Who’s Your Daddy?

Part of Vista’s nature is her need to control her environment.

That means constantly asking me “Who we going to see today?”.  Over and over.  All. Day. Long.

It doesn’t matter if I give her the same answer over and over, all day long.  She still needs to ask the question.

The other question I hear all day long is “Who was that?” after every single phone call.

Now, I wouldn’t be the mother I am, if I didn’t take these opportunities entertain myself at her expense.  Because, really, that’s what parents are for, right?

So by the eleventy billionth time I’ve been asked ‘Who we going to see today’, rather than giving her the same answer I’ve been giving all day long, I’m more likely to tell her that we’re going to see the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and after that the Ghostbusters might make an appearance.  Heh.

But I don’t only use these opportunities to educate my daughter on the finer points of ’80’s comedies.  It’s also the perfect time to discuss religion.

*I hang up after talking to Bil*

Vista: “Who was that?”

Me: “God”

Vista: “Who is your God?”

Me: “Excellent question. Daddy is.”

Vista: “Daddy is your God? Bil is my daddy God.”

That’s right. We’re teaching her to worship us as deities.

Hey, it worked for the Egyptians.

    @Melissa Wardy,

    That is an excellent question.
    It could probably get expensive for me though… every time I forget to do laundry and run out of clean clothes, I’d be knocking on your door to buy one of your shirts. lol

    I wonder what would happen if we got these girls together?? J is EXACTLY the same. She asks me a bajillion times a day:

    “Who’s coming today?”
    “Where are we going today?”
    “Who will play with me today?”
    “Who was on the phone?”
    “When will Daddy be home?”

    A BAJILLION I tell you!! That’s crazy-making material.

    Also? I’m pretty sure the Egyptians were geniuses.
