Happy 40th Birthday, Todd the Bod

HEY DAD. GOT SOMETHING TO TELL YA!

YEAH, DAD. ME TOO!
We think you are so super cool. You do the funnest things with us. Like this night...
when you were hiding from mom when she walked in and saw what we had been up to.
It is ok, dad. Really! It is cool to be a hands on dad! And it is cool to let us decorate your hair! and that you play with and rock our baby, Sue Groves. and that you give us candy BEFORE supper. and that you know the importance of having matching bows and panties on with our dresses.

Mom is lucky that she has you to help her raise us. She thinks you are the perfect partner for life. And we are excited about this new time in our lives when we are moving into a new house and get to start kindergarten; and have lots and lots and lots of trick or treating and dances, and dates, and the times when you will have to take us to the mall to get the perfect pair of shoes (and don't forget accessories), and days that we just want to hang out with YOU in our futures.

Nope. We don't think you are old, dad!
We just think you ROCK!

Happy Big 4-0 Daddy-o!

Mom, Ellie and Gabbi Girl

My tough pipe-fitter Daddy used to let us 3 fix on his hair. Decades later and it's still one of my most treasured memories!

What a lovely post! If I could remember turning 40, I would love it more!

May this year be filled with wonderful moments that warm your soul. Thank you for being a great daddy to those two girlies, and a forever soulmate to what's her name.

Happy Birthday Todd. Your girls will love that you will play dress up with them. BTW Mo, call a sports store and see if they have atomic balm. It is great for tentinitis (I know I spelled that wrong) It's hot but could always tell when I used it.
