No Papa

Frankie's most popular phrase these days is "no Papa". Mom gets stuck with a lot of stuff because she won't let me do much (diapers, reading to her, etc.). I've never been a distant Papa in anyway so this is kind of surprising.

Anyway, in an attempt to break this "habit", tonight is the first in a series of Thursday night Frankie and Papa outings. Dinner at Wendy's and a little frolicking at the "Big Park". That's the park behind Whetstone library. Wish me luck.

Update: A wildly successful night was had by the Frankster and myself. A luxurious half hour dinner at Wendy's followed by an assault on Big Park. After a bath, she went to sleep in about 5 minutes, although she still wanted Mom to read to her at bedtime. That's fine.

You know I think it's a stage that 2 1/2 year olds go through. Mine (same age as your daughter) constantly goes back and forth between what he wants me to do and what he wants my husband to do.

I'm glad to hear your night out was a success. (And it's even better when you can come home and they are out like a light in no time flat! LOL)

I heard their allegiance changes daily at that age but it hasn't been the case. When we're by ourselves, she let me do all the stuff she usually lets Mom do and no bad behavior. But when both of us are around, she chants "no papa" a little too often. Probably not worth worrying about. We're not smart enough to figure them out I'm afraid.

This is so true. Sometimes I really do wish they came with manuals like cars. LOL

Thanks...sometimes I think I'm nuts for having another. But it will all work out. Even if I'll be exhausted for the next 4 years LOL.
