Tuesday's Tribute - My Dad

Tuesday's Tribute

I have been reading Angie's (at Seven Clown Circus---love her!!) blog for a while now.... she makes me feel not quite so crazy with four kids, seeing as she has 5 and wow, how does she do it??? (something people often ask me.... ). Anyway, she hosts this super cool blog carnival that I have decided to join in..... Tuesday's Tribute-- a time to showcase somebody other than myself.....hmmm, how do I do THAT?? (j/k... I am really not that self-absorbed or narcisstic).

Today, I will showcase..................... MY DAD. I didn't get to do a Father's Day post because I was too busy talking about being a mom to a teenager, so I will share my thoughts today!!

I am definitely Daddy's girl..... even at 34 years old, I still love to be with my Dad, love to get his approval and advice, love to just sit and talk, love to watch him with my kids as he acts like "one of them". My Dad is such an easy going, laid back, genuine kind of guy.... it takes ALOT to get him angry (which I know I did LOTS of during my teenage years)... and he has a sort of dry sense of humor (sorry Dad). He is an incredibly smart engineer, who likes to devote his time to teaching others and mentoring "troubled" kids. He is a good husband who always tries to make sure his wife his happy and taken care of. And of course he is a WONDERFUL daddy to me.... I don't know what I would do without him!!! He is my rock when I need strength, my comic when I need a laugh, my shoulder when I need to cry, my ear when I need to vent.... he is MY.DAD.

Great tribute. I am pretty sure that my girls will be like that with their daddy. They already think he is pretty darn cool. I love to watch that relationship grow. I love my daddy too. I wished he lived closer so my girls could love him as much as I do.

What a very sweet tribute to your dad. I am a daddy's girl too. Always have been and always will be. Your dad looks like a very nice guy. I cherish my relationship with my dad and I can see that you do too! Such a special bond between a girl and her daddy!
