To the best dads I know...

I'm so sorry that this is late. Please know that you are amazing men...Men that mean more to me than they will ever know. There is a saying somewhere by someone that says, "a girl will grow up to marry someone like her father." I know that this is true for me. I have the best dad in the world. He is such a loving father. I remember always being daddy's little girl while growing up. I remember laying in bed at night as a child crying at the thought of something happening to my daddy. He worked a lot and he worked hard. He loves his children and grandchildren so much. One of my favorite little girl memories is laying in my bed at night with the covers pulled over my head and my dad coming in and saying, "hmmm, where did she go" and "i wonder where my girl is" and of course just hearing him say that I would giggle and then he would tickle, tickle, tickle me. I also remember my dad always singing to me and my brothers...songs his mom would sing to him when he was a little boy. Although, my dad does not live close I think of him everyday! I wish my girls could know and love him like I do. Don't get me wrong they love their grandpa booder very much but only get to see him a couple of times a year. They love love love to hear me tell them stories about when I was little.

This brings me to my next favorite amazing husband. Josh is the most wonderful father and husband. He far exceeds what I had always wished for. He reminds me so much of my own father and when I tell him this he takes it as a compliment. He sings to his girls all of the time...usually songs he has made up. He can do a mean ponytail and has also perfected a messy bun. My hunny can paint the tiniest of toes and does because he loves his girls! He is a daddy to FOUR little girls and he loves every minute of it. He is such a great role model and I can only hope and pray that one day our girls will find a man that reminds them of their daddy!
