daddy-daughter date

this morning, my husband and emma are off on special breakfast date.  they try to do a daddy-daugther time once a week, but it's usually a stop at a coffee shop for a little snack, or (in the summer) slurpees at the 7-11.

but this morning date is special.  emma even got a note inviting her to the special occassion (good thing she colored in the "yes" box).

















daddy put on a tie, and dressed to impress.  we bought special tights for emma to match her kilt, and i braided her hair because dad likes it that way.  and no one else gets to go to breakfast.  just the two of them.


















okay, i'm getting a little choked up here just thinking about the significance of having these special daddy-daughter dates.  

these daddy-daughter dates play such an important role in a girl's life, because dad is the primary male role model she will always look and compare to.  when men come calling (i hope not for a LONG time...maybe when she's 30), emma will know exactly how she should be treated because of the way her daddy treated her. 


it is such a beautiful thing.

Wiping away the tears (I know. I'm ridiculously emotional). Her future husband will have a lot to live up to when being compared to her wonderful daddy. Believe it or not, Layla's favorite daddy dates are to the grocery store- she always gets a cookie and likes to help with the shopping.

How special (it made me tear up a little too!!) You are right, Prasti, those dates are such special times. I still remember daddy daughter dates I had. Lasting memories.

Prasti, this is so precious! I'm so glad that they have such a great relationship and that it will continue for the rest of her life!

Hmm, in grade school at JIS you were OK with a dad/daughter dance but you sure didn't want to have anything to do with a father/daughter day in high school. You didn't think it was cool. ~Mom~
