Last year Papa Bear turned 48 and we celebrated with all those candles! This year, Sissy and I solved that problem with (I kid you not) 4 inch tapers. Yes, they had 4 inch tapers at the party store and we shelled out the almost 5 bucks for them. It was worth it – a cake with no wax is much more tasty.
Papa Bear and I have had some especially good times the last several months. I am learning to rely on him more. I am learning to appreciate him more and manage him less. (This is very difficult for a first-born nerd with a little OCD.) I love him. completely. all of him. with all of me. When I think of him, I smile. Here are 49 Papa Bear words, in no particular order.
crinkly-eyed, handsome, warm, cuddly, comfortable, capable, tough, strong, loud, witty, goofy
snoring, fixing, cooking, mopping, working, mowing, washing & waxing, building, buying, watching
playing, loving, listening, pitching & catching, chasing, tickling, teasing, joking, laughing, sleeping, hugging
