The Unbearable Banishment: Not a fair fight. Not even close.

Not a fair fight. Not even close.

3-Year Old Daughter was Snow White for Halloween.

Right after I took this, she laid the old "Daddy, I love you" routine on me.

This is SO unfair. How am I suppose to put up any kind of resistance? In the immortal words of Ed Grimley, I'm as doomed as doomed could be.

She is really darling!

It's been 19 years since I had a three year look at me that way.

I miss those days...

SO sweet. Forget the fight, and surrender.

Although, you already have, haven't you.

Give me a break, I must say.

That's totally decent.

Happy Samhain!

Daisy: Don't act so innocent. I'm betting you did the same thing to your poor father.

GOTJ: If you REALLY miss them, you're more than welcomed to mind this little monster while Mrs. Wife and I step out for a night or two.

Leah: I have not yet begun to fight. (Famous last words.)

Jimmy: I will heed your words and embrace these times.

Rob: Give YOU a break?!?! What about ME!? She's making me mental. Had to look up "Samhain."

HIF: Please don't say that so loud. Don't even think it. She has a fish, Dennis. That's as far up the pet evolutionary ladder as we'll get.

And it still works!

Scary, isn't it, how they come into the world knowing exactly what to say and do where daddy is concerned. My daughter is 12, and my husband threw in the towel 12 years ago.
You've got the prettiest little snow white ever. And you don't stand a chance. :)

I'm with Franklin! Despite your protestations! At the very least a puppy that will grow to the size of a small pony!

haaaaahaaaahaaa! You are a trapped man! :)

At least if you were going to hell in a handbasket, it will be in the hands of the most adorable Snow White ever!

P.S. I still have that puppy dog look in my arsenal and actually had to pull it out two days ago... "uhm, Dad? my car is making this swooshy sound? *tilts head ever slightly to the left* uhm...can you please take it to the garage and have it fixed? Pretty please? *bats eyelashes*"

Two days later and a $500 dollar alternator and fan belt that my Dad paid for...

Map: Don't tell me anything more. I want it to be a surprise.

Lori: I blame your gender. You get it from your mothers and you passed it on to your daughters.

Nurse: I initially misread your comment as, "what a puppet," which is exactly how I am played.

Ellie: You can both get your own damn horse. Leave me out if it.

E: I can TOTALLY picture you pulling that nonsense on your poor defenseless father. He and I should form a support group.

the best part is she looks so innocent and yet we know what a troublemaker she really is. (see the dining room curtains, for example.)

Is that any way to speak to me and Ellie?? Bwaaahaahaa!

Oh she won't grow out of The Look. Me and my sister (25 and 29) employ The Look on a regular basis with our dad. Usually accompanied by "can i have a lift to..."
