To my dad, Dada (as all the kids call You)

Today is Father’s Day and although I am on a blogging break, I’ve decided to write a post for this day.

My dad is amazing (as all daughters would say about their dads!). He has been my friend, my protector, my choreographer, my teacher, my partner in crime and so much more. My dad is awesome.

I remember the days that my dad would come home from work and I would hide under our then, dining room table. My dad would find me and then give me a Flake. This was our daily routine.

Every friend of mine knew my dad and they all thought he was so cool! All my cousins and friends looked forward to seeing my dad and I’ve had to share him with children plenty of times! He’s just loveable like that!

My dad always encouraged my interests. I had an interest in dance; he would buy cassettes and cd’s & even get up dance with me! I had an interest in computers and technology; my dad got me a computer and left me to fidget and fiddle. Not once worrying that I would break such an expensive thing. He also let me choose my own career path, which was IT.

My dad sat up late at night with me to help me figure out things like math and physics and of course, he helped me build the best school projects. He bought me a piano keyboard because I wanted to learn to play. My dad is also a mechanic, and I used to be his spanner girl.

In this world, for me, there’s nothing my father can’t fix. Be it a material thing, that broke apart or a literal problem in my life; somehow he has the solution to it all.

My father would drive any amount of miles for me, he would spend his last cent on me, he would protect me from every evil of the world and he would go to the ends of this earth for me.

My father has been there for every important day in my life be it a school awards function or a dancing commitment. He has been there. He has made every dream and wish of mine possible, at all costs.

From being everything to me, he has been everything to my children too. Who prefer being with him, than being with me. I see my father with my children and I see the most amazing love between them. To them, he is everything that he is to me.

There is nothing their grandfather can’t fix and no hurt that their grandfather can’t make better. Anything they want, they just ask him and he magically makes it appear.

Many people, mistake Avi (my husband) for my father’s son. They take me, as my father’s daughter in law. Its because of the relationship they have. My dad treats Avi like a son. Like his son.

So to my amazing dad, you might not read this and I’m too emotional to tell you this on my own, but you are wonderful and amazing and truly, the best dad in the world! I love you. Yash & Ralee love you. Avi loves you. We all love You & want to say thank You for being such an amazing dad!
