Daddy's Home!

Daddy's home, and the fun begins!
Just for a minute,
Mama forgets that no running is allowed in the house
And that we take good care of the couch pillows...
We shouldn't ever throw them.
Or walk on them.
Or smoosh them in any way.
Mama's rule about not being rough with each other?
It gets lost for a little bit
As Daddy wrestles each child to the floor,
Tickles at the most unexpected times,
Growls like a wild lion
And poses in some sort of threatening stance.
Daddy's home, and the fun begins!

Great photos! You've captured that moment perfectly. :) I love the way the energy level picks up at our place when Paul comes home--and I love the smile on his face when he hears that delighted chorus of "Daddy!" from the kids. What a blessing!

This was such a cute post! And I feel the exact same way - nothing makes me happier than watching my girls greet Daddy when he gets home from work.
