Moosh- your dad is up in bed snoring and moaning like a severely wounded walrus. Today is Father’s Day and I just wanted to let you know, as someone who’s lived with your dad for seven years that the teasing and relentless obnoxiousness will likely never stop. It’s how he shows us that he loves us.


Your shrieks of horror and protest must be music to your dad’s ears or else he wouldn’t insist on pissing you off so often. He never had a brother. We have to forgive him for this. Guy just doesn’t know how to be surrounded by wimmin all the time. It’s made him a little crazy. Good news? Any brothers that you may have will pale in comparison to what your faddah dishes out.

There is a moment in your birth video where he reaches out and touches you really REALLY quick while the nurses are cleaning you off. He didn’t want to get in trouble. You can hear the nurses say “It’s okay dad, she’s yours, you can touch her all you want.” Later when he told me that he got to be the first! to! touch! you! was the first time I ever saw him weakened with the power a little girl holds over her daddy. He hasn’t recovered since. You are his world.

In another hour he will get up and start teasing us. And poking us. And annoying us. This is how boys show they like you. From kindergarten to high school to marriage. The more they pick on you the more smitten they are.

I think it would be impossible for daddy to be any more smitten with us.

We’re lucky ladies.

Happy Father’s Day dude.

Editor’s Pick by Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Megan Jordan from Velveteen Mind: Moosh in Indy is one of our favorites here at Blog Nosh Magazine and this post brought tears to my eyes.  Casey captured in so few words what would take me scrolls and scrolls of the mouse to express.  That is a great way to sum up Casey and my highest recommendation for you to check her out.  Subscribe and follow her on twitter for laughter and tears, all rolled into one tiny package.  As in, do it yesterday.  Ooh, and that video featured in our NoshTube over there in the sidebar?  That’s by Casey, too.  (if you are reading this late, then no, that video about how to make cool cappucino foam is not by Casey.)
