The Husband’s had a very tough time lately, as you’ll know from my recent Word of the Week post. On the worst of these days, I explained to Boo that Daddy would love hugs from her that night, and for her to be a very good girl. She nodded and said ‘OK’.
Half an hour later, she came up to me with her little writing set, and told me she wanted to write a note for Daddy, to cheer him up. My heart melted.
It says, ‘to daddy, I love you (with a heart there), and then her name, which I’ve ‘egged’ out! She then thought about what Daddy likes best, and came up with cake! So that’s a very long cake with a couple of candles on it.
He’s not a sentimental sort, but he really appreciated his letter and has kept it.
To then make his evening even easier, she decided than rather than expect him to read her a bedtime story, she would tell him a story instead, so she practised and practised a tale until he came home and she could share it. It was about a turnip, complete with actions 😉
I was so proud of her, and I know the Husband cherished it.
