She hit the nail on the head

My daughter is very much a typical “girly-girl.” Every day, she begs me to let her wear a dress. She loves to put on lip gloss and what she calls her “tappy” shoes. She carries around her pink and blue “Hello Kitty” purse filled with plastic jewerly. We talk about what she wants to do with her hair in the morning.

So, we were pleasantly surprised when we read Leah’s response to a questionnaire from her pre-school – What do you like to do with your Dad? This was all part of a Father’s Day project they were working on. Leah simple response was that she likes to help him with his tools. For all the girly-ness within her, she just loves playing with her Dad and his screwdrivers, wrenches and all the other greasy little tools she can get her hands on. That night, Joe cleaned out one of his old toolboxes, took Leah to Home Depot (in her overalls, of course) and together they began to fill it up with her “own” tools. Now she is very proud to explain to everyone about the various tools she keeps in HER toolbox. Don’t know how to use a nutdriver? She does…

    A nutdriver? Hmm. I think I know how to use one. What about a circular saw? Cuz I’m afraid I’ll cut my fingers off …
