It’s A PARTY.. but I’m not invited.

Little feet tap across the floor above my head, the perfect sound of toddler toes rushing towards a goal.

Squeals of delight and excitement bounce off of the walls and float down the stairs tempting me to join.ย  To run up the stairs and take part in the peek-a-boos, the horsey rides, and hide-and-seek.

But Iโ€™m not invited to this party.

I long to be present at these gatherings, to have the giggles come racing towards me, hands wide open, leaping into my outstretched arms.

But this is an invite only event. This is a daddy and daughter party.


She calls for him to play, to go outside, to cuddle; her desire to be with him and just like him filling my heart and making me yearn for the same admiration.

This is a special club.

Secrets whispered, forts built, projects planned together, all setting the foundation for a trusting, open, fun relationship.

A relationship that has to be just between them.

    Oh I know all about the party I’m not invited to!!

    I just imagine when he’s older, they will actually go places without me. Sigh.

      I am praying for fishing trips and drives for ice cream while I sit and do nothing

    Ahhhhh, I love it when daddy and kidlets have their little parties! There is something so sweet, and sexy, about watching a man be totally open and loving with their kids.

    While I’m sorry you have been given the boot in this situation, there are few things I find cooler than a relationship between and man and his kid. I love fully engaged, devoted, adoring fathers – epecially to little girls. Having trouble conceiving is frustrating in many ways, but sometimes, just knowing I have to wait for an unknown amount of time to see the special relationship between George and our child, is the most annoying of all. I am not patient. ๐Ÿ™‚

    This picture is so sweet. I could read the stories of their special bond all day. ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m so sorry Jen.
      One of my best friends struggled for years with infertility.
      It’s painful, heartbreaking, and a million other emotions.
      You will be soaking in the very same pictures when you meet your sweet baby.

    These are special moments even if you are not invited. My husband my daughter are having this same party lately. I love it.

      You right.. and I’m pretty lucky to have a guy who’s so involved.

    Natalie has her dad wrapped around her finger. I’m not sad that I’m not invited. I always say my husband was born to be a mother. He felt left out because he didn’t get to carry them. Plus, my two boys are mama’s boys. I’ll let him have the girl for a bit

    • multitaskingmumma
      September 20, 2011 | 8:13 pm

      Maybe the next one we have will be a boy.
      A mama’s boy.
      What a nice thought…

    I totally hear you. When my husband comes home from work it’s like I’m not even here. All three boys are all about their daddy. But I’ve learned to sit back, poor a glass of wine, and watch. Watch them playing and making memories.

    • multitaskingmumma
      September 20, 2011 | 8:13 pm

      what a great idea..
      I should go get wine, sit back, and just soak it all in.

    I’m thrilled that my husband and son have boys only time. I can’t WAIT until they go out together to do manly man stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The daddy-daughter relationship is SO important as well. My dad taught me to be a pretty tough chick. ๐Ÿ™‚

      My dad is awesome. I so want that for my daughter too and am so happy they are already establishing it.

    I really love when dads and daughters spend such fun time together. It’s so important for them to have that. Your daughter is a lucky girl.

      She is really lucky!
      I hit the jackpot when I found him.

    What a special relationship that is! Seeing my daughter and her father spend time together is always a beautiful thing. Yes, sometimes I feel kind of left out, but I usually let them be. You’re lucky to have such a loving and dedicated husband who is a great father to your daughter!

      You’re right, it’s important to swallow the feelings of being left out and soak in the beautiful picture of them playing together.
      I am lucky to have a great guy who loves his family so much.
