Daddy and his baby

Posted by DeeDee at 10:32 AM
It is said that a girl is closer to her father than to her mother. 
For a daughter, a mother is an epitome of discipline, whereas, a father is like her partner in crime! 
There is special bond that a girl shares with her father; after all, he is the first man in her life. And, she is always a little princess to him. 
From infant to toddler to pre-teen to teen, a father sees the apple of his eye grow up from a little baby to a pretty woman.
From a little girl in pony tails to an elegant lady in a saree
But what happens when the time to search for her groom arrives. Dads start having the feeling of losing their gorgeous little princess overnight to some stranger who may or may not keep his angel happy. 
The mere thought of giving away his daughter to a person who he barely knows or has probably just met, starts giving him restless nights.  
From the start of seeing the groom, to the marriage preparations to the main ceremony. I am sure father's might be going through different emotions.
The excitement in his daughters eyes while shopping, the smile when she is talking to her fiance, the sad face when she doesn't get the exact shade of what she wants.
It makes him very happy as well as sad, to think that the time for her to leave him is coming nearer.
  
On the day of her marriage, all the memories from her childhood to now, even those forgotten memories flash through his life, like a photo album. 
During the Kanyadaan, father goes through a wave of emotion in this biggest moment of his and his daughter's life. That moment when its time for him to finally accept that there is going to be another man who will love her and protect her.
Silently, he wishes that this man loves, cares and protects his daughter more than daddy can does. 
When his daughter steps out of  her parents house as "Miss" to become a "Mrs" she leaves a gazillion memories in that house.
With tears in her eyes, when she turns back, she sees a man standing in the corner with sad red eyes, trying hard not to cry.
When she comes and hugs him, he doesn't see the bride, the grown up woman but he sees the little girl who used to hug him. He sees his little baby.
And a single tear rolls out from his eyes.
He is the father of the bride

I could so relate to this post. Took me back to the day when I got married. Yes, we may get married, have a 'grown up' life, but when we go back home, we always turn back into Dad's little girl :)

I loved both the quotes and the post even more. Exceptionally, my partner in crime is my mom and disciplinarian is my dad. But I can't deny that my dad went through the same thing. When I looked up after my husband tied the knot, there were more tears in his eyes than mine and that said it all. All the while, his red eyed were vainly trying to hide what he couldn't.

Of course, a daughter is always a daughter.
