Tribute to Fatherhood Week

An oldie - I heard about a dad who always gave his daughters gifts on Valentines and thought it was the sweetest
thing ever, so one year we did the same. I shall have to remember to continue this tradition!

It is admirable for a man to take his son fishing,
but there is a special place in heaven for the father who takes his daughter shopping.

The Mr tries to take the girls on a monthly daddy daughter date. He has four girls and well there are four saturdays in a month. Each girl is assigned a saturday to spend some time with him. Sometimes we are too busy and fall off track, but usually realign ourselves often.

One of the first daddy daughter dates he went on Miss K wanted to go shopping for a makeup kit. She was like 6 years old. Daddy's first time. I think I recieved a phone call from that Daddy daughter date.

Umm where do I get what she wants from?

I don't know - look in Big W or whatever for a make up box. Sometimes they're cheap on sale.

*looks and finds nothing* and calls back

Well maybe it's more around christmas or something when that is available, just buy some lipgloss or the like


*hours later*

They arrive home with a very happy girl in possession of her first lipgloss bought by daddy.

Ahhhh its only the beginning.

Hard life being a dad of four girls.
