In honor of Fathers Day I am going to share five childhood memories about my dad.
- I was a daddy’s girl. I would do anything he did when I was young. Mom said I was in the shop with dad when he was working on a tractor once, and when I saw him wipe his greasy hands down the front of his jeans, I immediately wiped my grungy little hands down the front of my dress!
- I grew up on a dairy farm and daddy did the milking. On our birthdays he let us get up and go milk with him in the morning. When we were young getting up at 5am to “help” Daddy was pretty cool.
- We always loved it when mom needed him to run to the store for an ingredient for dinner, because he would come back with ice cream also. Mom said he had an “ice cream deficiency”!
- Because of farming he was really strong, I thought my daddy was the strongest man on earth. As kids we would ask him to “make a ghostie-under-a-blanket” (making a muscle under his shirt sleeve) and when he did, we would laugh and laugh!
- Daddy loved to scare us, he would hide in the bushes and when we walked by he would jump out at us! Problem is, after awhile it got so that if we heard rustling in the bushes, (or wherever) we would laugh and run find him 🙂 I think he was disappointed that he couldn’t scare us any more!
So there are 5 fun childhood memories of my daddy. Do you have any fun memories?
