Gracie spent a good half hour trying her hardest to convince me that what Will really wanted for Father's Day, was a Mr. Potato Head (and only a Mr. Potato Head, she insisted. That's all he wants. And probably a Barbie bike).
Ah, the sweetness of kids. So thoughtful, so considerate. Unfortunately for her, I bought him a few movies instead (The Boondock Saints, Fight Club and The Dark Knight... a far cry from a Mr. Potato Head and a Barbie bike, but a little more in line with his personal tastes - sorry Gracie)
So, to express her love, she drew him a Batman card and wrote him a poem:
by Gracie Hopkins
I love my daddy because he's nice
and because I really love him.
My favorite thing to do with Daddy is read a book
I love to eat spaghetti
I love Daddy, too.
Please can I go to the park soon?
I like it when we play
I love you
Darling, sweet little two year old...
Happy Father's Day, Will!
