The Joke is on Daddy

I (Brownie) have a petite bladder. So I tend to wake daddy up rather early for him to let me out to go potty in the morning. Sometimes its 5:00, other times its 5:30ish, still other times, if I’m nice, it’s after 6. But regardless of the time, I wake him up the same way. I walk right up on top of him and proceed to kiss him on the nose until he wakes up. He always responses the same way--with a smile and the question “Want to go potty?” He’s such a cute daddy.

Rocco & I (Brownie) thought it would be funny to play a joke on daddy this morning.

I started the regular ritual by climbing over him & giving him kisses, but it was super extra early. We both watched as daddy turned over…reached for his glasses and put them on. He groaned and in a grumpy voice asked mommy what time it was. She said: 4:16. He groaned again as he slowly got out of bed and stumbled towards the door. I follow him off the bed and towards the hall…but I stopped suddenly in the doorway. Daddy was already down the hall when he realized I wasn’t behind him. He turned and said: “Come on Brown. Let’s go potty” as he started down the steps. Instead of running after him like usual, I turned around, climbed back in bed and settled in with a heavy sigh.

It took daddy a minute to realize I didn't need to go out. Then he staggered back into the room, took his glasses off and fell back into bed.

Rocco and I laughed quietly. We think we heard mommy snicker too.
It’s so fun (and easy) to play jokes on daddy.
