If you’re in the UK you will be aware that today is Fathers Day, it’s a chance for us to celebrate all of the daddies out there and show them that we appreciate them. I wrote a post not too long ago about how dads need more appreciation so today really is just a day for exactly that.
So Firstly I would like to say a special Happy Fathers Day to the most incredible Dad in the world. And despite Gareth being an awesome Dad I don’t mean him. I mean my Daddy. I genuinely got very lucky the day he chose to be part of my life. I am without a shadow of a doubt the biggest Daddies Girl in the world. I don’t get Daddies credit card or anything like that ( Although I’m pretty sure if he was able to he would give it to me)
But he is ALWAYS there for me when I need him, no matter what time it is early morning or late at night I know my Dad is just a call away. The amount of times that he has got me out of pickles , or saved me is incredible. He still fusses now even though I’m 35. Take today for example, he asked me if I was wearing Sun cream and telling me to drink plenty of water. It’s the little things like this that make me know that he is there unconditionally.
The second person is my other half and Daddy to my babies. Gareth. Gareth walked into our lives 5 years ago and didn’t even want children. Today he is the Daddy to not one, not two but 5 yes 5 children. 3 of which he has taken on as his own and would do anything for. I have no shame in saying that every single one of those children come before me and are top of his priority list. Their happiness is his main aim and if they’re happy then so is he.
It’s crazy to think that when we met Annabelle was only the age Freddie is now and he has watched her grow into the beautiful little girl she is now. He has watched Harry and Ellie grow from children to preteens and teens and now is watching his own babies grow. It has all gone so fast but one thing I do know is that I couldn’t have chosen anybody better to be there for my children, to guide them and support them. To help to teach them right from wrong. We all adore him and the special bond he has with each of the children is unique to them and it’s lovely to watch those bonds grow.
