Daddy’s Little Girl

19 Jun

Hello my dearest readers!!! Hope you guys had a great weekend and an even better Father’s Day.This post is all about Father’s Day and dedicated to all the father’s in the world.My Dad is the coolest person I know… and I’m not just saying that for effect,it is in fact true. And I think my friends can vouch for that (atleast the ones that have met him :-)).

Daughters and Fathers share a strange yet rare bond and no matter how young or old you are, a daughter will always remain Daddy’s Little Girl. My dad has helped and nurtured me from the tiny toddler that I was, to the lady I’ve become today. Growing up, my dad was kinda strict and particular about our upbringing. We were never allowed to spend lavishly or even get pocket money for that matter, he always told us: “If you want something, tell me, if its something you really need, I will get it for you”. Also, when we were young we had a maid for the house but he made sure she never did our chores for us. He taught us the value of money and people. Even to this day, if any of us need any advice on our life, career etc., we know we can count on him to give us an honest unbiased opinion. Most of the time even without saying a word, he is truly the strong pillar in the lives of all of his three children.

We were taught to be independent and learnt most things the hard way. At times my sister, my brother and me thought our life was a movie in which he was the bad guy, but today we realize that he was only trying to inculcate the right values in us. Today I can proudly say that I’m a good human being, a good citizen and a kind yet fiercely strong and independent person because of My Dad, My Hero. I love the lyrics of this song called “Fathers and Daughters” by Kristin Chenoweth and I want to dedicate this song to all the fathers and daughters out there.

“Fathers And Daughters”

Well you laughed and told me you really wanted a boy
But you cried first time you held me said you never felt such joy
That’s fathers and daughters

When you took the training wheels right off my bike
That’s the first time I could feel my wings
‘Cause you taught me how to fly
That’s fathers and daughters

When I was a pink ballerina dancing in the kitchen
You held out your hand so I could try my luck at spinning
The world kept turning always thru it all
I knew you would catch me
When I start to fall
That’s fathers and daughters.

When you let me go out on my first date
You waited up and you didn’t tell Mom
Even tho’ I got home late
That’s fathers and daughters

And one day when that boy made my heart break
You told me that’s why God made tears
To wash the hurt away

And I’m still that pink ballerina
Dancing in the kitchen
You hold out your hand
I go right back to the beginning
The world keeps turning always thru it all
You’re still there to catch me
I’m still learning how to fall
That’s fathers… and daughters
And daughters… and fathers

We grow up and discover
No one ever loves each other
Like fathers and daughters.
