About A Daddy

I know you think that when you were 13 I hated you. That is not true. I hated some of the things you did, but never you. Many years later, when you returned to our lives I told Mr. Vixen and MacD that “we forgave Nanny for the things she did because she was a child. He was a child too, so how can we not forgive him?” It worked and you became a part of our family. Things have not always been easy since then. However, you and my daughter have gifted me with two of the greatest joys in life. But you didn’t stop there. You became a wonderful Dad and I am so proud of the father you are to my grandbabies. You are loving and caring. You keep them safe and happy. You are helping them to become two of the most fantastic little beings on the face of the planet. Any one can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy. Happy Father’s Day, Lloyd.IMG_0070





Sweet Emotions


Ha, Ha ~ Fun times


  1. Awwww…

    All that love paid off! Happy Father’s Day to the men in your family.

  2. That was beautiful, vixen.

  3. Aww so sweet!

  4. That was sweet, and probably even sweeter because it sounds like it’s been a bit of a journey to where things are now. Cool.

  5. What a great tribute. This would be something that every son-in-law would love to hear. Who was it who said mother-in-laws are so terrible?

  6. Awwww. Now I wish I would have read this sooner! Love you, mom.

  7. That’s sweet 🙂

  8. Awww…..

    (I tried to email you and it keeps coming back??)

  9. Ahhh – that was so beautiful. Happy Father’s Day. *huggies*

  10. Gosh, I can think of a better compliment than what you gave your son. You continue to do a spectacular job as a mother – how inspiring!

  11. What a great post, Vix! It’s really touching the way you talk about your family. You’re so eloquent in the expression of your feelings for them.

  12. This was lovely tribute to man who’s grown up and become a parent instead of the rebellious child. Good job Grandma.

  13. I don’t know that much about Lloyd, but I can say that he has a pretty happy family. That wouldn’t happen unless he was working hard and being supportive.
    I hope he had a good father’s day, and good luck at the new job!

  14. All of those picture are so great – really love the beach ones. Wonderful sentiment.

  15. Those were wonderful things to say….I can’t wait till I am there with my teens….(LOL) I am getting there with my 20 year old…but still waiting for the other two….

  16. Wonderful Father’s Day post, and a great present as well 😉
