Father’s Day is almost upon us and I still have no idea what to get for the man of the house. I still have some time and I am sure the kids and I will cook up something. When we do, we are planning to attach this little gift tag to it to remind him that we love him, appreciate him and we are so happy we get to share life as a family together.
5 years ago we became parents. When the fog and exhaustion of brining a baby into the world lifted, I snapped this grainy and dark photo in our hospital room at 2 in the morning. We had been struggling to swaddle Penny back into that cozy burrito the labour and delivery nurses are so good at doing. We finally succeeded, he cuddled her and she fell back asleep. He was exhausted, hungry and just overwhelmed with the newness of everything (and there are just some things you can’t un-see!), but fatherhood was so natural to him.
That was the moment it hit me… Whoa… Mike’s a dad!
From that day since he has been the best dad my kids could have ever asked for. He makes us laugh, makes us breakfast every single day and plays a mean game of hide and seek. We rely on him and he never lets us down. We love you, Mike!!
Happy Father’s Day!
