Well, I got in the last word tonight.
After we came back from her dance class tonight, I began to clean up the mess in the kitchen from making dinner. I was taking a pan off the range.
Little Cake Boss: “Papa, the stove top needs to get cleaned.”
Me: ………Silence… while I raise my eyebrows and stare at her… You know, the YOU clean it stare.
Little Cake Boss: She turns around and quickly prances away, doing some kind of ballet thingy.
Me: Priceless, I thought to myself. I got the last word in for once…
…until I realized she left, leaving me to clean the stove top.
Darn that girl. She got the last word in again.

わざわざお返事ありがとうございます。色々大変ですね（＞＜）どうか無理だけはせず、お身体を大切にしてくださいね。健康第一です！！ I realise it’s much easier said than done…
By the way, such a lovely photograph! I wish my father took photos like that for me 😉
I know what you mean!! Have your husband take a lot now! ☺
If my Papa or Mama had given that look I’d of been cleaning that stove top!!!!! SOMEONE knows how to dance around their Papa alright! 😉
She has your father’s facial features. That’s what struck me at first.
I love her character. She’s pretty clever.
I agree… and she knows that!
Look at that face – of course she’ll always get the last word 😀
Egads!!!! Oh, no! Lol
Now that made me smile…and I have to fess up. I had my wonderful dad wrapped around my finger when I was a little girl. Best thing about it was that it helped me grow up being happy and confident…and I never once felt that I should settle for a man who was any less enamored of me. Best thing a girl can have going for her is a loving papa…and I can tell by the way you write about her that you’re just that! A fun read!
Aw, thanks Dr. Lynn! But unlike you, parenting doesn’t come naturally for me… I wish there was a guidebook – preferably one written by Marines! ☺
Thank you for sharing this fun story. It brightened my day.
I’m glad it did,Russ! Thanks!
Haha, yes, that cuteness helps them get away with stuff! She’s adorable. My daughter says, “Yeah, yeah, I’ll do it later,” as she prances out the door. Adding, “I love you, Momma.” Grrrr.
LOL, Linda. You too, eh? And as they say in Japanese, 御無沙汰しております。御免ね！
Ah, the child is father (or in this case, mother) to the man! Enchanting picture, BTW. She is drop-dead gorgeous, isn’t she?
Sir, you are too kind! Thank you very much… but she is now a total girlie. Headache time for dads. 🙂
it is a good photo – and whew – these teen years are layered – and hope the stove came out spic and span! and shows how you so well seem to know – that when we are raising “leaders” there is always this give and take…
