Happy Father’s day to all you father’s out there! I’m going to take a moment today to thank my dad and put a bit of a spotlight on him.
Here is the thing about my dad, my dad doesn’t really enjoy reading for fun. So I’m sure he was terrified when he figured out that there is pretty much nothing I love more than reading for fun (and in general). I mean really how do you relate to someone so different? What if that’s all I wanted/want to do or talk about? He’s a really great dad, yeah we definitely have our differences, but he does a really great job putting up with me.
I forced him to read books with me when I was little, we never finished them and he’d always make me read to the both of us before bed when I asked him to read because he was “too tired.” I’ll never stop giving him grief about that and reading in general.
He also puts up with all my crazy spur of the moment bookish demands. Like putting up these:
Not only did he put them up for me but he cut them to fit my books! Isn’t he sweet?
Some of you remember this post, about building a toy box type thing and fill it with books for my nephews and nieces. My dad went right along with it and has been helping me build it.
So yeah, as you can see, my dad is pretty darn awesomesauce.
Isn’t that the most beautiful corner ever seen? (It’s ok if it’s not. I won’t be offended, but I mean come on, admit it, it’s pretty darn stunning.) And, now here’s a closer look at the that shelf… (because I can. I’m not forcing you to look at it. You can scroll past it. I’ll forgive you.)
