I wanted to show you one of the cards that Angel made for her Dad for Father’s Day. Yes, I said one of them. She actually made 3 at school. This one is my favourite though. I love it because I know how much effort my little girl went through to print the message. She’s been working hard on occupational therapy in her printing class and it is paying off. You may notice that the Y in Happy looks a little off. Angel told me that she had to X it out because it wasn’t right and she fixed it below.
Knowing how hard she worked on printing this, it shows me how much she loves her Daddy. He’s the one who has been taking her to her printing class. Daddy is the one who gives her big squishes when Angel needs sensory input. He’s the one who rough houses with her when she needs it and the one who can get her to calm down.
Daddy is the one who has extra patience when it comes to Angel. Angel knows that she can push Mom’s buttons and get her upset, but Daddy is usually the one it doesn’t phase. They get each other. Daddy struggled in school with learning disabilities, so he really gets where Angel is coming from.
Don’t get me wrong, they but heads a lot too, but Angel is truly a Daddy’s girl and he’s more than OK with that. I love to watch them interact. Angel will often bring a book and climb into Daddy’s lap. Sometimes he reads to her, but she’s starting to read to him now too!
This is one of those cards that we’ll be holding on to for those days that aren’t so smooth so we can pull it out and smile.
