Daddy Heaven is....

....when the baby wants to hold hands while walking.

....when the baby falls asleep on his shoulder.

.... watching Blues Clues together.

.... hearing your child say "daddy" and mean you.

.... getting that belly laugh after you say "I'm gonna getchoo!"

.... throwing soft giant blocks around the room together.

.... watching the baby's eyes light up when he sees a stuffed dog, and watching him hug and smile and kiss the dog.

.... spending 2.900 dinar on a stuffed dog. (That is $7.71 US)

.... seeing the baby sleep just like his daddy with his arm over his eyes.

.... being smacked in the head 40,000 times with a yellow balloon during lunch and not even caring about it.

.... taking 30 minutes to walk to the grocery store instead of five because we're looking at every person, bicycle, brick, ant and plant along the way.

.... making a noise and having the baby copy you.

.... having chest hairs pulled out because the baby is scared of oncoming traffic and hugs tight to you for safety.

.... making a grilled cheese sandwich, eating the crust and giving the good part to the baby.

.... teaching the baby the appropriate sounds for his new toy cars, and having him listen, copy and learn. and then eat the car.
