Things I learn from my daddy...
1.A love for football and the Missouri Tigers: the girl will watch football for hours and if basketball is on, tells you she likes football better!
2. Tickling! Watch out if you are on the floor...Brooke will come up to you and say, "I tickle you" (especially feet)..wonder where she got that?!?
3. Salsa: I gave her some pretzels the other day and was told, "I need salsa!" Who eats salsa and pretzels? Apparently Jason and Brooke do!
4. Right and Left: the other day in the bath, Brooke was playing and put her cup over her hand. She looked up at me and said all nonchalantly,"it's on my right hand!" I said, what? and she repeated it, so I asked her, what is this? "my left" (with the tone of voice, duh, mom!) Apparently, Jason has been telling her left arm, right arm, left leg, right leg as he gets her dressed...and so now she knows her right from left!
5. Red light, Green light: Jason has the duty of picking up/dropping off from day care. In the many short trips they take, he has taught her with the stop lights that red means stop and green means go!
I am always grateful and thankful for everything Jason does for Brooke and me ...he is as much her caregiver as I am (if not more some days, because of my schedule :( But he is so much more than that, and these things that she has learned from him (minus the salsa and tickling) just re-iterated to me what a special daddy he is!
