B Daddy & E
I've come to realize and appreciate as of late that B Daddy parents differently than I do.
Not better. Not worse. Differently.
It's quite often a struggle for me to remember this. Differently Katie - differently.
Now naturally the way that I bathe Little E is the most efficient way to bathe a child and the way that I wake him up in the morning is the way that delights him most - but a father needs quality time too and the occasional book read in the wrong accent won't set him too far back in school I suppose.
But when it comes to playtime, B Daddy has me beat hands down. I love watching B play with his little boy.
Out hiking last weekend, we stopped for lunch about three miles into our trek. I promptly collapsed in a sweaty heap and told the boys to wake me when my break was over.
B on the other hand played this game for a good fifteen minutes just to make the little man smile.
