Daddy’s Have and Mommy’s Have…

Something happened the other day and I was stuck between the emotions of hilarious and sad.

Maybe you can relate?

The other day Baby Bot was playing with his brand new piggy bank.  It took me a second to figure out why he was digging in his pockets, his sisters pockets and then my pockets.

“Oh, you are looking for money!” I exclaimed.

Baby Bot smiled and nodded and announced, “Daddy’s have money.”

Curiously I asked, ‘What do Mommy’s have?”

“Mommy’s have kleenex.” he answered.

I burst out laughing.  Yes, Mommy has kleenex, but Mommy also works and makes money.  So, his little world of innocence brought me joy but also confusion.  I want him to know that I work.  I want him to know that Mommy contributes to this family just as much as Daddy does.

But, he already knows that.

Baby Bot knows that when he needs his nose wiped, that his Mommy will always have his kleenex.

And I am okay with that.

  1. Look at it this way, when they’re teenagers they’ll still go to him for money and you for Kleenex. I kind of like that considering Barbies are cheaper than the iPhone10 circa 2018.

  2. oh, the darn things kids say. Come to think of it, he’s absolutely right – my husband does have money in his pockets…and I have chocolate!!! ha, i win!

  3. I always tell the kids that I’m going to work when I leave the house for PR events. I like to think they will realize my contributions even though I’m not the main bread winner here. I’m the one who gets them tickets to fun things! That counts too 🙂

  4. Moms have the Kleenex. LOL. Interesting how kids think. I kind of have this weird thing happening in our family where the kids will tell Dad Nope mom is in charge and she makes the rules (AND that’s not really cool either.) We all have some educating to do as they grow I guess. I try to remind them we are a partnership. And we all work together as a family.
