My children are blessed to have a father who loves to spend time with them.
He is the kind of dad who doesn't need prompting. He looks for ways to do things with them, ideas to get them involved in whatever he's doing and to get involved in whatever they're doing (as long as it does not involve a doll house).
Grace and Joe have gone to a play. They have gone to lunch, to Walmart. They have gardened and played in the tree house and made ice cream together. They cook together; they play together.
He's a very involved dad.
If you've been hoping to help your husband develop a better daddy-daughter routine, you should look at a new ebook from my friend, Ashley Pichea.
51 Frugal Father-Daughter Dates is a resource that your husband (or you) can rely on for years. The activity suggestions are broken into sections based on cost – free, under $5, under $10, under $20, and under $50, and they range from the very simple (write a story together) to the planned-in-advance (a camping trip) to the expensive (a concert they'll both enjoy).
The best thing about 51 Frugal Father-Daughter Dates is that the dates would work for mom, dad, Grandma, or anyone who wants to spend more time with your kids. The suggestions in the book are the foundation upon which a wonderful tradition can be built.
Because Joe is father of the year, he and Grace had already done many of the things listed in the book. If your husband and daughter already have an established routine and do a lot of things together, they may find only a few things they hadn't thought of. Even so, for $2.99, you'll get your money's worth.
Ashley gave me a copy of 51 Frugal Father-Daughter Dates to review. All opinions are my own.
