Of course I feel the same about both of my daughters. It’s amazing to me how love never runs out no matter how many children you may have.
As a dad of two beautiful daughters, this blog really impressed me. It has given me some good food for thought.
My daughters like to dance. Well, jump, spin, sway and twirl around the room and act like they are dancing! My three (almost five now) year old always wants me to dance with her and pretend she is the Bell of the Ball. This morning was no different, but I was late and trying to get out of the house to class. But the lyrics to Stephen Curtis Chapman “Cinderella” kept going through my head:
So I will dance with Cinderella
While she is here in my arms
‘Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella
I don’t want to miss even one song
‘Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight
And she’ll be gone…
One day she will be all grown up and will be gone, and these moments of joy will be a distant memory. I have to take all the precious moments I can, especially now that I am busy being back in school.
So, dad’s take these lyrics to heart and always treat your little girl’s as if they are the Bell of the Ball! Don’t let a hectic schedule prevent you from creating life long memories with your daughter.
I wrote this blog almost two years ago, just thought I would repost it.
I often feel like I’m herding cats when I’m out running errands with our girls. The second I enter any store the girls are off in two different directions investigating as many shiny things as possible.
Yesterday, we were picking up a prescription for mommy at Walgreens. I had them mostly contained, until the make-up aisles. I was leading the pack and from behind me I hear “ooh’s” and “aww’s” and “that’s sparkly.” I turn around and I see the girls touching everything, and trying to paint themselves with mascara pencils. They wanted to examine all the colors of nail polish, and even wanted fake eyelashes. I had to explain to Abby that she already has long eyelashes and she doesn’t need those. For the next ten minutes I’m standing there trying to get the girls to leave the store, and each time I get their attention they find something new to be distracted by.
Since the summer I have been working part time and staying home with our girls. This past morning I was getting our car washed and the girl inside took one look behind me and asked Cate,
“did daddy comb your hair”.
She than stated that she could always tell when dads did their daughters hair. One dad had put a hat on his daughter’s head.
Granted my hair styling skills are severely lacking compared to mommy. I can do a basic braid and one or two pony tails, and however feeble my attempts may be at styling my daughters hair, I give myself an A for effort.
