His charming way of making me laugh

Last evening....I had the awesome privilege of sitting with my dad for about 5 wonderful hours!  It was just me and my dad!!

From around 6:30 P.M. until almost 12:00 midnight, I found myself being totally entertained by his "Alzheimer's Comedy Show."

What is an Alzheimer's Comedy show, you ask?  It's my dad's charming way of making me laugh, over and over again, about the same stories that he has TOLD over and over again!  Occasionally, he gets two of his stories mixed up and they blend together to make a BRAND NEW STORY!  

Last night.....I found out some very interesting things about ME.  Did you know that I used to help make moonshine?  Yep....I sure did!!   Seems that my dad's sister and (ME).....were moonshine makers!   (Heaven only knows where this came from!)   BTW...his sister died before I was born!

I also found out that my mother (The precious lady that gave birth to me) is my daughter!!!!  chuckle, chuckle!!  Oh yes, dad was a little confused last night.   

I already knew this....but it was confirmed last night....that I love my dad!!!  I'm pretty sure that he told me about 50 times that he loved me!! I would say...."I love you too" and he would say....if you love me as much as I love you...then you love me a whole, whole lot.  

and....he would say...."I love you more than you love me" to which I would reply:  "What makes you think you love me more than I love you?"  The answer (every time) was:  "Because I'm bigger than you and that's why I love you more."  

How cute is that?  It's precious!!

I'm thankful for this time that I spent with him....

He certainly is a funny kidd!!    (my maiden name was Kidd)

Happy dreams y'all....

You have such a good attitude and giving heart. What a blessing you are to your sweet Dad and I know you are a joy to him. Sweet hugs!

This is just beyond sweet. Sometimes a disease like this can change their personalities and make them mean, but sounds like your dad has a sweet soul deep down. One thing he hasn't forgotten, and that's his love for you. How wonderful to have these special moments together.

How sweet... Bless his heart--and yours. I used to listen to the same stories over and over from my Mom before she died. She didn't have Alzheimer's --but was having memory problems at the end of her life, like Dad Adams. Dad would come out with some real zingers every once in awhile -which would make us laugh.

Hugs,
Betsy

You, my dear, are so blessed to have this time with your sweet Dad. He obviously loves you and has not lost that memory. Live life to the fullest for it's short.

I love your attitude towards your Dad's forgetfulness. The best thing you can do is be there and let him tell you those stories over and over again.

How sweet! It's great that you have patience listening to the same stories time and again. I'm sure it's not easy sometimes, but your dad obviously loves you dearly and you him. It's great that you can spend time with him. Great name too!

Wonderful that you had some time with your Dad. My grandmother is in the same condition, and I know it is hard to maintain that relationship!

Your attitude is so precious, and your father is one lucky man. Blessings to you both.
