What can I say, I’m no different from every other wife posting all over Facebook that I’m married to the “best Daddy on the planet”. I just don’t post there, because Gil wouldn’t see it. Lucky you, he reads all of these, so I’ll post it here.
L.L.’s Daddy is one of the good ones. In fact, I just met someone he knew in high school this past weekend, who made the same comment. Who am I to argue with every person we meet that always says the same thing!? L.L. is so in love with Daddy it might make me a little upset, if I didn’t fit into the same little box. She runs to see him everyday he comes home from work, asks for him when she wakes up, and learns a lot of her wonderful quirks from him. Example: butterfly kisses and eskimo kisses (I tried to get her behind those and no luck, but Daddy did it)! All in all, I’m pretty cool, but Daddy is in a league of his own.
More examples of his greatness…he has also taken over a lot of the disciplining while we are trying to have a peaceful dinner or weekend afternoon or whenever L.L. decides an epic tantrum is in order. Which is anytime and most of the time, these days. I borrowed the Love and Logic book from a friend, he read it right away. I still have to get through it. He started implementing and it seems to be going well for him. Me, on the other hand, I’m not so successful with anything, recently. He helps me with so many things, since I haven’t been able to do much during this pregnancy. Laundry gets done, baby stuff gets put away, cleaning…and so much more. We are one lucky family.
I’m sad to say that I wasn’t feeling well at all yesterday to do that much for Father’s Day. My round ligament, braxton hicks, and hip pain were at a pretty high level, so I sat on the couch trying to remedy myself for a large portion of the day. He went about the day, just like any other, and had no complaints. Even made mac and cheese for a late dinner, since our lunch outing was after L.L.’s nap.
We still had a good day together, tho. Here’s the proof:
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY, GIL! We love you more than we can say. xo
