Today I honor Aric, the father of my children.
He has shown me what it would have been like to have the best dad in the world. Everyday I watch him with our children I see what I missed. But then again, I also see what I did right. I refused to settle when it came to finding the father of my children. I made sure I got it right so that my kids would have it right. Here is what they got...
A dad who will sit through Princesses on Ice, High School Musical, Annie and listen to the Wicked soundtrack over and over again...just to name a few very unmanly things we put him through on a regular basis.
A dad who will blow dry their hair and even attempt to put in pony tails.
A dad who will rearrange his work schedule to be at soccer games, school functions, piano and dance recitals.
A dad who tells them they are beautiful every single day and tucks them in every single night with a hug and a kiss, and a jump on the bed.
A dad who will give them a priesthood blessing at the drop of a hat when they need one.
A dad who will always be there to love them, watch over them and protect them.
This is the father of my children. This is why I celebrate father's day.
