Here’s to the girl dads.

Here’s to the guys who love hiking and fishing.

Who camp and build things with their hands.

Who have tattoos on their arms.

Here’s to the guy’s guys.

Who now hold little girls.

RELATED: To the Dads of All Daughters

Thanks for pausing the wrestling matches to conduct tea parties.

Thanks for babysitting baby dolls.

And letting tiny hands put polish on your big toes.

Here’s to the dads who watch princess movies.

And slow dance in the kitchen.

The dads who helped take off training wheels.

Who tighten seatbelt straps.

And fasten car seats in.

Who hold hands when crossing the street.

Who have spent so many years right now learning to hold on and will spend the rest of their lives learning to let go.

You are building hearts with your construction hands.

And I know a little girl who thinks the world of you.

So here’s to the girl dads.

Who give so much beauty to the word dad.
