Every-night before bedtime we ask Little MPB who is taking him to bed tonight. For a while now he always says MommyDaddy.
So then we’d ask again and tell him he had to choose just one of us to take him. Either mommy of Daddy, but not both. And he’d again say MommyDaddy.
Like complete idiots we thought MommyDaddy meant both of us. You know, like he was trying to say Mommy & Daddy. And we just sort of alternated nights, unless he took my hand specifically.
Well, it finally donned on us after a few night of him says MommyDaddy and taking my hand and when he started saying MommyDaddy in other scenarios.
Little MPB absolutely adores his Daddy. As in, we often go through a few days or even a few weeks where he virtually only wants his daddy and wants nothing to do with me.
But, we’ve realized, he loves his daddy so much, he has now added daddy to the end of my name. Almost as if I am allowed to be a substitute daddy when necessary.
I guess I should take my new name as a compliment?
