Dad's tips for adding life to a daughter's years
"My father and me going squirrel hunting—which actually consisted of us sitting in the woods together on a log, me talking his ear off. He never shot a single squirrel. :-)"
"In third grade we had Dads Day where dads would come hang out for the day and play games. That was a year before my step dad (I call him dad anyway) married my mom. As a third grader, I thought he was the tallest man in the world, he would lift me high on his shoulders and parade me around to the activities. It was a day I’ll never forget. Then two years ago, he and my family dropped me off at my freshman dorm. He wasn’t the happiest camper that day, and a few days later he called to tell me sorry, and that he wasn’t too sure how to handle it. He also told me that he got to be reminded of and relive the beauty of Dads Day because he had a dream that I was back in third grade riding high on his shoulders."
"My dad would always take me to have tea parties at Hardees… We would get a cookie and hot chocolate. He would sit and listen to me talk and that was our time, just me and him. I will never forget those times."
"I remember when I had a loose tooth waiting on the steps for my dad to come home from work to pull it out. I would see his car at the bottom of the street and be jumping up and down while he parked the car yelling, “Pull my tooth daddy, pull my tooth!"
"Once a year I was allowed cut school with my Dad and go to a local golf tournament. It was a standing date every year. One of many cool things we would do together."
