Date with Daddy
Ann Catherine went on her first date last night.
With her daddy.
She's been asking lately if Chris would take her out on a date. She wanted to go somewhere - just the two of them. He told her he would take her to any restaurant she wanted and she chose Tortora's - an Italian restaurant that she loves.
She was so excited she only slept for an hour at nap time and when she woke up she asked if she could get dressed. It was only 3 p.m. :)
Finally at 3:30 she wore me down so I let her get dressed. She picked out a dress and wanted to wear her sandals, a bracelet and a "pretty bow." It was precious. Seriously, I haven't seen her this excited about something in a long time.
The timing could not have been more perfect. We potty-trained Lily this week (and it went fabulous thank you very much. I'll post more about that later). Ann Catherine was such a big help but potty training boot camp at our house means not leaving the house for the week. The poor thing was stuck inside all week. And because I had to keep an eye on Lily at all times, I couldn't always give AC my attention. She needed a night that was just for her.
I also think it's good for my girls to have those special moments with their daddy. It's up to Chris to teach them how to expect boys to treat them. I want them to know that no matter what, their daddy will always be there.
She told Chris that she had so much fun and asked him if he would take her again. He said he would love to. I think he enjoyed it as much as she did :) And when Lily is old enough, she'll get her own dates with Daddy.
I filmed them before they left because when AC is older and "boy crazy" (perish the thought!) I want her to know that her first date was with her daddy. I'm sure it's the only date he'll ever approve of :)
