What's Your Song? Thursday Link Up!

This Sunday is Father's Day. Just like Mother's Day, this is a rough day for us. Every year Hubs hopes that we'll have a baby by the next Father's Day. This will make the 4th FD since we started dating - and yes, we did start TTCing before we got married. You know that feeling you get when you know something is perfect? Yeah, we knew. Anyways, This song fits my vision of Hubs as a dad to a tee. One day, he'll be a dad. I'll make sure of it. I just can't guarantee when. Here's Gary Allan with Tough Little Boys

As for my dad, our relationship has been tumultuous to say the least. The year my sister and I started school was also the year that my parents' relationship started going to sh*t. He missed pretty much anything I did in school until I moved in with him in 7th grade. While I lived with him, he attended all our school events. When I moved out at the end of 9th grade to live with my mom again, he told me I wasn't allowed to ever move back in. I'm still trying to work on our relationship, because it's been pretty rough since then. Not every dad is like Gary Allan describes, and I understand that. I just miss how my dad used to be. I can think of a number of reasons that have caused him to change, and most of them aren't nice, so I'll keep my mouth shut. But whether he's the greatest dad in the world or not, he's my dad, and I love him. (And he's not a deadbeat like my hubby's dad, so it's all good) And in honor of my Dad on FD, I offer you Queen. Not just any Queen song, though - this one he used to play for me and my mom when I was younger. Here's Fat Bottomed Girls

Happy Father's Day! If you want to join in on the link-up fun, head over to Goodnight Moon's page!
