Popi’s Day a.k.a. Father’s Day

Father’s Day is June 17th this year. It is a day when we recognize fathers and what they do. Some don’t do anything. Some do too much. Some are much like the Baby Bear and are just right.

I’ve been a dad for nearly eight months now…since October 12, 2006. Her name…well, we call her Little Bear here on the Blogspot.

She has meant the world to me. As a new dad (about 3 weeks into daddy-dom) a father further in the voyage said, “They get more fun later. You’re probably bored right now because she (Little Bear) is much like a lump of skin and bones just needing to be feed or changed or put down for a nap.” Well, I must say that the individual was wrong. Within a week or so, Little Bear was smiling. Within another couple of weeks, she was laughing. From there Little Bear has just grown and grown. Sure there are days were she is just fussy. It is usually that she is tired, hungry, or needs a new diaper…or as we have found, she just misses daddy.

So to all of those fathers out there. Happy early Father’s Day.

Why do I wish you a happy one? Well, it seems that Popi’s Day occurs on two Thursdays before Father’s Day. So I got my Popi’s Day present last night.

What was it?

A ton of studio made pictures of Little Bear.

That was the best present I’ve ever been given.
