Why I’ll Never Be President

Okay, I posted what might be considered an embarrassing picture of the Older Daughter. So, I’ll follow suite and share one of myself. We finally entered the digital photography age about 5 years ago. Shortly after buying our shiny new camera, the girls wanted to try it out. So, being the accommodating dad that I am, I hammed it up for them so that they could take this picture.

Dad: Now the Preferred Search Engine?

I received a call from the Older Daughter today, but was at work and could not take the call immediately. When I called her back, she answered with “Nevermind, I found what I needed on Google.”

You may remember in a previous post that I was lamenting being reduced to a taxi driver and banker. But now, I guess I’m a search engine also. Initially I was bothered that she didn’t want to take the time to go search on the computer. But maybe I should be flattered to be her search engine of choice–at least in this one instance.  🙂

Because I Said So

Thanks to Nectarfizz for sharing this clip. She’s got some funny stuff–check her out.

Most of my posts are from a dad’s point of view. But let’s take a moment to honor moms. In my household (and many others), if it weren’t for The Wife, things just wouldn’t get done. Seriously, if I wasn’t married, I would probably sign up for a grocery delivery service, move the fridge to the living room, and have the couch surgically attached to my butt. That’s how lazy I would be.

In this video clip (Mom’s Overture by Anita Renfro), she has taken all of the things a mom says to the kids in a day and condensed them down into just under 3 minutes. She sings them to the tune of the William Tell Overture. Enjoy…
