Let’s hear it for Daddy

Daddy and Popple looking at Loch Lomond

Father’s Day is around the corner, so it’s time to talk about dads. In particular, this dad.

Adrian and the Popple on the grass

While every child has a father, in the basic biological sense, not everyone had a daddy, But the Popple does, and she thinks he’s pretty awesome.

Daddy makes the stupidest faces, does the best fart noises and performs the most ridiculous dances.

Daddy is the one who made her laugh for the first time.

Daddy hoists her onto his shoulders to play horsie while she grabs his hair.

Daddy always blows on her dinner to make sure it’s not too hot.

Daddy reads her the bedtime stories with an enthusiasm every night, pretending it’s the first time he’s come across the literary wonder that is The Going to Bed Book.

Daddy doesn’t worry about silly things like ‘matching outfits’ or ‘trousers’ like Mummy does. When Daddy dresses the Popple, she often ends up pantsless or in her ninja turtle onesie.

Daddy has made taking her vitamins and brushing her teeth into a fun game, so she actually looks forward to both.

Daddy always gets up and greets her with a smile in the morning, no matter how late he was up the night before.

Daddy makes her day when he walks in the door after work.

Daddy is the best.
