Thank You Husband - for being their DAD!

The Headlines:

Every time I see my kids do something cute.

My insides fill with warmth.

Kinda like getting a gift everyday.

I wish I could have a video camera in my eyes.  You know what I mean?  So I could remember all the cute, funny, good things about my 2 children.  But instead I remember nothing.  Does that happen to you?  I think to myself, I'm going to remember that one for sure... 1 day later, it's gone.  I tried to write everything down once.  I put a notepad in my car when my daughter was like 18 months.  I wrote some things on it but then life got in the way and the writing stopped.

Now, with the iPhone at our fingertips, of course I could capture the moments easier, right?  Ahhhhh wrong.  See, once they say or do it... it's forever lost.  But what I am always left with is the knowledge that without their Dad - those moments wouldn't be there at all.  Seriously, every time I see adorable - I think of him.  I didn't make them on my own.  They came from both of us.  So I say a quick little thank you to BP (their Dad - my husband), silently, from time to time.

Father's Day is one day, however, that I say it out loud.

And if you read this blog at all (the 10 of you)... you know I'm not afraid to do that.  Father's Day has long been important to me because of my own Dad.  But now, within the last decade, the other Father in my life takes center stage from time to time.

This Father's Day, I will again attempt to make my husband feel special to us.  The way he makes us feel special everyday by just being there, providing, loving and supporting.

The other day my 4 year old son did something that really made me smile and, this time, I actually caught it on video:

Anyways, unbeknownst to my son - it's supposed to go:

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,
Catch a tiger by the toe.
If he hollers, let him go,
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe.

But he'll learn the real words soon enough...

Until then, ironically, I'll continue to thank his Dad for giving ME the real gift this Father's Day and everyday in between.

You too, huh?  Happy Father's Day.


  1. Aw, this is so sweet. My son looks SO much like my husband, so I can't help but think of him whenever I look at him.

  2. Awww that's so sweet! You are a lucky mom and wife! Hope you are having a great summer and your hubby had a great Father's Day!

    1. ditto back to you. it's all an adventure isn't it?
