Happy Fathers Day

I consider myself pretty fortunate... I am surrounded by amazing fathers- my own dad, my husband and some amazing friends.  I also have friends who have no children who are going to be great dads someday- who treat my children with such love.  I am lucky... and I certainly do not take all this for granted.

To my dad... Happy Father's Day.  I am so sorry for two things- one, that I am not there on Father's Day to give you a huge hug in person... and two, that I even took mom away from you this year.  I'm hoping that Milo got my message about treating you well today: no throwing up, no giving grandpa "the look," no nagging for extra walks and no begging for food.  I certainly have my doubts that Milo followed my rules, but one can dream.  Thanks for always being such an amazing dad... and thank you now for being an awesome Bee-Ba to my kids.  We love you :)

To my baby daddy... you truly embody what it means to be a dad- and I know this job isn't easy... but thanks for coming on this journey with me.  I don't know how we did it, but we've got some pretty good kids... and while they're pretty crappy sleepers, I'm pretty sure they're near perfect besides that- and I'm totally sure that's all because of us :)  (let's just ignore the wee-one who loves to say "no" and the not-so-wee-one who now enjoys rolling his eyes and questioning our every move...).

Father's Day was a good day for us... and even though Zac isn't feeling great, we made the most of it.  We started off our morning sleeping in (8:15- Woo!) and headed off to Panera (Deacon's choice)... after breakfast we cleaned for a bit (well, my mom and I cleaned, Damien was on kid duty... it's Father's Day, he deserves some "male bonding time," right???)- and then we went to see Kung Fu Panda 2 with Ed & Logan.  SUCH a good movie... I'm a fan.  After the movie we came back here for some fun in the sprinklers and dinner... all in all, I would say a good day :)
