Hi there! It’s been a while since I have blogged …. number of reasons really – too tired in the evenings, too busy, too lazy, too busy wondering does anyone really read them?! Anyhow, things seem to be settling a little around here so I hope to get my blogging mojo back!
With Father’s Day this weekend I thought I’d dedicate this wee post to the Daddy of Making Memories in The Chaos. We love you lots daddybear.
He’s the one who :
brings home Friday treats
ALWAYS has time to play with the kids, he rarely says, “in a wee minute”, “later”, “not now”
loves to play tickles and hugs and wrestling on the floor
can sit for hours pretending to be sick / drink tea / push ride ons / build with lego / play with Transformers
does the best ‘voices’ for bedtime stories
carries the picnic bag every time
teaches us that the things of this world are not important – that material things are insignificant
reassures mummy that the newborn will not combust if the room temp is 23’c / the toddlers will not die if they haven’t had their 5 portions of fruit&veg for ONE day / that the really tall climbing frame at the park is safe for the 4 year old!
can find the energy to do silly voices and tell jokes first thing in the morning
empties our bins every day and remembers to put the wheelie bins out every week
is always patient
baths the kids every night
lets me have some ‘me’ time anytime I need it
goes to work every day without complaining
stays up late to do his marking / write reports / prepare lesson plans and notes – or whatever they are called these days. He stays up late so that he can spend time with us before we go to bed. He comes home early too sometimes, because he knows we are more important
gets rid of all the spiders and insects, carefully taking them outside
gets up in the middle of the night to find the lost Mickey or do the toilet run!
keeps me calm and listens when I’m having an irrational meltdown! rarely happens?!?)
shows my kids and me daily that he loves us by the thing that he does and the things that he says – and that is the thing that I love the most.
Happy Father’s Day to all the lovely Daddy’s out there -sometimes they get a rough deal (and I know that some deserve it), but I know there are some great Dad’s out there and I know we certainly would be lost without ours.
