Dan is the cutest dad. Maggie loves him and she always cries when he leaves in the morning. She usually doesn't cry for me. When Maggie wakes up in the night (she doesn't do it too often thank goodness) Dan is usually up checking on her before I've even become aware of the cries. He's a great husband and father. That said, here are some funnies he's come up with lately:
On Tuesday I was getting ready to go visiting teaching and I thought it would be nice to give away some of the cute Halloween cookies I'd made (they looked like Candy Corn... so cute!) So, I was coming up with a fun way to package them. I turned to Martha Stewart. I love her but I hate her. But I love her Halloween stuff. I was going through her clipart and templates and found a cute bat. I made up some cheesey pun to go with it (something about how its always fun to "hang out" with you) and Dan didn't get it. So, I tried another image and saying. He made fun of that one as well. Finally out of desperation, I just picked one and printed it. It was a spooky looking owl and I wrote "Thanks for being 'whooo' you are." So incredibly corny. I know. But I didn't expect Dan to have such a hay-day with it. Even when we said our nightly prayer he said "Please bless that we will love each other for 'whoo' we are." We both started laughing so hard that it took us a minute to wind back down and end the prayer.
Yesterday Dan picked up Maggie from his mother's. He finishes at school before I do on Thursdays so he beat me. But when I went to give my girl a kiss--she reeked of onions! I asked Dan what was up with that and he said that Maggie kept getting into her grandma's pantry and playing with the onions. So, he chopped one up and fed it to her so that she would know that she didn't like them and would leave them alone. I don't know if that part of the plan worked... but she sure stunk!
