It’s a date

This morning Abigael and her daddy went on a breakfast date. This is a regular thing for them, and she gets very excited about it.

She must not think her daddy quite takes it to the level that she does, because last night she created a checklist for him to follow this morning when he got ready. The marks next to each one are things that have been checked off once she made sure they’d been done properly.

Hopefully, she keeps these standards up for good.

    Wow! He’s expected to have on a dress shirt and tie for breakfast with her? Those are some high standards!! LOL

    That’s very sweet. I love the list. My daughter and I do dates like this, too. I posted about it over at my place:

    Have a great weekend!

  4. That is so very, very sweet!

  5. Too cute. I’d say she had it covered. Those little check marks cracked me up, Karla.

  6. The “smells good” cracked me up! How sweet. You need to put that list away in a keeper box somewhere!

    I loved this Carla!

    People underestimate children don’t they.

    Small people with big minds!

  8. That is just too darn adorable! “More handsome shoes, smells good” – I LOVE it … such a girl. What a good chuckle this morning.

  9. I’ve heard of many father/daughter date times, but your daughter truly takes this too a new level! Hilarious! I was so excited so see that your husband truly gets it – these dates are invaluable, and are likely a large contributor to her being so secure. Please pass on my praise and blessings to your husband.

  10. ADORABLE!! that girl! :)

    How adorable! I love it! She knows she wants a special date with him, and he follows through complete with ‘smelling good’. Very sweet!
