Dad Helps Daughter Pick Outfit For Her First Date, But His Text To Mom Is Melting Hearts Everywhere.

There’s nothing like the bond between a father and his daughter. Having a child completely alters the course of a father’s life and the girl’s future relationships all but depend on how dad responds to the responsibility.

A noteworthy dad from British Columbia is making headlines after taking his daughter out on monthly dates. His wife, Caitlin Fladager praised her husband for making their little girl feel like the princess she was… and setting an incredible example that will be with the little one the rest of her life. Thousands have joined in the aww’s and applause… and it’s easy to see why.


My husband decided once a month he will take our little girl out on a “date” where she gets all dressed up and gets taken out for cake and ice cream. Tonight was their first night doing it. 


He helped her pick out a dress for her to wear, got a little purse ready for her, held the door open for her, and made her feel like a princess.


She loved it was so happy when she got home. She will always know how she deserves to be treated because her dad sets such a high example. 


Caitlin wasn’t the only one that recognized the importance of her husband’s actions. Facebook user Morgan Weeks wrote this emotional response, “I don’t know you guys but this warmed my heart and made me cry. My father passed when I was 11 and when he and my mom divorced when I was 6, every week until he died, on Wednesday he’d take me to eat, a daddy daughter date, and this just made me so happy. Speaking from someone who was in your daughter’s shoes,she will always cherish those dates and remember her father as an amazing man. Much luck & happiness to y’all for years to come.”

That about sums it up. The Fladager’s daughter will never forget the example her dad set for her. What a wonderful and simple way to invest in the lives and futures of our children.
