For the past few months, I have blessed and amazed at watching a beautiful father-daughter bond grow in our little family. I've said before that my Appa was and always will be my hero. Its been beautiful see that replicated with my little girl too!
Every morning, Ashwin is the one who gets her ready for school. I start her off on her breakfast and lay her clothes out but he does the rest since I have to leave early for my work. He helps her finish breakfast, brush teeth, gets her dressed, checks her school bag, gives her a "hairstyle" and watches 10 minutes of Thomas the Train with her on TV before putting her on the school bus.
Inspired by friends who are doing something similar (and by what my father used to do for me ... more on that later), Ashwin and Nanma have now started spending some quality time together away from home, every week . Our hope is that these times will continue on till she's married and maybe even after! When she grows up, I wan't her to find a man who will cherish her as much as her father does.
Did I tell you how thankful I am for these two??
