Daddy’s Day In – A Funny Tale of My Favorite Two

‘My daddy coolest! – Know about this cute tale of Father-Child Relationship’

What happens when Daddy plays MOM for a Day –

Dad; someone who brings hopes of independence from Mom’s jail, 

When mom is angry and whining fire, dad is the rescuer with a happy face. 

He gets her the awesome gifts and is her only solace.

Comes home with the widest smile, brings out many surprises.

Takes out to new places, long drives, for yummy food and beautiful beaches.

He can become a camel, a lion, a tortoise or a mouse.

He laughs out loud and tells mom not to shout.

I like it more with him and when mom is gone out.

We sneak into the tent house, do piggyback, play console, pillow fight out.

Wish to have dad all throughout !!! ©Dipika Singh

Dad – My Perfect Partner in Crime

This is a typical example of my house when it’s the ‘role reversal’. I managed my whole pregnancy and post-partum by myself. Without being dependent on any help from moms (of both sides; mine & husband’s). The bond that we mom-daughter share is magical. I always believed that I know best of ‘how to‘, ‘what to‘ & ‘when to‘ for my little lo.

But then comes the time when my over the top advisory fell straight on its face. I leave my little girl with her dear Dad for some hours. Now the whole equation is changed. He becomes the Coolest Dad who knows all tricks, he’s makes her cozy, jumpy, yet safe. He goes wild with her, makes funny faces, play messy games. Most importantly he let her be her age. 

We moms usually toil behind the surface of wrongs and rights. Our main motive is to make our children capable and acceptable in their nichè. I have encountered the scenarios where fingers were pointed towards the mother if a CHILD misbehaves. But now things are changing, and we are moving towards equal parenting.

I too shared an open relationship with my Dad back then. But the openness and transparency I see between my kid and her father are quite different from mine. Today fathers take & share the same responsibility for bringing up the child as mothers. Probably it’s the by-product of a single child or nuclear family habitations.

Magical Connection – Father-Child Relationship

I enjoy seeing this magical connection between my two. She waits for him until late in the night, all she wants is to fill her piggy bank with his given coins. She giggles when he swoons me in his arms calls him Papu is Shahrukh Khan.

Also, read about Father-Child Relationship in my Gleeful Parenting series.

The secret of being this Coolest Dad is open and quite mean… When it comes to being funny he keeps the reins. The dirty work of reprimanding, pass the buck to ME. Oh YEAH!! Here come the devil and her leash…

This combination of hot & sweet is age-old for mom’s but the father’s love and parenting style is evolving. I believe it’s a start of something good. I enjoy watching them go crazy and when I poke my nose – she tells me – “Mom take a chill-pill”.
