Well my older daughter has turned 20 today and It seems just like yesterday she was born. I am a very proud Dad that she still wanted me to take her out to eat for her birthday. I have been trying to figure it out when I started doing that. It was a very long time ago that I started taking both my girls out for there birthday.
One of the memories I had was with Elizabeth and again I do not remember her age but she was determined to go to Shoney's for her birthday dinner and I do remember that she ordered spaghetti and the reason she liked Shoney's was because of the mascot. It was a teddy bear and she liked it.
Another memory I have was with Katie and again I do not know what age she was but we went to Captain D's and it is a seafood place. I do remember telling her that when she gets home she will have to wash her hands and face before she got near her Mom. There Mom is allergic to seafood so she was very understandable about that.
One of the funnier memories was when I have taken one of the girls to Captain D's for there birthday dinner and we got home. There Mom asked them what they had for dinner. They answered that they had fish and dog. We were wondering what they meant by dog and it took a while to figure it out. They could not remember hush puppies so they just said dog.
It has been an honor taking my girls out for there birthday all these years and I am a proud Dad that they still want too. I know one day it will stop and that will be a sad day but I will understand that they grew up and have there own lives now.
I want to encourage you and if your kids are still at home start taking them out for there birthdays. It is a great time for you to just sit and talk and laugh and get to know them.
Thanks Girls Dad loves you....
