Daddy-Daughters Day

Zach is an amazing father.  He is involved in (almost) every aspect of our parenting journey.  From getting the girls up and ready in the morning to putting them to bed at night, Zach is right there.  He comes home from work ready and willing to take over kid duty.  Week-end time is family time.  He can play princesses and mermaids with the best of them.  And when he stays home for the day with the girls when I have other plans, Staley knows it's going to be special.  Because nothing can compare with Daddy-Daughters Day.

Daddy-Daughters Day has become a special tradition at our house.  Staying home for a fun day with Daddy is good.  But because he doesn't get to do that very often, Zach always plans something a little extra special for his days alone with the girls.  He's taken Staley swimming and to Monkey Joes.  Eating at a restaurant is usually involved...with dessert, of course.  One time Zach bought a Play-Doh ice cream shop for a little added at-home fun.  And a few weeks ago, Zach came home the night before Daddy-Daughters Day armed with over-sized construction paper, glitter, glue, and jewels.  While Adelie napped, he and Staley went to work on their creations...

and when the glue had dried and the glitter had settled, the end result was...

...awesome tiaras!

Daddy-Daughters Day is always something to look forward to.  And whether it involves swimming or dessert pizza or tiara making, I know that these special memories of time with Daddy will remain with our girls as they grow up.  And I love that!
