Mommy, Mommy, Watch Me Twirl
Daddy! Daddy! Watch me twirl, says your kids for the 198th time in an hour. This is probably the 100th time your child has performed the same routine over and over again. The only thing you can do is fake a grin and feign awe at this marvelous routine and pretend it’s still as cute as it was when you first saw it.
This is a common occurrence on weekends when the kids don’t have school or daycare, so they get your attention all to themselves. It is not that it isn’t cute or funny that your cold has a new routine or something “cool” to show you. It’s the number of times you have to see it, and you could be finally catching up on your favorite series or book and probably have to drop your book or series countless times. To focus on a new exhibition for “mommy” or “daddy.”
