Lil' Expert asked me if he could hold Daddy's alarm clock in his lap while he was watching a movie the other day. He said he wanted to keep track of the time and hours so he would know when Daddy was coming home from work. The closer it gets to 4:30 or 5:00 each day, the more excited he gets. He knows Daddy will play Wii games, chess, computer games, and take him swimming. He likes Daddy to tuck him in best.  

Storytellin' Boy spends a lot of his day thinking about things his Daddy would like. He draws him pictures, packs him lunches and writes him letters while he is gone at work. He also pretends that he has to go to work too! He will talk about his job and his boss and show us his drawings and say, "these are my work papers." He loves telling secret stories with Dad right before bed.

Brown-Eyed Gal likes to play with her stuffed animals with Daddy. She laughs when he acts out the animal sounds. She likes to go in the pool and spa with Dad.  At night she says, "My daddy loves me." She loves to have stories read out loud from Dad.     

Lil' Red loves to play peek-a-boo with Dad and giggles at his crazy antics. When he first walks in the door, she runs to him and wants to be picked up right away. She likes to climb up on his lap when he is working at the computer and try to push all the buttons.

Thanks for being such a good dad and connecting with each of the kids in their own special way. We appreciate what a great father you are, and we love you very much!

"It is a wise father that knows his own child"
