Donuts With Dad

Judd went to Manila last Saturday. When he booked his trip, he was supposed to stay an entire week coming back tomorrow. However, Charlotte brought an invitation home to Donuts with Dad a couple of weeks ago, so he changed his plans and came back yesterday. I can't believe he changed his plans and went half way around the world 2 days early, but he said he wasn't going to miss Donuts with Dad for the world. He has his priorities set pretty darn well if you ask me.

This morning I heard her door open, footsteps running down the hall, the toilet flush, then footsteps running back down the hall and the door to her room close again. I knew what was going to emerge, and sure enough, about 10 minutes later a little girl came out dressed head to toe in red - Judd's favorite color. She was supposed to dress in her dad's favorite color for his special day at her school.

They went off happily together to school. Poor Max was left crying for Daddy. He said, "I want muffins too". It's a good thing he didn't realize it was donuts and not muffins or else he'd probably still be crying.

Judd came home about an hour later with a "tie" that Charlotte had made, a coffee mug, and other drawings and pictures. Our favorite picture is one where she is going out to dinner with him. She is holding pink flowers in her hand (because he brought her flowers before their 'date'). Judd looks very tall in the picture and he has all of these lines coming out of his arms and legs. I asked her what that was and she said, 'his hair." Its funny to me the things she notices.
