Topic tags/keywords: dad stamp mom

I’m challenging all of you to come up with a “Dad Stamp.” I don’t have a requirement on what the stamp should be, just something that lets people know that, “I’m a dad, and I’m proud of it.”

“Where did this inspiration come from,” you may ask. This morning I showed up to work wearing the remains of glittery fingernail polish on my nails because one of our girls told me, “Daddy. Sit down. I want to make you pretty.” I can’t say how proud I am to show off my nails this morning.

While you’re at it, don’t forget the “Mom Stamp.”

When mine were real little I just figured a little baby puke on my shirt was a badge of honor. Of course, everyone I worked with just figured out it was baby puke. Oh well.

I usually get a nice big drool ring followed by smattering of boogers on my shoulder in the morning when I get my son from his crib and he lays his head down on my shoulder for about 15 minutes afterwards.

Also the various bruises and lumps on my face and body are also my other badges from flying toys thrown at me by him…people probably think me and my wife get in fist fights but CPS hasn’t been called on us yet so we must be doing something right lol.

Three beautiful, conservative, gun-toting girls who can fix their own cars. That’s the stamp I leave in this world!
