Happy Father's Day - OH DEAR GOD.

I hope everyone had a really happy, super special Father's Day. My youngest child, the precious little cupcake, drew her father a picture of a happy butterfly as his gift. Here it is.

Oh I know. This is not a butterfly. THIS IS NOT A DANG BUTTERFLY.  And because I am slightly assholic, I allowed my daughter to present this drawing to her father just to see what his reaction would be. [[Insert evil giggles]]

Imagine if someone handed you a tampon and was like: "SURPRISE!!! Do you LOVE it?!" and you were like "What the...? Is that a...? OH DEAR GOD. Noooo!! GAHHH!!" and all you wanted to do was get it as far away from you as possible. But because the person who gave it to you was your beloved, little child - you had to pretend like it was a precious Faberge egg and maybe even hug it a little?


Best Father's Day gift ever.

PS: Just letting you know I'll be taking the week off to spend time with family coming to see us. See you next week, hookers!

My good friends Thom and his wife Special K shared this fantatsic Father's Day card with me. Let's read their description first, shall we?

Notice the pictures at the top and bottom. On the top is a Triceratops and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And the bottom one is a Phillies hat, labeled appropriately with a "p".

It's wonderful. In fact it's dino-tastic. Because apparently it's not just my kid. WIN.

  1. I would totally frame that! Enjoy your family time.

    1. Oh ditto. Framing NEEDS to happen. He could hang it in his office, and when people question, he could get all indignant and be all "how DARE you. My beloved youngest child drew this beautiful butterfly for me as a celebration of father's day. Pervert."

  2. Oh my goodness... I needed a good laugh today! Best Father's Day gift EVER.

  3. That is awesome! Thanks for making me laugh! :)

  4. Butterfly or is certainly "happy" .........

  5. There's a site where you can have them turn your child's drawings into keychains, jewelery, whatever:

  6. Oooo! One of those as a pendant. What a fabulous idea. And cufflinks!

  7. Bwahahahahahhahahhhhhhaaaaaa! So awesome I can't even breathe. Please keep that for her when she gets older.

  8. Is it framed and hanging over the mantle yet?

    Just e-mailed you a picture my 7-year old son spent an hour drawing for me. No words. Except that mummy has a dirty mind.

  9. Oh thank you, thank you, thank you! You don't know how much I needed a good belly laugh on this horrible monday morning. Thank you again!

  10. When my oldest was learning to write words, she was asked me how to spell the color blue. I instructed her to sound it out. When she was done, she proudly handed me her paper with her three favorite words: Mommy Blow Daddy. I stifled the laugh and filled it away for another day.

  11. You HAVE to check this artist out, he took children's drawings and pianted them to look "real" I would LOVE to see what he would do witht his one LOL

  12. lol. I love this. It's so...artsy and abstract and very, very much from a toddler. :)

  13. Omg, that is too, too much. I'm laughing so hard that my 6-mo old son, who is in my Beco carrier in front of my face, almost choked from giggling in return.

  14. awesomeness! love the "butterfly."

  15. Ruined my mascara, but that's ok. Laughed so hard I cried. Again. Like when I read the post before this one. Wonderful!
