How did your dad change once you had kids?
My dad is not a very affectoniate person towards my sister and I. Esp now that we are both grown. Even we both moved away there was no "I love you" no real hugs or anything. I only remember my dad actaully giving me a hug and kissing me one time. And that was when I was 12 and he was getting shipped off to Korea for a year. He had to leave in the middle of hte night and I woke up and he was sitting on the edge of my bed crying. But the day DD was born it was like *BAM!* a whole new dad! He would sit on my bed with me while I nursed her and talk to me. When he left about 3 days after she was born he hugged and kissed AND said "I love you". I was floored!! Well now my older sister is pregnant (after 7 years of trying!!). She called me last night and said "oh my God I got off the phone with dad and he said I love you!" We both just laughed and I told her about all of things dad has done since DD was born. It's just amazing. He is like a completely different person. He never calls her Joanna he calls her "pretty girl" At first I was thinking well dad is just overwhlemd with emotions, but now that dd is almost 2 he is still being loving towards me. The other day I was sittin go nteh couch by him and he reached over and put his arm on my shoulder. Simple gesture I know, but for my dad that spoke volumes.
