Happy Father's Day to our Daddy!
The post comes a bit late, so forgive me, J.
Daddy in our house is a rockstar. His biggest fans simply adore him.
The simple things he does with the kids are their favorite things: rough-housing, playing catch, playing ball, chasing, reading...these are the things our kids love to do with him. They love him with every ounce of their being. I do too.
I love that he plays with them. He never talks about how he has to "take care of his kids." That's never been his take on things. "I get to be with my kids today," is more how he looks at it. Going on bike rides, watching parades, building sandcastles and swimming in the lake are all a part of being a daddy for him.
I look at pictures of him with the kids when they were first born. This is my favorite one.
I know it sounds funny to some, but I feel like I already knew what a good dad he was going to be. I knew he was already doing everything he could to be the best daddy in their first minutes of life.
It's a great thing knowing your kids are loved and cared for with hands of someone you love and trust. There is and never has been a moment when I have thought otherwise. I consider myself one of the lucky ones. I know there are others out there, but for me, right now, I feel like the luckiest. I love you, J. Happy Daddy's Day! Happy Father's Day! from K on Vimeo.
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
