For the better part of my life I have always been a daddy's girl. My dad and I have spent a lot of time together sense I was 4 till now. The reason being is because I played soccer and my dad was my coach. 5 out of 7 days of the week I was with my dad, Whether it be because I was at Club soccer practice, A tournament, or out of state competing in a Soccer tournament. My mom always had work on Fridays and Saturdays and could never really come to a lot of my soccer tourneys or games but, when she could she was always there to support me. So, therefore I am a daddy's girl.
When it comes to boyfriends meeting my dad I am always a bit nervous. (Dads are tough on guys dating there daughters ha ha) So, little to say when I brought Anthony home to meet my parents I was nothing less of nervous, I was terrified!!! It was a random Wednesday in the middle of the week and Anthony had a late practice for San Jose State Baseball so, we were patiently waiting for his arrival so we could eat the pizza we had ordered. When Ant arrived he met my mom then my dad we all sat at the kitchen table to have a lil dinner (something we as a family never do is eat at the kitchen table ha ha) Ant and my dad hit it off. After dinner we played dominos. Me and my dad love to play dominos and Ant had never played before so we taught him and we all played a couple games. It was a ton of fun. My dad found away to talk about "Butterfingers" this is disgusting and I don't know why we were all talking about it but a "butterfinger" is when you wipe your butt and the toilet paper breaks and it goes on your finger.... like I said disgusting and no idea why it was a topic of conversation ha ha! After our disgusting "butterfinger" talk my dad and Ant got into talking about baseball. My dad can talk for days about baseball. (my dad used to play baseball in the texas rangers organization and my dad played ball his whole life) To say the least they most definetly hit it off... (fewww thank goodness)
Last off season Ant lived at my house in our extra bedroom. (because my parents still think I am 18 years old and can't sleep with my boyfriend of 3 years in the same bed!! ha ha Lame I know!! This year I turn 22 and I am determined to change that ha ha) Anyways, Ant living at my house made my dad and his relationship even better. They had lunch dates together while I was at school or work, my dad worked with Ant almost everyday with his hitting for baseball, and Ant went to my dads high school baseball teams practice everyday when the clock hit 2 pm. My boyfriend was being taken from me by my dad ha ha! I love that my dad loves Anthony and they get along and mesh well together because if they didn't that would make for a whole different kind of ball game!! ha ha. Ant got moved up a couple weeks back and I came home from work all excited to tell my parents the good news and as soon as I come through the door my dad was like "Steph did you hear Ant got moved up he's going to Asheville!!" my response: "Yeah, I know. The question is how do you know?" my dads response: "Oh he texted me and I texted him" ha ha oh lord they even text each other now! ha ha There would be nights in the off season where I would be heading to bed because I was exhausted from school, soccer, and work and Anthony and my dad would stay up and watch shows together. By the end of the off season they had date nights where they would stay up and watch their shows together, and if Ant wasn't home my dad would text him and say "hey, the knew storage wars is one, or the new Ghost hunter is one tonight" ha ha A dad boyfriend relationship is so important to me and I feel blessed that my dad and my boyfriend have a good bond!
