Daddy's Tribute

Well the day has finally arrived.....



Our little miracle is turning 4 today, I view this day with both trepidation and anticipation...



Trepidation, because this has been an effective form of control for the last several days...



A quick "good boys get birthdays, bad boys get none", has work like a charm while trying to get a rambunctious little one to settle down in any given situation....



Now that quite effective parenting tool will not be as effective for at least eleven and a half months.



Anticipation, because it means another step in the miraculous journey of life with Itty Bit.



Henry David Thoreau, said once:

 
"The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it."



Maybe that's why we think our kids are priceless....LOL



So Happy Birthday Itty Bit.....To us you are priceless....



Have a Great and Blessed day....

"Good boys get birthdays, bad boys get none" does work well for 2 weeks. We found for the next 50 weeks you can use "If you want to live to see your next birthday..."

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy! What a blessing you are. You were placed in just the right family for you - your Mama & Daddy will raise you right. May your day be filled with blessing upon blessing, because that is what you are. And lots of noisy toys. Because I won't have to listen to them tomorrow at 6 AM! Love you Rach!

I'm sorry... I'm having trouble processing Mr. Daddy's 'George Clooney' look in photo #2.

The very happiest of HAPPY BIRTHDAY'S to Itty Bit!!!

PS ~ There's plenty of other stuff to hold over their heads as they get older. Don't worry. :)

GunDiva said...

Brandi - I'm so with you! It's nice to know I wasn't the only one who thought, "George Clooney's holding Itty Bit?"

Happy Birthday, Itty Bit. Pretty soon we'll have to start calling you Big Bit or something equally annoying :)

Mrs Mom said...

Happy Birthday Itty Bitt!!!

From one Mom with a four AND a five year old.... well... I agree with Bill ;)

Foursons said...

I had to go back and look at the George Clooney look Brandi spoke of. Hahahaha

Happy 4th Birthday Itty Bit! May the Lord bless you with many, many more. You are such a blessing to your parents and family. And don't listen to Dad, he would've given you the grandest of birthdays no matter what your behavior. :)

Stacy said...

Happy birthday to your little guy! I'm glad I'm not the only mean parent to use gifts as a form of negotiation for good behavior. ;)

Big Mama Cass said...

Mr Daddy you should so have your own blog... you have an amazing way with words! Good stuff!

melody said...

Itty Bit, happy belated birthday. The fact that you bless every moment of your parents' lives is clear.

Mr. Daddy, you're a breath of fresh air and reason tossed with a gentle bit of insanity. (it's a good thing)
