Daddy's Girl - Round Two

A Sneak Peek Inside Wifey’s House

When I sat down to write this Father’s Day post I read the one from last year and thought, “how am I going to top this one?” Then I realized, I don’t have to. It’s a sweet tribute to my favorite (and only) Dad, it’s one of my favorite posts, and most of you haven’t read it yet. Perfect. Well almost.

While I included a picture of Husband in the post I really didn’t share what a wonderful father he’s become. He’s loving, patient, authoritative, fun, dedicated, (this list could go on and on)… and most importantly an excellent role model for our children. I’m so proud of him, love him dearly, and appreciate all that he does for our family.

Now, without further ado:

Daddy’s Girl

Friday’s confession …

OK, I admit it, at 38 years-old, I’m still a bit of a daddy’s girl. Yes, I actually even call him “daddy” from time to time. And while he thought he got rid of me when he walked me down the aisle, he couldn’t have been more wrong.

Yes, I’m all grown up now and have the husband, kids, dog and even a little white picket fence. And while I must say it’s nice to relate to him on an adult level, to talk, socialize and even share a beer with my dad, they’ll always be apart of me that’s still his little girl. The one he gave horsy rides on his back when he came home from work; and taught to count in Spanish when he tucked me into bed; and coached my softball team when we lived in Colorado, and came to all my basketball games even though I wouldn’t jump for the rebounds; and taught how to drive in the parking lot of the local college so I could get my license at 16… the list could go on and on.

While I cherish all of my childhood memories, some of my favorite times are happening right now when I see my dad with my children. Sometimes when he and Milan are together, I see me, twenty, ahem, thirty years ago. Wow.

My dad “GP” and Milan

Me and my daddy

My “baby daddy.” I couldn’t resist.

My father-in-law with Miles. We miss you Pop Pop.

What about you? Are there any other daddy’s girls in the house? Ladies, do tell; and dads, have a very happy Father’s Day!

Winks & Smiles,

Both of my girls are daddy's girls. Unfortunately, my oldest's daddy died. But fortunately for us all, we have been blessed with a wonderful man who feels lucky to be a father to both of our girls as if each of them were his. Happy Father's Day!

I like your space. SITS Sista'

I have a father and a stepfather and am yet to be daddy's girl to/with either of them. I do feel that I've missed an experience and opportunity, but I've been fortuanate to have had a few really good male role models to make up for what I was lacking. I give thanks and honor to them for stepping up.

Love to live; live to love!

I still call my father "daddy". And I always will! Madison is already there with Rick. She calls him Daddy Ricky when he takes too long to answer!

I am suuuuuchhhh a Daddy's girl; there's a wonder that I'm not rotten (OK...I am). My parents had me when they were very young; so it seems like we've all grown up together. As we've matured, it's been wonderful not only being his daughter, but his friend, too.

Wow, what a wonderful post! I never knew my real dad, so I was never a daddy's girl. Growing up we never even called my step dad, Dad, he was always just Jimmy.

However, I married a great man who is a great Father and we have 5 wonderful kids! I am so Thankful our children can call him Dad:)

I'm working on making my daughter a daddy's girls as we speak.

You went there with the "baby daddy." I think I'm daddy's little girl by default. I am the baby of the family, and after 3 girls, my dad decided he since he wasn't having any boys, he'd mold me into his little boy. I was content with being his little tomboy. Now you are making me feel guilty about not writing a father's day post.

I'm a daddy's girl, I can not lie. And your right, seeing my dad with my kids is one of the most amazing things.

What a beautiful post!

Unfortunately, my dad passed when I was only three weeks old but I have always wished for this type of bond.

I hope to have a little girl just to see that bond with my hubby and her.

Growing up, I was NOT a daddy's girl, but now I am such a daddy's girl. As a matter of fact, my daddy just drove down from VA to escort me to a Father Daughter dance on Saturday. He and the hubby conspired to surprise me. Now that's a daddy's girl, right?
Great post!

I just left a comment for you over at The BlogRollers. If it's not you that reads it, they'll be like, huh?

I said I missed you! I was offline for 2 months and I'm back. I'm trying to find everybody I used to follow and re-follow but it's taking a while because I lost everything. Anyhow, today it's you and you know I think your family is beautiful! We have a special bond you and I about some things. :)

Jenni June 25, 2009 at 1:52 PM  

I am still a Daddy's girl and I still call him Daddy! I can't imagine calling him anything else!
