#250posts24hrsAAPI - 41: I Like Seeing My Viet Baby Eat Phở

Saturday, May 20, 2017

As an Asian American dad I can't help but sometimes just get all giggly when my daughter (and I'll have to come up with a name for her like K-Wife) eats Vietnamese food like phở. There's just something about seeing your child eat the food from the Motherland that in some ways says - she's doing okay, I'm at least giving her something - because while Asian, I'm still American, and there are those times when dinner consists of pizza and whatever else I can find around the house at times.

So in some ways as well - I guess it just makes me feel like I'm doing okay as a dad - and as an Asian American dad, and a dad of color, I do sometimes feel some extra weight in that department.

And I'm not saying her eating Viet food is the end all be all of dadding - but it makes me feel good that she likes it and that I haven't corrupted her taste buds on just things like Captain Crunch.


Apparently my dinner which is some pad thai (thanks to K-Wife) is also tasty for my daughter too.

She's a snuggly bunny btw.
