Oh, that's why you think your daddy is great?

I found this fill-in-the-blank "Best Dad" certificate online and figured it would be a great thing for Chickie to make for her Daddy. I asked her questions, and used her answers to fill in the blanks. This is what the completed certificate says:

My dad, Daddy, is the best dad in the world because he really knows how to take care of me and always gives me Tic Tacs. Every morning he wakes up and that makes me feel good! Whenever I need training pants my dad always puts them on and he never needs to get suppositories. His biggest talent is singing at church and he can put pictures on the wall like no one else. One day I hope I can write letters just like him! I love when we play football together because I feel good just being around him. Whenever we go on vacation he takes care of me and is the best daddy around. I don't know how I'd learn without him. I want him to know I am going to grow up because he's a BEST DADDY and that's why my dad is the best dad in the world!


Well, at least if she's unwilling to poop in the potty, she's grateful for her daddy continuing to give her disposable training pants when she needs them. And clearly she's hoping we never have to use a suppository in her again.

She'll love it if we drag this out when she brings a boy home in 15 years; don't you think?

And so beautifully colored! Very cute. I love that he gives her Tic Tacs. Oh, the mind of a child.

What a treasure! It will be very fun pulling this out when she is older.

VERY cute,
we're sure that this one goes into her time capsule. :-)

a happy father's day to the Engineer.

What a cute idea ... and of course, leave it to Chickie to spice it up with some potty-language, LOL!

"She'll love it if we drag this out when she brings a boy home in 15 years; don't you think?"

FIFTEEN YEARS till she brings home a boy? Has daddy told her she can't date till she's 18? :)

Very worth keeping to bring out at the most appropriate moment.
That is one of the bennies of being a parent...embarrassing or children.

Adorable! We went to a niece's high school graduation yesterday and there was a bulletin board with pictures and this sort of thing on it. I didn't see anything too embarrassing, but it does give new importance to being careful to always comb your hair for school pictures and never write anything when you're little that you wouldn't want all your relatives to read! :)

Becki--I thought so too. :)

Cate--She really does do lovely coloring! I love her "style."

Caryn--I hope she likes it when I pull it out when she's older. She'll probably just roll her eyes. :)

bARE-eYED sUN--Thank you! The Engineer had a great Father's Day.

Lyndsay--Nothing is off-limits when it comes to Chickie's conversation topics. I'm sure you understand. :)

rainylakechick--That is VERY, VERY wishful thinking on my part. I thought about saying "10 years" but I really hope she isn't bringing boys over at 13....

2cats--Ha! I agree! They embarrass us enough, it's fun to embarrass them.

MarjnHomer--Yeah, it makes sense in her crazy 3-year-old mind!

Our Scoop--The perfect combo of sweetness and oddness. :)

addhumorandfaith--What a great idea to have that type of bulletin board at a graduation!
