SOCS: Daddy Daughter Moments

I love watching my daughter with her dad. I see the love and adoration that she has for him – the complete and utter trust and love that has not yet seen disappointment or heartbreak.

Watching him with our daughter is completely different then the bonding moments he had with our son at the same age. I often think of the relationship that my father and I have and truly pray that theirs doesn’t mirror ours but surpasses it.

Daddy's Little Girl

While I was close to my mom, I can honestly admit that I was much closer to my dad growing up.  He typically was the first that I would go to with my tears and problems – trusting that he would have the words (and hugs) to make everything right.

I recall a spur of the moment trip to a bridal store when I was preparing for my wedding. We were en route to who knows where and I spotted the cutest little shop and had to stop. I knew that it was the absolute last thing he wanted to do, but I put on the “Daddy, please” look and pout. We stopped. Picture my 6 foot 6 inches tall, 250+ father in the midst of dresses, lace, and just plain fluff. I still giggle when I think of the look pure mortification on his face when he reality set in to what he’d gotten himself into.

Daddy's Princess

I tried on countless dresses that day and left without purchasing any of them. However, what sticks out most about that day is that he patiently sat and critiqued each one of those dresses I tried on (the man has some serious fashion sense!). As we got back in the car, I remember saying “You’re the best Daddy” and his typical response of “And don’t you forget it” brought a smile to my face.

Dear Daddy

When I watch my daughter and my husband, I hope that they share moments like that. That when she can’t come to me, she feels comfortable confiding in him. I pray that he has the words and the patience to deal with her “Miss V” moments. Dresses, tea parties, school dances, and all things diva – he has no clue what he’s gotten himself into.

Such a wonderful post.. I feel the same way when my husband is with his grand-kids. They all adore him, each for a different reason. Our kids and our grand-kids will always know that they are loved.

Wonderful memories! Your little girl is so blessed to have such a great daddy. My daddy wasn't like that, though I adored him and miss him very much every day now that he is gone. But my man is an incredible father to our daughter, and I am so grateful for that. He has such a way with her, and she is his princess and she is totally in love with him. Thanks for sharing such sweet thoughts!
