Yesterday was my dad's birthday, I wanted to post something but I had soccer right after work - which we won 4-1 btw ...... very exciting, I almost got into a fight....very exciting!!! hehe - anyways I wanted to wish my dad a very happy birthday here too!
He has his own blog now so go over and wish him a happy birthday from yesterday!
The other night we were at our neighbors for Sandra's birthday and she asked us all a question and the question was who tucked you in to bed at night and what was the routine ( just so you know Sandra loves the "ungame" and asking deep questions.....and she wants the real stuff, no fluffy answers allowed!).
well both my parents tucked us in but I loved it when my dad tucked us in because he would lie down beside us and rub our backs......he would quickly fall asleep.... he still does when ever he actually sits still for more than 5 minutes.... so I would wiggle to wake him back up and he would continue rubbing, then we ( I say we cuz for most of our early years Shash and I shared a room) would ask him to sing to us. He always said I don't know why you want me to sing to you, it wasn't like he was a "singer" but we loved it. I loved hearing him sing, there was so much peace in it and I remember feeling lulled to sleep and a sense of security and well-being. Sometimes he would tell us stories from when he was a little boy growing up in Edmonton of sitting on ant hills and playing hockey in the winter to scooping golf balls out of the ponds. Great great memories and another reason why I have the best daddy in the whole wide world!!
Happy Birthday Dad.
