This Father Has A Message For All New Dads Raising Daughters

"I'm not going to lie. I was hoping for a boy."

Raising your first kid can be scary stuff, so it's not a bad idea to take some advice from people who have already been there. 

Plum Organics, an organic baby food company, has launched its Parenting Unfiltered campaign, which features a series of videos from real dads sharing advice to help celebrate Father's Day. 

In one of the videos, one dad gives some advice to other dads out there who may be nervous about raising a daughter. 

"I'm not going to lie. I was hoping for a boy. I know it sounds so shitty. It's just that I thought that maybe I could ease into the whole parenting thing by starting out with a boy. You know, same equipment and all that. But we had a girl," he said. "It turns out, having a daughter is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Hands down." 

He goes on to explain that he knows that it can seem terrifying, but that it'll all be worth it. And, all that stuff you were hoping to do with a son? You can do it with your daughter. "There's nothing you can't do with daughters," he said. "My girls and I, we do science experiments and we build cities out of bricks and we go to games and we play a little air guitar and we bake cookies — because cookies are awesome and so are daughters."
