Happy Fathers Day
Eighteen years old my little girl showed me just how much of a Daddy's girl she was going to be. Mo's due date was July 14th but she insisted on being born almost a month early, on Father's Day.
When Mo was five and I was no longer working graveyards she was sick in the middle of the night, I got up with her and was in the bathroom making sure she was OK. Mo looked at me and said, " Go get Daddy, I need Daddy." When I didn't go get her father, my precious little vomiting child ran out of the bathroom and into our bedroom to get her Daddy, insisting that he take care of her.
Mo continues to be a Daddy's girl even though she denies it. Her Daddy is number on in her heart, I'm a close second, but it's OK, little girls are supposed to love their Daddy best.
So, on Father's Day and every day I want to say thank you to Steve. Thank you for Mo and thank you for being her Daddy.
