I've always been a Daddy's Girl.
(that's not to say that I don't also love my mother - I do.)
As a little girl, I would run to the front door at 4pm every day fighting with my brother to see my dad first.
As a baby, still in the crib, I would yell for him every morning.
I love The Beatles because it is a love ingrained in me by my father. From drives to wherever when A Hard Day's Night would play on the radio and he would ask my brother and I to identify not only the band, but whether it was Paul or John singing.
(as little kids, my brother and I were utterly convinced that in school he'd been made to memorize the lyrics to just about every song, because we could not comprehend the idea of just knowing all the words to so many songs)
So much of my personality comes from him, and no matter how old I get, I know that he'll still see me as that 6 year old girl who invited him to tea parties in the back yard.
I love my dad, and he has helped make me the person I am today.
Did you post about your dad today? I'd love to read it!
PS. I know I'm late on my book post. I promise, I'll post tomorrow!!
