Fatherhood Friday

The guys over at Dad-Blogs.com do a very cool thing every Friday to coordinate posts from some of the many Dads that blog out there. This is my first entry on a Fatherhood Friday but hopefully something I will be able to do each week. I’m up to my ears in conference calls today so this post will be short and sweet…..literally.

Basically it was a conversation that took place with our youngest child a few weeks ago. Those that know our youngest daughter know that she is a bit of  a card. She keeps us in stitches and is the one at the dinner table that provides the evening entertainment. She is also 4 years old…

So a few weeks ago, I picked her up from school (which is one of my favorite Daddy moments and one I don’t get to do often enough). As we were leaving the school, the following exchange took place.

Her: “Dad, I am now part of the Zip-Zip Club”

Me: “That is great! What is the Zip-Zip Club?”

Her: “It’s for all of the kids that can zip up their own coat”

Me: “Hey, I can zip up my own coat. Can I be a part of the Zip-Zip Club?”

Her: “Um Dad…It’s a small club”

Maybe you had to be there, but her response was priceless. I guess it takes more than just being able to zip up your coat to hang in the Zip-Zip Club. I’m also sure it won’t be the last time I won’t be invited to hang with one of my kids in their exclusive clubs. So it begins….

  1. Very cute post and story. Made me chuckle. My daughter is only 2, but we can start to see signs of a very outgoing and comical personality. I hope that when she’s 4 that she is as quick with a reply as your daughter.

  3. Thanks Rundad! I think Brad Paisley said it best when he sang:
    “I live for, little moments like that”.

    Just wait Functional Father, she will surprise you. They pick up on all the sarcasm and humor very quick and easily.
