Oh the Fathers!!!

Let me say a few words about the fathers in my life.

My Dad

Lets just say that I am my fathers daughter. I get most of my personality and all of my clutzyness from him. He has done a lot for me over the years. He taught me a bit about cars by taking me to classic carshows. Because of that I still stare at a classic car when one drives by. He taught me to always look at the funny side of life. I don’t think I could have gotten through a lot of the difficulties I have been through with out that skill. I recieved his sense of humor and love for Mel Brooks. I also mannaged to recieve his skill of bleeding on every project I work on. He let me play with “boy” toys (so did my mom) like squirt guns and Nerf guns as a little kid. He taught me to never be afraid of goofing off a little. We still get into play fights every time I go over for a visit. He may keep ageing, but he will always be my Daddy and a kid at heart.

Ben

While he hasn’t been a father for long, he has become a great one. He  was excited and scared from the day he found out he was going to be a dad. He was there overjoyed when he found out the baby was a girl. He almost cried when he saw his daughter for the first time. He still has a look of awe and happiness on his face whenever he holds Alyssa. Although he still seems afraid that he is going to hurt Alyssa, he is slowly gaining confidence. He is such a great helper when Ally decides to stay up crying until one in the morning. I just wish I could get him to change more diapers.(he has only changed one since we brought her home!) I can’t wait to see the dad he becomes.

    You DO have a wonderful father! His sense of humor blesses me, even tho I feel I am unduly targeted by his tomato-hate.

    Congrats to Ben on his first Father’s Day! But Audrey, my sweet, you must INSIST on more diaper help! he must be absolutely baptized in poo-poo and and that goes with it. That is just a rule! Ha!
