I worked last night, and brought home with me a slice of Cracker Barrel Chocolate Coca Cola Cake. I decided to save it for breakfast. This morning Jamie was feeding Dante breakfast when Amelia noticed the cake on the table, still in its take home box. I immediately knew I should have hid it in my sock drawer.
She got three forks out, naming off Dante, Amelia, Mom as she took them out of the drawer. I told her it is MY cake. Amelia responded "Good Grief" (I hear that a lot from her) and put one of the forks back. She set the other two on the table and said "Mom and Amelia". I knew I had lost that battle, and apparently Dante lost too!
It turns out my biggest mistake was giving Leif a bite too. The best way to lose weight is to have Amelia and Leif share your food.
I am working again tonight. Since the boys are off working for the summer and Nikita has youth group and a sleepover tonight, Jamie will be home with the five youngest: Amelia, Sunny, Micah, Dante, and Leif.
Jamie is an amazing Dad, and he will have no problem taking care of it all. I did make scalloped potatoes and ham in the crockpot so he does not have to do a lot of cooking. He always puts the kids in bed, even the nights I am home, so they have a solid routine down.
Jamie is Superhero Dad. Even Dante, though trapped in the world of Autism, clearly thinks his Dad is tops.
