I asked the kids if they wanted to give Daddy a Father's day message on the blog, and here (word for word) is what they said.
Mary Grace: I love you most of all, Daddy. You are my favorite. I love that you fix all my toys. I'm thankful because of my Daddy because he gave me the bamboo a long time ago, and I still remember it. I want to take you to see the Shrek movie for your next birthday if it's still in the theater. Or, maybe we can go get the movie if it's out on DVD, and we can watch it with Daddy. I love you forever and ever and ever for all the things you do with me, like taking me to the Science Cafe and taking me to go launch rockets, go on vacation, wrestle, and robots! Most of all, thank you for getting me the robots and thank you for taking me every place I like.
Claire: I love you after and always. (I think she means "forever and ever and always," like the book. :) I asked her if she wanted to say anything else, and she repeated it three times, just like the book.)
Amy: Thank you, BJ, for being such a wonderful dad, and a wonderful husband. I love you.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Father's Day!
