I woke this morning at 6AM to Caleb’s face in mine.  "Mom, can I wake up daddy and give him his present?"  "Caleb, it’s too early.  Let’s let Daddy sleep in.  Go back to bed."  I got a few more minutes of sleep before Andrew started singing in his crib.  The boys were up bright and early.  We made breakfast for Don – a sausage, onion, mushroom, and red pepper scramble.  Caleb couldn’t wait any longer to give his present, so he ran in and woke up Don.  An early but fun Father’s Day morning.


Caleb made this crown for Don as his Father’s Day gift.  He drew a picture of our family on the back.  On the front, he put #1 and Best above Dad, then "I love you Dad".  He wrote "Dad" in another place on the crown, but the first "D" looked like a "P".  Considering that "Pad" could have several meanings, some of which are not complimentary, I encouraged him to try to correct the "D".  Instead he chose to make it into a "B" and then circled the word and put a line through it.  He then added "Good" to the crown with a circle around it.  He said, "Dad is not bad.  He is good."  I was chuckling as I watched his little mind and hand at work.  He looked at me and asked, "Mom, are you laughing because I’m cute?"  My reply, "Yes Caleb, you are super cute!"  I love my boys so much — all three of them!  Happy Father’s Day, Don!  You’re truly the best!
