On our trip to Skyline Drive and the Luray Caverns, we did the typical road games to pass the time and entertain each other. Out of the blue, Nariah starts beatboxing. She actually came up with a good beat, so I started to bob my head a little.
Daddy, don’t you like my beat?
Yeah Nariah, its pretty funky!
Aren’t you gonna freestyle then?
Oh, Ok, if that’s the kinda party this is then…. let’s do it!

So I graced her ears with a silly freestyle as only daddy can do, and then passed the mic to mommy. She said a few rhymes and then passed the mic to Nariah in the back. This went on for about 3 rounds passing the mic back and forth, with us pretty much just freestyling about any and everything that had happened on the trip.

At the end, Nariah asks : “Mommy, who won?
Who won? This was a contest? Oh you know daddy was the best!
Yes daddy, this was a game show. Mommy, who won? Daddy or me?
Hmmm, it was tough…. but the winner is………… Nariah!!!!!!

What? Nariah??? Now ya’ll know that daddy was on point!

Daddy….. You need to get more talent and some skills to beat me!

*Pause*

I look over to Toya. “Did she just say I need to get some talent… AND some skills?
Ha ha ha, yes, she did, hahaha
Heeheeheee, that was good huh daddy?

I don’t remember if I answered her or not. My feelings may have been hurt too much, lol.

Last night’s conversation let me know I’m due for a long and expensive parenthood…

Its bedtime and the girls call me into Nariah’s bedroom for prayers. Toryn is getting over a cold and is on the last leg of his meds. I walk into the room and before I can get all they way in, Nariah stops me with a question.

Daddy, can you go down stairs and get Toryn’s medicine for Mommy? Its in the fridge.
Oh ok, in the fridge huh?
Yep, in the door. Thanks Daddy!

Now this is the conversation that takes place while I’m downstairs looking for the medicine :

Thanks for asking Daddy for me Nariah, I was going to go get it, but thanks!
You’re welcome, Daddy’s nice.
You really like asking Daddy to do things for you don’t you?
Yep! He always says yes to me!
Oh he does? You sure?
Yep! Oooooh, I know! When he comes back upstairs, I’m going to ask him can we go to Disney this year!
Disney Nariah? We just went this summer baby.
Hmmm, you’re right… I guess we should wait til Toryn’s a little bit older… How about….. when he’s 4? Then I’ll be 8… yeah!
Hahahah if you say so Nariah.
Yep, he’s gonna take us!

I return back upstairs with the medicine and walk into the room.
OK, here you go, everybody ready for prayers?
Yeah Daddy. I have a quick question tho……
