The other day I was thinking about fathers. My dad was awesome. There were many years were we lived together, just the two of us. My dad did my laundry, cooked my dinner, sang with me in the car, took me swimming, took me to ballet, came to school to eat lunch with me, talked with me. He did all the things that I saw other kids moms doing. That was my dad.
I started thinking about Josh as a dad. I'm a lucky girl to have picked someone like him to the father of my children. He takes care of the girls during the day, gets them dressed, fixes them breakfast and lunch, plays with them. He has no issues doing anything they need, bathes, meals, cuddles, playing. He does it all.
Then I look at some of my friends (and former friends) and who they have children with. I have more than a few friends who have husbands/boyfriends who have never fed their children. Never changed a diaper. Never watch their own children all on their own! Some fathers that won't even attend a kindergarten graduation because it's "stupid" or a dance recital. After Annika's dance recital Josh told me that not only did he love getting to see Annika dance but he actually enjoyed the other performances too!
So Happy Father's Day to all the dads that are truly dads to their children. You all should be celebrated.
