Daddy is King

I knew it would happen soon enough.

When Daddy is home, Daddy is King.

Daddy must be in the same room as Elijah. If Daddy is not in the same room, Elijah will go looking for Daddy. If Daddy walks past the doorway, then Elijah will complain that he has been ignored. When Daddy has his shoes on and picks up his keys, he gets goodbye waves without prompting. Daddy is more interesting than dinner and more fun than any toy. It's very difficult to feed Elijah when Daddy is washing the dishes or putting away groceries.

Daddy is King.

But there are no kisses for Daddy. No, all kisses are reserved for Mummy and for that, I am grateful.
