There are many reasons why I love my husband and think he is an amazing father, not the least of which is when Monkey does something like this when we’re out at dinner…
Nathan responds in kind and elicits the kind of belly laugh from Monkey that causes everyone around us to smile and laugh, too.
There are so many things that make my husband a wonderful father, he’s funny and a kid at heart. He’ll get down and roughhouse, tickle, wrestle with them or swing them in the air and let them pretend that they’re supergirl or superman.
He knows just how to cuddle them when they’re hurt or sick and how to discipline them without making them feel like less of a person. He has a firm hand and a soft heart and when I happen to walk in on him curled up in the big pink princess bed with our kids snuggled up next to him, reading them a book.. my heart just melts or when I see him teaching our son to open doors for other people and say yes ma’am and no ma’am.. I know that there’s another amazing generation of southern gentleman being raised.
I could write for days about all the things that make my husband such a wonderful daddy to our kids, but I won’t.. at least not today.
