Dad's Day


Talked to Dad yesterday for Father's Day...I was feeling stubborn and was fully prepared to withhold my "I love you's" if I had to say them first, AGAIN. He surprised me with a grumbled up "I love ya" at the end of the conversation. It was a pleasant surprise, he appears to be getting a little more mellow in his older age. Maybe in my forties he will have worked himself up to a less grumbled up, heartfelt "I love you." You just never know.

My Dad spent the hour complaining about the high cost of living. Never once asked about me, Dan, or the boys. Then grumbled out "I Love You" only after I did! I don't expect much anymore, it is what it is and that's okay.

Agreed with Lennye - "it is what it is." My Daddy, sweetie that he is, probably didn't independently tell me he loved me on the phone until after I was married - maybe he realized he had competition? Keep in mind he's from a huge Italian family where they hug & kiss & stuff, so it SHOULD BE really easy for him, & it still isn't. Ugh.
