What a daddy will do for his girl

Normally my hubby isnt remotely interested in ‘girly’ things.  He’s happy out in his shop or garden, building and improving, leaving dolls and clothes to the girls.  But when it comes to a little girl’s birthday and a trip to the store for a new stuffed friend, John can become surprisingly interested in stuffed animals and their little clothes.  Granted, he lobbies for denim, leather, and leopard print clothing.  But watching him joining in the shopping, and holding little clothes up for my daughter to admire tugs at my heart in an unexpectedly sweet way.  He’s a good daddy.


  1. I remember doing that with my daddy. It is a very precious memory. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Not only is that beautiful to see, but just thinking back not too long ago when they had just arrived. God has glued y’all into one, big, sticky mess of a family!!! And it is awesome.

  3. I think of all the hours spent on a saturday and the clothes shops he went into with me to find the “ultimate” thing for me. I am not always the daugeter I should be and try to be good for him.There is no one I admire more in this world. thank you for the memorie also xxx
