Wonderful Mommy and Daddy Bonus
My wife is very wonderful. There are so many wonderful things about her that I couldn't possibly list them all here so I won't. All those wonderful things make her worth any wait, and I spend a good deal of time waiting.
As an added bonus, as if all the WONDERFUL wasn't already enough, she has some cute little phrases to ease the wait like: "just a second", "I'll just finish this real quick before...", and my favorite, "I'm just going to take a quick shower". Yeah, her shower is only limited by hot water availability.
Lucky for Avyrlie, I get to take her to dance class most weeks so she can get there 5 minutes ahead. Those 5 are some of her favorite minutes of the entire class. She runs and dances and sings and spins and jumps IN TAP SHOES. She would wear tap shoes everywhere if she could get away with it. In fact, I doubt it has even occurred to her to ask because she assumes they can only worn for dance.
If she put her foot down and were stubborn about it in the morning I'm sure she could get mom to cave. It's not uncommon to pick her up from daycare and find her in pajamas because she didn't want to change that morning.
'Let's me have my way if I'm stubborn enough' is on Avyrlie's list of wonderful things about mom ;)
