Thank you for keeping our children’s mother sane. Next » 8 of 10 « Prev
You can cut the tension between me and the kids with your sense of humor when it’s obvious I’m at the end of my rope.

You prod them along when there’s a project to be done at home and I’m worn out from prodding them just to clean their rooms.

You bring me back to reality when I’m stewing irrational thoughts in my head about all the ways I’m ruining our children.

You speak to me with courtesy and respect, showing our kids how to do the same. You thank me for dinner, even if it’s something as simple as a frozen heat-and-eat meal, and take me out for dinner and adult conversation whenever you get the chance.

It’s been said that the greatest gift a father can give to his children is to love his mother, and I’d say you’ve got that one covered.

And thank you for being at at home Dad. The bring home the bacon thing is applicable to many, but not all.
