I was trying to work on a chocolate frosting for some organic brownies I was making (they were EXCELLENT! and no junk in them, not even soy! :) ). I was stirring so I couldn’t hold Dolores (and being selfish for not just putting her in the mei tai). She started crying and I was telling her that I’d be there as soon as I was done. Paul got off the counter, went over to her and started rubbing her tummy. The conversation we had:
P – I’m trying to calm her down
me – thank you Paul
P – I covering her, she’s cold
me – thank you Paul, can you sit next to her, maybe she’s lonely?
P – okay (and he goes and sits next to her, and starts rubbing her tummy, she stopped crying when he had first gone over to her)
He then gives her a kiss
me – aw, did you give her a kiss? That was nice of you.
P – yes, I kiss her, trying to calm her down. I going to get my dump truck for her to hold
me – she might like that (she starts fussing when he gets up)
me – I think she would rather you sit with her (me not knowing that she had straightened her legs out)
P - (he goes back to sit next to her and she starts screaming loudly, he gets down and covers his ears) She’s scream her head off.
me – (I go to check her and realize that he had sat on her legs, and pick her up).
It was super cute. I didn’t even ask him to go to her, he just did. Giving her a kiss was the best!
He was very happy with the brownies too! I’m so glad to have found some brownies/cake mixes that are just like I’d make at home! Sometimes I just like the quick way, and now I don’t have to feel guilty feeding Paul junk!
