He is such a hard working man and makes it known that family always comes first no matter what regardless of any situation… Also he is a loving man… he doesn’t mess around with the stereotypical things one might think of when you think of a man… He is not afraid to show his emotions and not afraid to express them…. He understands the complexity of a woman and mother and embraces those complexities to make him a better daddy… He understands that his children are a part of him and makes it his duty to love… support… and encourage them as if they are his only priorities in the world… “Daddy” is the ultimate man in his daughters eyes. … No one can top or ever compare to a daddy that has been around for their child.
I would like to believe that I also have the qualities listed above… we are a blended family… and we have the same priorities as far as it goes… with our individual child… each others child… each other… extended family/ friends… careers…I am the talker… I am who they talk too… and confide in… and ask advice… We each have our roles… I am so grateful he fills his so well.
… He plays… as I type this he is engaged in a match of Magic the Gathering with my small… my small that adores him so much… even though he is not his dad… he loves him so… I don’t think for one second it has made losing his father any easier… But I do think it makes living with me 100% of the time more bearable
He plays with smallest child… barbies… lalaloopsy… I can hear him reading her bed time stories… and doing voices as she laughs.
He plays with the both of them on the beach… while I admonish them… and relax… and soak up the sun and savor the moment they are entertained…
Happy Fathers Day to all you Dads… Living and In Heaven…or doing it alone… and to the Moms who are doing it alone… and Men who are dads to other Men’s children…
