Daddy Daughter Date
This is the month of L.O.V.E!! What better way to show the love than by dating!! Sure, we always think about taking that special someone out on a date for Valentines Day…..but for this post, I have a few special “someones” in mind.
Can I just tell you that I love my neighborhood! It is soo full of energy and life. Especially since there are many kids the same age of my own which means my older girls always have a friend close by to have a play date with. It’s a common thing for them to receive an invitation to a birthday party often. Not only do they love the idea of a party, but getting the invitation is half the fun! A letter with their name on it…..it doesn’t get much better than that for a 8- and 9-year-old! So it was no surprise to get an envelope addressed to Maddy and McKenna on our doorstep. The difference was that this invite was not for just any old birthday party. This was a very special card, inviting them to bring Dom and enjoy a “Daddy – Daughter” Day at the park. YAY! I think I may have been equally excited about this idea even though I was the one staying home to care for the younger kidlets.
Come to find out that this idea was thought up by a 7-year-old herself. My friend’s daughter asked her mom if she could plan this date. Before her mom could say yes, she had already schemed the whole thing up in her head!! What makes this invite even more unique is that it was put together with glue by the master-mind of this whole event! You would never know that a 7-year-old was so talented! Check out this snazzy little card:
This is such a simple and inexpensive way to bond with the kids we love the most. Not too mention bringing our friends out for the occasion. I was just tickled to see the pics of Dom and the girls playin’ it up at the local elementary school park (….bottom pic).
It is so hard for Dads to find time to play with the kids. They are soo busy with work much of the time and we all know they need their downtime too. So for a dad to make time to bond with his kiddos is priceless!
How special is it for Dads to make memories with their kids that mean so much!
A big THANKS to Madison for hosting this fabulous
Date! Even if it is impossible for your hubby and kids to get to a park……why not have a “Daddy-Daughter” Date at home!! What better way to show your kids that you love them then by “dating” them this Valentine’s season. Love is in the air!
