Yesterday we left Atlanta – going on Madalyn’s first plane ride – and Katie’s first that she’ll remember – for San Antonio, Texas. Leaving Michael at home. With my mom. And her cat.
So…Honey…have a wonderful Father’s Day! By yourself. Doing things that you want to do. However you want to do them. Did you know that people often give gifts that they themselves would like to receive?
So...I asked the girls today...what are their favorite things about Daddy...and here is what they had to say:
I like it when he plays games with me. (Michael will go and play the DVD Pokemon game with the girls...even though he knows *absolutely* nothing about it. Or, his favorite was the My Little Pony matching game. Where all the ponies look curiously alike. If you are a dad. Or a mom.)
When he is silly.When he teaches me new things to do. Like camping.
Or cannon balls into the pool.Or how to ride a scooter.
And especially when he throws me in the pool.
When we go to feed the ducks.
Hey...that's not a duck.
When he shares his snacks with us.
When he lets us do things that mommy won't.
