Just when you think reintegration from a deployment is complete. Yesterday morning the dutchkid woke up at around 6am. She’s been sick again and has quite a nasty cold. I took her to snuggle in my bed for a few minutes in the hopes of getting another hour or so of sleep. Dh is normally gone to PT by then, but he was still asleep on his side of the bed.
“Who’s this?” she pipes as she reaches over to touch his face.
“Who’s this?!” my dh asks her back, now wide awake, “Who do you think it is?”
“Oh. Daddy! Hi Daddy.”
” ‘Who’s this’. Who else has your mother been sleeping with?” He laughs.
The truth is, she got really used to it being just her and I in the big bed while he was gone. But I guess we’re making progress, she recognized him!
