I kind of wish today that I could surprise everyone with the news that I’m pregnant just to make the last post a little more ironic.  But (knock on wood) I’m not at this point!

Friday night my husband and I went to dinner at my parent’s house.  For some reason my parents feel they have to bribe us to come over to help with something.  My dad needed help in learning his new GPS golf unit thingy.  I do believe GPS golf unit thingy is the correct and technical term.  I could be wrong though.  The bribe of a fancy meal of pizza and breadsticks lured us over there.  We stayed for a couple of hours and talked about many things that I can’t even discuss here because of how politically incorrect they are. 

I think the best way to describe my dad is politically incorrect.  And I love him for it.  He’s not one to hide his emotion or his opinion on any topic ranging from Tiger Woods love life to MY love life.  Nothing is off-limits with him.  It takes a lot to shock him.  My husband usually leaves a lunch or dinner with my family shell-shocked with some of the topics of conversation. For some reason it is my dad’s goal in life to embarrass as many people in his path as he can.

As the door closed that night and we left I looked at Brian and said, “I bet you ANYTHING he just said ‘Gah, I thought they’d never leave.'” As we got in the car I gave them a quick buzz.  My mom answered and I said, “So, let me guess…he said ‘gah I thought they’d never leave.'”  She just started laughing and handed my father the phone. “How did you know I’d say that?” “I just know you, dad.” He was astounded that I actually knew him that well. 

I know him that well because I am him.  I have his eyes, his stubby fingers/toes, his road rage, his lack of patience, his humor, an ounce of his wit  And I couldn’t be more thankful that I am like him.  Although I could do without the body hair and the stubbiness.

Another thing we have in common: we both LOVE these girls to death!

I love this picture of Sadie.  It looks like she’s getting ready to take off!
