My Little Caddy (or will it be the reverse?)

Pickle Pie has always seen me watch and be interested in golf. We have a little toy club at home and a putter that my dad got at a conference, that breaks down and can be stored in a decorative box. She loves to play with both, so it has come as no surprise that she would repeatedly say ‘Daddddyyyy… When I bigger, I go pway golf wid you’.

Over the weeked, as a present just from me, I took her to Golf Galaxy. After wandering around the store with no one offering to help, we finally found the junior section. This is what we walked away with;

I had then planned on going to BestBuy to look at the Kinetic… but Pickles had a different view… Nope… Memorial Golf Course it was. We got a small bucket of balls, and I managed to hit one or two… but the main reason for being there was;

Pretty good form, although she is dropping her shoulder, which will not help her get the best contact, but we will work on that… 🙂

We then moved on to the putting green, where her approach of guiding the ball towards the hole was innovative, but maybe not part of the USPGA rule book!

It was a hot afternoon, but we both had a lot of fun. BestBuy, and a look at the gaming options there would come another day…

Three years ago…

From…

To…

Three years… Flash and they are gone.

It is amazing to me how quickly time has gone by. Everyone says it does, and I do get that, but seeing the difference between the wee babe and the little lady still stuns me, and makes me wonder what her sister will look like in 28 months.

Three years ago I was completely unprepared to be a father, and sometimes I still feel unready, but we deal as best we can. The little Pickle Pie, who was once just a little Blobby, is now a little lady, all full of personality, opinions, and attitude. At times I forgot she is still a little one, and expect too much out of her, and am working on my patience, especially at the end of the day.

Three years. I mean really… THREE freaking YEARS! Wow.

Anyway, happy birthday little one. Can’t put in words what you mean to us. How much we love you. And miss you when you are not in the house…
