Isaac's first word was Dada. He loves his dad so much! And with good reason - he has an amazing dad.
I often get sucked in to the teen pregnancy shows on MTV. 16 and pregnant, Teen Mom, etc. I always find myself yelling at the so called "dads" in those shows. They are selfish, mean, hurtful, and down right stupid. I have to remember that they are teenagers, and I was once that way. The other night I was watching a particularly frustrating one. When it was done, I went into the office and kissed my husband.
"Thank you for being a good dad," I said.
He smiled and said, "watching more teen pregnancy shows?"
I want to thank my husband for doing things as a dad that are sometimes impossible for me as a mom. He is able to be patient when I'm trying to rush things, understanding when I tend to jump to the worst possible conclusion, energetic when I'm exhausted, positive when I'm negative, and giving when I'm completely selfish.
I feel lucky to have him. Beyond lucky. Absolutely blessed! Happy Father's Day!
