I love when Lincoln tries to give me a ‘wet willy’
I love when Luca gently kisses my cheek each night when I tuck her in bed.
I love when Anna says, “Dad, you being bad. Go to your room” when I don’t give her more than one Tic Tac.
I love when Kai takes my finger, squeezes it and then tried to bite it.
I love when Anna puts on my dress shoes and flops around the house like a clown.
I love to see how happy they get when their grandparents come to visit. (That’s a picture of my father with Luca, Anna and Lincoln during his last visit)
I love taking Luca to Dairy Queen where she’s unable to decide what flavor of ice cream and finally says in her raspy voice, “Dad, you just pick”.
I love when Lincoln asks me questions that are difficult to answer like, “What’s under the ocean?”
I love when Luca tells me how to work the Tivo, the Nintendo or the microwave.
I love when the kids sit on top of me while laughing at the Smurfs while I don’t understand a thing about the show.
I love bringing up the Tivo menu ready to watch Top Gear and realizing the kids Scooby Doo marathon on Boomerang pushed it off the list to record.
I love lifting Lincoln up to the ceiling and then dropping him onto his bed taking his breath away.
I love listening to the kids say the prayer on the food and including everything under the sun (pets, friends, toys) except a blessing on the food.
I love the outfits Anna puts together like the one today that consisted of an orange summer dress, purple tights and one shoe and one sandal.
I love when the kids run down the stairs to tell me they’ve found a spider so big and so mean that only I could get it.
I love watching Anna eat a bowl of applesauce and wondering how so much ended up in her ears and hair.
