48

i must beg your pardon

please
please
please 
excuse my delay

guess we have been off in la la land
enjoying every second having
daddy'o  back on the scene

i just couldn't pull myself away
for one single second
to record a thing

so let's catch up:

today is a special day over here

 today marks 
mr. man's birthday
 
i know.

first homecoming,
then birthday
big 
big 
celebrations 
all 
around

can you see the smiles 
plastered on our faces?

  
the girls and i tried to get
as dolled up as we could
for the big welcome

this was us a little over a week ago

obviously off in 
family land
enjoying all the wonderfulness that
having the five of us together again

soccer
track
eating in
eating out
daddy's weekend waffles
 big bed
 non-stop laundry cycles
*thank you, honey, for being the laundry guy.
we and our clean clothes thank you
morning notes

and that's just off the top of my head

 now we get to wish him
a happy birthday
48
 
holy cow
that's almost 
half a century

tonight 
we will eat pizza
surround mr man with 
as much love and adoration 
as this family can muster

and of course 
our 
around the table
staring mr man himself
always the best part
happy birthday, honey.
we love you to no end

and welcome home, sailor
