Hi Everyone! my name is Amber and i am excited to be doing a guest post today! A little about me, I am a stay at home mom of two, a 6 yr old daughter and a 19 month old son. Also i am a wife of a power lineman. Never a boring day here in this house
Well, I am not sure about other daughters out there, but I know mine loves her one-on-one with daddy.
It’s a great opportunity for bonding. Daughters really look up to their dads as role models, he is their “first love.” The bond they share now can last a lifetime. She will always remember those dates and its something she can look forward too, after a long week of school
“Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a dad.” – Author Unknown
“To a father growing old, nothing is dearer than a daughter.” - Euripides
I thought I would give you some daddy/daughter date ideas to pass on to all your men out there…
Pick a day out of the month, and plan a date:
Go to a movie, share a bag of popcorn and soda.
Have dinner, share a dessert.
One of my daughter’s favorite summer activities is to go fishing with her dad, she likes the worms
Start reading a novel together.
Surprise her by checking her out of school early for a lunch date.
The list can go on and on, but its good to find time once or even twice a month to have a date with your children, one-on-one.
Here are some cute daddy/daughter books:
I Loved Her First - Heartland
Butterfly Kisses (Shades Of Grace) – Bob Carlisle
I am now married and I too used to have dates with my dad. Even though we are miles apart, we still talk daily on the phone. Even though we are grown, we still need our dads and we are still “daddy’s little girl.”
What are some fun ideas for daddy/daughter bonding??
