I did NOT see that coming.

Since we are getting married in 37 days, I thought it would probably be a good idea for us to pick our songs, readings, readers, etc. Seems like a plausible, yet procrastinative, and reason to make up some wordage idea.

I picked "Daddy's Angel" by T Carter Music for my biological father. Nice, but doesn't say anything like "when I taught you to ride a bike" or "sang you to bed every night," but it will also keep me from having to hear about it for the rest of my life. Win/win.

B's mom picked "My Wish" by Rascal Flatts for them. The song I WOULD have chosen for my bio-daddy had she not beaten me to the punch.

But, I was having a really hard time with the song for my stepdad. He's not a sappy dude, he's a funny dude, but I wanted him to know that I love it wasn't easy.

I eventually narrowed it down to two songs: "Daughter" by Loudon Wainwright, and "He Didn't Have to Be" by Brad Paisley. Still couldn't decide. So I gave him the two songs, and told him to pick.

This is what he picks....

...okay then, dad! Lion King it is! Weirdo ;)

LOL, I didn't see that coming either as I read this post! Your Step-Dad is awesome. One of my favorite songs, so I think there must be a videographer there and this song/dance must be posted.
:-P Just kidding!
