I'm the proud father of two amazing daughters (Madeline Marie & Molly Jean) that make me smile from ear to ear each and every day. This morning was a special one for me. I awoke at my normal time, tired, grumpy, not really in the mood for my day to begin. Quickly I found myself in the shower and ready to take on the task of waking up my daughters for school. For the most part, our house is very quiet in the morning, and that is what caught my attention first thing as I turned the water off and began to dry off. Both of my girls were awake, they were giggling, and I could hear my two dogs fighting over the toys we had picked our for them the day before. I knew the dogs weren't playing with them unprovoked, I knew my girls were playing with the dogs which meant my kids were already awake......Huh?
Awake, dressed, hair done, smiles from ear to ear, and the best moods I've ever seen my daughters in when heading off for a day at school. Today, was the perfect day for this Daddy.
So that has lead me to think about them all day. How fast they grow up, how sweet and precious the time has been since they were just babies, and how wonderful and fun the future is going to be watching them grow up.
I just wish they didn't get so big, so fast.
