Ashley's Story

She will leave fingerprints all over your heart


Your Never to Old

Dave just came in from tucking the kids into bed. I could hear a lot of commotion coming from that side of the house, but when dad tucks them in he usually causes the commotion. The kids love it! I asked Dave, "Ok, what did you do to our son?" (I could hear Blake squealing)

"Nothing. Why" He said with a grin on his face.

"I could hear him squealing like a girl. You did something to him didn't you."

"I had my arms wrapped him around and I whispered in his ear your never too old for a zerbert."

"NO! Dad. Don't Do it."

"Your getting a zerbert or a kiss from me so which one is it going to be?"

"Neither I'll just take a hug."

"Nope! Which one?"

"I'll scream in your ear"

Dave said, "So your gonna scream like a little girl. In my ear?"

"Yep", Blake said proudly.

So Dave takes in a deep breath preparing to lay one on him and then the commotion began(hence all of the girly squealing in Dave's ear).

After much nonsense that they both thoroughly enjoyed Dave decides he will settle for just a hug.

"Ok, ok, I'll take a hug, but not a wimpy, girly kind of hug. Its gotta be a real one."

Blake agrees and while hugging his dad Dave places a quick kiss on his shoulder.

The wonderful thing about this story is that you really never are to old to be loved on by your dad. I am so thankful that Blake, Allie, and Ash have a dad who loves them like he does. Tonight I was reminded that not every house and not every child has a dad like Dave and my heart breaks for those who are missing out.

I loved this post, You are right every kid needs a dad like Dave.
My kid's had a great one, very Godly, then he becomes addicted to pornograpy and then moved in with another woman.
My son was Blakes age at the time. Caleb was devastated. God is mending Caleb's heart, but the hardest part has definately been nights without a husband or dad.
I am thankful for children who have both parent's, kid's need a dad.
I loved reading this , it made me smile.

How sweet! Those "guy" moments are so precious. Blake will be so thankful for the dad he has as he grows up. Pretty cool.
