This week I had one of those heart melting moments.
The ones where your whole body does a little jig and your mouth is fixed in a beaming smile.
Where time seems to slow down
Where the joy of the moment gives you a burst of energy that no can of Red Bull every could
It was Wednesday. I was working from home. The lady of the manor had gone out for the afternoon with Matilda to one of her many social engagements. As she walked towards the back door Matilda spotted that I was sat in the dining room working. And do you know what she did? Do you?
She burst in to smile. She started chatting. She bounced up and down in the lady of the manors arms in excitement.
About seeing me. Her daddy.
This was a very, very cool moment. There is also a suggestion of her starting to say dada when I come home or walk into the room. Now this may frustrate the lady of the manor, after all she is the one with her most of the time. But we all know little girls love their daddies don’t we?
It’s tough bonding with your baby when you’re a working dad who generally is away for the whole of their awake time, but slowly and surely we’re getting there. Plus this weekend is the first of our daddy only weekends as the lady of the manor is working both days. A perfect opportunity to get to know each other a little bit more.
Let the chaos begin.
P.S who can resist smiling at a little girl who closes her eyes and laughs every time you take a photo using flash.?
