65 Awesome Dad Tweets From @squirtsdad

As a dad I love Twitter because it's an awesome place to share the awesome little moments of fatherhood.  However, Twitter does not make it easy to go back and read, reminisce or save the great moments I've shared–and I do want to save some of these moments/tweets.  So here are some of the great moments/tweets I just had to preserve in my blog because I have multiple, automatic backups for my blog and I just couldn't let them become lost in the twitterverse.  They are chronologically ordered from the newest to the oldest so if you allow me to take up a few minutes of your time, here they are.
