...she made me cry

On Monday my youngest daughter asked me if I would be interested in going on a field trip with her and her classroom. Knowing how important these kind of things are to her, I said that I would be happy to go.

So with that...I thought it was pretty much a done deal.

Today, while my wife and I were driving to the doctor's office, my daughter called to tell her mom that she was going to be giving me her lunch tomorrow because I would be needing one.

That was nice.

Now on our way home from the doctor's office my wife told me a story.

"You know your daughter really loves you." she said.

"Yes," I said.

"It was sweet of her to offer you her lunch."

"Mmm." I said.

"Do you know what she did the other day?" My wife asked.

"Hmm?"

"Her teacher said that he was only taking two parents from their class and it was going to be the first two parents who signed up for the field trip."

"Huh." I said.

"Do you know what she did?"

"What?" I asked.

"She got up at 7:00 in the morning so that she could get to school early so that she'd be the first in line so that she could turn in her permission slip. She waited in line for forty-five minutes so that her dad could go on a field trip with her."

I listened to my wife tell this story and then I cried.

The Love between a Daughter and her Dad is amazing. It's a special bond that we mother's can't always understand. Bask in the glory of her devotion to you. Hold her close and enjoy.
...I cried with you.

And now she's made me cry too. She really is one of the most tender-hearted kids I know (and love!).
