Dear Daddy Man, what’s your bestest thing to do with me? My favourite thing to do with you is rock climbing and rock-pooling. Or maybe it’s swimming or playing trains? Daughter dates with you are also pretty special so I think perhaps that may be my bestest thing, but then I also love the impromptu dance sessions in the kitchen and playing hide and seek will never get old. There are just too many fun things to choose from! Quality time with you is just my bestest thing to do because you really are the most wonderful Daddy in the whole wide blooming world. True story. Lots of love and sweet smooches from Blossom xx
Dearest Daddy, you make me feel so big and brave! So brave in fact that I can whizz down ginormous slides, face giant octopuses and laugh in the face of fierce alligators. When I grow up I really will walk round the whole island with you because I’m going to be tough and strong and determined just like you. Here’s hoping you can put up with my cheeky antics and constant jibber jabber for 12+ hours, but then you put up with Uncle Chi Chi for that amount of time, so why not me!? Lots of love and fairy kisses from your travel buddy, Bubbles xx
Dear Husby, how blessed we both are to be raising these girls together and how blessed we girls are to have you in our lives. You love us and nurture us, protect and provide for us and we love you for it. Thank you for taking care of the big things and being there for the little things. All of my heart, Wifey xx
Happy Father’s Day!
Dear Blossom, quality time with you is just the sweetest thing because you really do know how to enjoy the simple things in life. Trips to the library, strolls through town, sipping milkshakes and sitting on random green stools – all are enough to fill up your love tank when done together, it sure fills up mine too. Dear Bubbles, your big smooches actually bruise my cheeks you love me that much! Beneath your loud, raucous toddler exterior there is a tender heart and affectionate soul. Thank you for stopping randomly in the day to tell me you love me and calling me back into your room at night just to make sure I know. Dearest Daughters, thank you for loving me so fiercely and sp faithfully, your love for your mama gives me wings.
What little things make you feel loved?
Dear Blossom, you recently asked me what my best thing to do is and this right here is it. Living, loving and learning with you girls. Sweet and spontaneous days like this always make up for the tough and the trying days in between. Dear Bubbles, today we laughed and today we cried as your toddler tantrums continue to stretch us both to our limits. But amongst the lows there are also the highs and today I choose to remember the story time snuggles, the early morning giggles and your eager green fingers. Dearest Daughters, may you hold on to the good and let go of the bad, because life is sweetest when it is savoured.
