I’m Warren’s Daughter. Who then is Warren? He is my amazing, kind, nonagenarian dad. I love the word nonagenarian…it basically means he’s in his nineties. It’s pronounced no-na-ge-nar-i-an for those of you like me who aren’t familiar with it. As Warren’s Daughter, I hope to:
- Chronicle…the lessons I’m learning seeing my dad as Warren (an independent adult) versus my dad. You see, I didn’t grow up in an Ozzie & Harriet or Brady Bunch household where families sat around sharing words of wisdom. Don’t get me wrong…my parents were wonderful and took great care of me and my two sisters. But, I learned about life by watching it unfold. I’ve always been a quiet observer rather than life of the party type of gal.
- Share…the things I’ve learned to help my dad live a safe, happy and healthy life. And, in return make my life and hopefully yours a bit easier and better. From my color coded medication system which my dad likes and seems to impress his doctor’s to the best TV headphones and ways to hang a cane to avoid tripping.
- Help…navigate the uncharted waters of taking on additional responsibilities as our parents get older by sharing my stories. I know this is really tricky territory since everyone’s situation is different and also changes in the blink of an eye. But, know you are not alone in this experience.
Thanks for joining me on this journey!
