Date With Daddy

I think the relationship that my daughter forms with her Daddy is of utmost importance. She spends the day with me, and yes we have dates too, but Daddy-Daughter dates are a must around here. I've had the extreme luck to marry, what I think, is the best man walking this planet! Tall order right ;) Our kidlets observe on a daily basis how spouses should treat one another in a marriage, although sometimes we fail at this, which I think is ok because they also see how we pick each other up again and still love unconditionally. We are not perfect around here by any means. I think these Daddy-Daughter dates are a time to teach my daughter how she should be treated in a relationship in the future. So we make a big deal around here from start to finish!!

Of course, first we have to choose our outfit, a tough decision for this little girl. I gave her four choices so we wouldn't be there all day.

After 10 minutes of going back and forth she decided on this one.

Then we did her hair. She decided on braids and a pink bow.

Once she was all ready, Daddy nipped out to pick her up some flowers because every girl deserves flowers on a first date, no matter what! He knocked on the door and she answered it so excited to find Daddy AND pink flowers (her favorite colour) to boot.

Typically you don't kiss on the first date, but this was an exception ;)

She loved them! Her very first dozen roses and they came from her Daddy as they should. 

She wanted to bring a rose with her so we put them in some water and took one out for the road.

They dined on chocolate milk and fish n' chips. A gourmet meal if you ask me!

And most importantly, she was learning how to be treated by her future dates in her life, with respect and kindness.

We saved and dried one of the roses and I placed it in a window box with a photo from her first date with Daddy. It hangs in her bedroom as a reminder of her first date with her Daddy and she will have many many more before her dates are no longer ONLY with her Daddy.

So all you Daddy's out there, go ask your beautiful daughters out on a date and get teaching them how they should be treated in this world. It's the little things in life that matter and remember to leave your phone in your pocket, it is VERY rude to be on it in the presence of a lady ;)
