I don’t have to even explain how close my daughter and I are. My daughter is 11 and was born 10 days before I turned 21 years old. I knew from day one the type of relationship I wanted to have with my daughter …
I could go on and on about our relationship and closeness but it really comes down to the fact that I AM A PARENT. My daughter can look to me as a true guidance in life, I am the shoulder to lean on, the ear to listen and the hug to fall into when having a bad day. I am the one who holds her accountable and teaches her to learn from mistakes.
You could almost simply say; I am her guiding light in this challenging world she is growing up in. In all reality, I don’t have to explain because the image above is the gift my daughter gave me this Christmas … I think that speaks volumes for our closeness.
Normally I do not celebrate Valentine’s Day but trying to “get into the spirit” this year. Usually I do try to get my kiddos something awesome, so today this is what I did to celebrate Valentine’s Day…
The little one and I went to buy one flower for each child, he choose his own since he was with me. The other two kids were in school, so I choose one pink carnation for the daughter and one red carnation for the son to be delivered to their schools by me.
After all of the flowers were settled, I decided to take my little man out to lunch. What the perfect little Valentine’s Day date he is. It was his choice, he chose cheese pizza at a local pizza place so he could play on the arcade games while the pizza cooked…
After our fun filled morning of Valentine’s Day bliss, I took the little one to school and returned home so I could get some work done in my office!
