Dude looks like a lady. Well, sort of.

For the record, this is what a good dad looks like.


But, Thomas goes WAY beyond a good dad. And here, my friends, is why.

When his daughters, who are obsessed with make-up and princesses, asked him pretty, pretty please with sugar and sprinkles on top if they could put mommy's Mary Kay make-up on him this weekend he reluctantly said...yes.

Well, that's not entirely accurate. First he said no way. Then, no thank you. And, later, well, maybe. But finally, he went into the bathroom and shaved all but his little lip goatee thingy and said, have at it. And the girls were giddy beyond belief.

So, we broke out the make-up samples and I let the girls turn their daddy into a fairytale princess. And, of course, made sure I captured the journey of transformation on film.



And this is where it gets good. 'Cause if the first the picture is what a good dad looks like, then these pictures are of a super great amazing dad.

Not only did he let the girls put make-up on him, he sweetly agreed to let Ivy put the wigs on him when she came out yelling, "Daddy needs hair! Daddy needs hair!" And, not only that, but he let me take pictures of it. And, blog it.

So, without further ado, I present to you he who was crowned "Princess Daddy" by my girls. The best daddy in the whole wide world. (And a man who, for the record, will never be able to run for political office. At least, not outside of San Francisco.)

Working it! Love the 'fro and the flower crown!

Rocking the old school, Cyndi Lauper style.


My THREE girls!

My dad would never in a million years, I don't think my husband would either. Your girls are lucky to have a Daddy that will create memories and blackmail opportunities just to see smiles on their faces.

He's a very beautiful princess!!

Oh that's AWESOME! I still have fond memories of one snowy day that my uncle (Hell's Angel biker with a loooong ponytail) let my cousin & I put his hair in pigtails, put on lipstick & he played Barbies with us. Your girls will remember this forever. And if they don't, you've got PICS to prove it! :)
