Oh my. I fear that
Joe we are going to have our hands full with this hot mess. Let me preface this story by saying that I did not grow up living with my father. My parents divorced when I was about 2 and I never had to deal with the drama of a dad sitting your boyfriend down and having the "be good to my daughter or I will kill you" chat. In fact my dad did not even live in the same state so I could have been dating Charles Manson and not only would he have not known but there was not much he could do about it.
Fast forward 20 years and I have given birth to myself. Joe just told me a few days ago that our daughter is just like me. No patience, demanding and mouthy. In other words, she is perfect.
Imagine his horror when Mallory decided that her new favorite thing to do this week is take her pants off and shake her butt. Not only does she enjoy doing this but she enjoys TELLING you she is doing this. She also prefers to do it to her daddy.....as in "hey daddy, watch, I'm shaking my my butt"
I wish I could get this on video but I am not interested in getting arrested so you will just have to use your imagination here. Imagine 23 pounds of little girl bending her knees and looking like she is doing the chicken dance.
Joe tries so hard not to laugh but you really can't help it it is just THAT funny. Last night may have been the best rendition of dance party USA yet. On our way up to bed (she already has no pants on because we have to put a pull up on her for bedtime and they are in her room) our little Pussy Cat Doll stopped, put her hands on the wall shook her butt in the direction of her daddy and said "Look daddy.....I'm shakin my butt" That's right baby girl. Drop it like it's hot.
I try to
make fun of him be helpful in situations that stress my husband out so I just said "aww, look honey.....just like her mommy was doing at that bar in Philly over the weekend.....only I had my pants on"
I fear for her future boyfriends.
