For Daddy, I promise......

Uploaded: July 26, 2004 03:32:30


I promise I'll stay out of the trash, I'll stop chewing the kid toys and stick to my toys, I won't poop inside the pet store, I'll stay out of the fish pond, I won't roll in the mud, and I'll won't roll in that spot in the field that smells so good it makes you wrinkle your nose.....and I'll try to be good today!
