With Father’s Day around the corner I wanted to dedicate this post to my dad, a very special person in my life. I admire my dad so much that I wanted to share some of his greatest qualities with everyone. I also wanted to let everyone know about an exciting Oral-B at Target sweepstakes going on until Sunday.
If I had to describe my dad in 4 words those words would be: smart, selfless, loving, and special.
My dad has always worked really hard to provide for our family. Sometimes our situation has been unfair and tough but his innovative thinking has always pulled us through. He can set emotion and stress aside to keep a clear mind and outsmart any of our problems.
I have always been a procrastinator. You can only imagine all of the school work I put off until the last minute and how stressed I was staying up into the late hours of the night working on a project to finish it at the last minute. During those times my dad was always there to calm me down. He would always say that stressing over an assignment isn't going to finish it and knew exactly what to say to help me get on track to finish the assignment.

Growing up my dad wasn't able to be home very often since he worked from morning until the late hours of the night. I cherished the weekends and the nights when I was up late enough just to say goodnight to him. He has always put the family first even when it left no time for him. He worked from home while taking care of his and my mom’s parents so they can enjoy the comfort of their own home instead of sending them off to an elderly home.

More so than anyone my dad is always willing to listen to me and hear me out. He gives the best hugs and growing up he played with my sister and I every chance he had. "Monster" was our favorite game. My dad would run down the stairs and hide and then my sister and I would have to muster up the courage to go down and find him. He would throw pillows up the stairs while doing this and me being the nice big sister I am would always make Tiana go first (; He was always hiding in the same spot behind the couch but it never got old.
Now, I love to play “Monster” with my Zaden. I must have got that trait from my dad.
Now that I'm an adult, it's been so special watching him bond with Zaden. Seeing my dad become a grandpa has been such a special experience and I love how close he is to his little "buddy" Zaden. It's so cute watching them play together, read books, or watching a children's movie.
My dad is one of a kind and I'm so grateful he is my dad. We have such a special bond that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world.
