Your daughter is a gem. Her exuberant personality comes through in the pictures.
My wife was an editor at a small town paper. She’s had her picture taken a number of times for various reasons. We both noticed that the pictures that were taken by people who liked her were more flattering.
It’s cool. We know your daughter ghost writes for you too.
How much more mature she looks now that she’s eight.
Seconding all the comments. She’s a darling. Wife ain’t bad either.
You’re a lucky man.

Athena: MOM!(three syllables), Daddy’s making Jeff sit down for a Whatever interview and pictures before he’ll let us go to the prom! Make him stop.
Forgot to say that’s 9 or 10 years from now.
Nah, more than likely John’ll be like I was when mine came of dating age … I suddenly felt it necessary to be cleaning sidearms in the living room when said PFK (Pimply Faced Kids) showed up with designs on my daughter’s virginity.
i never understand why dad’s are so concerned about their daughter’s virginity… safety, yes. future, yes. virginity? por quoi?
I think I like Athena-the-rock-goddess best.
You realize, you have created a moral commitment to keep doing this until Athena reaches her majority, at least.
Well, no. As soon as Athena gets self-conscious about it, it stops.
