Ever parent has special moments, sayings, or routines that they do with their child. I have several in place with my daughter, Danni. These instances are fun and make you smile internally and externally. Then one day you turn around and the little baby is a toddler and your turn around again and she is a kid. This is the sotry of one of those time.
Ever since Danni could first speak, she has always been inquisitive. Her first phrase was “What’s that?” I always answered with what it was. I believe that is how she learned. The other question, she always asked was “Daddy, wha-cha doing?”
She would sing it. That is what made it special. I would sing back either what I was doing like “Driving you to school” or “Loving you.” She really got a kick out of the “Loving you.”
The other night, the whole family was sitting in the living room watching T.V. Dnani was in her mommy lap and I was sprawled out on the couch.
Danni said, “Daddy wha-cha doing?” but didn’t sing it.
I replied, “I am not going to tell you unless you ask correctly.”
Danni: “What ARE you doing?”
My heart broke. It was the end of an era. I looked at my wife and Chelsea said, “I didn’t teach her that.” I looked at Danni, a little sadly, and said, “Watching T.V. What are you doing?”
Danni: “Loving you!”
