My Pops

I have a pretty awesome dad. We're missing him so much right now because he's working in another country. I try not to think about it too much because I'm not really a person who looooves to show my emotions, and thinking of my dad not here everyday, makes me sad. I miss him, he's so funny, and super smart, and he spoils us (when I say us I mostly mean Ardo, but I get things every now and then too). We talk to him on the phone and through email, but the best is sending him videos. (like this one) It makes him so happy to be able to see Ardo.
Little story about my childhood and my pops :: When we were little we'd all make a family trip to Walmart or Target. At the time my dad DID NOT spoil us, he made us work for what we wanted or we just didn't get stuff for whatever reason and that was that. There was one way to get around this, when we were on our little outings, we would sneak things into the cart, then when it was time to check out he just bought everything. (sneaky kids!) Oh the things I did for a lip smackers lip gloss!
We're teaching Ardo how to throw besitos (kisses). He's doing really well. He's just a little distracted in his high chair. It's like he wants to throw kisses but he also wants to eat his chicken - haha!

  3. Your dad sounds a lot like my dad. He was very strict... which was expected after having 7 of us, but he was also very loving and willing. I saw him with my baby nephew and niece and he really enjoyed them. He was great.
    Your post took me down memory lane and I want to thank you for it.
    I am following now and would love for you to follow back.
