Proud Father Alert

.
Meg won a silver medal at a swimming gala today!

I was about to launch into a rant about filling in forms just to be able to take a photo of my own daughter in the swimming pool, but then remembered I did all that last year.

In fact I could repeat last year’s post almost word for word, so for anyone interested, click here to read it (Medal Won at the Swimming Gala) and I’ll just stick up a photo of my wee lass and her extremely proud father.

You Rock Meg! Congrats to the proud dad too.

Kim,

Your going to need to build or buy a trophy case for the house soon.

Ahhh, that is a great photo!

Banzai to Meg, and omedeto, too. (Words of congratulations...)

And while I'm at it, you and Maggie ought to pat yourselves on the back too, because whenever a kid gets a medal, however talented that kid is, the Mom and Dad deserve a helluva a lot of the credit (oops, here comes my daughter, better hurry up and post this before she sees it!!)

I saw your post about your daughter. I am a New York Times bestselling author working on a new book about father-daughter relationships and thought you might want to contribute. Please visit my page for details about submitting stories for Daddy's Little Girl.

Thanks to everyone for your warm comments - Maggie and I are very proud parents and Meg was duly made a great deal of fuss over.
