thank you daddy!

This Sunday marks a special day when many of us will be celebrating the men in our lives. What is a father? Many would agree their perception of a father is an array of things - to me, a father is someone who is loving, understanding, a disciplinarian, a great listener, open-minded, imaginative, leads by example, supportive, loyal, and knows how to challenge his family. In just under four short years, my husband has taken on this role not once but twice and in a few short months will be welcoming the challenge again.

I am thankful everyday that my children are surround by a man who allows them to be themselves, who pushes them to do their best and understands that children make mistakes and that is a part of growing up. They are loved by a man who would sacrifice anything for his family to be secure and happy.

Little Miss L., Baby D, Little Bean and your HAW
