Just wanted to share one of those happy moments with the other dads…

My poor wife was home with sick boys yesterday, she tells me that the crying and screaming was near constant, and I believe her, I talked with her on the phone several times during the day and could hear the boys crying over the phone. When I finally get home at about 6 in the evening my wife is near wits end. As I come through the door I can hear the crying… then I walk into the back room where my wife is on the couch trying to hold both boys and… they stop. Not all at once, but the crying starts to wind down. I pick up one of the boys and sit on the floor with him, and he starts cooing, giggling and babbling. Once he’s happily playing with his toys I pick up the other boy… more cooing and giggling. Within a few minutes I was being climbed all over by a couple of perfectly happy little guys and you couldn’t tell that they had been feeling sick at all. My wife was, understandably, frustrated that the boys were fussy all day for her, but for me they were all smiles and happiness. I felt bad that she had such a rough day with them (and I can relate as I’ve been alone with them during meltdowns before), but at the same time it was such a treat to have them cheer up when I got home!!

That's cool. I find they kids settle down much easier for my wife - Dad's only good for minor owies and emotional hurts.
