When our kiddos were teeny-tiny, HubbyHubby used to drive a work van with ladders on the top. Around 5 p.m. or so, we could hear his truck making all kinds of noise as it got closer to home.
When we heard his truck, you would think an actual king was arriving. We would shout and cheer and get all excited. The girls and I would greet Daddy at the door with hugs and kisses and crazy happiness.
We treated him like he was a warrior returning home from battle.
Today, my girlies are 7, 9 and 11. When Daddy comes home, we still greet him with excitement.
How can you teach your children to cheer for Daddy?
Think of something your hubby does that the family can cheer about.
Maybe it's Mommy who comes home from work and Daddy is cooking dinner.
You could rave about the dinner that your hubby made.
Maybe Daddy works from home.
When Daddy comes out from his office, there could be hugs and kisses and squeezes.
Maybe your hubby takes the family out to dinner on Friday nights.
You could teach the kiddos to get excited and thank Daddy for the special treat.
