Throughout the course of my early-motherhood-years with my 4 sons, I always loved watching my husband with them. My husband grew up with 2 sisters, so I always felt like him having sons – 4 of them! – was a true dream come true. He welcomed fatherhood like a pro. For him, it was seamless and just the most exciting and happy thing in the world. You know how you’ll hear women say, “She was born to be a mom.” Well, he was born to be a father.
He’s that dad that coaches their baseball teams, trades football cards with them, plays outside for hours and hours and hours with them and does just about everything dad-and-son thing you can imagine! My husband is also the most gentle, kind, loving, sweet and caring man there is, I see this and know this first-hand.
I always felt deep-down inside that my husband would have been an amazing father to a little girl. Boys are so rough and tough… and they’re also non-stop, I often wondered throughout the years what he would have been like with a daughter. It’s funny, having a little girl was never something we thought would happen for us. We were a boy family. Trucks. Cars. Footballs. Baseballs. Dinosaurs. That’s all we knew.
And then, well… life had another plan for us.
Victoria was born in July of 2013.
All of a sudden this boy family became boys and a little lady family.
MUSH. He is absolutely MUSH in her hands and it’s the most beautiful thing in the world to me.
It’s seeing my husband do things with Victoria that truly makes my heart skip a beat, especially when it comes to bath and (as we call it) hair time. Victoria takes a bath (or as we say, “tubby!”) every single night. She literally asks for it now. It’s become a family affair. Now that she’s talking up a storm, it’s even more fun to be in there and watch her interact with everything. She loves to splash and sing and laugh and play. Watching my husband wash her hair is adorable because he’s this 6’3″, 250 lb man… and she’s this tiny little bundle… he just gets right down and sings along with her while he’s washing her little hair. It’s the cutest thing ever! In the past, he just washed little heads of hair… now he’s washing longer, thicker hair with Victoria. I always tell him, “Make sure you really get a good scrub of her hair!” We use a few different JOHNSON’S products for Victoria (always have, even with the boys, too!). She likes the purple JOHNSON’S Calming Lavender Shampoo, or as she says to me, “pur-pee one, mama!” And, if we have extra time, I’ll add some of the JOHNSON’S Bubble Time Bath! For her hair time, I especially love using nourishing hair formulas like JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER to unlock stubborn knots and tangles so that hair is protected, even when wet.
After bathtime, it’s always the same hair routine. Victoria has a ton of tangles in her hair, ALWAYS. It’s funny, I was the same was as a toddler. If she feels a tangle she actually says, “ouchie!” She has such a thick head of hair with a little curl at the bottom, so you never get a brush through on the first try. To make it easier on her hair (and on me!), we use JOHNSON’S NO MORE TANGLES Detangling Spray. It goes to work instantly on her tangles. The best part is that it can be used in dry or wet hair for easy trouble-free combing. It makes her hair manageable and untangled in seconds! I also LOVE to use the JOHNSON’S No MORE TANGLES Leave-In Conditioner on her, too. Works just as amazing!! Baby hair is more prone to breakage, and for this reason, JOHNSON’S® NO MORE TANGLES® regimen is formulated with hair conditioners that gently moisturize as they cleanse, to help hair grow.
I put Daddy on hair time duty with his “Sissy” (his nickname for her) the other night. He doesn’t usually do hair time, it’s usually my thing with her, but he gave it a try!
He did GREAT!!
I was able to grab a little video of the 2 of them! 🙂
Use all 3 products in the NO MORE TANGLES® product line together to unlock 75% of knots and tangles!
1. Cleanse hair with a 2-in-1, Shampoo and Conditioner
2. Nourish with a leave-in conditioner
3. Style using a wide-tooth comb
Happy Hair Styling! It’s DADDY HAIR TIME!!
