My husband’s one wish for Father’s Day every year? Silence.
When you have a busy family with three children who are 5 and under, life can be a bit chaotic. Father’s Day is the day it is all about HIM.
But then again, of course…it wasn’t.
My sister got married on Saturday (YAY!) and so we were up really late. I woke up around 5am on Sunday to feed the baby and then went back to bed. I woke up again around 8:45am and couldn’t believe my eyes when I looked at the clock. I can’t remember the last time I slept that late! And on HIS day, no less!
He had already made himself and the kids breakfast. Oops.
So the day may not have been ALL about him, but he did get some alone time after church to go to the driving range, go out to lunch with one of his fellow “dad” buddies and watch some of the US Open by himself.
But I think the highlight of his day was the Mini Athlete fighting to stay awake until the end of Game 7 of the NBA Finals. He made it! Barely. But he made it.
I couldn’t ask for a better father for my kids. There is nothing he won’t do for them (or for me for that matter). He bathes them every night. He does our daughter’s hair. He gets up with the baby in the middle of the night. He plays catch with our son. He manages our finances (hallelujah!). He is selfless, servant-hearted and loves his family with all his heart.
And I could not be more thankful for him.
