Hand in Hand #WhatsTheStory

This is D and Hubbie, hand-in-hand after a great trip to the circus (post below).

We don’t get to take many pictures like this, D’s anxieties mean that she’s far more comfortable in her "safety zone" of her buggy and for years, she wouldn’t even let Hubbie push it, it had to be me. So, there weren’t the traditional hand-in-hand journeys at all.

But last week, she was full of chat and excitement about the show we’d just seen, oblivious to any strangers walking in the vicinity and just happy to walk along, next to her dad, chatting away.

It also meant I could walk behind with T and talk with him about what he’d enjoyed, which was nice too.

Some people may have walked past and thought "how old is she? Why’s she holding her day’s hand?"…let them, this was a lovely moment for them both.

There’s more pictures of the circus in the post below:

As it’s Monday, I’m also including my Music Monday, a song that D heard for the first time last week and loved. It seems appropriate with the picture too:

I’m linking this post up with What’s The Story.

Lovely moment captured there. So pleased it lived up to D’s expectations! My 13 year old will still hold her dad’s hand on occasion – never too old in my opinion x

How lovely and don’t worry what other people think! A girl is never too old to hold he daddy’s hand!
