Sammi always tells me that I am the 'best dad ever'. The other day, my mom and I were sitting in her kitchen as Sammi sat next to us coloring a picture, when my dad came in from outside.
Me: "Sammi, did you know that my dad is the best dad ever?"
Sammi (without looking up from her coloring book): "No he isn't. You're the best dad ever."
Me: "I know you like to tell me that, but when I was a little boy, I always thought that my daddy was the best dad ever."
Sammi: "Well you were wrong. He's not the best - you are."
Me: "That's awfully nice of you to say to me, but who do you think taught me to be such a good daddy?"
Sammi looked up from her coloring book. She looked over at my dad and then shrugged, "From Grandma, of course."
