my daddy is so special
i love him so much
i missed him when he was gone
now he is home
my favorite human in the world
is my daddy
he helps me fly my kite
he goes to work for me and my family
he drives the car for the family
yes, this is true
every word that i say in this poem
while i hear the words of this poem
it makes me feel so proud
'cause i love my daddy so much.
recently, anthony had a trip to costa rica.
(yes, some of us around here get to live exotic lives.)
(and "some" of us does not include me... not that i'm bitter about it or anything...)
so ella wrote this poem to welcome him home.
my second favorite thing about this poem is when ella dictated to me that daddy was her "favorite human" she sorta mumbled it.
so i asked for clarification and she looked at me all worried and said, "but does that hurt your feelings?"
a little girl loving her daddy more than any other human?
my first favorite thing about this poem was the tears in daddy's eyes when he read it.
because she is definitely his favorite little human girl in the whole world.
my third favorite thing was when i asked ella if i could put this on my blog she hesitated at first. and after talking her into it, she agreed, "ok, mom. i'll let you do it if you pay me a quarter."
yep. that's my girl.
