Dear Candy Man,
I just wanted to take this opportunity to say Thank You.
Thank you for sitting by my side while I vomited my guts up for the one millionth time during my pregnancy and telling me you would do it for me if you could.
Thank you for saving up all of your vacation, sick and bonding time to stay home for six weeks after The Boy was born and learn how to be a daddy.
Thank you for loving every minute of it.
Thank you for changing diapers, feeding bottles, snuggling at 2 AM.
Thank you for giving up your success so I could follow mine.
Thank you for washing dishes, doing laundry, vacuuming and waking up early.
Thank you for the fishing, the baseball, the basketball, and taking him to Tae Kwon Do (you know I think that place smells like sweaty pubescent boy and I can't speak to Master Bates with a straight face).
Thank you for letting me be crazy, unpredictable and somewhat nutty. You are and always will be my stabling force.
Thank you for being incredibly charming. And incredibly hot. And incredibly good at things that are incredibly important.
Thank you for having integrity and for believing in monogamy.
Thank you for making me feel like I am the only one in a crowded room.
Thank you for being the kind of man I want my son to become.
Thank you for being the love of my life.
Happy Father's Day.
