Airplane: “You don’t have to take her up in an airplane.”
“But it’s her birthday. And I promised.”
“All right.”
Barbies: “You know you can tell her no, Babe.”
“And disappoint her? I’d rather chew my own arm off.”
“All right. I’ll get your Barbie shoes to match that dress tomorrow.”
Crayons: “You didn’t color as a child, did you?”
“I colored!”
“Then why are you still working on that Disney Princess coloring book when Grace left an hour and a half ago?”
Dad: “Danno, do you think it would be okay if I call Steve Dad?”
“Absolutely, Monkey. He’d be thrilled.”
“Me too.”
Erector set: “So this was yours when you were little?”
“Yeah, Gracie, it was.”
“Cool. Can we build another skyscraper for GI Joe to climb?”
“Whatever you want.”
Face paint: “I have to say, the daisy suits you, Babe.”
“Shut up Danno.”
“No really. I also like the little rainbow on your forehead.”
Glitter: “How was I supposed to know glitter wouldn’t come out of my hair?”
“Did I or did I not warn you not to let her anywhere near you with it?”
“Come here you big Goof. I’ll scrub it out for you.”
Hot rollers: “Monkey, Steve’s hair is really too short for you to curl it.”
“But he said he doesn’t mind.”
“All right. Just don’t burn him, please.”
Icing: “If Grace wants pink icing on these cupcakes then that’s what she’ll have.”
“I’m not questioning your culinary abilities, Babe. Just the amount you are putting on each one.”
“Well. She’s passing them out a school so we won’t have to deal with the sugar rush.”
“There is that.”
Justin Bieber: “I really am sorry.”
“It’s fine, Danno. The concert will only last, what, another hour?”
“Or two.”
“Yeah. Do you want me to take her for a while?”
“Nah. She’s fine. And if she’s on your shoulders, she won’t be able to see the stage.”
“That’s cold, Steve. Real cold.”
Kisses: “I guarantee these kisses will heal your boo-boo even faster than band-aids.”
“That’s what Danno always says.”
“And we know better than to argue with Danno.”
Laughter: “We’ve watched that movie at least 100 times with her.”
“I know. But it makes her so happy, I can’t help but laugh.”
“It’s a good look on you. Even better than the daisy or the rainbow.”
“You promised you’d never mention those again.”
“My bad.”
Milk and cookies: “You make the best chocolate chip cookies in the world, Dad.”
“Thank you Gracie-face.”
“Will you teach me to make them?”
“Of course. Any time.”
Nightmares: “It’s okay, Gracie. Dad’s got you.”
“You’re here.”
“Of course I am. You don’t need to cry.”
“I dreamed you left. And I never got to see you again.”
“It was just a nightmare, Baby. I’ll never leave you.”
Orange juice: “Juice from a carton is fine, Steve.”
“It’s not a problem. I have all these oranges already. And when you have a cold, you need fresh-squeezed.”
“I think you need to make it for her more than she needs to drink it.”
“You’re probably right.”
Pillow fights: “It only took me 20 minutes to vacuum them all up.”
“You are a marshmallow, my friend. A complete marshmallow.”
“And she surrendered.”
“You’re proud of beating Gracie in a pillow fight?”
“Proud might be a little strong.”
Quiche: “I had no idea she loved quiche. How did you know and I didn’t?”
“Did you ever ask her, Danno?”
“Well. No.”
Roses: “Where did you get all these roses?”
“I ordered them. From Jackson and Perkins.”
“That’s where the ones in front of my mom’s house came from.”
“I know. Grace picked them out.”
Sports: “You explained football, baseball, and hockey to her?”
“Yeah. She asked.”
“You don’t even like baseball or hockey.”
“But you do.”
Tiara: “I swear I will kill you in your sleep if you show anyone that picture.”
“You don’t scare me. You know that, right?”
“In your sleep, Danno. In your sleep.”
Unrequited love: “I know it hurts, Baby. I understand.”
“You aren’t going to kill him, are you, Dad?”
“Do you want me to?”
“I guess not.”
“All right.”
Valentine’s Day Dance: “I apologize, Governor. I have to cut our meeting short.”
“A prior commitment, Commander?”
“Yes sir. One I can’t be late getting to.”
“Very well. We’ll finish up tomorrow.”
“Thank you, sir.”
Walt Disney World: “I got to be honest, Babe. Never did I think I’d see you at Disney World.”
“I wasn’t going to let Grace come all this way without us.”
“And how exactly did she get to be the Grand Marshal of the parade?”
“Old Navy buddy?”
“Are you asking me or telling me?”
“It’s classified, Danno.”
“You are not nearly as cute as you think.”
“Yeah I am.”
X-rated movies: “I never meant for you to throw them away, Babe.”
“I know. But I’d rather get rid of them than risk Grace finding them.”
“Thank you.”
Yarn: “But she could decide tomorrow not to knit ever again.”
“I know that.”
“Then why did you order her cashmere yarn, Steve?”
“Because she said it would make a perfect scarf for you to wear when you visit your family in New Jersey.”
“Our family, Babe.”
Ziploc containers: “How many chocolate chip cookies did you send her?”
“Several. Dozen. Twelve dozen.”
“She’ll be home in another week.”
“But she misses our cookies.”
“She misses us more.”
“Not as much as we miss her.”
“You are right about that, Babe.”

That is wonderful! I laughed, I cried, I said "How clever!" right out loud! I tried to pick out my favorite, but I can't. Too many.

Maybe the "daisy or the rainbow" comes close, though, for laughs! And this one for feelings: “It was just a nightmare, Baby. I’ll never leave you.”

I like the daisy and rainbow too. And the nightmare made me feel all warm to write!

Thank you so much!

Oh,this was beautiful! So sweet and funny and touching and awww,Steve has so much love for Gracie!
I especially love the ones where Steve goes along with things like wearing a daisy and getting glitter on him,etc. because it's something Grace wants. And it was so sweet that he told the Governor he had to leave early when he wanted to go to the Valentine's Dance,and his reassurance to her that he wouldn't leave her brought tears to my eyes(and she calls him Dad <3).
Danny telling Steve it's "our family" got me all emotional,too-in a good way!

They share a great love! At least in my head that's the only way it can be. I hope the Governor didn't yell at Steve if he found out what his "prior commitment" was. I like to believe he'd approve!

Thank you so much!

Awww, these are so cute! You do have a great way of getting across so much with so little :)
Are 6 dogs too many?: 2 guystkeylasunset on January 12th, 2012 03:56 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The 'so little' is something of a miracle since I tend to go on and on and on. Writing these is good exercise for "short, sweet and to the point."

Thanks again!
