When I met my husband I knew immediately that he was going to be a great father! He has always had a strong sense of family that I truly admired. I didn’t grow up with my father around a lot so my experiences with daddy daughter moments are far and few between.
Growing up, I never really experienced a father role in the household and did not know what to expect. The bond that my husband shares with our daughters has shown me what it truly means to have a husband who unconditionally loves his children and enjoys over all else spending quality time with his family. It is a trait I only could have wished for but feel overwhelmingly blessed to have found!
So when I was invited to take the girls to the premier of American Girl: Melody 1963 last week, and I knew I would be out of town for work, he stepped in and thought it would be a great daddy daughter date! The girls were so excited! Well, my oldest was, the youngest went along for the ride…lol!
The premier took place at The Grove in Los Angeles and the girls gawked at the red carpet before heading to their seats and munching on unlimited popcorn, a dream come true for them! While my youngest is too young to truly understand the premise of the film, my oldest was delighted to see a young African American girl take center stage as she told a story about living in 1963 Detroit facing the realities of being black in America. My daughter loved that the story took place in Detroit, my hometown, and was mesmerized by the star Marsai Martin, who eloquently brought Melody to life.
Following the film they headed over to a star studded event at American Girl filled with food and play, which I heard they did not want to leave. My oldest even asked Marsai Martin for a picture but my husband said our daughter kept asking, how is that girl here and I just saw her in the movie?
My daughters couldn’t wait to tell me how much fun they had on their daddy daughter date! American Girl made it pretty easy for my hubby with all the fun so it was a win win for him! Definitely check out this family friendly film which debuts today on Amazon Prime.
