Hey Daddy?
At school today my friend said he had every Power Ranger ever made
And Daddy?
Wouldn't it be great if trees grew indoors to make shade
And Daddy?
Guess what I did when I got home
And Daddy?
I was playing with the dog and her bone
And Daddy?
Will you make me noodles just the way you do
And Daddy?
Mom doesn't cook them quite like you
And Daddy?
Maybe later we can play
And Daddy?
Stop asking me about my day
And Daddy?
Why do we have to go to school
And Daddy?
On the bus today we passed our pool
And Daddy?
How come we can't swim - the sun is out
And Daddy?
What if the sun were closer to our house
And Daddy?
We learned about horses today
And Daddy?
Do they really eat hay?
And Daddy?
I saw one time on this show
And Daddy?
Spongebob talked funny without his nose
And Daddy?
Why can't I run in the house
And Daddy?
Did mom tell you the cat caught a mouse
And Daddy?
Why does God let me cry
And Daddy?
Does he really live in the sky?
And Daddy?
At show and tell someone brought a rabbit I got to touch
And Daddy?
Stop hugging me so much
And Daddy?
I checked out a new book for you to read to me tonight
And Daddy,
I love you goodnight.

Its absolutely imperative that we record these events. As for my own father, he has a 4-track recording of me singing The Beatles "Hey Jude." at 18-months.

I'll need to digitize that at some point I guess.

Absolutely! Far to quickly these times will pass!

Yes, we'd all like to mock cherrish that moment with you.

I have an idea...

we can record you lip-synching to that recording and post it for everyone's enjoyment.

Now that would be funny! :)

Ten Years from now the list will contain only two questions....

Hey Dad.
Can I borrow the car?

photogoot, I'm was told to ask you about digitization.

"Digitize me, Fred!"

I think this is the poem that you will be remembered for. I further dare say that there will be many tears shed over this poem in years to come.

Thanks dude.

Are you ever going to post again?

One word:

Thanks. It was far more frustrating when the converastion actaully took place. I was trying to cook him dinner and he kept leaving the table so he could stand to say these things to me.
