To Papa ~

I am not quite sure why, but it is so incredibly satisfying and sweet to see your parents playing with – and really enjoying – your children. Maybe it is that whole “full circle of life” thing or something, but it really makes me so happy to see how excited my parents get when the girls visit.

(Yeah, I’ve so been replaced. I could ship the girls back to Michigan without J. or I, and I don’t think anyone would even notice! But you know, I’m ok with that, too.)

As a father, my dad is great.  But he is an even better “Papa.”

All of his girls adore him.

And today we are sending him lots of birthday love. And good wishes for a great year.

Happy Birthday, Papa! We love you!
