The father-daughter dance is a tradition in a whole lot of schools, and this 8-year-old little girl definitely looked forward to sharing that beautiful moment with her father.
She never thought that she wouldn’t be able to go. Tragically, her dad passed away shortly before.
Schools around the country recognize that a lot of kids feel left out because they don’t have a father or because their dad passed away, but the dance is also allowed for volunteers.
One of those volunteer escorts was police officer Nick Harvey, who is the Van Buren school resource officer as well. Before he decided to invite the little girl, Avey Cox, to the daddy-daughter dance, he asked her mom if she would appreciate the gesture.
“I reached out to the mother, [she] said it was okay… Because the last thing I want to do is get rejected by a second grader,” he said to 5 News. “So her mom talked to her about it and the next day I formally asked her if she would be my date to the daddy-daughter dance.”
The Arkansas police officer and the little girl were invited by the news station to share their heartwarming moment together, and you can just tell that it means a lot to both of them – even if it seems like a small gesture.
Other parents and volunteers alike made sure that this night would be one to remember, and Avey and Officer Harvey carefully coordinated their outfit and plans together.
Of course, their outfits had to match well together, and the pair also took a whole lot of pictures to look back on when Avey’s older. And arriving at the dance night? These two know how to do it in style. They rode a limousine to the event, but not before stopping over for some delicious pizza.
“It meant a lot because I actually got to go and see all my friends there,” Avey said while looking at Officer Harvey with a smile. “And then, I got to go with him and have a lot of fun.”
This particular moment in the interview is just so heartwarming and touching.
Officer Harvey won’t forget this special night either, as it was filled with funny moments and memories to keep forever.
“I embarrassed myself a little bit and danced when I can’t dance at all,” the police officer said with a grin.
The little girl then jumped right in. “Me and him dancing…”, she joked before she started fake crying.
The two then embraced in a hug in what can only be described as an absolutely sweet moment and the start of a special friendship. It’s important that this little girl, who tragically lost her father, has people in her life to look up to and who can help her.
When the dance night was over, the entire group went out to grab some ice cream.
The ride back home was just as cool – Avey was escorted in a police car!
This night truly meant the world for this little girl, and you can tell that Officer Harvey was touched by this kind girl and her tragic story. What may seem like a small gesture can actually go a very, very long way for this girl.

At 56, Cindy Crawford has finally accepted her age and wants everyone to stop calling her ageless
Cindy Crawford is the epitome of a supermodel. But, unfortunately, people tend to hold models to unrealistic beauty standards, especially as they get older. Crawford personally rejects any age expectations people might have for her and has some words of wisdom to share with everyone who’s afraid of aging.
Crawford defined the ’90s supermodel era.
When we think about ’90s supermodels, one of the first names that come to mind is undoubtedly Cindy Crawford. Her rise to fame started in 1990 when she appeared on the cover of British Vogue alongside names like Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Christy Turlington. Since then, Crawford frequently walked and posed for the biggest fashion houses and magazines of the decade.
In 2000, exactly 10 years since her career had skyrocketed, Crawford quit full-time modeling at the age of 34. Since then, the former supermodel has written a book, Becoming, worked as a spokesperson for several brands, and even launched her furniture line. Still, even though she hung up her modeling hat over 2 decades ago, Crawford is still battling with unrealistic expectations people have of others.
Getting older was tough to accept for her at first.
By the time Crawford started approaching her fifties, she’d started noticing her age in little things: “Your skin, your hair, your body. I take care of myself but I know that I’m a 51-year-old woman.”
And yet, Cindy realized that her concerns were more based on other people’s expectations of her. “I want to do my job well, and I want to deliver but I also know that what I have to offer now is different from what I had to offer at 25.”
The former supermodel also had a hard time with people online reacting to her changing appearance, saying, “I don’t need everyone on Instagram pointing out that I don’t look the same way I did when I was 20. I know that.” But after the struggle came acceptance, which we can all learn from.
Crawford has embraced her age and refuses to look back.
After some time, Crawford accepted that you can’t turn back time and it’s much more important to focus on the now. As she shared, “No matter what I do, I’m not going to look 20, or 30. I just want to look great for 50. There’s pressure on women to do the undoable, which is not age. But it’s about looking great for however old you are, regardless of what that number is.”
At this time, she also rejects the idea of being ageless and wants everyone to stop pushing that narrative. Crawford said, “Being told I’m ageless isn’t right, especially because getting older is hard enough, never mind that we live in a youth-obsessed culture.”
Ultimately, Crawford’s age became her sense of pride as it reflects all her achievements. “I’m not 25, so why should I be trying to look 25? Why do I want someone to mistake me for a 25-year-old? I’ve had children. I have all this life experience.”

North Texas twins born in different years
A Denton couple is celebrating their new twin girls who were born in different years!
Kali Jo Scott had to be checked in early to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Denton for monitoring.
Then came Effie Rose at 12:01 a.m. on Jan. 1, making her the first baby born at the hospital in 2023!
The babies are happy and healthy, weighing in at 5.5 pounds.
“We had kind of joked, like, ‘wouldn’t it be funny if…’ with the holiday and New Year’s Eve over the weekend,” said Scott. “It turned out that was more of a possibility than we realized.”
Both parents say they like the fact that each child gets their own day.
“I love it. I think it is hilarious and just super fun,” Scott said.
“It kind of happened so quick we haven’t processed all of it yet,” said father Cliff Scott.
They say it will help keep the fraternal twins with their own identity.
“You always still want to make sure they have their own individual personality and know that they are special and unique. So this gets to add to that special and uniqueness that some twins don’t maybe get,” she said. “One will always get the glitter and confetti of New Year’s Eve and one gets to kick it off with a brand-new year on New Year’s Day.”
The few-minute difference could have big implications for a few things.
Many youth sports are based around the child’s birth year, which could make for complicated schedules.
The new family says some of the financially-minded friends have reached out about the tax implications.
“Our friends were making fun of us for the tax deduction issue since we only get one tax deduction for last year, but I think that’s just fine,” Scott said.
