A Seven Year Dad

IMG_0361Well it is official. I have been a dad for seven years now. My beautiful baby girl is only getting older and there is not much I can do about it. It doesn’t really make me sad, because I know that she’s going to grow up regardless of me wanting her to or not, it’s just going to happen. But what it does do is makes me happy that my little girl is growing up to be a respectful and intelligent person. These past seven years are all pretty much new to me. Aside from taking care of our nieces and nephews when they were little my wife and I are still just figuring things out all on our own.

So here we are, seven years later and still having a lot of fun. This 7th birthday party sleep over was no different. Snacks, silly string, playing, outdoor movies, and a sleep over all were on the agenda for our little girl. We got her what she had been asking for over a year now, a bunk bed, but it was the JoJo Siwa hair bow from her cousin that brought the house down with excitement. I mean I could have bought hundreds of bows for what I bought the bunk bed for, but maybe she wouldn’t have gotten as excited. Either way it is a treat watching your kids go crazy while opening up gifts from family and friends.

Being a dad to this little girl has been an emotional roller coaster. So far I’ve watched her grow into a spectacular young lady and I could not be more proud as a dad. My little doodles is growing up too fast and there just isn’t anything I can do about it except love her even more.IMG_5378

Richie

My name is Richie and I am a 33 year old father of two. My daughter is seven years old and my son is three. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
