And then I warbled over the bacon

Scarlet's come down with a little cold so most of our day looks like this.
Earlier though, while I was making bacon and Ryan was tidying the counter tops in the kitchen, this happened:  

Me: *cooking at the stove*
Scarlet: "Wook Daddy! A cinna-nellya pincess."
Ry: *Hastily fussing with dishes, stops in his tracks, lowers himself do his daughters eye line and places a hand on the small of her back* "Oh Cinderella? Look at how beautiful she is. Look at her pretty hair and her make up. Wow and she has a pretty dress, see the sparkles on her shoulders? She has blue eyes just like Scarlet."
Scarlet: "Sewwww amay-thing!"
Ry: *kisses Scarlet's cheek*
Me: *immediate tears as I step away from the stove and look at Ryan.*  "That's sooo sweet
."  I warbled and gushed at him.
Ry:  *totally confused*  "What just happend??  *I nestled into his neck kissed his cheek between sniffles*  What is going on here?  Are you getting sick too?"

I loved how natural his response was.  He didn't even have to think to stop what he was doing and take that time out with his daughter.  Before Scarlet, Ryan could barely tell you one Disney character. Now, he delights in them all along with his little girl. I'm SOOOO SOOO thankful for what a natural daddy to a daughter that man is. ♥ ♥ ♥ 


  1. Disney and daughters bring out the best in men!

  2. I've done the same while witnessing my husband and son. I can only imagine how much more sentimental I would be if I got to witness a father/daughter relationship!

  3. I just got tears from reading it! My partner is also a good dad and doesn't your heart just melt?

  5. I do believe all of the concepts you have offered for your post.
    They are very convincing and will certainly work.
    Still, the posts are very quick for novices. May you please extend them a little from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.

  6. SO cute, tearyeyed. My daughter with her father gets me everytime. Question, I just made a blog because I watched you on youtube and just fell in love with yours. How do I like "follow" you? Is there a way?

  7. So this totally made me tear up, and then I got to the end, and laughed. "Are you getting sick, too?" Hahaha. He is such a goof. Ugh. I love you guys more and more. (In a totally not creepy, stalkerish, type way!)

  8. I would totally have done the same thing! Soooo sweet <3
