Daddy has always selflessly been there for you, right from changing your diapers to teaching you to drive, your father has taught you everything. The bond that fathers share with their daughters is simply precious. Here are a few great things about dads that every daddy’s girl can relate to
“Any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a dad.”
― Anne Geddes
They say a mother’s love is the purest of them all, but I believe that a father too loves his daughter/s no less. They’re our heroes, knights in shining armor who protect us from everything bad in this world. Our mommy gives birth to us and caters to all our needs, but the only reason we enjoy our carefree childhood is because of our doting father.
Even as a young adult trying to make something of myself, I sleep a lot better at night because I know that my dad is doing all the worrying for me. A bond that a girl shares with her dad just can’t be described in words. Simply put, he’ll always be the most special man in her life, and she’ll always be his precious little darling.
Here are some things that will put a smile on the faces of all the daddies out there, because their little girls know that they are simply the best!
1. No guy will ever be as good as your daddy.
It doesn’t matter if he’s an astronaut or rock star or both, no one, ever, will even come close to being as great as your dad. To put it simply, he’s superman and you know it. There’s nothing on the face of this earth that he can’t do! He’ll pamper, spoil, and never hurt you, and the best part is he wants nothing in return. Even if you buy him a pair of socks, it becomes his most prized possession! Not to forget that there are a few things that you’d only share with your dad.
2. Daddy’s opinion is everything.
Of course, his opinion means everything to you because at the end of the day, daddy knows best. If he says something is not right, you know it’s not right! May be, that’s why only the best of the guys you date will ever get to meet your dad, and no matter how great he might be, he’ll have to face the wrath of your father.
3. You still wear daddy’s old clothes.
Not even a cashmere sweater worth $600 would ever come close to the comfy warmth of that old shirt of his that you brought along with you when you left home. You wear it at the end of a bad day, sit with a tub of ice cream and give him a call just to hear his voice, and he instantly knows how to make you feel better.
4. He will always be there for you no matter what!
Doesn’t matter how old you are, you know daddy will always protect you. He’ll fight the world if he has to, just to make sure that not even the slightest harm may come upon you. If he could, he’d shield you from all the pain, anxiety, and everything else for as long as he lives.
5. You have a lot of inside jokes.
Yup, that’s true! Sometimes, you don’t even need words, you just glance at each other and the two of you just burst out laughing. You’ve shared all your lives together, experienced or at least heard of each other’s hilarious moments. You two share (almost) the same outlook on life and have the same sense of humor. No wonder, all it takes is a moment for your daddy to make you laugh!
6. The hardest thing to do would be let go of his hand.
He’s taught you everything, right from riding a bicycle to driving a car, to teaching you what selfless love truly means. A friend who has always been around, someone with whom you’ve shared all your moments some good and a lot of the bad ones, someone who has supported you and protected you, how do you say goodbye to that person? The truth is you never do, you’ll always be a part of him, and he’ll always be a part of you, no matter what; there’s simply no goodbye!
7. The moment when he gives you away.
When you finally find someone who comes remotely close to being as great as your daddy and the time comes that he has to give you away, know that he’s giving away the most precious piece of his heart. It’s partly killing him to give you to another man; at the same time, he’s happy to see his little baby girl all grown up. But silly daddy, don’t you know, we’ll always remain your little baby girl!
8. He has a nickname for you that only he is allowed to call you.
Yes, my dad has got one for me too and nobody else is allowed to call me that! He’s been calling me that ever since I was five and never fails to fondly call me by that name. OK, I’ll admit, the nickname is a little embarrassing, but I kinda like it when he calls me that!
9. He’s your pillar of strength
Bad days, worst days, he’ll always be there for you. His soothing words of encouragement with a touch of humor has always made you feel all better, almost instantly. No matter what you choose for yourself and even if he disagrees, he’s trusted your instinct and stood behind you. And if ever there came a time where you failed, he has picked you up and made you trust in yourself again.
10. Your dad can never say no!
If there’s anything you wanted, he made sure you got it! You’re daddy’s little princess and you know it. He can never ever see you sad. You know he can never resist those cute big eyes and that sad little pout of yours, and you’ve used it a few times too many to your advantage than you’d like to admit.
11. You’ve always wanted to be like him.
Your daddy is superman! There’s definitely nothing that he can’t do or he always knows what to do. Accomplished and humble as ever, he inspires you. You dream that someday you’ll be as great as he is.
12. He’s told the same old stories a few million times.
Yes, you’ve heard the same old stories throughout your childhood and loved it very much. Even as an adult, these stories have never lost their charm! Neither you nor your daddy seem to outgrow these story-telling session, it manages to take you back to your childhood every single time! You hope that someday, it will be you and your kids who will listen to these stories that your dad manages to tell pretty well.
If you could totally relate to most of the points mentioned above, then my friend it is a sign that you’re adored and cherished by your father (who isn’t), a true blue daddy’s girl!
