She got me.

I have this little song I sing to my daughter. It's very short and it goes like this: "Her name is Arianna and I love her so much."

I told you it was short.

Every once in a while, I shake it up and change the last part to "...and I love her 20%." She always laughs and corrects me and it's always big fun for us.

Except that today she looked up at me with a big grin as I was stirring her chocolate milk and said, "Daddy, I love you 20%."

It turns out that to hear that is 98% hilarious and cute, but 2% of it kind of stings. ;)

I love this story! So cute!!
I know what you mean by the 2% sting, I've experienced that before, too.

I love this, too. You have a way of telling "daddy stories."

My daddy always made up songs for me, too. They were also short: "Daddy loves Holly, Daddy loves Holly, Daddy loves Holly, yes he do." And that was it. And it was enough.

Great post!

I'm not creative enough to make up a song for my girls. But I do sing David Wilcox's "Burgundy Heart-Shaped Medallion" it, too, is short and sweet. Also, Buffett's "Little Miss Magic."

David and I have this book called "Guess how much I love you" it's too cute. I'm guessing your little one would love it!
