The other morning, we were attempting to get all five kids out the door. Rick froze for a minute, not sure what to tackle next.
I said to him, “All kids are dressed and sunscreened. Those two bags don’t go with us but we need the brown bag. Dylan is right there getting a drink of water. Summer is already in the car. I’m changing the baby. You take Chase and Harlowe to the bathroom and get on their shoes.”
With a refocused purpose, Rick got moving again.
Shortly after, Dylan said to me, “You know sometimes it seems like daddy doesn’t know what to do next.”
“Well, it is a lot to get this family anywhere. And Daddy and I have different skills. I’m just a little better at knowing everything we need to do before we leave the house. Daddy is better at other stuff and he takes care of those things.”
“Oh I get it,” Dylan said. “Like rhyming. He’s really good at rhyming.”
“Yes, daddy totally handles all the rhyming.”
By the way, when he isn’t rhyming, he’s doing the news. Here’s Rick’s most recent promo. After you watch it, you will think two things:
1. Damn you Rick and your super photogenic abilities.
2. Finally, Kelcey gets a little recognition for something other than breastfeeding at the grocery store.
