I have been dreading today.. It marks 2 months that my daddy has been gone.
Amazingly I wasn't crying today, I was remembering all of our silly sayings and it made me smile.
My dad would always tell us.. " do you remember when you was big and I was little ?" ( we never got that one, but it would make us laugh ) , or for no reason he would just yell " hotdog !" ( we always thought he was hungry )
or " your a fast little motor scooter !" , " I remember when I was a pebble " ( what the heck that meant, we haven't a clue )
He even got some of my sayings.. I always tell my god daughter " chop chop gum drop " and he told me once that he said it at work and his coworker looked at him like he lost it. It made me smile though.
I love you daddy and I miss you ! Thank you for making today a little easier.
luv ur chana
I just thought about how I got my nickname. My daddy started it and I remember telling him as long as he didn't use it in public we were ok. It's funny the first person to use it in public was my mom and not my dad . I was so mortified I went home and told my dad. He just laughed and said aww poor mama, but since mom did it already it won't matter if I do it. huh? It took me like a week, then I didn't mind being called Chana in public. It's a weird name but my daddy is the one that gave it to me.
