When Daddy's in Charge

Elsie received an invitation to a friend's birthday party--her first official social engagement. I was very sad I had to miss it, but I had to work at Sylvan and go to a Sun Belt meeting immediately after, so I made sure that Eli could take her. It was the birthday boy's 2nd birthday, and it was a pajamas and donuts party (cute idea). I figured Eli could handle it.


At some point during the morning I received a text message, something cryptic about chocolate milk being Elsie-approved! You know, my first reaction was WHAT?!?!? But, I think that was the control freak in me. I mean, I know that pediatricians recommend that babies under twelve months NOT have cow's milk, but I didn't think that Eli knew that. And then my more laissez-faire side kicked in. In all likelyhood, Elsie's pediatrician would be at that party, and I'm sure she would say something if it were a major problem. Right? :)


And then I received incriminating photographic evidence that is too cute not to show you. So, I didn't have to 100% miss out on this...milestone? And, yes, that's Eli's hand holding the bottle.

Yes, Daddy did know that about cow's milk. But it was chocolate milk!!! How could we pass that up? Daddy drank the rest of the carton, which didn't fit in the bottle.
