Dad made what?

Sitting down to a beautiful meal prepared by chef Matt last night...
I exclaim  "Addie, look at this! Doesnt  this look so good! Tell Daddy how great it looks!"
Addison looks at her plate and looks up at me perplexed, and says "Who made this for us?"
Not understanding her confusion I say "Daddy! Didnt he do a great job!
"No, Mom, your not understanding me, I mean Who brought this to us?"

After much explaining, the poor girl still does not get the concept that Daddy can feed us.

I guess this makes me feel good for two reasons, I have been doing a wonderful job of hiding the fact that Daddy CAN indeed cook, and I have obviously been keeping this family fed for 4 years now, never alluding to the fact that anyone can do it but me.


  1. Matt can cook without setting the house on fire?? That is fantastic!! Kidding!! It is great for Addison to see that both parents can share chores and tasks and see that cooking and cleaning is not just your job but something that everyone is responsible for doing. Best wishes to you, Matt, Addison and your new little girl in wait. I was on bed rest for the last few weeks of my last pregnancy - I didn't listen so well and my youngest son came early - SCARY!! That was 8 1/2 years ago and he is strong and smart and beautiful - everything a mom could ever want!


  2. Haha, I heard Matt talking about this on the show today, sooo funny!

  3. That is hysterical! Probably it's about time that she learned that Matt can cook, since otherwise Addison will grow up believing that this is something she absolutely must do because the man in her life won't know a thing about it. And while that may be true when she finds Prince Charming, now is the time to let her know that the Prince probably can provide his own dinner when no other options present themselves!! Love you, Amy!
