When we found out that we were expecting a little girl, we were both blown away. The Young family have very few girls in their family tree and we were, well, tickled pink to find out that we would be adding girl number 5 to the Young family. Then we started to worry, I mean what did any of us know about raising girls? Yes I am a girl and my niece is a girl but on the Young side of the family those who would be most involved with our kids only had boy experience.
That said I was so grateful that God had answered the desires of my heart and to see Cliff so happy about having a daughter to dote on really made my heart sing.
We have both had to learn things about being parents to a daughter but what I love most is how my man has stretched his daddy legs to being the best girl dad ever. He lets Gemma paint his nails, do his make up, dresses her in her girliest outfits when I’m not around and loves to play girly games with her.
I love seeing them interact together in “traditionally’ girly ways. I think that’s why Barbie has definitely hit the mark with me (and I’m sure many other girl parents) with their newest #DadsWhoPlayBarbie campaign. I love it! I mean who wouldn’t have their hearts melted watching this ad?
I think part of the reason I love this campaign so much is, I can see my own family echoed in the scenes playing out in front of me.
I know I am not the only woman out there who gets mushy heart eyes when they see their man playing Barbie with their daughter, and the folks at Mattel want to see your images (like mine above).
They are giving away a Barbie hamper valued at R1552.00 to one lucky #DadsWhoPlayBarbie entrant via my blog.
