Life on Dad's Watch

Me and My Daddy (and baby Connor)
We all remember what it was like when Dad was left in charge? I remember those nights when my Mom had some ladies thing at church and Dad was in charge. The evening was full of wrestling matches, dinner in front of the TV, rag-baths (Which meant Mark and I were handed a washcloth and told to wipe down, I don't think Mom would approve), and finally going to bed in my parent's bed. My Dad always fell asleep before Mark and I which always brought on loads of laughs especially when my Dad started snoring. Those memories make me laugh and warm my heart even more since my boys have begun to experience "Life on Dad's watch".
Life on Dad's Watch Moment #1: Bryce got into my TKids bag and found the markers. He then proceeded to decorate himself, all on Dad's watch.
Life on Dad's Watch Moment #2: Eating Ice Cream at the Zoo. It only happens when Dad is with us.
Life on Dad's Watch Moment #3: Dad let the boys eat frosted Valentines Day cookies right before bed, while I was still at TKids.

I look forward to more fun moments on Dad's watch as the years continue to fly by. What do you remember doing on Dad's watch?

Way to throw me under the bus.

my mom never let me watch scary movies, partly b/c I would wet the bed and keep her up all night but partly b/c small children shouldn't watch very scary things. Rick always let me watch Saturday Sci-Fi flicks with him while she was grocery shopping. Even though I can count on one hand the happy memories of him being around, I still love Godzilla movies and cheesy Sci-Fi flicks including, but not limited to, giant rabbits, towns taken over by spiders, flying pirhanas, and anything dubbed in English from Japanese.

There must be something about those sci-fi movies that hook Dads. Because my Dad loved them too.
