He is an Outstanding Father

Yesterday I caught a glimpse of my husband, who had climbed to the top of the monkey bars, and had our little daughter sitting on his lap. They sat for a while....maybe laughing, maybe talking...I overheard something about a kitty and crocodile.

He is indeed an amazing father, and it is a joy to witness, from a distance, their relationship. It is theirs alone. He adores her, and she him. I feel truly blessed to have this man in my life, as my partner, and as their father.

As he worked on the painting of the trim in the living room yesterday, he had Elias join him. Together they worked, side by side...sanding wood and scraping paint with SHARP scrapers. Elias wants to be just like his daddy. He was not happy when he was not alowed at the top of the ladder, to peform more "work." He watches everyhting his father does, and mimics the behavior. Including swatting me on the behind yestrday and telling me something about being a good woman...somthing his father had done a few minutes prior.

He is a good husband. I am so grateful to have him in my life.


  1. I found you through a post you left on marriage/divorce at Jen's (Motherscribe.) You write beautifully. I couldn't agree with your words more. I'll be back.

  2. I'm checking in again. I tried to email but can't find it, so my apologies for the note in this post.

    In addition to my Good Housekeeping column I'm working on the Safeway campaign this holiday season. We're reaching out to bloggers with $25.00 gift cards to see if they'd be interested in talking about some of Safeway's products or hosting a giveaway.

    I am friends with Jen (Motherscribe) and bugged her about it also! LOL

    Anyway, if you're at all interested in more details, I'll write you from my corporate account. Thanks!

  3. Hello Lovely lady,

    These pictures are wonderful here. Will you pick up and write again? :)

    My dad used to hit my mom on the behind affectionately. I remember it well. :)
