Why wait for the wedding?
Every year my daughter and I choreograph a Daddy Daughter dance. We perform it a our Home School Co-op “Talent” show. Talent is a stretch when it comes to my dancing : ) So why do I do it if I’m not the dancing type? I do it so I can make unforgettable memories with my daughter. You see, when we are practicing, I can’t check my phone or be pulled away by other distractions. It’s her and I and the music.
Over the last few years I have made a profound discovery. Whenever I attend a wedding, I focus mainly on the father of the bride. The reason is, his countenance tells me everything about the relationship with his daughter. More often than not it’s a look of regret and hidden sadness. It’s a look of “oh no, I missed it, why didn’t I invest the time when she was younger.” I realized I didn’t want to be “that guy.” I also realized I didn’t want the dance at the wedding to be a once in a lifetime occasion.
So every year my daughter and I embark on creating a new dance together and each year I must up my game to keep up with her. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
