    Yeah this is my life. My girls are 6,4 and 18 months. I grew up with 4 sisters so I had a decent idea of what to expect.

    I can rock out to "Let it go" and "to build a snowman" though.

    They love the Clones though which is awesome. They would walk around the house during both tourney runs and tell me "survive and advance" and that "Kane is able" while my wife just rolled her eyes.

    They think I rock so life is awesome now. I'll get back to you in 10 years.

    Re: For the Dads of little girls.

    I have 2 daughters (almost 9 and 6) and 1 boy (almost 5).

    Since, we open enroll our children to the district my wife teaches in, I don't get to take my kids to school much. But, a couple months ago, I got the chance to take my daughters. My older daughter had her backpack, snow gear, snack, and other garbage spread out all over the back seat. Once, I got to the school she had it mostly backed away, but kept dropping stuff as she walked away. A boy from her class was getting dropped off and kept helping her pick stuff up. My first thought was what a nice little guy, very helpful, you don't see that from most of her classmates...yet, at the same time I got the urge to jump out of the car and kick him.

    Re: For the Dads of little girls.

    So the gist I get is, do not get Frozen for my girls.

    If you don't mind watching it four times a day, go for it. Otherwise, maybe just rent it.

    Mine are now 22, 20 and 17. I remember letting them put those little plastic bows in my hair -- like 3 dozen.

    You should have just pinned him up against the wall a couple feet off the ground, looked him straight in the eyes and let him know, in no uncertain terms, that you're onto him.

    Irrational protectiveness....embrace it. I feel sorry for the first boy that walks by my daughter, turns to check her out and accidentally walks into my fist.

    You guys with young daughters -- NEVER pass up a chance to let them sit in your lap. Because one day they won't.

    Ugh, when my girls get to the point of being boy crazy, not sure how I am going to survive. I have a feeling they will hate me for about 4-5 years.

    This applies to many kinds of interactions with both boys and girls.

    I find joy in giving my son a hug and telling him I love him when I say bye to him at school. I know it will only be a few years before he wont want me to do that.

    Don't be scared. They are magical, and there's something just so special about the love a girl has for her daddy. Yes, there is just more drama pretty much from day 1, but some of it's the best drama ever. During that pretend wedding Janny described on page 1, our 3yo daughter used the phrases "goodness gracious," "actually," and "believe me" within a 5 minute period. Very theatrical, but precious.
    Our youngest son has four daughters, 10, 8, 5 & 2. You may remember a song out by Rodney Atkins in 2008 called Cleaning This Gun (Come On In Boy). The song is about a father meeting his daughter's date for the first time - chatting with him while cleaning his gun. Part of the chorus goes: "Now y'all run along and have some fun. I'll see you when you get back...Bet I'll be up all night, still cleaning this gun."

    When his third daughter was born, we teased him about displaying his gun collection. Our son (a captain in the Marines) responded "guns, hell...I'm gonna put a tank in the front yard!"

    And somehow, I believe him! ;)

    Re: For the Dads of little girls.

    I think the line goes 'Daughters are your punishment for being born a man.' I don't know what I'm going to do if I have daughters.

    One of the funnier things I've seen my own dad do is let the girls on my older sisters select softball team paint his fingernails for all their tournaments.

    I have wondered about why some people continue saying months after a child turns one. After having baby clothes, I think it's due to sizing. Baby clothes go up to 24 months and then go into T sizes.
