    I Am About To Be A Father In Law

    For those of you who did not see my facebook post, I am about to welcom a son in law to my family. My oldest daughter LaCarra is getting married next spring.

    For those of you who have had to go through the process of letting one of their little girls go, I would appreciate any advice.

    On a side note, one of her wedding colors is purple. Did Iraise her right or what?

    Congratulations ND!

    Whether your daughter is married or not, she will always be daddy's girl.

    How to let your little girl go

    I prefer simply not doing it. Introduce Mr. "I-wanna-be-your-son-in-law" to Mr "Semi-auto-in-your-face". then hug your little girl, tell her that she'll thank you someday, and go on about your business.

    The alternate option would be to point out to Mr. "Perspective son-in-law" that he had better be a Viking fan, he'd better raise his kids to be Viking fans, and if he EVER crosses the line and does something that infuriates you, you will simply reach out to the PPO community and have him "disappeared".

    That's how I see it.

    thats what it comes down too. If he's a good guy its easier (not easy) to let her go. Have "the talk" with him first make sure he knows he is taking on something very precious and if he screws it up you'll kill him, simples

    CONGRATS ND! Letting go is not easy and not too many live up to expectations(i.e. my son-in-law, who is a Vikes fan, fairweather,casual,weak). So find out how much time he likes to spend by himself or his buddies. Throw him back if he is a schlep. lol
