I love my Daddy because…

I love my Daddy because…

He loved me first!

He gives the best cuddles.

He always plays fun games with me.

He holds my hand so I don’t fall.

He carries me when I am tired.

He spins me around on the ‘big chair’.

He learns new sign language to communicate with me.

He always asks me about my day.

He takes me on long walks in my trike or wheelchair.

He brings me on exciting holidays.

He knows me better than anyone (besides mommy!)

He sits with me through appointments and hospital stays.

He keeps me safe and secure.

He knows how to make me laugh!

He provides for all my needs.

He is big and strong.

He helps me to reach my potential.

He plays loud music for me.

He reads my favourite books with me.

He teaches me new things.

He shows me how to be careful.

He protects me from all harm.

He tells me how beautiful I am.

He treasures me, his youngest daughter.

He wouldn’t change me for the world!

I love my Daddy because he is MINE!
