This? THIS is why you have children.

As much as my two kids drive me nuts, they have the ability to make me laugh.

Usually, this is when they trip on something because everyone knows clumsy kids = funny.

But, more often than not, and maybe more than I certainly deserve, I get an 'awwww' moment.

This is one of them.

My office is moving and to prepare for the move we needed to start packing up all our personal shit. This means that I had to pull down the 56 or so drawings and pictures I have of my kids that have curled up from being here for 5 years and try to put them in a box that wouldn't crush them.

One of these things was the big manilla piece of paper with a duck drawn on it that you see up top there. The duck was made from my daughter's foot that she dipped in paint.

This explains the 'yellow bigfoot' I tirelessly searched for in my backyard for 3 weeks back in 2007.

Regardless, as I pulled it down from the wall, I realized it actually opened. Inside was the following piece of paper from my daughter.

I don't know exactly WHEN this was done, but I'm guessing it's circa '07/'08 when she was probably around 8 years old.

This is one of those cases where I got to say, 'what?!' and 'awwww' at the same time.

Like this:

Even though you're short and have glasses..


You're...the #1 dad in the universe.


I also love the fact that she decides to write that the thing we have in common is that we both like those break-n-bake cookies.

Truer words never spoken.

Those things are awesome.

Just like my kids.

Just like it's your fault that you get pranked by your daughter it is also your fault you get these wonderful letters. As a friend of Rodney on FB as well as mooog I see all the great pictures of you and your kids. You do so much with your kids it is obvious they adore you and you them..

That is awesome. And I did live the "even though you're short" bit. Hilarious.

You're a lucky guy, Rodney.

Well, not that your kids are little shits. I was referring to all kids, especially mine.

I lost many of the kids art pieces and sweet letters during one of our moves. I would do anything to get them back.
