Daddy on “Birthdays”

Posted: May 27, 2011 in Family, Fatherhood, Nariah

Birthdays and Father’s Day. Two days of the year you can expect gifts from your child(ren). In my experience, the saying “Its the thought that counts” doesn’t hit home more so than when your daughter gives you something and then gives you instructions for it’s use.

Nariah made me a necklace for my birthday. She said it was a very special necklace and she made it for my birthday because I was the “best daddy in the whole world”. As she gives me the necklace while I’m picking her up at school the day prior, she informs me of each bead that is on it and asks me to put it on.
Now daddy, I want you to wear this on your birthday ok? Wear it to work tomorrow so all of your co-workers can see it. Don’t worry if they make fun of you, you can just tell them that I made it especially for your birthday ok?

That statement alone makes me want to wear it for much longer than just my birthday!
