Favorite Thing

During the week I pick The Mayor and The Rooster up from daycare and we go to the commuter rail station to pick up K.

Then we go home and let the chaos of the 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. mayhem overtake our family.

The other night I was busy assembling a curried cauliflower thing while K fixed dinner for the kids.

The Rooster was "helping" K and they were talking.

"What did you do at school today, Rooster?" he asked her.

"Um," she said.

"Did you swing?"

"Yeah!"

"Did you slide?"

"Yeah!"

"Did you play with your friends?"

"Yeah!"

"What was your favorite thing that you did today, Rooster?"

"See Daddy!"

Smart girl.

She is well on her way to wrapping him solidly around her little finger forever.

Oh, we wimmins and our wiley ways...

I am happy with both my boys. If I had a girl, I would totally wrapped arounf her finger. DraMa even knows it. Phew, dodged that bullet. I think Rooster should meet Budski.

Chrissy said...

She is adorable!
If my little prince ever says anything like that to Daddy, he would be wrapped around his finger instantly - we are currently in the "I want nothing to do with Daddy" phase.

Abbynormal said...

That is soooo cute. She's adorable.

Mandy said...

Oh yeah, little girls have a way of doing that with their daddies. With those pretty little eyes, how could your hubby ever say no?

Woman with kids said...

She's adorable... and oh so smart.

Smart answer there, Rooster.

Those eyes...man, they're stunning.

SciFi Dad said...

somehow I suspect he already was wrapped around her little finger before she said that...

Super B's Mom said...

Who couldn't fall in love with those eyes?? As will say the crowd of boys lined up outside your front door when she is 16...

My goodness that child is gorgeous.

liv said...

What an amazingly gorgeous girl! Love those eyes!

Our Family said...

love the pink cheeks!

Blog Antagonist said...

Well I can't imagine why a face like that would melt his heart. He must be a complete and total marshmallow.

Patience said...

"Curried cauliflower thing"??? Oh my. Can I eat with the kids??

Adorably cute pic of an even adorably cuter doll!

Kristi said...

Oh my heavens, that girl is scrumptious. Truly truly scrumptious.

The cuteness! It's overwhelming!

She's definitely a girl. ;)

Couldn't you just look at this picture *all day*?

Kris H. said...

I am a brand new reader (I found you about a week ago) and I haven't had time to play in your archives, so this is the first time I have seen a pic of The Rooster...OMG, she is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Stepping Over the Junk said...

Oh my, look at that sweet face!!! Great little eyes she's got.

I love cauliflower. I have an awesome baked cheese and cauliflower recipe..You bake the whole damn thing with this cheese mixture and it is gooey and yummy and fatty.

Pearls of Wisdom said...

Smart indeed, but also a sweet daughter who loves her dad that much!

P.S. She looks so much like you! Beautiful!

Leeanthro said...

Too cute!

My almost 3 year old told my bald husband that his head is a beautiful rock!

At least she didn't say it was filled with them!

Gingers Mom said...

Little girls are born with their daddy's tightly wrapped around their finger. I love it that way. She is GORGEOUS!

Jenny Ryan said...

The Sour Kraut said...

Oh, she's gorgeous! And sweet too.

So cute!

Lawyer Mama said...

How could he not be wrapped around her finger? She's adorable!

Missy said...

I'm just gasping at that gorgeous little face.

Of course she had daddy wrapped around her finger. The most natural thing in the world. I remember being in love with my daddy.

Yer warming the cockles of my heart, here.

Karen Forest said...

What is not to love about that face?

Last night our very own Miss L, while sitting at the table with her father, is acting like she is writing something on a piece of paper, all the while saying in her four year old voice, not "I love daddy", but "I love (insert his full name here)." It was heart warming.

He of course, bubbled over with happiness. Those little girls, they just do something to you.....

Dirty Birdie said...

Stop looking at me with those eyes, stop it I say! Those melty little baby eyes...STOP IT!!!

Oh the cuteness....

Queen Karana said...

Such a cutie! I love her little chubby cheeks. :)

Lotta said...

She is you and you is she. You look so alike. She is a DOLL! Oh, I wish we could do playdates.

Kelly said...

Beautiful picture. And a very smart girl..

wendy boucher said...

If Rooster ever loses her touch, Girlie can offer her free brush-up lessons. Not that Rooster can't get everything she wants just by looking so darn cute.

Shauna said...

Little girls.... they know exactly how to make Daddy's heart melt.

mel said...

Awww, how can you blame him. She's so sweeeeet.

Tracysan said...

Dangit, Ali, you took my comment word for word! Oh well...it's worth repeating--That's the cutest rooster I've ever seen!

Robin said...

What a cutie-pie! It's good that you're writing this stuff down. He's going to need these memories in about 11-13 years.

Mrs. Chicky said...

Ouch. My ovaries hurt. My lord she's cute.

Penny. said...

Sooooooooooooooooooo sweet!!

Mimi said...

Gosh, she's looking like you!

And my favorite part of the day is seeing Daddy, too :-)

notfearingchange said...

mcewen said...

Pretty damned hot reciprocal exchange there! Could she come and give my boys some remedial treatment?
Cheers

Jenifer said...

I think my ovaries just burst.

Rebecca said...

I love the way her expression is just saying "What??!" in such a 'wiley' way!

we call that time (5-7pm)
ARSENIC HOUR at our house.

EE said...

That is a Baby Gap model!!!

karrie said...

She is adorable. :)

Above Average Joe said...

Regarding being wrapped around their little fingers, when I get home from work, Peanut will run up to me and give me a big hug. I'm going to assume she's doing it with alterior motives in mind.

mommiebear2 said...

What a super cute little girl!!

carrie said...

Oh the power of the wimmins . . .

Katie has the same affect on her Daddy.

Kyla said...

My son knows how to do that, too. It is a gift. :)
