Happy Thankful Thursday!
If you’re a regular reader, you know how much I love doing Thankful Thursday posts. If you’re new around here, you might want to check out a few previous Thankful Thursday posts.
With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, today’s post is dedicated to my husband for being such a great daddy to our 2 little ones.
Thank you for being a wonderful father.
Although you didn’t have to, you came with me to many of those routine doctor’s appointments with our first child.
You were there to hold my hand with each scary pregnancy moment.
And you suggested we pray when there was nothing we could do but wait.
When I was nervous about the news we’d be having a second child, your joy in the news reassured me.
You used your vacation days to stay home with us when we arrived home from the hospital, and you rearranged your work schedule so you come home earlier in the day for more family time.
You try to find fun things for you and the kids to do when they have their individual daddy time with you, like taking Peanut to the dollar jewelry store at the mall and Monkey to Tractor Supply.
When I am feeling like a bad mother, you remind me of all the good things I’ve done and that no one is perfect.
You’ve changed quite a few diapers, wiped a lot of poopie butts, and helped clean up puke from the carpet. All in the name of love for your kids.
And even when you come home tired from work, you are willing to rough house with them, and become their own living jungle gym.
Thank you for reading endless books, bringing home donuts for the kids when you work nights, kissing many a boo-boo, singing your little girl to sleep every night, not complaining when I come home with yet another great deal from some kids’ consignment shop, and not laughing when I clutter the counter with toilet paper tubes for kid crafts.
And thank you for so much more that I can’t even begin to list here.
I hope you have a wonderful Father’s Day this year; you deserve it!
As always, I’d love to hear what you’re thankful for in the comments section!
