This post is dedicated to my Mister for Super Dad Day.
I feel like I'm the luckiest girl in the world. I spent the first half of my life wandering around wondering what true love would feel like. I've spent the second half of my life living it.
My Mister is the second half of me. We think just alike, we act alike and together we are an amazing team. Some people say that the longer you are married to someone the harder it is to find that spark. I'm here to tell you that that's not true. The longer I have been married to the Mister the more I've fallen in love with him.
He is an awesome Dad. He supports me so that I have the energy to be an awesome Mom. Every Thursday night, for years now, he has taken the kids so I can go out with my sisters and have a break. Yes, ladies-- that's every Thursday night!! When the kids were younger it was really hard for me to let go and trust him to watch the kids. I slowly realized that I had nothing to worry about even if he didn't do things exactly like I did. He has stepped up to the plate time and time again. It has enhanced his relationships with the kids and also given him some serious Daddy skills.
Not only does he watch the kids but he does something super fun with them too. They have done science night, hikes, kites, paper airplanes, movies, explorations, shopping, eating out, making messes, shooting off rockets and having a whole lot of fun. The kids look forward to the time they get to spend with their Dad doing things that Mom would never let them do.
The Mister has a way of making me feel pretty and wonderful. He always tells me how beautiful I am even if I think I look horrible. He likes to surprise me with things that I really like or something that I really want. He is always offering to help me in some way weather its cooking dinner or taking out the trash-- he'll do it. He is also our resident bug-killer-snake-catcher-nasty-creature-getter too. I could NEVER do that without him. EEEWWW!
I really think I've been blessed with the perfect guy for me. He makes me want to be a better person. He uplifts and never tears me down. He is my best friend and I just love him.
