Zippi's First Date

We have a little coupon system that has been running for the past year and a half. I've been meaning to write about it so often but have still not got around to it. Anyway, last week Liji received another coupon and chose an ice-cream date out with Dad. Our kids are completely movitvated by the coupons and LOVE one on one time so much. It gives us a chance to connect in a deeper way and inspires them to reach the goals they are working on.
Anyway, Zippi was really upset that she couldn't go on the icecream date too. She was crying and Brett saw that she wanted some special time with him too.
He gathered her in his arms, whispered in her ear and immediately the crying stopped and was instead replaced by a nodding, smiling, very excited little girl!
He had told her he would take Liji on his own and then come back for her and they could go out together.
She was over the moon!
She doesn't do coupons just yet but why should she miss out? he thought.
So true to his word, he took Liji out (who was ecstatic to get this coupon which he'd been looking forward too) and then came back for miss Zip all dressed up and ready for her first big one-on-one date with her Daddy.
They went to our fam's fave cafe and when he asked her what she would like, she said 'hot chippies' so that's what they shared.
Just wanted to record that so I don't forget!
Very special :)
