She's young but has my heart

I went to a black tie wedding Saturday with the most fabulous date. I have asked her numerous times to accompany me to different events this past year but to my dismay has always turned me down. I guess she felt our age difference was just too much…you know, all that annoying relating business. But after some prodding she agreed. She was beautiful and charming and albeit way too young, neither of us seemed to care. We danced and laughed and dished on the others while I had champagne and she sipped on her coke as she doesn’t drink alcohol which I find quite admirable. We both agreed that “Celebration” and “We are family” should be banned from weddings forever.
Later that night we went back to my house, had a snack stayed up another hour or so chatting about the night we had together. What I was most pleased about was that she didn’t text at all…at least I didn’t see any…didn’t roll her eyes at me one time…well maybe a couple of times. Really, not bad for a fifteen year old don’t you think?
She finally went up to her room and I thought…my teenage daughter is very very cool and is turning out just fine. I know I will probably return to Dad, the man who doesn’t know much about anything and the eye roll thing will happen every now and then but…I think that’s the way it’s supposed to be. I am proud of her and I think she is of me. I like where we are going.

I love this. Wish my XH took an interest in our daughters like that.

Great dad moment I bet she won't forget soon. They grow up so fast, enjoy her company as much as you can.

Great story Dad. I'm glad you had a great time with your DD. No eye-rolling and no texting - really a big deal! And I did not fall for it - I think I'm getting used to your humor. (No, I haven't been stalking you, just reading on SI a lot lately.)

LOL! Had me going for quite a while. When you said 15, I almost lost it. LOL!

Very, very sweet.

Awesome! At first I thought it was going to say fifteen year age difference- then I was shocked - then a big grin popped on my face. You got me!

So glad you had a nice time with your teen!

This post made me cry like a baby. I really don't think there is anything a man does that's more important than be a good father to his daughter. He is forever the standard by which all future men will be measured.

She sounds lovely and you have so many more wonderful times ahead of you with her. Thanks for sharing this one with us.

love the sipped coke because she doesn't drink.

I almost started responding with some epic 2x4s before reading it all.

I am slightly loving you right now. LOVE THIS!!!

Nice one!

You know what you remember when you're on your 20s & 30s and still trying to find the right one ...You remember the older guy who made you feel like you were most precious treasure in the world. The older guy who can pick up any women in the room but he picked you so you hold on to the memories and keep looking. Thanks for being that older guy. And yes, I still roll my eyes when my dad calls & questions me like I'm still 15 but that's part of my daughterly charm
