My Little precious, let's chat about some of those choices of yours that have left me a tad nervous.

My Little precious, let's chat about some of those choices of yours that have left me a tad nervous.

Dear Reanna, 

I hope this finds you in one of your epic dance parties in your room, with the music so loud that it feels like there's an earthquake downstairs! Ah, teenage life—truly a rollercoaster of chaos and choices.

I wanted to take a moment to talk about those choices, the ones that make your dear old dad want to pull his hair out while simultaneously doing the Macarena (yes, I can still pull that one off, in case you're wondering). You've got this knack for making decisions that are like fireworks—you never really know if they're going to light up the sky or just fizzle out.

But here's the thing, kiddo, and I want you to listen to this with all the seriousness a dad wearing mismatched socks can muster: I wouldn't have it any other way.

Life is a bit like one of those Choose Your Own Adventure books you used to read when you were younger. Every page turn leads to a new choice, and sometimes it feels like you're stuck in a labyrinth without a map. But guess what? That's what makes life so wonderfully unpredictable and, dare I say, exciting.

Now, let's chat about some of those choices of yours that have left me a tad nervous. Remember the time you decided to dye your hair neon green? I nearly mistook you for a fluorescent highlighter! But you rocked it with confidence, and it made me realize that sometimes you've got to stand out in a crowd, even if it's because your hair can be spotted from outer space.

And then there was the day you announced you were going to start your own YouTube channel to unbox strange toys from around the world. I was like, "Strange Toys? Who's going to watch that?" Well, the answer turned out to be twelve people, and you've become an internet sensation in the room of four! Who would've thought? I should have thought, i almost went broke. 

You see, kiddo, every time you make a choice that has me nervously drumming my fingers on the table, it's not because I doubt you. It's because I care about you and want to protect you from the rollercoaster's loop-de-loops. But deep down, I know you've got to experience those loop-de-loops for yourself.

So, go ahead, goof up, make those wild choices, and live life to the fullest. And know this, my dear daughter: I'll be right here to cheer you on when you soar, to laugh heartily when you crash (because your mishaps can be downright hilarious), to lecture you afterward (because, well, that's what dads do), and most importantly, to help you pick up the pieces and sort things out.

Life is a grand adventure, and you're the fearless explorer. Make choices that make you laugh, make you cry, and make you question your sanity. And if you ever find yourself lost in the maze of life's decisions, remember that your old man is just a phone call away.

So, my fantastic, unpredictable, and absolutely marvelous daughter, keep making those choices, keep being your extraordinary self, and know that you'll always have a slightly goofy, endlessly loving dad right here, ready to embark on the wacky journey of life with you.

With all my dad-joke love,

Neil Misquitta
