Daddy, where’s my socks?
I don’t know little one, where did you take them off?
Are they inside?
NO! (with a smile)
Are they outside?
NO! (with a laugh)
I don’t have them! … …Daddy Up!
His arms reach toward me an expectant look on his little face and I smile, bend over and lift him into my arms. He smiles and looks into my eyes…
Daddy, I don’t have my socks. I want them! …please.
Well, little one, lets see what we can see…OK?
Uh-Oh…I see your socks!
Oooh…where are they?
Over there! (I point)
(smiling and tickling)
I wonder how they ever found there way into the dog’s water bowl?
How Daddy….How? (laughing)
