Adorable Tweet About Dad Who Takes His Daughter Out For Monthly 'Date' Goes Viral
A mum has shared the heartwarming way her husband bonds with their six-year-old daughter - by taking her out on a date once a month.
Caitlin Fladager, 25, from Vancouver, posted the adorable photo of her other half Noah Slomski, 24, handing their daughter Ariana a bunch of flowers.
In another snap, the youngster was seen with an eyeshadow palette adding a touch of make-up to her face.
The mum-of-two, who also shares son Jack, four, with Noah, explained that he had struggled to find a way to bond with his daughter the same way he did with his son, and so began taking her out for dessert.
"Tonight my six year old has a date. The same one she has monthly. With her daddy.
"Once a month, for the past couple of years, my husband will take our daughter on a date. He brings her home flowers, she borrows my makeup, and she picks out a dress. He treats her like a special little princess."
Caitlin continued: "It has become a tradition now, for her. Something to look forward to. She loves the flowers, and getting ready, but her favourite thing about it, is sitting down with her daddy, one one one. Enjoying a slice of cake.
"My six year old is going on a date tonight, and I can't wait to hear all about it when she gets back."
Caitlin's post on Twitter and Instagram has racked up hundreds of thousands of likes as people rushed to praise Noah for spending quality time with his daughter.
"That is such a special time for her. Memories she will have forever," wrote one underneath the pictures.

"Great job dad!!!! Let her know how important she is!!!" gushed another.
"Great dad, creating memories that will last a lifetime and showing her how a man is supposed to treat a lady," added a third.
Another wrote: "This is so beautiful. He's teaching her how she should be treated."
While some had issues with Ariana being allowed to wear make-up, mum Caitlin said she didn't care about what any critics had to say.
She told Tyla: "It's important one one one time with her dad! She loves it and loves spending time with him. This is just an extra fun way!
"And honestly, I don't read the comments ever. So I have no idea what they are saying. To each their own family!"
Caitlin, who started dating Noah when they were 16 and 15, had their daughter at 19, and then married when she was 20, has built up a huge following sharing an unfiltered insight into her life as a young stay-at-home mum.
While she readily admits that she is fortunate enough to be able to look after her two young children daily, she has written about how she finds it very lonely.
"Nobody tells you how hard it is asking for help when you need it. Nobody tells you it's not easy. It's mentally draining," she posted alongside an image of herself.
"Nobody tells you that no matter how many hours are in a day, you still won't feel like you have done enough.
"Nobody tells you how draining being stuck in the same routine every day, is. The same pile of dishes, the same pile of laundry, the same toys all over the floor.
"We all struggle to find "me" time. We all struggle asking for help. We all struggle with feeling isolated. Being a stay at home mom is so lonely."
Caitlin has since been open about her mental health struggle and has vowed to post honestly about her family life to help others.
