he really can’t be anything but proud of her because, while she’s definitely inherited some of his intelligence, she’s already started taking after her aunt pepper.
one day she just walks into tony’s office while he’s actually doing some of the more boring things related to being the owner of a company, saying something like, ‘daddy, daddy, give me your autograph!’ and tony just smiles at his weird little girl but takes the paper without looking and she dimples up at him as he hands it back with a look in her eyes that he really should recognize by now
an hour later she asks him to come to her room to see something really cool and when he gets there it’s a… tea party. like, a really intense tea party with everything a little girl could possibly want sitting at and around the table. and when she tells him he needs to go get changed for the tea party, he tries to refuse saying he has work that he needs to get done
and that’s when she shows him the paper. the typed up contract with his signature at the bottom saying that tony stark will attend one tea party per week at the discretion of ms. stark, wearing appropriate attire (also at young ms. stark’s discretion). it’s a really intricate document, even detailing ‘penalties’ if mr. stark is unable to attend, and tony wonders for a second how his little girl pulled this off before he spots pepper’s signature as a witness.
he’s so impressed he can’t even get a little mad at her and instead does as she wishes and changes into his ‘appropriate attire’.
pepper swings by later to see how it’s going and to take a picture.
