When the baby’s being a bit whiny and I tell him he can’t have his bottle yet.
When the baby throws his food an impressive distance across the room, at the exact moment my wife walks in.
When there aren’t any tissues readily available, and so I do a quick wipe of the baby’s runny nose with my finger.
Whenever the baby gets that first taste of ice cream.
After a particularly trying day with the baby, when I come home from work and ask my wife what she’d like to do tonight.
When I turn the phone camera on “selfie-mode” and show it to the baby.
When the baby finds the bathroom garbage pail on the floor.
When I’m out for a run with the baby and let go of the jogger for a second to wipe sweat from my face, unbeknownst that it’s at the exact moment that we’ve reached a downward pitch in the road, and the jogger starts to take off faster than my pace.
When the baby is walking around the house putting things in his bucket, and I notice that he has my wife’s expensive cream in there, and so I take it out to put it back.
After a particularly rough day with the baby, when I come home and my wife asks how my day at work was, and I begin to tell her about some of the more minor headaches I had to deal with.
