Once upon a time in a savannah, amongst the tallest of trees, lived the tallest land animal, who was also the tallest of his kind, Peter the giraffe.

Peter had a long-long neck and a big-big heart…and he was known for two things…well apparently being the tallest and also being the best, funniest, most caring daddy ever …

Half the time, he had his daughter Nadya stay over. She was a beautiful girl-giraffe who was smarter than she was tall, and short of that, she had a big-big heart like Peter’s.

They would spend time together and have loads of fun, and it didn’t matter that Peter had to travel all over the savannah for his work, because Nadya knew her daddy was thinking about her all the time.

One day, Nadya woke up and looked out the window. The sky was grey and she didn’t like that a lot. She reached out and grabbed a blue crayon and tried to color the sky blue, cause that’s what you do, when things are not how you want them…  you change them. But she wasn’t tall enough…

Hmm, without a thought she called her daddy to come solve her problem, or at least give her appropriate advice.

Cause let me tell you something about mommies and daddies.

They have a mind full of all the advice you will ever need.They are never short of it and they have the right one for everything…

Yes, everything… Even on how to make a grey sky blue again.

Peter had a great idea and he would make a day of it.

He got Nadya a big hot air balloon and a magic crayon from the land of unicorns. A unicorn friend of his, owed him a favor. So now all they had to do was travel the sky together and start painting the sky blue again. And it was so much fun!!!! When they were done, they had a picnic under their freshly-painted blue sky!!!

And when it was almost night, Peter even gave Nadya a heart necklace made of moonstone and told her that wherever she was and wherever he was that heart was a reminder…

“If you look up in the sky and catch a glimpse of the moon while nighttime, we will be looking at the same moon, even from afar and it will feel like I am right there with you” ,he told his baby-girl.

Goodnight Nadya!!!!

Daddy loves you to the moon and back…

 

PS. Dedicated to Peter and Nadya!!! …and to all daddies like Peter, that take care of their kids, that melt when they show off their kids’ photos to others, that love being parents with all their hearts!!!

Είμαι η Φίλι και λατρεύω να γράφω… για τα πάντα!!! Μεγάλο μου πάθος όμως είναι τα παραμύθια! Μ'αρέσει να αφήνω την φαντασία μου ελεύθερη και το μικρό κοριτσάκι που ακόμα κρύβω μέσα μου, να εξερευνά ανενόχλητο από την καθημερινότητα, κόσμους που δεν έχουν ακόμα γεννηθεί… Αν θέλετε να βρεθούμε εκεί παρέα …απλά πάρτε λίγη νεραϊδόσκονη και ελάτε να με συναντήσετε.. Μην ξεχάσετε να φέρετε μαζί και τους μικρούς μου φίλους… χάρη σε αυτούς άλλωστε η νεραϊδόσκονη διατηρεί την μαγεία της… γκλιν , γκλόν και φύγαμε…
