To my dear daughter...from daddy

To my beautiful daughter, 

How I wish to give my daughters (and sons) the best possible future. It was so easy when you were little. You were so free, full of joy and I was your hero. These were the best days of my life. The love you gave me, the way you looked at me. I felt like a superhero. I felt invincible in your baby girl eyes, flooding me with love.

You gave me purpose. You gave me meaning. You became my world. Your love transformed me in ways I couldn't have imagined. Because of you, I became a better man.

Having a baby girl makes a man want to change the world for her. To create fairness and equality where there isn't any. To create opportunities for her and her future. Love creates miracles and changes everything.

I am scared of losing you, my baby girl. You are growing up and changing. I don't know how to be a part of that. I don't know how I fit into your changing world and your changing needs. You don't need me anymore.

Growing up, I didn't know much about my mum's - or sister's - periods. They didn't talk to me about women's issues. There was always secrecy and hush around this. No one talked about it. So I don't always know the right things to say or do or even whether to bring it up or not. 

I want you to feel safe with me. I want you to know that I will always be home for you. I know I might not always understand, and sometimes I might look uncomfortable. I am not sure if I can ask questions and find out more. I know you prefer to talk about this with your mother, but I am still here for you. 

My darling daughter, I want to celebrate your strength, wisdom, individuality and respect you for exactly who you are becoming. I don't want to lose you in secrecy and hushed tones the way I lost connection with my sisters. 

I want to reach out, do something, be there and understand. I want my little girl to understand that no matter what, even as you grow up, I will always be there for you. 

I want to be there for you as you transition into womanhood. I want to normalise this, celebrate this and embrace this. I want to keep our special bond. Even though I am not always sure how to do that or what to do or what to say. Always know, I love you. 

In becoming a woman, you will never stop being my baby girl.

Perhaps this menarche kit is the perfect combination of saying it all and saying nothing at all.


Love, Dad.
