daddy dearest

i've got to give credit where credit is due. my hubby is a damn good daddy. the best thing is, is that it's like it just comes naturally to him. he doesn't try, he just does. for example, this past weekend we spent at the lake (as usual). all of the family were there with a couple of guests. well friday night, the boys stay out drinking on the back porch till 3 in the morning. they were loud, drunk, and rowdy. they ragged each other all night until some ended up in the lake with their khakis and polos on. just being typical boys.so long story short, the mabster wakes up at 4am and wants her daddy. jay of course was still beyond drunk, but without hesitation, picks her up, and stumbles to the den. he lays her on the loveseat as he lies beneath her on the cold hard floor (both of the other 2 couches were occupied by the other 2 drunks). they watch tv till she falls back asleep, and then he put her back in her crib.

saturday night was the same deal minus drunk daddy. but again, he slept on the cold hard floor for the mabster till she fell asleep. i think he got a total of 4 hours of sleep throughout the whole weekend. i couldn't help but wake up throughout the night just to peek at them. it was the sweetest thing, and it really made me love and appreciate how great of a hubby and daddy jay is. i don't usually like to brag about how great i think he is because i know every woman thinks theirs is the best. but i'll be honest, i don't think god could have made a better man for me and the mabster. i am just waiting for someone to wake me up, and tell me that this is not my life. it's just too good to be true.

LOL - my hubby said Mabster is VERY lucky. He would not have been up. "There goes Kimtastic - scrapbooking again." rotflol classic.
