You know you're a parent if:

6. You have ever spent a significant part of a Saturday morning looking for half of a tiny, broken plastic heart, which has enormous significance to somebody who's a bit smaller than you are.

HA! Now, you see, if you had gled that to your finger with the dinosaur leg, you'd know where it is!

That should be glued : )

I'm with Anna. All odds and sods of plastic bits of toys should be glued to the father's body so as not to be lost.

Um, yeah. I'm divorced. Why do you ask?

And untypeable - fwlmaupo was the next one. Means 'couldn't type the fist vw, dagnabbit!'

Or even the 'first' one.

Anna - I hadn't considered that. Maybe next time... or possibly not.

Aaaaah.

Makes me want to Skype my Daddy and tell him I love him.

Not that he ever hunted for my bits of broken toy. But he was useful in other ways. Such as.... ummmm.....

Well, I love the old codger, anyway, and I'm off to Skype him, so there.

7.and by the time you've found that pink bit of plastic, the smaller person has completely forgotten about it.

True, true...

Hm, Blogger comments seem somewhat broken... it says there are three, but I'm seeing, um, twelve.

Ah well, it is what it is I suppose.

I dunno, leave out the 'plastic' and that's quite poignant.

Or he could have been hunting for my heart, then you could leave the plastic in. No. Wait. Then you'd have to add the word 'black'.

Never mind.

vw - bjhlce - I ain't sayin' nuttin' 'bout that.
