Learn something new everyday

Avery learned a lot of things during her daddy daughter time...ice cream tastes better before dinner, life is much more enjoyable with a ba-ba in one hand and chi-chi (paci) in the other, you can't leave the store with out buying a new toy-like a big, pink, stuffed hippo, folding laundry is a great way to make mommy happy, cheer for the baseball team wearing pin stripes & heckle the opposing team in red, matching your clothes is overrated, shoes are optional, singing is good for the soul, always dip your PB&J in milk before each bite, and this great skill...

This is such a powerful picture, yet hilarious.

It would make an awesome cover to a greeting card.

What a treat to come home to all these fun stories... and folded laundry!

THE FAMILY OF OAK said...

Reina said...

CUTE picture. I love hearing what daddy teaching the kids and then asking him "what were you thinking" after they are in bed. Daddies sure do make the world a better (funner) place!

Gotta LOVE it! Wait for the "pull me finger" trick. It's very popular with the boys :D great picture!

Latrice said...

LOL!! I love it. Great picture. It sounds like she had some good bonding time with daddy.

Daddy said...

We spent all weekend on perfecting the finger entrance...once she can stick it in without touching her fingernail on the outer rim of the nose, I'm calling up America's Got Talent for an interview.

not sure if my comment went through or not. so sorry if this is a repeat. Funny. fathers have a different way than mothers. neither is righter or wronger, just different. I love the picture, btw!

Tiffany said...

Great picture! LOL! Yes Daughters learn lots of cool new things with their daddies. It makes life oh so interesting and fun *smile*

daddy said...

...oh, and Go Yankees.

Andrea said...

Yes, I want to know the song as well!

Amy Hummel said...

Adorable photograph! Love the crop...

Your stories are always so fun. My kids love it when they have daddy time because he does things with them that I just don't think of or have the time for. He likes to take them fishing on Saturdays... I just do housework!

stephanie said...

lovin' it. There is a lot more to come, I have to wonder where all these hubbies learn how to teach our kids all these wonderful traits so fast. I wish that their please and thank you's would stick like the not so desirable ones.

Scrappy Girl said...

Sounds like you were writing about what my daughter has learned from my hubby. LOL! The nose thing will happen now in public places when you least expect it. Usually when it will be the most embarrassing too!

elizabeth said...

kholbro said...

Gotta love dads!

ARob said...

Haha. It took me a minute to even realize that she was digging. I was sort of mesmerized by the fact that the song playing was a piano and then Collin was playing it! Your family is SO CUTE!

Lucy said...

New Skill... Piano or counting the holes in the nose? I bet she can do both at the same time!!

Holly said...

That is such a cute picture! By the way...how are you feeling?

undonegirl said...

Aren't daddys the best? You've got to love them. I'm nearly 40 and still remember all the wonderful dates my dad took me on but have very few actual photos. She will LOVE this...

kartch, what up? i don't know how this whole blog thing works. would be easier if you just had a pinche email. shi shi. anyway, get this: i'm in mumbai right now working for the next 6 months and i went to church today and met a guy who's supposedly really good friends with your dad. some pilot named james crawford. he sends his love....and he seems lonely. wanted to hang out. kinda weird.

anyway, what are you up to these days? apparently your wife's winning scrapbooker of the year but what have you done for yourself? did you end up going to dental school?

let me know what up. thank you and xie xie.
