We read through the book several times. S was captivated by all the possible reasons that she could love her Daddy. By the fifth re-read request she was reciting it with me.
Then we wrapped Daddy's gift in a piece of her artwork. Well, she wrapped it...with me hovering like a control freak.
We snuck into our bedroom to wake up Daddy (they were too excited to allow a sleep in) and he sleepily enjoyed our squeals and hugs and kisses.
S helped him unwrap his present and then proceeded to read it to him using the pictures as cues for why she loves her daddy. The Big Fella was astonished and I, just a little bit proud.
Is crawled up for some kisses too.
Happy fathers day to you my love. You know what you mean to us - we told you all the why's of loving you in the book S read to you. Happy Days. x
