Daddy Roller Coasters

Daddy is better than Disneyland.

The wild swirling, twirling up in the sky, twisting all around and turning until sick types of play is what makes Will the best daddy in the world in the eyes of Gracie and Annelie.

Practical and precautious me usually freaks out and hovers around, shouting, "Watch her head,"

"She just finished eating! Don't make her sick!"

"She's too high, she'll get scared!"

But of course, Will just ignores me and swings her higher.

Do the girls mind? Not one bit.

And when I see the fun, the laughter, the big eyes wide with excitement only Daddy can create, I have to turn a blind eye to the messy-looking laundry pile (clean, of course) and the laundry basket now filled with two wildly laughing little girls.

Yes, I hope Will is going to put the laundry back in the basket when they are done playing (or better yet, help me fold it and put it away).

Of course I know that he wont (guys just don't seem to think like that, do they?).

Sometimes, you just gotta ignore the mess and enjoy the laughter because, while dance parties, tea parties and cookie baking belong to me, rough-housing, rugby, and roller coasters are all for Daddy.

And that is what makes Daddy so special.

That's adorable! My husband did that with our daughter, too, with the laundry basket. At 9 years old, she doesn't fit anymore!

Your girls are so adorable! Their fun with Daddy reminds me of how my DH plays with my boys. I have to look away!

How cute your girls are! I remember those days of panic when the kids were getting tossed around by daddy. When they got older the wrestling started and I had to worry about the kids and my glass coffee and end tables!

Tori, Jessie, Ria, and Kitty Kat said...

So fun. I'm glad you're able to enjoy your husband's antics and not get upset about the upended laundry! :)

This post & these pics made me smile. So funny how the fathers all do the same things & the mothers all say the same things! We had those days too but now they're 7 & 10 yrs old & we have bad backs!

Ah your girls are so precious. My husband still whirls youngest around and he's 3 1/2! His big ol' body being tossed around and I'm still like, "Watch out!" LOL

This reminds me so much of my husband and my daughter playing together.

Moments like these priceless! Enjoy them - the laundry can always wait. And if not, there's always Wal-Mart for clean undies...
