A Daddy's job

Being a big picture dork, I took pictures of Curtis and Allison while they loaded up the truck with her stuff to bring back home last week. Allison is really good at rolling her eyes when she sees the camera but loves the pages I do, so I ignore her and tell her to smile. I knew exactly how I was going to journal on this page when she gave her Daddy his birthday card last week. She said she chose it not only because it was the only card on the rack that said "Daddy" rather than Father but because it had pictures of monsters on it. The monsters reminded her of when he used to check for monsters in the closet before she went to bed at night when she was small. I just love it when my girls share random memories like that with us. Gives me warm fuzzies.

The journaling says, "When you were little, Daddy's job was to check for monsters in the closet and kiss boo-boos well. Now that you are grown, he helps you move and reminds you to change your oil. A Daddy's job is never done."
