Friday, 25 October 2013: Two Hundred and Six Days Old.
As I sat beside the swim school pool today, I marvelled at how memories were being made before my very eyes.
As Hubby and Ayla sang the hokey pokey, splashing alongside a couple of mums and their sons, I was so proud to have such a wonderful, beautiful little family.
But what struck me most was how something as brief and simple as a 30 minute swimming lesson could become a life long memory.
Although nothing spectacular happened, the smile on Hubby’s face as he played with Ayla in the water said it all; he’s a confident, proud, loving Daddy who loves his little girl with all his heart.
I know that in 50 years time, when we’re sitting on our porch watching our grand kids play under the sprinkler, Hubby and I will remember that swimming lesson like it was only yesterday.
Because for those 30 minutes only Daddy and Daughter existed; happy in their togetherness and unabashed by their special bond.
