SAGAR YERUNKAR – MAY 2015
At 13 years (sometimes I read numbers backwards), my dad is super supportive! There isn’t much of an age gap between dad and me. I turned 1 few days ago and daddy turned 31 on May 16th. See, we are only 3 apart 😉
One thing is definite – my dad has mastery over story-telling.
When he narrates me a story, he captures our attention. I may be distracted but yet, I get engulfed in his stories; mom too! You can see mom’s palm on her chin, eyes and ears in deep attention. And even if I hear less than half the story, dad continues it with a lot of enthusiasm. Love it dad! Now I can tell how dad charmed mommy. How many stories did you make up dad to impress mom?!
My dad is fun! Papa ensures he gets home on time to enjoy with me before I zzzz.
Mom says Dad’s face is a lantern of happiness when he makes me laugh. He does it every day and it is priceless to watch! Dad doesn’t know I just laugh because I don’t want to disappoint him. 😉 (Just kiddin’!)
Mom is pretty smart too. She knows how to put dad to work. She uses her leadership skills with him too. Guess, that (shhh… mom shouldn’t hear), mom has stringed dad into feeding me breakfast, dinner, and cleaning my dirty diapers on the weekends. Pee yu! :p
Plus he does many more things to give her time. But I see why dad does it – he loves mom (nobody should know he is a little scared of mom too, like half a chocolate piece scared). Dad don’t worry, I didn’t tell mom how you sneak into the chocolate box.
There are 3 things that dad barely does half as good as mom (sorry dad, mom told me to write this ;))
- Tear free bathing
- Getting me to close my eyes for sweet dreams
- Keeping me still while changing my diaper
But then Dad has his strengths too! Here is my SD – SUPER DAD
Dad is Super good at
3. And playing Peek-a-Boo with me!
Mom says: “Sagar is a super protective dad. Seeing them play together makes me wonder if boys will always be boys”.
