    He had just eaten a blue sucker when he came home to the surprise party. He had a blue tongue like a little kid.

    That's just plain awesome! Makes me think of this song " He didn't have to be" by Brad Paisley.





    Title: Brad Paisley - He Didn't Have To Be lyrics

    When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
    It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
    My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
    Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

    I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old
    He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
    A few months later I remember lying there in bed
    I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she'd say yes

    And then all of a sudden
    Oh, it seemed so strange to me
    How we went from something's missing
    To a family
    Lookin' back all I can say
    About all the things he did for me
    Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
    That he didn't have to be

    I met the girl that's now my wife about three years ago
    We had the perfect marriage but we wanted somethin' more
    Now here I stand surrounded by our family and friends
    Crowded 'round the nursery window as they bring the baby in

    And now all of a sudden
    It seemed so strange to me
    How we've gone from something's missing
    To a family
    Lookin' through the glass I think about the man
    That's standin' next to me
    And I hope I'm at least half the dad
    That he didn't have to be

    Lookin' back all I can say
    About all the things he did for me
    Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
    That he didn't have to be

    Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad
    That he didn't have to be
    Because he didn't have to be
    You know he didn't have to be
