From this experience, it has helped spur on other dates with me and has really strengthened our ‘fun’ dad-daughter relationship.
The Father Daughter Dance has helped me become so much closer to my dad throughout the years. We have gone since the very first dance and every time we go I feel very special, beautiful, and loved. On that night I am always so grateful to my father for being the wonderful man he is. My father and I have always been close and part of the reason I feel that closeness is because of the time we spend bonding at places like the Father Daughter Dance.
Anna and I started going to the Father-Daughter Dance when she was 3 years-old – and now she’s almost 14! Growing up, anytime we’ve driven by the place where the dance was held, she would always say “that’s where I go dance with daddy!” We put it on the calendar every year, and it makes her feel special knowing that dates with her are important to her dad. Although I’m not much of a dancer, she loves dancing with me, taking funny pictures at the Photo Booth, making crafts, and eating ice cream! It is a great model of how a future date with her should be – I dress up, hold the door for her, open her car door and try to treat her with respect as a ‘young lady.’ And from this experience, it has helped spur on other dates with me and has really strengthened our ‘fun’ dad-daughter relationship.
