“You Were Right, Dad.” I Mutter.

1 05 2012

SAG and I dated for 11 years before we got married.

We were married for 9 years, 10 months, 3 weeks and 3 days before PJ was born.

Sometime between when we got married and when I got pregnant with PJ my father said to me, “You know who would be a great father?” Pause.  “SAG.”

PJ got tap shoes at a garage sale this weekend and she loves to rub those scrappy things on the pavement.  This evening she demanded SAG put on his fishing boots dancing shoes and follow her lead.

A short intermission during which she removed a band-aid from her sweaty leg and placed it on the lens of his glasses.

The grand finale in which the interpretation of frogs turns to horse and rider and SAG crawls across the pavement.

And to my father I say, “Yup, you are right.”

Oh. My. God. Your husband wins the “Dad of the year” award. Tap dancing in rainboots and letting you photograph him. And put it on the blog. Yup. He wins. Hands down.

Was that a jig or a reel?
Seriously some of the cutest pics you’ve ever posted. And yup, your dad was right.
