Touché

posted by Momo Fali on December 10, 2008

The other day, I was snuggling with my little boy when I asked, “Who’s your favorite person?”

He hugged me and said, “You and Daddy both.”

I tickled him a little and teased, “Both? But I’m the one who feeds you, cleans up after you, does your laundry, drives you to therapy and school, reads with you, helps you with homework, and tucks you in bed.”

He replied, “Yeah, but Daddy throws me in the air.”

    sounds like you need to start tossing him, then you might win 🙂

  • Rhea


    damn dads. They have it so easy.

  • carrie


    It’s just not fair is it?

  • kaila


    There is that, isn’t there? It’s a favorite thing for little guys – and they don’t grow out of it for awhile.

  • worldmomma


    Your son is hilarious, a very bright little boy.

  • Lisa@verybusymomwith4


    He does have a point.

  • Irish Gumbo


    Oh, snap!

    Was that the point at which you hung him upside down by his ankles, dangling out the window? (grin)

    The lads, they like the thrills. A grilled cheese sandwich finds it hard to compete with the feeling of flying!

    Still, you KNOW he loves you. Who’s he going to come to after his first breakup? YOU. Boys always need the moms…

  • AlisonH


    Out of the mouths of boys.

  • Rachel


    hee heee heeee 😉

    That’s hysterical. Don’t worry, someday you’ll be way better than daddy 🙂

  • Ed (zoesdad)


    I might have given him a toss just then!

  • Melissa


    I love your little ones priorities…being thrown in the air is important stuff you know!

  • Pand0ra Wilde


    I guess nothing beats a good sling into the air? I would think food would rank higher, but what do I know? I’m afraid of heights.

  • Mr Lady


    He makes a valid point, you know.

  • Twenty Four At Heart


    Briefcase travels for business all the time. I’ve pretty much raised all 3 of our kids on my own. But when he does come home? He’s the “fun” parent. Resented it ever? Who ME???

  • the planet of janet


    he’s TOTALLY got a point….

  • LiteralDan


    I’m not going to deny that at certain stages of childhood, it’s way easier being a dad.

    Sorry, ladies.

  • Misty


    ADORABLE!

  • Rikki


    And why is there first word always “dada”. Its BS.

  • Tom


    Daddies don’t have to do much, do they?

  • Mrs. Schmitty


    LOl….he’s got you there!

  • Mama Dawg


    To a kid, that’s perfectly even.

  • Weaselmomma


    No way us Mom’s can compete with throwing them up in the air.

  • Big Bad Daddy


    But you don’t hear him saying “do the laundry again!” “do the laundry again!” “do the laundry again!” “again,again,again!” So you know, think about that. Oh, and I do all of the other stuff on your list too. Just Sayin’. But you’re right, it doesn’t take much to own their affection.

  • SherE1


    LOL-ing @ Big Bad Daddy’s comment!! Hilarious!! And so UNFAIR…. Spinning them in circles doesn’t get kudos approximate to throwing in the air??

  • Heather


    Ah, the simple things in life…

  • Xbox4NappyRash


    I pronounce that Tushy, just for fun.

  • Tara R.


    Well… there is that.

  • A Buns Life


    Yep, that sure is a toss up! 🙂

  • Alli {Mrs. Fussypants}


    lol!!!!

  • Jaina


    And being thrown in the air is quite important and fun.

  • BOSSY


    Ah, totally understandable.

  • holly


    that’s the same reason i love my uncle ray.

  • Kimmylyn


    We are never fully appreciated are we?? 🙂

  • Jamie E


    That sounds about right….:)

  • Aunt Debbi/kurts mom


    Love it.

  • mammadawg.com


    lol – but NOW you know how to tip the scales…! 😉

  • Jenna Consolo


    It’s all relative, isn’t it?

  • Captain Dumbass


    And we do it right before bedtime as well.

  • musing


    It’s hard to compete with that.

  • Surfer Jay


    Doh!

  • meleah rebeccah


    Awwwww…

    But, um…I think Daddy has it pretty easy over there!

  • Jared


    Taking a mental note…more tossing, more tossing. 😀

  • Colleen - Mommy Always Wins


    Ha ha ha…just catching up in my reader. At least you can still laugh about it, right? 😉
