When Mom's away...

....the kids will play.


And by kids, I mean these two...

My daughter

and

my husband.



While I was out this past weekend taking care of a few errands, I received the text message {pictured below} from Bret.

What followed can only be described as classic Daddy/daughter bonding. After all, there's nothing quite like an oreo to bring two people together.

Not only did I arrive home to find Gillian Grace cleaned up, oreo free, and wearing a completely new outfit, but the upstairs had been vacuumed and the laundry started.

I'm beginning to think I should run errands alone more often. Bret is a regular Mr. Mom. {Minus the kitchen rubber gloves, clothespin on the nose, goggles, and apron of course!}

Pretty sure when Bret videoed this moment with GG he didn't intend for me to post it, but I just couldn't help myself. Much like an oreo, this little snippet of father/daughter sweetness is just to hard to resist!

Best oreo eating I've ever seen!
Loved Mr Mom...conquering the vacuum cleaner...making toast with the iron if I remember..doing it wrong in the car line. So funny! I'm sure Bret would do a much better job!
Have a great week.

So very cute!

And I remember that Mr.Mom movie. I guess that dates me terribly.

He did a fabulous job!! Vacuuming as well? Bonus points!

GG looks so cute all covered in Oreo. Isn't that the best feeling coming home to a happy baby who has been hanging out with Dadddy all day?
