The Dad SOL #14/31

I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the Slice of Life Story Challenge.  I appreciate this space for writers to tell their stories and connect with each other.




"Keith, help me! I don't get this."  

And he's right there, patiently explaining percentages and discounts.  

She is lucky to have him.  They have a special bond, the two of them.  Where I get frustrated, he stays calm and that's what she needs.  He tells corny Dad jokes and she pretends they're not funny.  He will drop everything to help her out.  He shows her what a dad is supposed to be.  

I watch them and my heart smiles.

  1. I can see your heart smiling through your words because mine does too when I see my daughter and my fiance spend time together. When I come home and see them snuggling on the couch or playing a silly made up game. She is lucky to have both of you

  3. What a beautiful moment to capture. To know that someone will be there when you need help, anytime, anywhere, is a beautiful thing. Lucky hubby, lucky girl.

  6. Every time you post about one, or both, of the girls, it makes my heart happy to know that family comes in a wide variety of packages.
    They are so lucky to have had you and Keith in their lives!

  8. That Keith. He's a keeper. I'll bet the corny dad jokes are everyone's favorite. Parenting takes teamwork. The two of you make a perfect pair.

  9. I'm falling in love with Keith, as I read your posts backwards. I'll be back to see what this keeper guy is up to next.
