Lydia went to her first wedding last Saturday. I think she enjoyed herself. Her Aunt Allison was a bridesmaid.
She got to dance with her daddy.
I remember my first dance with my daddy. It was at a Father/Daughter Fifties Dance for Girl Scouts. Yes, I was a girl scout once upon a time... My mom made the poodle skirt I wore that night. (I promise if you check back I will find the picture and add it here.)
In recent years, I danced with him again at my wedding. My mom didn't make the dress this time, but she did help pick it out. A couple of weeks ago, I came across a book online called Dance Me Daddy. I have ordered it for Lydia. It is a darling book written by Cindy Morgan (singer/song writer) and illustrated by Philomena O'Neill. The book is all about that special bond between a little girl and her daddy. A bond that Lydia and Tim most definitely share. When the book arrives, I am going to put a picture of her dancing with daddy at this first wedding in the front of the book (the picture shown above). When she gets much, much, much, much, much...older I will be able to also put a picture of her dancing with her daddy on her wedding day in the back of the book.
I know it's mushy and sentimental, but aren't moms supposed to be.
