I unlock the front door after another day at work and Swee’Pea and TheMonk notice my arrival from the other room. “DAAAADDDDYYYY!!!!” they scream as they barrel towards me like out of control bowling balls. I quickly set my stuff down and get down on my knees to accept the avalanche of love I’m about to receive.
After receiving my hugs and kisses (and doling out a good amount of my own), I begin to talk to Swee’Pea and TheMonk about their day. On this day, Swee’Pea had to go to preschool on her own in the morning as TheMonk had a doctor’s appointment so he could have his stuffed-up ear looked at.
Swee’Pea tells me that TheMonk missed chapel that morning at preschool.
“He did?” I ask. “Did you like chapel?”
“Yes.” replies Swee’Pea.
“Well, what was chapel about?” I inquire.
*Sigh* “It was about Jesus, Daddy. It’s always about Jesus.”
I swear I saw her roll her eyes.
