Here is what took place the other day...

Schoolwork was done. We were playing a game. Hudson wanted to cook something and decided he would make a Chocolate Cream Pie. As he was making it, he said, "This is Dad's favorite dessert, right?"  I said, "Yep!". He then decided he would surprise him with it after dinner. Then the girls chimed in and said, "Let's clean the house. Write him a letter of how much we love him. Give him the "special" plate and call him King for the Day." So, they all went to work. They even made him a crown to wear.

King for the Day


They put this sign on the garage door for him to see as he came home. It reads "King for the day ~ dadio"

Reading his notes               The Chocolate Cream Pie

The children were even talking about making this an official holiday and they would call it "King for the Day". 

It was a fun evening for all.  The only complaint Brian had was that he didn't know he was "king" until 5pm that night.  He would like to enjoy the whole day as King and take full advantage of its perks  :)

I liked the day b/c I got a clean house and I was, by default, the Queen!
