Louis and Lily had their first daddy / daughter date a few weeks ago. Lily is a daddy’s girl, so it didn’t take much to fuel her excitement about the evening. Tickets to Disney on Ice and a new dress were purchased, and a plan was made upon Lily’s request to eat at a restaurant where she could eat a quesadilla. Lily marked off days on her calendar in great anticipation. When the long awaited evening finally arrived I curled her hair, painted her finger nails, dressed her in a new dress and gold shoes. She was watching out the living room window waiting for Louis to arrive home from work – hoop skirt and all. It was precious! I wish I was better with words so I could describe the sheer delight of this little girl when Louis walked through the front door with flowers. There were squeals and giggles and kisses.
Louis’ act was a hard one to follow, but Lily and I braved the holiday madness and went Christmas shopping together. She wanted to get a Christmas present for her daddy and Sunshine. We had fun together. I think I told her “no” at least hundred times over the many princess items she insisted she needed for Christmas. We wrapped up the evening at the movies. This was her first theater experience, and I’m pretty sure she enjoyed it…
and I did too.
Good, sweet times with our little girl who fills our days with funny faces, silly rhymes and jokes, laughter and joy…well, most of our days.
