?

***

Cookie:  I’m tired.  Can you carry me?

Me: But…

Cookie: Please?

Me:  Ok.

***

Cookie: I want Daddy to give me a bath tonight.

***

Cookie:  Daaaaaaady!  I finished pooping.  Come and wipe my butt please.

Me:  It’s Father’ Day.  Shouldn’t I get a rest?  Can’t Mommy do it?

Cookie:  But it’s Father’s Day!  I want Daddy to do it.

Me: [word deleted]… Ok.

 

And a happy Father’s Day it was.  I can’t move today (why do you never get tired or asked to be carried when you walk with just Mommy?), but I wouldn’t change a thing.
