So during the last three days I have been away at scout camp. Sure it is fun spending time in the outdoors with a bunch of young men. All the while missing your cute little family. I definitely had a good time camping but missing my two girls added some clouds to my sunny day.
Apparently I was missed too. I get home and my little girl was super excited to see me. Not only excited to see me but needed (yes my little girl seems to need a lot of things now a days. I need her to figure out the difference from need and want.) me to take her to the movies. While I was gone my wife and daughter went and saw the Winnie the Pooh in theaters. The second I got home she started telling me about this movie and how I needed to take her to it.
Being the great dad I am I took her (and my wonderful wife) to the movies. My little girl climbed onto my lap and watched the first third of the movie without a lot of movement. It was actually very cute. Sure she lost some interest in the movie and started bouncing around but still I was always the focal point of the bouncing.
Nothing makes a dad (or at least me) feel more important or loved than a reaction like that. I missed my little girl while I was gone but apparently not nearly as much as she missed me.
My little girl wasn’t the only one I missed. I missed my wife. It is good to be home with her by my side. I am thinking she missed me too. I think I will give her a kiss right now just to make sure.
It is good to be loved by my two girls.
