Sometimes the perfect gift is the one you aren’t expecting – I’m proud to be a D.A.D.D.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Respect Realty LLC 200311024


Since the day my daughters were born I’ve always said to them “You can’t date until I’m dead” and so far, so good. But, my mother-in-law found a shirt that she thought was perfect for this Christmas and I have to say it may replace my Activerain shirt when I’m out and about with them.

Dads again daughters dating

So, I’m proud to announce I’m not a D.A.D.D. (Dads Against Daughters Dating) Even though my oldest daughter basically laughed at me when she saw it and said “Good Luck” I told her that when she tries to start dating in a few years “Good luck!” with a wink.

I see you have the same "problem" as me. My girls are 11, 10 and 8. I'm screwed.

Love the shirt. I saw those for sale and nearly bought one for my son, but figured I'd wait just a bit, since my Grand-daughter just turned 7.

Good luck with that Todd, ;)  I have 2 daughters and the best you can hope for is that they develope good taste and choose well.

Todd, did she dig that shirt out of your Father-in-laws, drawer? That could also tell a tale. BTW nice hat!

Todd ~ *Wink* looks like you still have a few years to go on the dating scene but we are absolutely sure with your concern as a DAD the news will have spread to the boys by then ~~ *laughs*

Even if you send the girls to a convent, Todd, they will find a way to date! Having daughters is probably payback for all the worry you caused someone else's dad.
