I love my husband! I love the time he spends with our daughter. I also love our daughter, and her demented sense of humor at 2.5 years. Its the greatest! This is a completely True Story that happened yesterday. The things that come out of her mouth amaze me sometimes. She has the vocabulary of at least a 10 year old because we have never used *baby* talk with her, and also, my kid is like mega smart! :)

My hubs is mad, cussing, ranting and tearing apart the mouse for the computer that we bought about 3 months ago and is now freezing up on us CONSTANTLY! (Logitech YOU SUCK!)

He has his screwdrivers out, his wire cutters, his electrical tape.

I'm watching him, Wondering when he will give up, but know if I say anything, (for example "Lets just go buy a new mouse!") he will become all cavemanish and pout about not being able to do his manly duty and *fix* the problem.

I turn to look at A who is getting mad because one of her toys is not working, she looks at her daddy, looks at her toy, looks back at her daddy, picks up her toy and takes it over to her daddy.

I'm expecting Husband to react in frustration at being interrupted in the middle of *fixing* his mouse.

"Daddy Can you PLEASE fix my toy? Its broke!"

(this toy)

Daddy looks up, the crazy "I can fix anything" look in his eyes still present. Shakes his head, the look is gone!

I'm amazed!

"Sure baby, what is wrong with it?"

"Its broke! This one door wont open! SEE?"

"Yep, I see! Lets take a look at it!"


He pulls said toy apart, taking time to let A *help* hold the screws that hold it together. Inside this toy we find part a necklace that I have never seen before (my sister gave us this toy so I'm thinking its hers). He starts putting this silly toy back together, A is still holding the 9 screws that go in the back.

"Can you help Daddy some more and put a screw right here in this hole?"


"Good job! How about putting one right here?"

"Sure, This is AMAZING!"

Her newest word is amazing and in this case I too am amazed! This is just the sweetest Daddy/Daughter moment ever! I'm capturing it in my mind to play it back over and over! My hormones are working overdrive and I'm attempting not to cry with happiness!

Then the moment passes...My silly funny daughter couldn't let this one pass

"Daddy's screwy, HAHAHA because of the screws! My toy is screwy!"

I lose it! Tears are rolling down my face, We are all cracking up! My silly funny girl!

In the end, The toy is fixed, and the mouse is *fixed*. I am amazed at my husband who always manages to do the unexpected when I least expect him too.

(our sad mouse!)

That's SO cute. My son is 2 1/2 and his vocabulary is not near that. We've never baby talked him, and he's very smart, but I guess it's true that boys develop slower than girls. I'm glad the toy and mouse got fixed. :)
