    For the Dads of little girls.

    This isn't me, thought it could be. If you've got a young daughter (or three) at home, I'm sure you can relate.

    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: For the Dads of little girls.

    In early March, we had 13 of our 15 granddaughters (ages 14 mos to 19 yrs) and the one severely outnumbered grandson here for the weekend with their families. For a "quiet" time, we arranged most of them on two couches in front of the big TV, and played "Frozen" for them. Quiet? Yeah...not so much. The film has not been out that long, but those little princesses knew every song, and sang along. And they only sing at one volume: full.

    Aw, hell...it was pretty adorable... :)

    Re: For the Dads of little girls.

    Tonight, my three year old informed me that I had to take her to a "wedding" up on the second floor of our house. It wasn't her wedding, but the wedding of two of her friends from pre-school that I've never met. I had to hold her purse when she asked, and dance with her at her request. She criticized the way I walked her down the aisle, and got mad at me for talking too much and drinking too much tea. The event ended with her getting angry and going to bed.

    I really want to know where my wife found the time to teach her all that stuff.

    Oh dear God, this. I love my little girl with all my heart, but 6AM is for sleeping not singing.

    My thoughts exactly. It's a helluva lot more fun if you go into Saturday mornings assuming she going to be cranky and then relishing when she's not. Put the coffee down and get on the floor with her.

    Girls seem to have "terrible 3's" instead of 2's. He's lucky she was in a good mood and not bossing him around at that age.

    Switch coffee for whiskey. And good luck.

    My 6 year old just managed to talk for 12 and a half hours during a 10 minute car ride. I'm pretty sure she was determined to use every word in her substantial vocabulary at least 3 times.

    Re: For the Dads of little girls.

    With three girls at home ages; 9, 6, and 3 this is my life. Most of the time they are in dance outfits and listening to Frozen. I wouldn't want it any other way. I love my girls.
