Son#2: So, do you think I’ll have girls or boys?

Me: Well, you could have either I reckon – my mom had 3 girls and I had 2 boys and Dad is one of 3 boys.

Son#2: Hmmm. I hope I have boys.

Me: Why’s that?

Son#2: I dunno, I just think it’ll be easier.

Me: Perhaps, but dads and their daughters have a very special bond …

Son#2: Ja. The only guy a girl can really count on is her dad.

Me: You know, you might just be right about that.

Son#2: Well that sucks!

Me: Why?

Son#2: Because I want K to know she can count on ME.

And that’s when my heart melted.

You know why? Because he’s being 100% honest. Despite his gf, K, being a feisty little extrovert, and him being the gentlest of souls without an aggressive bone in his body, he wants to take responsibility for looking after her and protecting her. What a lucky young lady she is …

    A father must always take a step back from his daughter once she gets married but always be there to lend a hand when asked to do so. There is a special bond between father and daughter but it must not get in the way of her happiness.

    That’s really special!

    That’s beautiful X

  4. Let’s hope she knows she is lucky! :)

    Hmmm… I have one of those “special bonds” with my daughter. She keeps asking me when I’m going to die so she can get her mitts on the death policy payout her mother told her about. In fact she’s counting on it.

    Wow. Thats some job you’ve done with that boy!
