Happy Birthday "Daddy"

Today's gift is happy birthday daddy.

I guess by the title of my post you can figure out today is my husband's birthday.

For his special day he went to my daughters school today and had lunch with my oldest ( he had gone not too long ago and had lunch with my middle daughter when she was friend of the week).  I loved listening to him talk to her tonight when he came home from work about their lunch together.  He said when she saw him in the hall she just lit up and was saying "daddy" over and over again.  She definitely loves her daddy!

But I think it is also different when daddy goes up to school versus me, as they see me there weekly. Seeing daddy at school really is a special treat!

After dinner we had birthday apple pie with ice cream (blue bell of course!).  When we sing the happy birthday song if my daughter with Rett Syndrome can say the person's name or an approximation, we don't say the birthday boy/girl's name...we let her say it.  She loves this part of singing the birthday song.

So tonight when we were singing...."happy birthday dear....", we looked at her and she just grinned from ear to ear, looked right at my husband and said the most sincere and loving "daddy".  Wow!  Talk about a present!

They truly have a special bond and you could see it in their eyes tonight. I don't know who has who wrapped around their finger more....but I'm going with my daughter!

Here is a quote for today....
