Send Some Happy

My son has been working the past few Saturdays and that doesn't sit well with Hope. She wants her morning cartoon time with him and eating Cheerios without Daddy just isn't the same.

One of the few benefits of all this endless instant technology is that it allows Daddy to stay in touch. Yesterday he sent these two photos to Mom's phone so Hope could see that he was busy working to help the most important of "people"



Hope was thrilled

In reality my son got caught up in some promo on the streets of NYC while trying to get lunch. He told me the hoots he was getting for posing with Elmo were worth it for Hope.

Hope's Saturday fun continued when she went to her cousin's bowling party.



I love how she celebrates
The photo immediately made its way to Daddy at work with the message "I made the bowling ball move!"

Send someone something happy today.

Lovely shots! Unfortunately I don't have a mobile so I can't send anything happy that way, but there's always emailing!

Happy Sunday to you!

Cool! I can see why she misses her Daddy, but now they can be "together" at least a little bit. Love the pictures.

I love instant technology! I don't have a smart phone, but I just sent camera photos of Josy the cat to her real owner, Jake.
What great photos for Daddy to send to Hope!

I'm happy for Elmo this time of year. At least the costume isn't too hot.

Some say Elmo is evil, but when it's something that brings a smile to a child's face then it's all good with me! :-)

Lovin' the action shot of Hope! Yay!

Ah Hope, she brightens up Monday mornings like no one else .. there are always Disney characters hanging out in Times Sq waiting for tourists to pose with them or just snap them on their own .. I love the look on his face in the pose with My Kitty!

Marg said...

Those are such fun pictures especially of hope doing the bowling thing.Too cute DAddy and Elmo. Take care.

Linda said...

That's so great that your son took the time to send Hope some happy knowing that she was sad that Daddy couldn't be there with her. What a great father he is!

Only the coolest dads are willing to pose with Elmo and Hello Kitty, just to send the pics to their daughters. And Hope bowling? Priceless!
