Bringing Something Special

jeanfroner

Mommies are great nurturers.  They bring warmth and love and cuddles to the parenting experience, and to a newborn, they are the ultimate security blanket. But what makes Dads so great, is that they bring so much fun into the equation!  Studies show that babies prefer playing with Dad to Mom because Dad is usually sillier and more fearless.  While Moms focus on educational play, Dads are often rough and tumble, and what's more fun than that?  So Dads, when you are feeling like baby ALWAYS wants your partner, just remember, she may be the boo boo kisser, but you get to be the piggie-back King!
