He Loved Me First

Posted on: June 12, 2016

Dad.

Daddy.

Daaaaaaaaaad!

Whatever I call him, it was him first. He taught me how to tie my shoes, and ride a bike. He showed me what I wanted in a man, and how to tell the ones who weren't right to take a hike. He always has my back (always).  He taught me to defend myself, and stick up for others. He told me that if you loved what you did, you wouldn't have to work a day in your life. He taught me to speak my mind, say what I mean and mean what I say.

Often my (somewhat exasperated) mom will say "Oh, you ARE your father." Whether that is good, bad or otherwise, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Father's Day is coming. Not that I am allowed to buy him anything. It's kind of like his birthday, and Christmas. No gifting allowed. HA! Because I always listen, right?

Exactly... nope. This year will be no exception. I will spoil him, he will resist. I will win. He will, at first, begrudgingly wear his new watch. I predict it will take less than a week for him to accept that I am adult, who may not work (see above) but has a job and may spend her monies as she sees fit- this month on a gorgeous, vintage Rolex. From that realization on, he will love, love, love that watch. A reminder of my affection, pride and gratitude every time he looks down at his wrist.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there, and a great big hug to all who aren't able to celebrate with their dads this weekend.
