Jesi went through a phase where she was a little less excited to show affection for her Daddy. Fortunately, she seems to be a little less reticent about that at this point. Tonight I had one of those magical moments with her that makes being a parent worth all of the challenges that can go with the job. She wanted a back ride, but we were in the cramped hallway and very close to her room. I suggested a princess carry instead. The princess carry is when I cradle her in my arms and carry into her room. Her face lit up and she nodded excitedly. But instead of just having me pick her up right there and carry her the two steps into her bedroom, she got a mischievous grin on her face, turned around, and ran into the kitchen to the farthest spot she could find from her bedroom. She wanted the longest princess carry she could get. And of course, my princess got it!
Being a daddy is the best job in the whole wide world:)
