The note reads:
“Dear Daddy, You can use Dumbo. I love you, Good morning, Good night, Sweet Dreams, I love you to the moon and back. Also get me a ‘suvaneir’! Love Tatertot!”
This proud dad posted a photo of the note on Reddit and it’s gone viral with it’s over the top cuteness. He says he was “touched with tears” when he saw Dumbo and the note. And he didn’t let little Tate down, he brought her an I “heart” NY stuffed bear and candy from his trip.

It was back on March 29, 1967 that Janet Haines started working as a crossing guard in Falls Church, Virginia. And 50 years later, she’s still helping people cross that same corner.
The 91-year-old says she loves the “pleasant work environment” on her corner near St. James Catholic School. To honor her 50-year work anniversary, the school surprised her with a celebration of her service. The students, staff, some police officers, and even the mayor came out to show their appreciation for Haines.
“She always has a smile for everybody,” Sister Mary Sue Carwile, the principal at St. James says of their long-standing crossing guard. “I call her our ambassador to the world of kindness and care.”
