When Shutterfly and Resourceful Mommy Media offered me the chance to share a story about a special mom, dad, or grad I immediately knew who I would write about.
Sure I think my mom is special and my dad is amazing, but the first person who came to my mind was my husband.
My husband is just a wonderful father. From the time our kids were born he has been hands on from getting up in the middle of the night to change a babies diaper and now that our kids are older he volunteers in their schools.
Once a week he goes to our sons classroom and helps with reading. Essentially, he pulls kids out of the classroom and has them read out loud to him for practice. I love hearing him talk to our boy during dinner about things that went on in class while he was there and it cracks me up that half the time our son forgets he was even there!
He is equal parts soft and stern when he needs to be and he’s always there to take over when I am at my wits end.
Not only that, but he also had a hand in raising 2 amazing older daughters. Oh, and I have to mention that he is now a granddad.
When it comes to holidays that call for gift giving, I always try to give him something that reminds him what a great dad he is. Whether it’s a photo of the all the kids together to display in his office or a small photo book of all the kids’ favorite times with him.
