Donuts with Dad

Jim and Maddox had "Donuts with Dad" this morning at the preschool. Maddox filled out a questionaire about are his answers....

My Dad, by Maddox 4-14-10

My dad's name is JIM
His hair is BROWN and his eyes are BLUE
His favorite food is DEER and he likes to drink MILK
My dad's job is A FIREFIGHTER
My dad's favorite show on TV is TO WATCH DEER
My favorite thing to do with my dad is TO GO TO THE GYM
I love my dad because HE IS SO SWEET.

Pretty accurate, I'd say!

Maddox said Daddy ate all the donuts, but he didn't eat any (surprise, surprise!). Jim said it was a sweet morning with his little guy. He also received a framed poem with Maddox's footprint. Here's the poem (get your tissue ready)...


"Walk a little slower, Daddy," said a child so small.
"I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see.
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you."
