Real Daddies.

Fathering a child doesn’t automatically make you a Daddy.  Any fool can procreate, but it takes a real man to be a Daddy because being a Daddy is not an easy job.

Real Daddies carry heavy burdens gracefully.

Real Daddies lead the way for the children.

Real Daddies are often buried in their work.

Real Daddies are there for important things.

Real Daddies keep their eye on what matters most.

Read Daddies have arms big enough for all their children.

Read Daddies make their kids laugh.  A lot.

Read Daddies teach their daughters how to dance.

Real Daddies balance things out in the family.

Real Daddies stand by your side, even in stormy weather.

Real Daddies support their children when they try new things.

Real Daddies are there when things get slippery.

Real Daddies don’t take themselves too seriously.

Best of all, real Daddies love their babies always and take joy in their accomplishments, big or small.

I’ve been doubly blessed in my life.  First I had a wonderful Daddy who never let me down  from the moment I was born until the day he died.  Second, I was smart (and lucky) enough to find a man who has turned out to be the best Daddy I could ever imagine to my children.

So today this post is dedicated to the two men that I would consider the very best, real Daddies in the entire world.  How thankful I am to have you both in my life.

    That is so beautiful Ami! I feel the same about my dad. He always took us on “adventures”. Sometimes that was a car trip yo the canyon to scope out nature, and sometimes it was a trip to the grocery store to get a candy bar. He continues that tradition even now. All the grandchildren know that a trip to grandpa’s house will consist of dinner and then an “adventure.”

    Happy Father’s Day
