Beauty and the Beast

Our kindergarten has a "dress like your favorite story book character" day every year. The children are supposed to come dressed like their character for the day. So little Miss Goose(don't tell anyone but her real name is Allie Grace......but I have always called her Allie Goose) wanted to wear her new birthday princess dress and wanted to be Belle. Her Daddy decided to surprise her and dress like the Beast. Parents don't dress for this.....usually the kids just come to school this way. Goose's Mama got off work early and got Goose from her pre-school and got her all dressed up. Then her Daddy walked out in his Beast costume. Allie (ooops Goose) was so surprised. You know what she said. She said, " I am the luckiest girl ever to have you for my Daddy." Yep, that's what my Goose said.......I have been telling you she was special. I think he said something like, "Let's do it." So he took her to afternoon kindergarten dressed as the Beast. I have more pictures but they weren't cooperating. My son teaches in the same district. (He was always the one that would honk the horn when he rode with me when I was in my clown costume)
When his oldest daughter was about three his wife said she fell in love with him all over again on this one day. He came out of the bedroom dressed in a suit. She asked him what he was doing. He said he was going to a tea party with his princess. K. Bug had a princess dress on and a tea party all set up. She got some really sweet pictures.
Now I know you are all thinking how special this son of mine is. Let me tell you something so sweet.....I think you'll think it was sweet. When K. Bug was a baby.....she always took a bath at night with her Mama. Well Mama was at teachers conferences (they both are teachers) and it was bath time. Well, Daddy (my sweet son) put on a bathing suit and took a bath with her. She was probably 10 months old. Isn't that cute.
My son is a little envious of his sibs that they have little boys. He loves those boys and loves to spoil them. I know he would never trade one of his princesses for a little boy.
The end.

This is my first visit and I love this posting. Very sweet. Too bad more fathers aren't directly involved with their little girl's activities. Your son sounds like a real sweetheart.

Debby, your son sounds like he is more than just a wonderful father, but a wonderful person as well. I'm sure he would like a son one day, but he can know that with a daughter, he will always be in their hearts ~ always. You never stop being a Daddy's girl. Great picture of the two of them. I'm sure his wife melted when he came out wearing the suit to attend his daughter's tea party.
