Daddy's Girl

January 17, 1982

Many of you may not know this about my Dad - but since my first day at DePauw (in 2000), I have received a daily email from him.  When I was a freshman in college, his emails were my connection to home, my reminder that my family missed me, and my update on Freckles' pooping habits (dog "regularity" has always been a point of conversation in my family).  When I was living in London, I wasn't able to call home as often as I would have liked, but my Dad's emails were always waiting for me in my inbox. Today, I'm almost thirty, and I still look forward to Dad's emails. He usually has some great one-liners or words of encouragement/advice.

My mom is, and always will be, my very best friend, but I'm a "Daddy's Girl" through and through.

I came across a blog post called 50 Rules for Dads with Daughters and I have passed it along to some friends who are also having baby girls.

I know I don't have to teach Tyson to be a good dad, he is an amazing dad. And, just as I feel about my own Dad, I know our daughter will be lucky to have Tyson as her Daddy!

Love you, Dad!

  1. Your dad has always had some great words of encouragement or advice at the most perfect time. I have been the receiver of several of those great words.


Leave some LOVE!
