Dear Daddy 2018 | The Open Home

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 Daddy Man, I love you sooooooooo much! You really are the man! The man that picks me up when I fall, fills my life with laughter and helps me to be my best. You are my encourager and my hero, I find courage because of you. Thank you for always having time to build the elaborate train tracks, for helping me scale the trunks in the Deep Dark Wood and for dating me with such charm and creativity. Lots of love and cheek bruising smooches from, Blossom xx

Dearest Daddy, now I know we don’t always see eye to eye but that is because you have boring grown up logic and I am in fact a crazy toddler. I happen to enjoy licking my sandy feet, flinging my nappies at inappropriate times and having my book pile just so. Thank you for embracing my little quirks and putting up with my inner diva. I love you more than Candie Gardens and chocolate brownies. Lots of love and Gruffalo snuggles from, Bubbles xx

Dear Husby, you are patient and you are kind. You are generous and you are humble. You are brave and you are strong. You take care of your ladies so very well and I love you for it. All of my heart, Wifey xx

Happy Father’s Day!

Dear Daddy Man, when I grow up I hope to be a bookworm, just like you! Thanks for reading the same stories to me again and again and again! Thanks also for being the best of fun, for teaching me about dinosaurs, playing hide and seek in the garden and even dancing the wiggly-woo. You really are my sunshine. I love you more than Boo and Anna’s chocolate cake – and that’s a LOT! Lots of love, thumbs up and zoidbergs from Blossom xx

Dearest Daddy, when I was born I thought I was going to be a mummy’s girl, after all she does have the milk, but then I realised that you give the best tickles and make the yummiest dinners so I have now decided I am in fact a daddy’s girl. This is why I save all my best smiles for you! I love you more than snuggly swaddle cloths and chewing my little nutbrown hare. Lots of love, raspberries and slobbery kisses from Bubbles xx

Dear Husby, thank you for making me a very happy lady by making me a very happy mummy. I love how much you enjoy being a daddy of girls, watching you with our daughters blesses my heart every day. Thank you for being the perfect mix of both gentle and strong, you lead your ladies well. All of my heart, Wifey xx

Happy Father’s Day!
