birthday greetings from The Kidling

I was just putting away birthday cards from The Mama and The Dada’s birthdays… in February… when I saw the card Alice and I made for her dad. A bit of background. When we make cards, The Kidling is the writer and artistic director and The Mama is in charge of production.

I folded a piece of white cardstock into four panels in that way one folds white cardstock whilst making a card. Alice then selected and placed a large assortment of stickers on all four panels.

A minimalist she is not.

The vast majority of the stickers have captions. Things you might expect, for the most part. The horse, for example, says, “Neigh” and the cat, “Meow.” A selection of cats and dogs adorns an inside panel. There is a cat labeled “Mom,” another marked “Dad,” and a third identified as “Baby and Kid.” And the two dogs are tagged “Dad dog,” and—my personal favorite—“Dad dog. Mom, actually.”

As good as the sticker captions are, nothing beats the greetings. The front reads, “It’s a very special day. He’s so lucky to get so much stickers from his sweet little Alice.”

The inside?

“I love you sweet little Dada. Who is actually big.”

A happy birthday indeed. God I love this kid.

    • Shucks.

      Who am I kidding? I write a blog about my kid; there is no need to pretend to be modest. She is pretty damn fabulous, isn’t she?

      Thanks for noticing.
