Daughter Sets Up a Date for Her Hard Working Mum and Dad

My parents own a farm, so they don’t have time to go on very many dates. I made them dinner at home, complete with music, candlelight, and dessert! They ate, they danced, they cried. It may not be much, but they loved it, and I love them!

Daughter Sets Up a Date for Her Hard Working Mum and Dad

This was right after a long night milking cows. They drove home and saw where I taped a sign on the door “Welcome to The Robe, please wait to be seated!” (I wore my new robe my mom got me for Christmas as my uniform)

They came in, washed up from the farm, and had a seat. My dad used to sing Tim McGraw like nobody’s business so I had a playlist set up and started it once they sat down. I came out of my room a little while later to see them slow dancing in the living room to one of their favorites, “Remember When” by Alan Jackson.

I snuck around to the kitchen to get dessert ready and set it out for when they were finished dancing.

We had a girl’s night awhile back and I remember my mom sharing cute stories like their first kiss, how he asked her out, stuff like that. I realized that my mom is more than a mom, but she’s the other half to my dad. I thought a small date would send those same sparks flying and they could be cute and flirt just like when they first met.

They’re the cutest couple I know, and something like this really brings that out šŸ™‚

  1. I love it. I have seven siblings and we did this several times (translated: not nearly enough). Children thrive when they know their parents live each other. Such a good way for kids to say thanks and encourage their parents.

  2. What a wonderful story. It gives me a great idea for my own anniversary coming up. It’s hard for my husband and I to get out for a “date night”, but I know my kids would love doing something like this. Thanks for sharing.
