Nah, she wouldn’t do that, would she?

August 14, 2012

I didn’t notice until I went to scan the print. She wouldn’t actually give her old dad the finger, would she? Nah… Would she? 🙂

I had a little break today – Mae went to daycare, and I have to say it was nice to have a little peace and quiet. I took a nap – something I really needed because I was up at 4AM’ish when the electricity went out. I have power backups on our computers, so when the electricity goes out, an alarm sounds to tell me to power things down in the next thirty minutes. I lay there for ten minutes listening to the alarms – just about to get up – and then the electricity came back on. Too late. I couldn’t get back to sleep, so I got up, got dressed for a workout and headed to the club. I was done with my workout by 6:20. Yeah, I needed a nap.

I picked Mae up from daycare – or – I should say, I took the wagon with me and shuttled her home. She HATES walking when she’s tired – and she’s ALWAYS tired after daycare. I did my best to get her to pose for me on the way home – no luck. I tried once we got home – no luck. I even made her favorite pizza for dinner – still no luck.

The thing about Mae is you have to catch her at just the right time if you want a nice photo. That time is usually when she’s sitting on my lap and telling me that she loves me – and that’s exactly what happened. It’s just the two of us this evening – her mama is out with some guy named Picasso – so Mae and I had dinner, and when she got to the “I love you dah” part, I just said, “Can I PLEASE just take ONE photo?”her response: “sure, dada”. She wanted to take along MY teddy bear for the photo (I’ve had him for as long as I can remember) – perfect…
