As you know my daughter is a big fan of music. Not only that but my wife and I are trying to influence her to listen to our kind of music. In the battle of which music our daughter likes better it helps to have some help.
Thank you Despicable Me for introducing my daughter to “Sweet Home Alabama”
That’s right Lynyrd Skynyrd is now on my daughter’s playlist. That also means I am winning. Ha ha ha wife.
Well my wife is amazing. She has put up with me for six whole years. Not only that it sure seems like she is planning to stick it out much much longer.
That’s right we just had our 6 year anniversary. Time files when you are married to a wonderful woman. Happy Anniversary wonderful wife. I love you.
As you know (or you should know) the other day was May the 4th. Star Wars day. Being the great and wonderful dad I am I needed to make sure my four-year-old daughter understood the greatness of the day. But how do you do that? Can a four-year-old even do that? Sure they can. At least in small degrees. What would appeal to a four-year-old girl? Two things. Yoda and Ewoks.
I open up YouTube and start to show my cute daughter some of the Star War clips. She ate them up. Loved them. She wanted to see every clip. Somehow we even ended up watching some Disney ones where the Star Wars characters are dancing around. Still of all she watched there is one she liked the most. Yoda by Weird Al. She loved the lego version and watched it quite a few times. Then later that day we were driving around and she wanted to listen to the Yoda song. Over and over and over again.
Yoda had her. She was sold. She even said “Yoda is so so so so handsome.” I don’t know about her taste in men but she sure has great taste in movies.
Then at the end of the day she asked “Dad can we watch the movie with Yoda and the Green Sword?” I was so proud. Maybe I should win a dad of the year award. Okay not maybe but probably.
I am the only male that lives in my house. It is usually nice to be living in a house surrounded by beautiful females but I got yelled at for being a male the other day. Okay not really for being a male but for doing a purely male thing. I left the toilet seat up.
I could say I was in a hurry or some other excuse but I don’t think that would help. I was getting ready to leave when a not so happy female voice comes from the bathroom. “Who left the toilet seat up?”
Not even sure why the question. Everyone knows who left it up. I look into the bathroom and see my 4 year old daughter standing there with one hand on her hip and the other pointing to the toilet seat. Big big trouble by my little girl. Good luck to her future husband.
I have started to reread the Harry Potter books. Why you may ask? Because I love them. Such a fun read. I am waiting for the day my daughter wants to read them with me. I tried but she might be a little too young.
She saw the cover of the first book (Harry on a broom) and asked for me to read that part. Finally finding the part and reading a paragraph she then asked “Let’s read something else.” Don’t you worry sooner or later she and I will read Harry Potter together.
Feel free to join me on my reread. Which book is your favorite? Which character? So many moments to relive. Yes Mr. Potter we meet again!!
Listing to the radio and a commercial comes on announcing that Alan Jackson is coming to concert. My daughter perks up in the back seat. “Applejack is coming to town? Can we go see him???”
“It said Alan Jackson not Applejack. Alan Jackson is a singer.” My daughters face is crest fallen. She is super disappointed and my wife is trying to do everything she can not to laugh and my distraught daughter. Guess we need to go find a horse close enough to Applejack for my daughter to pet. Wonder if she will expect him to speak.
