I read somewhere that men want to be told that they have big muscles. I hadn’t really thought much about it, as whether or not my man has big muscles has never mattered to me at all. I made a mental note to remember to comment on said big muscles. It was about then that I noticed my daughter Joy calling her dad, “You big huge honkin’ Daddy!” with much affection.
“So THAT’S why you want so many children.” I winked at him over supper, and we laughed.
Unfortunately, the same kind of comments hasn’t worked out well for me. Little Jason crawled in my lap, pointed to my belly and said, “You fat Mama.”
I laughed and then stopped short. My first thought was, “Please, oh please, don’t let him say that to anyone else.” But of course he will, so my next thought was, “When he says this to someone else, please, oh please let them be kind and forgiving!” Oh, the joys of being a parent!
