Wow. Daddy/Daughter Fun Time has reached its first birthday.
I’ll be rolling out posts all week in celebration.
And, now the sucking up: I couldn’t have done it without the support, comments, text messages, restraint orders, and UN resolutions from each of you. Running a blog can be very time consuming, especially with everything else in life. So, I thank you all for your indulgence. Even the Hate Mail (at least you’re reading.)
(Really, I’ve never gotten hate mail. So, obviously, I’m not trying hard enough.)
I’ve been going through all of the rough drafts of things that tickled me for 5 seconds, or came to me after my third Margarita. Turns out, there’s a reason you’ll never see them.
Lots of talk of Boobs. Something called Mommy/Daddy Fun Time. Tragically embarrassing details that would scar soon-to-be teenage girls if the public knew.
Oh, look. More Boobs.
Clearly, I have issues.
Now, I must go spend actual time with the girls of the Fun Time, instead of just writing about them. I hear a game of Rat-A-Tat Cat happening. Oh… Delicious arguments abound.
In the meantime, here’s a post that I thought I had published, but I can’t find it:
Going through Julianna’s (she’s 8) DVR recordings tonight:
J: Oooh, Daddy. I want to see the one with the Hot Princess.
Me: Seriously. The Hot Princess? You know that a Princess can be “Hot?” Where do you get this stuff? You’ve been watching way too much TV. And, I know that I contribute to this by working in an industry which promulgates body-image stereotypes on girls and young women which are totally unrealistic and warp their sense of beauty and self-worth? God, I’m horrible.
J: No, Dad… I meant she’s actually hot. She’s the FIRE Princess. From “Adventure Time.”
Me: Oh… The Fire Princess. From “Adventure Time.” You mean the show that has won numerous Emmy and Annie Awards? And is considered one of the best of the current generation’s animated series?
J: I guess. I don’t know.
Me: Ok, then… Never mind.
Ok, I embellished that one a bit. (But it all flashed through my mind in an instant.)
