What David Got For Father's Day...


Two little girls peeking into the back window to secretly spy on Daddy as he goes to the bathroom.

So, basically David's Father's Day present is...not getting a single moment to himself.

But this is what happens when your kids want to be around you as much as they can, even when you are taking a pee, because they think you might be the most wonderfully magical, intensely fun, consistently and predictably loving person on the planet. He'll just have to deal with that kind of constant adoration.

He's also going to stain the back deck today. And he's making me help him. Lord. Doesn't he just want a tie or something? Is hard labor really the appropriate gift here? He bought me my own paint brush.

Obviously, he's right in his glory.

Ah, fatherhood. Mine decided he wants to take the girls to their first move in a movie theatre today. That won't go well at all. There shall be liquor when we return home.

*Not getting a single moment to himself* and I'll bet that's just the way your David loves it!

Happy Father's Day to him.

Ha! The staining....

Apparently, I'm so good at it, I've been signed up for next weekend. Not what I was expecting. :)

It's amazing how girls treat their fathers as their sole property.
I'm guessing he loved every second of that togetherness.

Sounds better than my Sunday; I worked all day.

When you said he was going to stain the porch, I was still thinking about the first half of the post, so I pictured him pissing all over it while the kids watched in horror/amusement. Sorry.
