Recently, our local Chickfila hosted a “Pretty Princess Daddy Daughter Date Night.” If you follow my blog and have read my bio, then you already know that my daughter is THE princess of our kingdom. I’m not ashamed of that. For example, time got away from us last night and so Man of the House headed “to town” to grab something quick to eat. She hugged him with the saddest voice and choked back a cry while her face was in a permanent and uncontrollable frown. He had a millisecond internal war with himself and was like, “put this baby some pants and shoes on.” She rode to town with her daddy and came back beaming with pride that she had gotten me a drink. Definitely not spoiled. Ha!
Needless to say, since she already thinks she is a princess every time she wears a dress of any kind, I knew they just had to go to this event. I’m so glad I signed them up! She still says she went to a “Princess Ball.” She dressed up in a Cinderella dress up out fit. Dress, purse, tiara, “high heels”, necklace, and gloves. She was ready!
I had built it up to her telling her that she was going to a “PRINCESSS PARTYYYY with her DADDYY!!” Ha! I never was able to do stuff like that as a little girl and I love making sure they participate in anything “Daddy-Daughter.” As a result, I am the perfect play mate as long as it is the two of us, but if Man of the House is on the property she “not wike mama.” Oh, okay, so I was just good enough while dad wasn’t home. Honestly though, I love it that they are so close. I WANT her to have an amazing relationship with her daddy. I know that we have a great Mom-Daughter relationship because she doesn’t cry for anyone else when she’s hurt (; and we spend time playing Barbies, painting toe nails, or doing arts and crafts. Things Daddy prefers not to do.
At the “Pretty Princess Daddy Daughter Date Night” they had to make reservations. (How cute?!) You didn’t order at the counter this time, a Chickfila employee took your order and brought your food to the table. Each daughter was given a flower and a princess goodie bag, which of course contained a miniature stuffed Chickfila Cow. They also had their picture taken by a photographer in front of a zebra print backdrop. Chickfila even printed one 5×7 for us free and we picked it up a few weeks later in the store. Oh, and they each received one free mini ice cream sundae for dessert! Our daughter thought it was the most AMAZING thing in the world. I mean, she had just turned three and she had the chance to go to a princess ball! She is like the coolest three year old ever! (;
When they got back home she was so excited to tell me alllllllll about it. I asked who to her to the ball and she said, “my prince.” Swoon.
I hope your local Chickfila offers events similar to this one, and I definitely suggest finding out if they do! I love positive things for parents and children especially in the world we live in today.
