Happy Father's Day

The long awaited (well probably not, but lets pretend) Father’s Day Blog.

There’s this guy I know named Justin.  Well really he was known as “Davis” when I met him.  That’s what he was called and somehow around the time we got married people started calling him by his first name.  Not sure why, but it happened.

So a serious of events happened in our life.  Some of those events were out of our control.  Some of them based on mistakes we made.  Some of them hard choices we made. The final result was that Justin became a stay at home daddy when Jordan was born a little over 4 years ago.

I think Justin will be one of the first to admit this isn’t his dream “job”.  Yet he gets our kids fed.  He gets our kids to appointments.  He runs errands with all 3 of them.  He makes it through the day with our children still alive (sometimes barely).

So aside from doing his “job” to literally keep the kids alive he has done something even more amazing.  His been our kids’ daddy.

He’s Daddy – The one who tends to their needs from a cup of juice to a giant hug

He’s Daddy – The one who makes them breakfast and takes them to the park

He’s Daddy – The one who prays with them before bed and turns up the music to dance around the house

He’s Daddy – The best playground to slide down or swing from

He’s Daddy – The funniest person they know

He’s Daddy – The first man in their lives to love and respect them

He’s Daddy – The one to guard and protect them

He’s Daddy – The one to teach and to guide them

So I wanted to say Happy Father’s Day to my husband.  My Baby Daddy.  The man who sacrifices so much to take care of our babies and still has time to take care of me.

I love you Davis!
