Give Me a Second

As usual, my daughter made me laugh yesterday. She said something so funny I had to write it down, just so I could share it with all of you. That’s just the kind of guy I am.

Yesterday my wife had another appointment with the OBGYN to make sure she and the baby are doing OK. Everything went well with that. We even got to hear the heartbeat. It was healthy and strong. Unfortunately, because the appointment was at 4:30, my daughter was napping when we heard the heartbeat. I tried to wake her, but she was OUT. I felt a little bad, because she had brought one of her dolls with her to have the doctor listen to the doll’s heartbeat. I told her when she woke up that the doctor listened to the doll and she was fine.

Now to the fun part of the story. So, my daughter napped super late, finally waking at 7:00 PM. I had saved dinner (ham and scalloped potatoes) for her and was preparing it for her when she brought over the loaf of bread and asked me for butter bread. Here how the rest of the conversation went:

“I need some butter on my bread Daddy,”

“Just give me a second,” I said. “I’m cutting your meat.”

A few moments pass and then she says, “Can I have some butter?”

“Just give me one more second,” I said.

We go about back and forth a few more times and then, getting a little frustrated I say, “Just give me one more second.”

At this point she says,”OK, I’ll give you one,” and then she walks over to me, pretends to put something in my pocket, and says “Boop. There you go.”

Yep, she gave me a second, just like she asked. It was at this point that my wife and I stopped what we were going and gave her some butter bread.

Boy did we smile after that.

  1. That is so cute! I like the way the second made a “boop!” sound.

    Kiko amazed me the other day by telling me about “three” of something, then holding out all ten of his fingers as if emphasising the number. His maths has a long way to go but I was impressed!!
