This is your father you’re talking about

I am feeding Swee’Pea and TheMonk their vegetables during dinner. Swee’Pea is in a playful mood and pretends to be asleep every time I turn my attention to her. Since it looks like fun, I pretend to be asleep too. Swee’Pea gets a kick out of this and we both begin to pretend we are asleep. Neither of us are very good at it, however, as we keep catching each other with one eye open.

To have a little fun, I start making silly faces every time I catch Swee’Pea with her one eye open.

Swee’Pea, however, is not having this.

“No, Daddy. No being silly.”

Um, Sweetie, I hate to break this to you but this is your Daddy you’re talking to.

I’m afraid you’ll just have to get used to the silliness.



  1. Why didn’t you post the funny face?

  2. Wait a few more months, Matthew. It gets even worse. Now, my (almost) 3-year-old daughter will look me straight in the eye, shake her head, and say, “Daddy, stop being so goofy, ok?”

    In my head, I always reply, “Hah! You think I’m being silly now? Wait until you get older and your boyfriend’s start coming over. Then, I’ll show you goofy.”

  5. Daughters are notorious for telling their dads what’s too silly for them. Just ask mine. :)
