This month’s spotlight is on Randy Reid from Springfield, Virginia and his beautiful 6 year old daughter Maren. Randy, a stay at home dad and internet marketing consultant, has nothing but great things to say about his amazing relationship with this special little lady.
What is your favorite activity to do with your daughter:
Swimming: Teaching her how to dive and of course how to do a proper cannonball! Taekwondo: We regularly open the dojo (living room) before bath-time and playfully perfect our techniques upon one another. I think she really loves to beat me up.
Most Memorable Daddy/Daughter Moment:
This past Valentines Day: With one huge, heart shaped balloon (the kind that plays music when you touch it) and a box of chocolates, I woke her up singing and then asked her to be my Valentine. Then we sat on the bed talking and eating them.
Best Part of being a Dad:
Hearing, and especially, FEELING the heartfelt “I love you Dad” from her.
Hardest Part of being a Dad:
Groundhog Day!…the day to day feeling of routine tasks.
The Greatest Lesson You’ve learned from your daughter:
That it’s not only OK to express your feelings, it’s healthy.
