There are no words to effectively define how I feel when Bella gets a story read by her papa via Skype. She sleeps a little better because she’s happier. I get a little break and I get to hear hubby read. He’s a much better storyteller than I will ever be. (is there a boot camp for storytelling?) so this photo was taken last night, while Bella, who is suffering from a chest cold, is camped out beside my bed. Sniff. (concerned parents, don’t worry, she was warm and we have heating in our floors)
And for those readers who’ve noticed, that’s a Daddy Doll there. It is an awesome product. I didn’t have a DaddyDoll made when I deployed in 2010 (I didn’t have a full length photo of me in uniform ready) but I did have the same company make 2 throw pillows with family photos from outside our home the morning I flew out. They are displayed in our living room today. I totally recommend them for not just military deployers, but for any loving parental figure who is away from a child for any length of time!
