Thank You

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.

Love,
Me

For my sweet Heather--I am working on hand-picking 4, sweet southern fellas for your girls. Then at least one of your girls will live near me, and since Libbey and The Boy will be together,we'll have have our bases covered as far as keeping it in our circle. Christmas in CA, Summer in VA, and skiing and skating in CO. See how I work things out? Everyone's happy. No need for a high-noon showdown, please.

Dear Mrs. R., I am confident that you give as good as your recieve ... I haven't seen you two in action but every once in the while there is a family that you are visually attracted to, not because of their physical appearance but because of the way they love each other. I am sure you are that family.
Jen said…
This was beautiful. Sounds like an amazing man.
Sunshine said…
He still gives you the butterflies, doesn't he?

"Thank you for being the kind of man I want my son to become."

That is probably one of the nicest thing you can say about a Dad. :)

Petula said…
Wow! Even I, in my ant-marriage/love state, was moved by your post/letter... that is so nice and wonderful. Gave me butterfly feelings in my tummy and a sense that all is right with the world!

You're a very lucky, blessed woman... and it seems like he is one lucky and blessed man!
