I just met my daughter for the first time about a week ago and now she is coming to stay the night with me in my apartment. There was a bit of awkwardness we have been fighting through, but things were looking pretty happy. My daughter’s name is Aribella and she is about 9 years old with a cute, warm smile and positive, bubbly attitude.
We are riding the elevator up to the 23rd floor of my apartment building and I notice she is highly afraid to let go of the railing on the inside of the elevator cart. She fidgets with her hand against the railing and as we talk I reach my hand out for a high five she smiles and gives a genuine, warming laugh, but quickly grabs the rail again. I give her hand a high five a few more times and I see it makes her smile and forget about the elevator and the rail for a bit, but I stop and smile at how adorable and how much it is great to have met my daughter and spend time with her.
I knew she was excited and so was I with the games I had in my arms, hugging them while I held my paper and mail in one of my hands. We had made quite a bit of progress and were only a few more floors from my level and we would be getting off. I was talking to Aribella about school, and how excited she was to play some games with me and she was very excited and really liked math in school, she said smiling up at me.
As I looked down and smiled beamingly at her, we reached my level and got off the elevator.
