Chapter Description: After our picnic, it’s movie time. Nothing like enjoying fun and play with Daddy. I’m the happiest kiddo in the world!

Location: Forest Park, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America, Planet Earth
       I giggle as I waddle toward the parking lot while swinging Daddy’s arm. I smile toward him whilst my purple long-sleeve T-shirt flutters and my Pampers Cruisers diaper crinkles, “Thankies for bringing me out here, Daddy.”
       Brendan smiles down at me as he stops in front of his car and opens the passenger’s seat, “No problem, Stacey. I’m glad I could spend the day with baby boy.” He chuckles as he lifts me into my car seat and secures my five-point harness, “I still can’t believe we’ve been out here so long that the sun’s gone down.”
       I giggle and swing my legs whilst I watch Daddy enter the driver’s seat, “Time flies when you’re having fun, Daddy!” I smile as I watch Forest Park slowly pass us by as Daddy drives. “Daddy, where are we going now?”
       Brendan smiles at me through the rear-view mirror, “We’re going to the movies, Silly. That was on your list.”
       “YAY!” I smile toward Daddy as he returns his attention to the road. I’m so happy. Daddy and me get to spend the whole day together and I finally get to experience what it’s like having a daddy and having daddy days. This is the bestest thing ever!

Location: Galleria 6 Cinemas, St. Louis Galleria, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America, Planet Earth
       My eyes widen at the vast wall consisting of the front door of the red doored cinema opening, “Wow.” I smile down at Daddy as he carries me on his shoulders through the door. To my left rest the concessions stand and ticket booth, to my right rest the restrooms, and directly down the path from us rest ten theatres dotting the left and right of the long hallway that ends with a fire exit. “This place is big!”
       Brendan nods as he orders the tickets and pays $35, “I know. I figured you want to go to the best of the best with regards to cinemas.” He walks over to the concession stand and ruffles my hair, “What would you like?”
       I lick my lips and smile down at Daddy, “King sized KitKat and Large Mountain Dew!” I glance to the menu and poke Daddy’s nose, “Two king sized KitKat bars!”
       Brendan smiles at the concessions worker and pays for the snacks along with our Mountain Dews. “Alrighty.” He glances to the tray and lifts me off his shoulders, “Let’s walk the rest of the way. Daddy can’t have you on my shoulders and carry the food. Daddy doesn’t want you getting hurt.”
       I smile toward Daddy and nod, “Okay.” I turn toward the theatre hall and train my happy eyes on Daddy, “What theatre room?”
       Brendan reaches into his pocket to pull out one of the tickets, “What’s it say?”
       I dart my eyes across the ticket and waddle toward theatre room 3 on the left side of the hallway, “OVER HERE DADDY!”
       Brendan picks up the food and follows his little boy toward the theatre room. I think this is going to be a nice movie.

Location: Galleria 6 Cinemas, St. Louis Galleria, St. Louis, Missouri, United States of America, Planet Earth
       Brendan smiles he exits the theatre room with me waddling alongside him, “That was a good movie huh?”
       I smile toward Daddy and wrap my arms around his waist seconds after he stops in front of the men’s restroom in between theatre rooms 5 and 9, “Yeah! Neo in this was awesome! I really liked the robot guy too. THAT WAS AWESOME!” I throw my hands in the air expressing my happiness.
       Brendan kneels and pulls me into a warm hug whilst patting my padded bottom, “I’m glad you had fun, Stacey.” He chuckles as he rises with me held close and enters the men’s restroom. “I need to use the restroom and I think you need a new diaper.”
       “I do?” I dart my eyes around the restroom seconds after Daddy sets me on my feet to enter one of the stalls standing to my right. To my left rest sinks with mirrors, and directly at the back of the restroom rests a changing table with a trash can on the right side. I glance down to my Pampers Cruisers diaper and giggle at the yellow-green wetness indicator, “Heee…I guess I do need changies.”
       Brendan nods as he exits the stall and scoops me into his arms, “Yep.” He opens the changing table and lays me down. He sets my diaper bag at the end on the right and opens it to grab a fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper, Pampers Complete Baby Wipes, and Johnson and Johnson Baby Powder. “Daddy’s Little Boy needs new Pampers.”
       I giggle and smile toward Daddy as unfastens my wet diaper and lifts my legs to slide it away, “Daddy? Do you think Brian’s gonna be home by the time we get back?”
       Brendan shakes his head as he works on getting me dry whilst tossing the used wipes into my old diaper, “Nope, he’s spending the night with Denis.” Brendan lowers my legs and rolls my old diaper into a taped ball. “After he went bowling, he and Denis went golfing and then went back to his place for some video gaming.”
       “Oh.” I poke Daddy’s nose as he powders my uplifted bottom, “So that means you gonna spend the night with me, Daddy?”
       Brendan nods as he slides the fresh Pampers Cruisers diaper under my bottom, “Yep.” He brings the colorful circle decorated shell up to my belly and tapes the new diaper snug around my waist, “And Daddy’s Little Boy…” Brendan sets me on my feet with a loving pat to my freshly diapered bottom, “is all dry.” Brendan smiles as he returns my supplies to my diaper bag and shuts it.
       I wiggle my freshly Pampered bottom and giggle, “Yay!” I turn to Daddy and watch as he washes his hands. “Daddy?” I waddle over to him and wrap my arms around his waist. “Daddy will you read me a bedtime story?”
       Brendan dries his hands and turns to swing my diaper bag over his shoulder, “Sure.” Brendan kneels and boops my nose, “Walk or carry?”
       I rub my chin and yawn, “Umm…” I raise my arms and make grabby hands at Daddy, “Cawwy!”
       Brendan smiles at my baby talk and lifts me into his arms, “Sweet Little Boy.” Brendan kisses my forehead and sets me on his shoulders. He holds my legs in his strong hands and heads out of the restroom toward the parking lot. “Today was fun huh?”
       I smile down at Daddy despite yawning again, “Uh huh! I’m not falling asleep until you read me a story, Daddy!”
       Brendan chuckles as he stops in front of his car, “I hope you can stay awake, Stacey.”
       I boop Daddy’s nose as he buckles me into my car seat, “Imma stay awake.”
       Brendan kisses my forehead, “Alright.” and shuts the passenger door. He hums as he hops into the driver’s seat and starts the car for home.

Location: Brian’s Residence, Skyward Villas Apartments, Kirkwood, Missouri, United States of America
       Brendan smiles as he opens the door and walks inside whilst shutting it with his foot, “We’re home, Stacey.”
       My eyes snap open and I whimper when Daddy lays me down in my crib, “I FELL ASLEEP!” I jump to my feet within my crib and can’t help but smile when Daddy ruffles my hair. I train my smile toward him, “You still gonna read me a bedtime story, Daddy?”
       Brendan kisses my forehead, “Of course I am.” and pulls Dr. Suess’ Hop On Pop book from behind his back, “I snagged this from the floor. Maybe Daddy can help you clean your room tomorrow.” Brendan darts his eyes around the toy littered space and chuckles as he pulls my computer chair in front of my crib to sit down. “Are you ready?”
       I lie down and giggle as I kick my legs allowing my Pampers to crinkle while I smile at Daddy, “Yush! I’m weady, Daddy!”
       Brendan smiles at my adorable baby talk and opens the book, “UP PUP Pup is up. CUP PUP Pup in cup. PUP CUP Cup on pup…”
       ……
       My eyes droop as Daddy’s soothing voice acts as a lullaby. “I love you…Daddy…” My eyes droop closed as I lose my fight sleep.
       Brendan smiles as he watches his baby boy sleep peacefully, “I love you, Stacey. Daddy will be here when you get up in the morning.” Brendan rises and bends over my crib to kiss my forehead. “Sweet dreams.” He smiles as he heads out of my bedroom to allow me to sleep in peace.
