Why Every Dad Should Have a Princess

My husband walked in the door after a typical day at the office. We proceeded with the usual hey, how was your day? what did you do? anything interesting happen? and then he remembers something. Instead of his grab-n-go lunch my husband had a luncheon which he brought one of his officers to. At some point during the lunch the officer says “did you know you have glitter all over the right side of your face? A lot of it!”

He laughs and remembers the darn Cinderella dress we were coaxed into buying for our 4 year old Kaydence. Since the day we brought it home it has been coating anything and everything it comes into contact with in glitter, lots of silver, shiny, annoying glitter.

If nothing else, daughters keep life interesting … and sparkly.

I’m keeping my camera phone close for the day she decides to put makeup on her dad’s face while he’s sleeping. At the very least it’ll it teach him to use a mirror before heading off to work.

  1. Cat,

    That is also the sign of a real loving father when glitter all over his face doesn’t mater (make him upset). He just kind of goes with it.

    She looks really cute in her dress.

  2. I like that he was able to laugh it off. Because any guy that has glitter on his face due to an adorable little girl is a very lucky guy. :)

    Too funny! But so sweet and love you telling hubby to use a mirror before he heads out the door first (LOL)

  4. I would {love} to see how my husband would be with a daughter!

    • The difference would amaze you (and annoy you). I don’t know if all dads are this way but while there’s an incredible bond between dad and son, it’s very different between dad and daughter. He melts like putty in their hands. Which is as cute as it is annoying.

  5. Haha too funny! I never cease to be amazed by how a small amount of glitter can get everywhere…and stay there for so long!

    Love this story… and they’ll both treasure the memory, I’m sure. I remember tea parties with my dad before he went to work in the morning sometimes… no glitter involved there though. :-)

    Oh that is funny! It reminds me of the movie we watched last weekend where Owen Wilson’s character has his hair done by his young daughter while he reads her a bedtime story. I had to laugh because MY husband has sat for just this type of thing too. Tea parties, beauty shop, the WORKS!. And for him was times 3 with little girls. sigh…we will all miss those days.

  8. She looks adorable in her dress :) We have a sleeping beauty one that serves the same purpose LOL it’s glittering the life as we know it daily ;)

    A very cute little Cinderella. Having 3 daughters, we can certainly relate.

  10. Tonya H says:

    We have two boys and hopefully one day we will have a little girl. I think the bond between daddy and daughter is so sweet

  11. Haha! Too funny! She looks so adorable in that little dress. We have a similar one that my youngest wears almost every day. lol

  12. How sweet!

    It’s the little memories like that that will last a lifetime.

    Aww ! This reminds me of a time when I had to be around 3, and while my dad was napping, I kept getting in to my mom’s lipstick. I would give him a kiss, put more lipstick on, give him a kiss and the cycle would continue. lol ! My mom finally came in and noticed everything. Btw, she looks too precious in that outfit !
