I have an idea . . . let’s play squeeze my thighs! You know you want to. 🙂
I’m sorry about crashing your date with daddy the other night, but can you really say no to this face?
For reasons not related to date crashing, Micah spent most of yesterday staring at me from his portable bouncy chair. It’s not like I didn’t want to hold him, but you know how it is when you start one thing that leads to another, then another and all of a sudden one of your children is yelling “Daddy, let’s do this! The sun is running out!”
And you’re like, where did this day go? I’m still in my bathrobe!
In an effort to make up for my inattentiveness, I ran a warm bath and settled us in. While whispering a lullaby (which happens to be the only way my singing is bearable), I took his little feet in my hands and began to rub, working my way up his calves to his delightfully fat thighs. He kicked, cooed and hiccuped with delight at our new game, which ended in a full coconut oil rubdown on the bathroom floor before a deep nights sleep.
