I have a counter-attack to those late nights my hubster pulls
when he cannot see our kiddos & they, namely, our big girl, absolutely PINE for him.
Enter the Daddy/Daughter Journal, a book for them to write notes to each other–
She decorated the book with drawing, writing, stickers, & a ribbon, which she practically ties into bows herself. This was a Hanukkah present from K to her Daddy, as I knew busy nights & weeks lay ahead for us.
We know it’s the plan now, and it’s even a sweet activity to even (gasp) look forward to when the late nights happen. And oh, how they do.
The beautiful thing, besides the sweetness of a book of love letters between them is that this is such a great move for emerging literacy & words that matter. I hope they keep this book writing up–
For now, of course, I am dictating, but K also wants to do writing herself, & really-they can use this to communicate so much, about their day, asking & answering questions, …sometimes they even leave treats next to their book.
“Can you not go to work today, Daddy?
Because I just love love you so much!”
Here’s to the sweet love between daddies & daughters, particularly those under this roof.
