Happy Daddy Day

Happy Daddy Day is Jack's interpretation of Happy Father's Day. This was his greeting for Christian this morning. These two kids of ours are just so cute and fun. However, they are also a ton of work. That is why it is so important to remember our parents on Mother's and Father's Day.

Christian is an amazing dad. I believe being a dad is Christian's calling in life. For many years I did not want children but Christian always knew it was part of his purpose. Being a dad just comes natural to him. Whereas being a mom is like high school Calculus for me. I can get it done but I have to study really hard and work my tail off to be good at it.

Jack adores his dad. It is so cute to watch our babies with Christian. He does such a good job playing with them and taking care of them. I feel so very blessed to have found this man to raise our babies with.

My favorite things about Christian, the things I am most grateful for at this point in our marriage, are that he is a great dad, provider and friend. When I was younger and dumber I would likely have said that romance and a sense of humor were the most important qualities in a mate. While Christian has those qualities too, I now know those are way down on the list when you are knee deep in diapers and doctor bills.

The last few months have been challenging for us. It seems life keeps throwing us curve balls. We are trying to be still and find the lessons in all our hard times. The one thing I know for sure through all of the craziness is that I am so thankful for our strong marriage and Christian's ability to parent our children. He is a good catch. That is for sure.

Happy Father's Day Christian! I love you for so many reasons but watching you love our children makes me so proud and my heart so full.
