Where's Daya?

I just think it is so adorable how my kids literally squeal with excitement when their "Daya" pulls in to the driveway from work. It's amazing to me that they can pinpoint almost the exact time to start asking for him and sniffing around like little hound dogs. They cruise the dining room and peek out the window in shifts, and when someone gets the lucky look and he's actually backing in it becomes complete mayhem! What a good feeling it must be to have such an enthusiastic and loving fan club to greet you when you walk in from a long, hard day at work.

The question, "where's Daya?" is probably the most often repeated on any given day, and today I decided to see just how many times I heard it. I lost count at 72.


It also breaks my heart how sad they get in the morning when we watch him leave for work. This picture is EXACTLY what I see every morning...

That's so sad!!!

I hate when they turn to me from the window and say, "Byebye Daddy. Where Daddy goin'?"

He works swing shift, so he's sometimes gone when they wake up, and sometimes he leaves in the middle of the afternoon. At least I only have to see those sad faces about half the time!

Your kids are so ADORABLE. Even when they are a bunch of sleepy babies :) Mine look like monsters in the morning!
