Rorschach Pride

by doodaddy on December 29, 2008

Spilled and dried roofing tar on the sidewalk outside our playground.



Unprompted, Boo shouts, “Look, two deer!”

It takes me a while to catch on, but eventually I see them. “Nice observation, Boo!” I encourage, pridefully.

“Daddy! I’m not Boo!” she protests.

A pause.

“I’m Dorothy!”

Oh, crap, I forgot. Do you see it?

I’ll give you a hint: the pig on the leash is named Toto.

Yeah, if she knocked her heels together, who knows where she might end up!

Cute story. Quick question; I have a daughter coming in March and really have no idea how to entertain a little girl. You seem to do a great job at it.

Are tea parties and her dressing up like Dorthy something you just learn to pick up? Was there a learning curve you had with being a dad to a little girl?
