Sayings About Fathers: I
I may find my Prince, but my dad will always be my King.
I won’t always cry Mummy
When you leave the room
And my supermarket tantrums
Will end too soon
I won’t always wake, Daddy
For cuddles through the night
And one day you will miss
Having a chocolate face to wipe
You won’t always wake to find
My foot is kicking you out of bed
Or find me sideways on your pillow
Where you want to lay your head
You won’t always have to carry me
In asleep from the car
Or piggy back me down the road
When my little legs can’t walk that far
So cherish every cuddle
Remember them all
One day, Mummy and Daddy
I won’t be this small
It’s the little memories that will last a lifetime.
Father Sayings: L
Little feet leave the biggest footprints in our hearts.

Twelve years old: oh well, naturally, Dad doesn’t know anything about that, he is too old to remember his childhood.
Fourteen years old: don’t pay any attention to my dad, he is so old-fashioned.
Twenty-one years old: him? My Lord, he’s hopelessly out of date.
Twenty-five years old: dad knows about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.

Forty years old: I wonder how Dad would have handled it, he was so wise.
Fifty years old: I’d give anything if Dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.
Without my kids.. tomorrow wouldn’t be worth the wait and yesterday wouldn’t be worth remembering.
