You know you're a good Daddy when..

..you love Jesus more than anything.

..you pick up the children from school, more than Mommy does.

..you watch boy movies with our boy-man.

..you read the Happy Hollister series to our children.

..you plan.save.work your fingers to the bone. so we can have a family vacay.

..you work 3 jobs so we can survive, and so Mommy can be a mom.

..you recognize when you make a mistake, and quickly remedy it.

..you are a responsible, hardworking, godly man thus teaching our son how to be one, and teaching our daughter how to recognize one.

..you tuck our children into bed most every night, complete with snuggles/wrestling/and prayers. And sips of water. And ice packs.

..you take excellent care of Mommy when she is sick (which is alot) and little eyes are watching that compassionate care-taking.

..you don't eat gluten, even though you could, because the rest of our family can't.

..you know that our son likes Root Beer, and our daughter likes Pink Lemonade.

Honestly, the list is nearly endless. These are the things that are freshest on my mind right now. I didn't get you a card, but thought a virtual declaration would be fitting.

Man alive... I love you. We have been.through.some.STUFF. But there is Redemption and it is amazing. And I wouldn't want another soul to be the father of our 2 squishes that we have been blessed with.

Until next year, when the list grows longer...
