"She's a princess and deserves to be treated like one."

An early contender for Dad of the Year.

In what could be the sweetest thing ever, a dad has come up with a special idea to make his little girl feel special.

"My husband decided once a month he will take our little girl out on a "date" where she gets all dressed up and gets taken out for cake and ice cream," Caitlin Fladager shared on Facebook.

"Tonight was there first night doing it," she wrote alongside photos of the adorable father-daughter moments.

"He helped her pick out a dress for her to wear, got a little purse ready for her, held the door open for her, and made her feel like a princess. She loved it was so happy when she got home.

"She will always know how she deserves to be treated because her dad sets such a high example."

The sweet Facebook post has gone viral, garnering more than 86 000 reactions and over 39 800 shares.
