So...Daddy has a forthcoming book in publication and he has to provide a bio for his About the Author page. It was proving to be a bit of a struggle, so I decided to let the girls take a stab at it. Here is what they came up with:
"P**** ******* likes to type, talk, and read his books and play with his little girls and keep the house neat and do shopping at Costco and type messages and look up on the Internet on the iPad. Daddy loves to play BeJeweled, Angry Birds Go!, and other kinds of Angry Birds games. He loves us so much and he takes care of us and likes to play with us. He also likes to play rugby and watch other sports on TV. Daddy is very friendly and he is the awesomest Daddy in the whole wide history of Daddies. Daddy works at the National Defense University and he loves work. He goes to work with a smile on his face and comes home with a smile on his face. Daddy is very smart and knows lots of countries. And he loves doing country puzzles with us and teaches us the countries at bedtime. We love Daddy!"
Brilliant! Couldn't have said it any better myself! Well...except maybe the "keep the house neat" part! Not sure where THAT came from. I think the girls might be under the impression that simply TALKING about cleaning the house makes their parents some sort of NEAT FREAKS or something! That is decidedly NOT the case with us...but...ah well...why burst the bubble of the little ones?
Anyway, I kind of think this is a much better and more accurate picture of Peter than the "official" bio that will be included in the book. So I wanted to preserve it here.
