The men in my life

My daughter's father...

This Father's Day was an extra special one; it was Conrad's first! He is such a good dad. Olivia already has that man wrapped around her little finger.
"Can we wake her up and play with her, please?"
He says this at least once a week.

Nothing melts my heart quite like seeing these two together. I love them so much!

Conrad is so optimistic.  Yes, sometimes it drives me nuts when I want the kid to feel sorry for me and moan and groan with me. But really it's so good for me. It's good for me to be reminded why the little things that drive me nuts don't really matter, reminded why I should be happy, and how the life I live is so good.
[because it is!]
He's good looking! I mean come on. Look at that face.
I love how he calls us his girls.
I love when he surprises me with treats.
I love when him and Liv visit me at work just because he knows how much I'm missing them.
I love when he [lies] and tells me I look pretty in the morning.
I love when he plays Michael Jackson. Especially when he dances to I Wanna Rock with You
I love when he texts me links to songs.
I love his ringtone for me.
He is so good for me. Olivia & I... well we're lucky girls.

My father...

One of the reasons I love seeing Olivia with her dad is the love I have for my own dad.  He is everything you could want in a father figure. Here are a few things I love about my dad. The list is endless.
Hard worker-- He works anywhere from 14-16 hours a day. And you know what? I don't think I've ever heard him complain. Never once have I heard him say "I'm tired. I don't want to go to work." 
Gardener-- Boy do I love his garden! Fresh peas, raspberries, blackberries, corn, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans, onions, peppers, I love it all!   
love for my mother--It's the sweetest thing to see/know how much your mom and dad love each other. They have raised 6 kids together! They are an amazing couple. I love them and I love the love they have for one another.

Happy late father's day to all you dads out there! and future dads and anyone who knows a dad or has a dad. You're so important and so loved.
