Fathers Day

I'm really lucky. I fell in love with a cute guy 16 years ago. He had a cheeky sense of humour and a great bum! We lived in different countries and had only met about 6 times before he proposed. I never really analysed it or thought too hard. I just blurted out YES! Some people would (and did) say that I was young and naive. That holiday romances don't last but here we are 16 years later with three kids.

I watch him with the kids and it makes me realise how lucky I am. Lucky that the cute guy with the great butt actually hung around, learned how to change nappies and actually seems to like being with his kids, and me! In fact dare I say that I often think he is the better parent. He doesn't get hung up on whether the house is tidy or what's for dinner. He just has fun. He laughs with them and in return they make him double up and laugh till he can't breathe.

Granted I don't always appreciate this behaviour. It makes meal times a challenge when I feel like I am nagging 4 kids to eat up not 3kids and an adult. Or when we are on a train like this evening, travelling home from Sydney. Two hours of Byron and the kids throwing paper airplanes at each other and pulling goofy faces in the window reflections and I was nearly ready to swap seats. I just couldn't decide which commuter to sit next to. There were so many of them sending sympathetic glances my way....

My point is this...

Mr B you are wonderful
I couldn't have chosen a better man to have kids with
You are the man I am proud to call my children's father.
I love you
P.S. You still have a cute ...!

  1. Fabulous are indeed so very lucky, as well as the kids. I truly believe it says a lot about the man who involves himself in his childrens lives.

  2. Awww...I hope he gets to read this. He's a lucky man...and he has a great butt, a great butt goes a long way.

  3. This is a beautiful post! I love it, and you really are one lucky lady!

    I had no idea Fathers Day was a different day in other countries either... Here it always falls on a Sunday in June. Learn something new every day! ;)

  4. Love this! He is a keeper! You must write about those six dates before the proposal; I am so nosey. Spill it girl! xo,Gina
