Happy Birthday Daddy! by Angel

(The following post was composed entirely by Angel (except the italics) and typed by her mother):

Today is my Dad's birthday. He is turning 82 (we still occasionally mix up our 8s and 3s). He is not as old as my mom though because she is 27!

For Daddy's birthday, I wanted to get him a truck. A toy one. But I didn't. But I got him some chocolate balls that are his favorite candy. And he will have one and he will share the rest with me because he loves me so much.

I made a card for my dad. It has a "T" on the front, and Happy Birthday - my mom wrote that. And I drew pink and light blue smiley faces with yellow hair. And I wrote an M. And this is what it says because I told Mommy to write it:

Dear Dad,
Happy Birthday.
I love you.
I love you giving me hugs.
I love you playing with me.
If you want, you can come to my house.
I hope you have a good day.
Love (Angel)

And I made wrapping paper all by myself. It has my hands and feet on it. Light blue and pink ones. And rainbow even black and white.

You're the best. (she actually says that! It's hilarious!) And I hope Mommy will go to work and then I can stay home with you again. But if you have to go to the hospital I'll come with you and help you help the sick people. Because sometimes I love you even more than Mommy.

That's so sweet. I love that you wrote it just as she was saying it. It made me laugh at the end.

That's pretty cool about how you and your man got engaged. One day huh?! All the falling in love part happened during that 1st year. :)

Ha ha ha! Kids say the darndest things, don't they? That was cute, and some day, when she's a mom, she'll probably want to remind you that she didn't really mean that she loved her dad more than you. And when it comes to your birthday, she'll probably turn it right around.

Thanks for the great chuckle, and please wish Jon a happy 82nd birthday from me!
