Good for your husband for getting his daughter back in his life!! Do you have any kids?
I had 3 SDs and I can relate to the whole not know how to deal with them thing. But, they had a mother that they wanted back in their dad's life and wanted nothing to do with me. Thank God you don't have to deal with that. But you are dealting with a little girl who never had her father growing up. He will probably try to make up for lost time by being overly attentive and want to give her everything.
But, let her be with her dad and you guys should all go out and do some stuff together as a family. Such as Riding bikes, play board games. Ask her if she needs help with her homework. My SD's liked to help me cook in the kitchen. Chopping away and learning how to cook different meals. Have her do things to make her and you feel like a family. Because. you are.
Maybe have a girl day with her and get mani/s and pedi/s together. Maybe take her shopping at the mall. Make her feel that your home is her home. Let her decorate her room.
She is back in his life, so she is in your life. I am sure she feels awkward as well. So try and make her feel comfortable. Have fun.
