"Go Fly A Kite"

Recently, a blogging pal of mine over at Dad-Blogs, Out-Numbered offered up one of the most brutally honest postings on a blog I have ever read: things-that-suck-about-having-kids. You HAVE to read his writings...clever, humorous and completely direct. Personally, I live vicariously through his musings :-) So many things we really want to convey as parents about our children, however, most of us choose to remain 'PC'...Parentally Correct".

So, in honor (or in spite) of Jason, his amazing blog, & Fatherhood Friday, I am submitting for your entertainment....a "cutesy pictures of birthday parties, messy cupcake faces or first poop poops on the potty" Video.

We have a grassy "wash" area near our home, and recently our friend Nancy was out and about with her kids, flying a really cool kite. It has been fairly windy around here lately, as is the norm for this time of year.

Bella was absolutely mesmerized by the bright colors of their kite, the fact that it was flying 'like a butterfly' and of course, that Bailey & Harrison were at the helm of something so fun!

Of course, she HAD to have one. Of course, Daddy HAD to get her one. Of Course, I DID!

The video below is the outcome of that recent purchase. We had just come from a Starbucks run, and Bella, knowing the kite was in the house, noted the windy conditions. (like she is a weather person n the making). We get out of the car and Bella says: "Wow, Daddy, ish windee. Please, Please, kite, with Bailey n Harrishon n Nanshee" (she talks that way at times, mostly when she is excited about something...her words include SH allot). Daddy puts the kite together, (surprisingly easy) and off we go.

Had a great included!

There is music involved, so turn it down, turn it up...either way...enjoy my submission to cuteness!

Dude. First of all... Thanks soooo much for the shout out. That was awesome! Second of all... So friggin' cute. Third of all... I had a video just like that but my holder one started choking the little one about 12 seconds in so we had to stop. Peace.

Oh. My. Head. Cuteness OVERLOAD!

My favorite part was right in the beginning where she's running with the kite and then just stops. I placed the internal monologue as:

"Yay! I'm flying a kite! I'm flying a kite! I'm flyin... OH! Something on the ground! I'm going to pick it up"

Thanks for posting that video - totally made my day.

David said...

I hope I get to experience some of this fun parenting when we have a child (crossing fingers).
