I am my daddy's little girl. Still. Which I think is great. WE took this picture a couple of weeks ago while at a family gathering. I have a lot of pictures with my Mom, but this is one of the only pictures I have taken recently with my Daddy.
My Dad really spoiled my Mom and me. When I became a young lady, if you know what I mean, my Dad was the one who would buy my supplies. This was awkward as you can imagine but he would always include a little surprise of candy or gum. It was always in a brown bag folded down.
He also would write notes on cards and place them in my lunch ( My Mom did too). That was really cute until he started speaking as if he was my bed and inquired why I never made it up, he was trying to sneak discipline in to my fun note, not cool,
He drove me to school most mornings ( he worked night shift and slept while we were in school) and put up with me and my bff blabbering over teenage girl stuff.
When I was sick he would always buy me cherry ludens cough drops which tasted like candy and not cough drops, that was a major plus.
He never complained that I would chew all his Freedent green gum and I mean all, I think I lived off of gum and koolaid mixed with sugar. I would eat it with a spoon.
He was nonconfrontational with me, which was a major plus, I don't like conflict, still don't. I prefer to bury my head and not deal, just like Dad ( My Mom really loves this about us both bless her heart).
My husband said that my Dad hung the moon and it is his job to hang the stars. I am a lucky girl!!
