Dads R Fun!

The morning hustle is in progress, the kids eat breakfast.  I’m getting ready to go on a trip (to the Austin Film Festival, which, by the way, was so inspiring).  So I’m giving the family the last minute orders.


ME
OK guys, now while I’m away, you guys need to help Daddy.

Greg pipes in while he is packing the lunches (Yes, I have an AWESOME husband who saves me from the doldrums of the daily lunch packing.  And yes, I do REALLY appreciate it.).


GREG
Hey!  You’re making it sound like I’m a bad dad!

I begin detangling the rat’s nest upon Sasha’s head.


ME
I’m not saying that at all.  You are a fantastic DAD.  You’re just not a fantastic MOM.

SASHA
You know what's the best thing about Mom being away?

ME
What?

SASHA
I never have to comb my hair.
