I made reservations for these two to go to Chick Fil A a few weeks ago for a Daddy-Daughter Date. I believe she had more fun than she thought she would! I let her pick her own outift and supervised, just to make sure she didn't look like a colorblind person who has no concept of pink. I also let her wear this sweater, which she loves. She was SO excited to go on a date with her Daddy and even more excited when they gave her ice cream. I hope that they spend lots of time 'dating' in the years to come. I know that he will be able to teach her lots of things about how all the men in her life should treat her. I pray daily that she embrace the qualities God gave her. I know that her stubborn attitude will one day come in handy. One day when peer pressure is strong and she's being asked/told to do things I'm not happy with. Her 'I do it by myself-leave me alone-I can make up my own mind' attitude will be beneficial to her.
Right now, that attitude is trying for my parenting... but I'll take it.
