Because he's the daddy

Our Ashley is adult-sized. She is not adult shaped, and, at barely 11, isn't an adult, but she is adult sized. Over 5' tall and in ladies clothes that do not fit because she isn't shaped like a lady yet, but the girl that she still is. She is still getting used to those long legs and ginormous feet that she inherited from her mother.

Last night, due to events we will never understand other than the earth's gravity, Ashley's feet came completely out from under her while she was walking into the kitchen. She had both hands full, so the entirity of her adult-sized body landed on her tailbone on our tile floor. As Troy and I stood over her trying to help her and determine what happened it quickly became obvious that even if there WERE something you could do for an injured tailbone, we didn't know what it was, and watching her cry and writhe in pain was heartbreaking.

So Troy squatted down and, without even audibly groaning, scooped up her adult-sized body as if she were still 3 or 4 and carried her to a more comfortable spot
-because she's his baby girl
-because she needed him
-because he's the daddy.

Do you have ginormous feet? I hadn't noticed.

YES--Sarah has ginormous feet. . .though very, very narrow. . .so they don't look so ginormous.

I have smacked down on my tail bone much like poor Ashley--freshman year, Harding, during a hard freeze--feet slipped right out from under me on the sidewalk after the snow melted down it all day then froze as soon as the sun when down. I am pretty sure I broke it. . .but there is nothing to be done for it. . .and it hurt for a very, very long time.

What a wonderful Daddy that Troy is. . .

-because (I knew) it would stop the blubbering -and- if it's one thing this Dad can't take, it's the crying

-Dad
