More Fun with Daddy

Sometimes I really don't know how Stan comes up with some of the things he does to keep the kids entertained while I am cleaning up the dinner dishes. Maybe it comes from being in an office all day long and the energy and comes out when he is around the kids.

This is Tyson in a pillowcase. Both he and Emma love being what Stan calls a sack of potatoes. Emma is too big for the pillowcase so she gets to ride in a blanket. Stan slings them over his shoulder and walks around the room with his sack of potatoes and the kids cannot stop laughing. It is really cute but I pray the bottom of the pillowcase does not give out. (At least it is a home-made one and there is no seam at the bottom.) Stan started this with Emma and once Tyson saw how fun it is he screams "Tyson's turn!!!!" until he gets his turn.


The other fun think that Dad and Emma do it Stan will "throw" Emma on the couch. Here are a sequence of the process. I do not like this one. For one think I consider this 'throwing' jumping on my new couches. Plus I worry about Emma hitting the couch too hard and bitting her toung or something like that. She loves it though and Stan assures me that it is perfectly safe and it won't hurt the couches. Well, we'll see. At least they have fun with dad.

I wonder if all dads do crazy stuff like this, while all moms cringe and close their eyes? But the kids themselves love it!!

Isn't everything dad's do with their kids "perfectly safe?" Right until someone gets hurt. That sure looks fun though.

I think the dads enjoy performing semi-dangerous stunts with their kids as much as the kids do. I guess it's a good thing we rational creatures are around to keep everyone safe. It does seriously look like fun for the kids though.

Those "throwing" pictures give me anxiety! Daddy time is the best though. :)
