As my girls get older and I realize that time really does fly when you are a parent, I never believed it until I have seen for myself how quickly our kids grow and you want to hold onto every moment just a little bit longer.
My husband and I are so blessed to have two beautiful girls who truly love each other so much. They show each other how much they truly love one another by doing the little things like; making cards for one another, getting a band-aid when their sister has a boo-boo, or getting a snack for their sister when they get one for themselves. They might make each other cry at times and argue (what siblings don’t fight?) but, in the end they are each other’s best friends and ours, too.
I love how much my girls love Valentine’s Day! They are girly girls who love flowers, cards and of course candy. My husband has the tradition of always getting them flowers and they look forward to it each year. A girl’s daddy is her first love and I have to give it to my husband he is definitely setting the bar high for the girls to find a husband who treats them as good as their daddy treats them and their Mommy.
This Valentine’s Day was extra special because it was the first time that my daughter and husband attended a Daddy/ Daughter dance at her school. They were both equally excited for their “date night” out. She wore a heart dress and my husband put on a nice outfit and his fancy shoes so that he could dance with his little girl. They both came home telling me about their fun night and what a great time they had at the dance together. They even got to dance to Ed Sheeran’s song, “Perfect” at the end of the dance together.
The little things that I love doing to make the girls smile is a festive meal whether it is a heart shaped pancake with heart sprinkles, or a festive lunch with a love note to let them know how much I love them or both.
