Mr. Daddy's Lucky Little Guy

I love my father as the stars - he's a bright shining example and a happy twinkling in my heart.  ~Terri Guillemets

A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty. ~Author Unknown

The words that a father speaks to his children in the privacy of home are not heard by the world, but, as in whispering-galleries, they are clearly heard at the end and by posterity.  ~Jean Paul Richter

Why are men reluctant to become fathers?  They aren't through being children.  ~Cindy Garner

My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard.  Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass."  "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply.  "We're raising boys." ~Harmon Killebrew

Happiest Father’s Day Mr. Daddy.  I do believe fatherhood looks good on you.

Your little guy adores you.

If he grows up to be anything like you, there is one lucky girl somewhere in the world.

I wondered about the one picture without the "youngest kid" in it, but then noticed the little hand on Mr. Daddy's arm...
