Moozles and I have monthly Mummy-Daughter Days, and she loves them. She occasionally goes to the cinema or out for a meal with her daddy, but we have decided that she needs more regular one-on-one time with him. Husband and Moozles had a great day. They visited the British Museum, went out for lunch and watched a film.
Before the Daddy-Daughter Day, I was trying to take a photo of Husband and Moozles. But Dubz does not like being left out of any photos. So here they are, my three favourite people (for those of you not familiar with seeing Dubz without a hat – he lost his trilby at the Natural History Museum last Sunday, boohoo).
I found this really interesting article, Children Who Spend Time With Their Father Have a Higher IQ. I do wonder why this is the case. Do dads engage in more intellectual activities with their children? I suppose that Moozles and I go shopping, see shows, have lunch – our time is focused on bonding. Perhaps dads focus on teaching. Husband did say that he spent five minutes trying to explain The Rosetta Stone to Moozles (she came home and mumbled something about language and ‘Gweek’, haha).
I grew up as a Daddy’s Girl, and have always cherished this aspect of my growing up. My father passed away a few years ago, I have so many wonderful memories that I can hold onto. And I want my daughter to have lots of lovely memories of her daddy. I think Daddy-Daughter Days are a great start.
