Butterfly Kisses

Yesterday...Sunday...I had another perfect date with the most perfect woman to ever grace the earth..in my eyes...my beautiful blue eyed Princess..my daughter....
We started the day with me taking and treating her to the hair salon...
As we waited for her appt..we walked around and looking at possible gifts ideas for her....and of course being the lovely Princess she is she found some thing and gave me those huge ocean blue eyes...that daddy finds so irresistibly hard to turn down...but we waited as badly as i hated to...
As we made our way back to the salon....she held her tiny hand out to me..."Mon daddy"...i held my hand out and she wrapped her hand around my finger and strutted her way down the aisle with me in tow...I was the happiest most proud man alive..being accompanied but such a beautiful young woman....
As we got to the salon...she walked right in...climbed in the chair and sat as proud as could be....watching daddy in the mirror the entire time with a huge smile on her face...
I was and still am amazed at her beauty....and countless vision running through my mind...
Watching her get ready for her first school dance...her first date...graduation...and the one day being the most beautiful bride ever...
Just then she snapped me back...."Look Daddy Look" and as i looked she smiled to me even more beautiful...
Needless to say...my Princess walked away with a wonderful haircut and a new purse as an accessory...
Now it was time to dine her...
Her choice (as always) and she chose her favorite meal...
As we sat to eat she looks at me with those eyes..."Thank you daddy"...my heart melted as those words came out in the sweetest softest 2 yr old voice...
My smile could have match rivalled the universe in size....
As i looked at her...she began her meal....jabbering the entire time about everything her tiny mind could imagine....
We laughed and shared "bites" :-) enjoying every moment never wanting it to end but it did...
We left and came back to daddies to play...her favorite thing to do now is play bubbies guitar (tar as she calls it)
She would make noise and just giggle and laugh and take turns with me...daddy tar.....me tar...back and forth...both of us laughing...more so her and me being in sheer amazement...
We played dolls and games until time to leave and take her home..
Baby..you ready to go...no daddy...me stay and play with daddy....
Princess daddy has to take you home....
As i said that.....the biggest tears filled her eyes...(the kind that never fall but fill the entire eye)
She tilted her head....and in the softest voice that only God himself could imagine....she says...."No daddy...Peas...Peas daddy...me play with daddy"...
My heart shattering in a million pieces just as it is now as i write this...
Both of us reluctantly get ready and i drove my Princess home...as we walk in and remove our jackets she climbs onto my lap.....wraps her arms around me...."No daddy Peas" and she squeezed me so tight...my eyes tearing up...no wanting to let me go nor did i want her to...
And she looks up at me put both her hands on my cheeks...and kissed my lips and just held them there for what seemed like forever...and then she put her little face to mine and gave me the softest sweetest Butterfly Kisses on both my cheeks and then placed her head on my chest whispering....."Peas daddy Peas"...my eyes full of tears and they were flowing down my cheeks...
I have to leave now Baby Girl....Daddy will see you soon I promise.....I Love You.......Wuv you daddy (as she blew me a kiss) as i stepped backwards out the door and eased it shut....

What a wonderful story and bond you have with your little girl. She is lucky to have such a loving father :)

Don't be. Somehow I felt a little of your sadness on that day. The love that you have for your daughter is so amazing. Much respect to you...

I just reread this story and tears came to me again just as they did the day i wrote it...She is my Princess
