Bittersweet

Last January our Daddy's job went to Texas but we didn't so he's been home every day being a full time Daddy to us. We think this has been the purrfect situation but today he's starting school so once again won't be home all day. Although we're very, very proud of him for going back to school, we're all going to miss him. Maybe if we give him a really cute look he'll change his mind.
Yeah, I didn't think that'd work... Hey Angel, is there enough room in Daddy's backpack for so we can just go to school with him?
We've had a few too many treats to fit in this bag Isabella. Looks like we'll all just stay home and help Mommy work and send Daddy lots of luck as he goes back to school. We'll just have to take extra naps while he's gone!

Good luck Daddy! We love you and wish you the best!
All your favorite girls

That cute look would have worked on me girls! But your dad needs to go to school and it's a good thing even though you may not see it now. We wish him the best of luck. Just think. . . you'll get to 'help' him do homework!

Too bad you couldn't both fit inside the backpack. I'm sure you daddy would have loved to have taken you along with him.

Grampy said...

Sorry you didn't fit ladies. But the treats are worth it. Good Luck to Daddy.

Best wishes for your dad; I know he will do great!

Good luck to your Dad in his new venture. Going back to school is both exciting and a little scarey. I know you will give him a great welcome when he comes home.

Just what your daddy needs for his first day of school....a book bag full of kitties! We wish him lots and lots of luck!!

Hot Rocks said...

I am sure that Dad will do well in school. I bet he will miss you too!

Lin said...

When one door closes, another opens up! I think that is great that he is going back to school. What a great opportunity to meet new people and to learn new things. Who knows where that will lead him?!

As for being home alone--my kitties LOVE that we are gone all day so that they can sleep in peace. :)

The Monkeys said...

We're wishing your Daddy good luck too! You definitely have reason to be proud!

We also think he needs a bigger backpack!

I'm reminded of the song Mary Had a Little Lamb...the lamb couldn't go to school, and you two need to stay right where you are. lol Besides if you're gone who's gonna guard the house?

Good luck at school.
Sandy

Good luck to your Daddy! My hubby goes to school every day - he teaches at a university! I wish him lots of luck as he starts a new adventure!

Anya said...

Gooooood luck for your Daddy :)))))You must be all very proud !!!!

Marg said...

Isabella, that look sure would have worked on our Mom. You are just the cutest. Good for your Dad to go back to school and then hopefully get a good job. And Angel, guess you didn't fit in the backpack. Nice try though.
You have a good week with all those naps.

aawwww...cute look! There doesn't seem to be room for two kitties in that backpack. Oh well, just think how wonderful it will be to see him when he comes home! In the meantime, you can busy yourselves sleeping or helping mommy not to work too hard.
Who knows? He may miss you so much while he's gone, they'll be extra treats when he comes back! (a girl can dream, can't she?!)

Buggys said...

Good luck to your Daddy! Back to school, it kind of gives me the shivers!

What?! You can't homeschool your human? Darn!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

That is cool that your daddy is going back to school - what is he going to study? Maybe it is something that you can help him out with! And lots of naps will make the time with him gone go by much faster!!

Good luck to your dad!!!!
I have to say...... I think that look you gave, Isabella, would work on my parents. For ANYTHING. Really.

Good luck to your Dad. With all of you purring for him he's going to do grat! But then he'll be out of the house again. Hmm, maybe you should sabotage him!

Catherine said...

How exciting for your dad to be going back to school ~ good luck to him! Think how much extra lovin' he will give you when he gets home from school. Perhaps you will be able to help him with his homework! (hmmm...that's when having some thumbs would come in handy!) :)

Your Daily Cute said...

Aw, I dunno... Isabella's look would have stopped me from going for sure.

PurrPrints said...

Pass my good luck wishes on to your daddy with going back to school - and just think of how much more you'll appreciate his lap and pats when he is home!

NICO Designs said...

well, it was well-worth the try, girls! Though I do think it will one day provide for even more treats when Daddy is done with all of that school'N.

Stacy Hurt said...

"Too many treats to fit into this bag!" LOLOLOL

Just never you mind girls! There is NO such things as too many treats!

Best of luck to your Dad & just think how fun it will be to smell all the school smells when he comes home!!!

tahtimbo said...

Oh yes, that cute look works really well. That looks like your patented "soft-focus Star Trek" look.
Be sure to tell your daddy that we are all pulling for him and that we wish him all the best!!

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

That is a very sweet look! Maybe he will rush home from school faster if you keep making googly eyes at him!
