Daddy why you so ugly so?

Updated on January 2, 2014

I stole this from somebody

It was given to me but maybe taken from somebody.

I have beautiful Childrens They be fine.

If you think this here hub is about ugly just listen to the song and dance around the kitchen as your children make fun of daddy ---- then you will feel the love. And then so will I.

These guys have teeth that shine and minds that never whine. They all could be models and they have seven degrees between the the three eldest. And the younger runs a computer and all the alphabet and numbers at 3. What did I do wrong?

They dance around the kitchen waiting for the dinner and call me ugly so. Actually my wifes say I am handsome. My twelve girlfriends say I am fine looking. So why my babies call me ugly so?

I have dated princesses and been on covers of magazines --- well OK that is my son, but he looks like me.

Joy is joy no matter what.

Happy can take the form of ugly --- ha ha ha ha what is ugly?

What too heck is ugly? Watch this next video and just lighten up your behavior. What are these surface notions we carry. Inside these men are beautiful.

Mamma look a Boo Boo

If you can listen to that song above and not smile ---- Yikes

A Daddy Boo Boo is about a dad. Not about children. It is about our ability to laugh at ourselves. We must love ourselves enough to laugh at ourselves. If life was easy this would not be so. But life is hard and it is so.

If we cannot smile and laugh as a child makes fun of us we have dangerous issues.

I just love these kids!

That is the end of this hub. But there is an addendum just about hubbing.

I really really have great friends here and have a very happy time writing and reading.

This part about ugly. I played two sports very competitively. One was skiing downhill which you would think would take finesse. Another was football and I played nose guard and linebacker. Which you would think would require great size.

Well I never had finesse and I am only 6 ft tall. So I played both sports the only way I knew how -- Smash mouth and in your face and every move like it was my last.

So now you ask what has this to do with hubbing?!

Well if you have to ask that question this must be the first piece of my writing you have ever read because I write smash mouth and my tenacity is my only quality.

Here is the point. I think we can all agree that "ugly" might be a good way to describe my writing style. And that is just what it is. But even though I be ugly so I can make you smile. Now go out there and be your beautiful self.

That video pic there is the Little Rascals. Very famous back when.

But this one really is my family -- I am the cute one! What happened?

Happiness is not a mat that sits on your doorstep.

It is not a religion or caused by such. It is not riches or beauty. As my 3 year old son let me know this last week "Daddy happy is not on your face it is in your heart".

Happiness is closer to rose colored glass than it is the real color of things.

      These men are men my mamma told me to be like. Of course we loved the Rat Pack but these men were to aspire to be like. Real men who could sing and dance and laugh. Thanks for sharing your cup of tea with me this morning.

      Fun hub, Eric. Children do remind us to take things lightly...ourselves being the #1 thing. :0)

      I had the privilege of being in the same room as Harry Belafonte when I received my M.Ed. in Elementary Education at UMass, Boston. He received an honorary doctorate for a lifetime of musical contributions to the world. It was thrilling to witness. :0) Also love Danny Kaye as an actor, too.....very funny.

      Voted this hub up, up, up. :0)

      "Shut up you mouth, go away; Mamma look a boo boo deh." I haven't heard this song in years. Thanks for the memory. Did you know that some people use "ugly" as a pet name? This is a fun hub!
