Yesterday we took my dad to lunch for his birthday. I think he had a really good time, we were there almost 2 hours and just talked and he had quality time with the kids. It has been really hard for my kids to get quality time with either one of my parents since my mom's Parkinson's has really gone into full swing. Since my dad had to put her in the nursing home, while he still spends his afternoon/evenings there with her, he is able to drop by more. When my mom was still at home, he really couldn't leave her alone and she was bedridden. My kids missed him. They miss my mom too, don't misunderstand, but when we visit her during the week, most times she isn't making sense, or doesn't remember their names. :( Anyway, he turned 78 today and I hope we have many more to celebrate with him... Especially if we go for seafood, I had crab and it was SO good!!
