Last Friday night, my husband took my daughter to the Father-Daughter dance for Girl Scouts.
The night before the dance, he asked if he could take her to dinner. She accepted and they decided on Chili's.
While she was getting ready for the big night, he presented her with flower hair clips to wear.
I swear, I thought I'd have no heart left, it was melting left and right.
At the dance, they posed for a prom-style photo.
He was even a good sport and did Dancing with the Stars
lifts with her over and over until he was practically crippled from the effort.
It's times like these that make me misty-eyed and realize that she's growing up. Last week, Girl Scout Dance. Next week, the Father-Daughter dance at her wedding.
It's a good thing I keep treats like this Pretzel Toffee around for emotional heart-melting emergencies.
Pretzels. Brown sugar buttery caramelly stuff. And chocolate. Pretty good for drowning one's (happy) sorrows, no?
