Erin Napier loves who her husband is as a father.

The HGTV star, 38, shared photos on Instagram of her husband, Ben Napier, 40, spending some time playing with their girls, daughters  Mae, 2½, and Helen, 6.

The girl dad is immersed in pretend play, a customer in his daughters' beauty shop. In one shot, Mae adjusts her dad's pink headband and in the next, she holds a compact up to his face so that he can see his reflection in the mirror while he holds Helen, who is strewn across his lap.

"Beauty shop! @scotsman.co," Erin captioned the post.

Erin shared another photo last month, showing a scene from the family's holiday season. The cozy scene showed a fire in the fireplace and a princess castle toy just in front of where she sat on the couch.

"That post Christmas in between feeling so good and a little disorganized and like we can breathe and do… nothing. 😍," the mom of two wrote.

Other photos showed scenes of piles of new things the kids were enjoying, some holiday decor and a dessert, and the sisters sitting just in front of the Christmas tree, each playing with her own toy just out of frame.

Though she occasionally shares moments with her daughters on social media, the HGTV star opened up about her reasoning behind keeping her kids away from these platforms.

In August, Erin penned an essay for TODAY.com discussing her and her husband’s “informal agreement” to keep their daughters off of social media and away from smartphones: "We don’t want our kids to be disconnected. We always have said, 'We'll get landlines so they can call each other, and then when they're old enough to drive, we'll get them flip phones, and they can call and text each other.’”

The experience inspired them to launch Osprey, a nonprofit that assists families with finding a community that also prohibits cell phones and/or social media — to normalize the choice — all while allowing their kids to meet other kids.

"A lot of people are like, 'You're so naive,' for thinking we can keep our kids off of social media and away from cell phones. But it's not a forbidden fruit thing," Erin wrote.

"We don't intend to ever treat it that way for our girls. What we intend to teach them is that you can live the most incredible life, and you can do and see and be anything in the world, if you are not tethered to something fake."

She concluded, "This is us teaching our children: You deserve more. And you are capable of a whole lot more if you can skip social media and cell phones until you're older. Until you’re ready, you’ll have your growing group of Osprey friends who are having the same low-tech adolescence."
