Every month my girls look forward to a daddy date. Emma goes in the middle of each month and Morgan at the end. Normally they go to the park or the mall. Sometimes they get ice cream or smoothies. But today Morgan is on a fancy date. She picked out her dress and shoes. I did her hair and helped with her jewelry. She added some sparkly lip gloss and they are off to dinner.
I remember Emma’s first fancy date. She was two years old and I was pregnant with Morgan. She got all dolled up and went out to dinner with her daddy for Valentine’s Day. He even brought her flowers. We realize that we are setting the bar rather high with these dates, but isn’t that what we should be doing? Long before they even think about boys other than daddy they will know what to expect and how to be treated on a date.
