fathers and daughters! uh!

what is it with dads and their daughters?
they strut around like vain peacocks, boasting to all and sundry about their daughter, as if the whole world has nothing better to do than oooh and aah over dad's little pride.
about 9 out of 10 recent births (moi included) i know of, have been baby girls, and 9 out of 9 dads are a little off their rocker!
seriously guys, get over it! the world is full of pretty little girls, their pompous dads and their overwrought mums.
and this is not only aimed at the dad who thinks his 12-week old will start talking 'SOON' because she gurgles loudly!

psst: well, as you can see someone is feeling a little left out of the drama enacted by certain daughters and their dad.

LOL! Gotta send this to the husband. I downloaded recent videos from the camera and almost all 20 of them have the husband going clap, clap, clap and the little one clapping!!!! *rolls eyes*

I think it has more than a little to do with the fact that the presence of the little one is a constant reminder of the proof of the father's manhood, without the resultant anxiety that the new male in the pride will take over from him! And of course also because little girls are made of sugar and spice and everything's nice!! - Proud father of Daughter

Mahas: And then the girls grow up, get figure conscious and dump the sugar. it's all spice after that...
