The boy and I were in the kitchen tonight telling knock knock jokes after dinner. He's 4, you understand. Well they were kind-of funny but after each one he told me he asked me to do one more. This went on for several rounds. The last one I made up for him was an original. It went like this;

Me: Knock Knock
Boy: "Who’s There?"
Me. "Ach"
Boy: "Ach-Who?" (Sound of a sneeze)
Me: "Gazuntite & God bless you!"

Well that, he thought, was pretty funny. So funny he pushed his legs forward while he was laughing. So hard in fact his stool went backwards. I leapt across the counter but just missed getting enough of his pant leg to stop the fall. Although the crying was quite dramatic he was more startled and scared than hurt. I took him into the living room for a little TLC. By his request I got him his Spiderman pillow and tractor blanket. All the commotion made him fall asleep in the pose I present here.

I love being a dad.

AAAAAAwwwww! He is so darling! What a beautiful pic! You were able to capture his apparent purity and angelic features on the outside and the pic of you and him kissing captured the it's essence coming from within. Have you ever considered possibly submitting your photos to a magazine or such? Definitely, parent magazine would love the one above. He looks like a cherub.
