Last night I became Kayla's dad...

This might sound weird because I've been Kayla's dad for 8 months already. But last night I did something that just really hit home the fact and feeling that I am responsible for her precious little well being. I've fed her, changed her diaper, bathed her, dressed her, played with her and done plenty of other things with her since she was born May 19th. So this event that happened last night caught me completely off guard.

Every night when Kayla goes to bed, Nicki and I lay her down and rub her little face and head until she relaxes enough to start falling asleep. Then we pray with her and leave the room. Last night, although she was extremely tired when she went to bed, decided she wasn't exactly ready to fall asleep yet when we put her down. So we left the room and heard her playing in her crib for about a half hour. Nicki and I stayed up for another hour or so, then decided to go to bed for ourselves. So right before we went to bed, I went into her room to check on her. She was sleeping on top of the covers because she was standing while playing in her crib, and must have fallen over and fell asleep on top of the covers. So I lifted her little body up into my arms while she was sound asleep, pulled her covers back, and put her underneath them.

Other than watching her being born, that was the most emotional experience I've had as her father. My eyes are welling up as I'm writing this. It's just really strange what sort of things hit you. I would have thought bathing her or feeding her would be emotional like that. But it was when I had her little body in my arms, and was tucking her under her covers last night when I realized how completely helpless she is, and how much she relies on us to take care of every tiny little thing for her.

I think I became her "dad" last night.

    Mikey G says... You will also become her dad when you first ground her, worry about the guys she is seeing, when she first moves out, when she first asks to borrow money form you as an adult... etc.
    Look forward to the teen years... btw you are awesome

    Good stuff Ricky. It's weird how those moments seem to happen at the strangest times. You might do something a bunch of times but one particular moment it just hits you different. I can totally understand what you're writing.

    And I must admit when I first read the title of your post I thought it was going to be describing your first experience of having to discipline Kayla. Shows how my mind thinks. Heh.
