When did I become ‘dad’?

by admin on March 2, 2011

So my daughter started calling me ‘dad’ today. Normally, she calls me Papa or when she is being extra cute it’s, Poppy.

Since when did I become dad to her?

‘Dad’ just makes me feel like we’ve flashed forward fifteen years or so into the future.

I hear her say things like –

“Dad, can I go out with friends tonight?”

“Dad, I’d like you to meet this boy.”

“Dad, I think I’m in love with this boy.”

“Dad, please don’t cry when you walk me down the isle.”

“Dad, I’d like you to meet your grandson.”

Tonight she called me Papa again. Everything is right in our little world and the future is put off for another day.
