More Conversations With My Father

Me, hot gluing a hair bow...

Me:  "I have a rocky relationship with hot glue guns."

Dad:  "..."

Me:  "You know, the silver dollar sized scar on my calf..."

Dad: "..."

Me:  "Come to think of it, that was more of a parenting problem."

Dad:  "It always is, isn't it?"

Me:  "I mean, I was like 8, alone with a hot glue gun and no one told me that if I pushed the glue stick that
         was sticking out the back, that glue would come streaming out the front."

Dad:  "Yeah, that was before we knew you would need 'special' supervision."

Me:  "It was glitter glue."

Dad:  "Alrighty then".

If I wasn't 20 years older than you are, I might think we had the same dad.

Happy SITS day.

"Special supervision." I love it. My kids always let me know I'm special. They usually spell it out loud:
Families keep our egos in check, don't they?

Jennifer said...

Supportive parents are awesome! :)

Happy SITS day.

That's hilarious and similar to conversations I have with my parents all the time.

Laura said...

Sometimes dads say the most when they say the least.

Ha! Sounds like a convo I tend to have with my dad. He often makes faces while I ramble away. Every now and again he throws in a clever one-liner. Gotta love dads! Oh, and I dig your blog :)

Dads have their own brand of parenting, don't they?

I love this idea for a post. Except it would be my father who did all the talking! Stopping by from SITs.
