I love having daughters. It is absolutely awesome. However I was horrified when I found out I was having not one but two of them, but over time all that fear has turned to incredible joy – until of course they become teenagers. The things you do once you have daughters are just a bit different than when you have a son though. With my son we ride 4-wheelers, fight with swords, shoot BB guns and bows and arrows (yes I know girls can do this stuff), and with my girls I’m getting my nails painted, wearing tiaras and dressing up in girl clothes, and I have to admit that I enjoy it. I enjoy it for many reasons, but mostly to see the joy in their eyes when daddy wants to do all the girlie things that they are into. I know that it won’t be too many years from now that they will push me aside a bit when they get older so I soak up all the things that I can now to build that long lasting relationship.
With pleasure I show you the many things I have done to bond with my daughters:
I do all of these things and I love every single second. I’ve heard that some dads refuse to do such things and I feel extremely sad for them and the magic and joy they are missing out with their princesses. If you are one of those dads, put aside whatever is keeping you from doing these things and I promise you you will experience a feeling like nothing you’ve ever experienced or will experience ever again in your life. Today is a new day, seize it before it’s gone.
