That is possibly the cutest text conversation in history - bonus points for not a single autocorrect fail. :-P

Happy birthday to Kidlet: the eldest.

awesome. Lucky you - and her :)

That's an awesome conversation, something I don't and can't have with my dad because we're not that close. Happy birthday to her! I know the years go by quickly, but she will remember and thank you for making each one a great one.

Elise Fallson said...

So awesome. It's really great you two are close. Hope she has a fantastic birthday! (:

Nate Wilson said...

And now I have a new goal to strive for with my son. Well done.

I hope the entirety of your daughter's birthday is as fantastic as that conversation.

This absolutely made my day! I hope when my little girl turns seventeen she's as as cool as your daughter! We're on the right track, as we watched CHAMBER OF SECRETS yesterday. :-)

Happy birthday to your girl!

Your little girl is so lucky to have such a handsome man as her father. That means she's going to be a knockout when she's an adult.

Kelly Polark said...

How wonderful that you and your daughter are so close.
Enjoy her special day!!

Fantastic. My second eldest just turned six and we spent part of the day building Star Wars Lego. Amazing? Yes.
