I wanted to write a letter, so I decided to write a letter to my husband on fathers day.
Warning– may get mushy in parts! I was drinking wine when I wrote this! 😂🙊
You are my best friend and have been for the past 13 years. I couldn’t have imagined having a family with anyone else.
Happy second Father’s Day! Now a father of two beautiful boys! I know before we had children we had often talked about the prospect and you were really worried about not being a very good father, and that having an impact on our future children.
I hope you don’t worry about this anymore. I can tell you now that you are a wonderful father, I couldn’t really ask for a better dad to our boys. Seeing the relationship you have with Hayden and are developing with Austin is truly heartwarming. They are so lucky to have you. Like peas in a pod. I love watching you and Hayden watching steamies together, or watering the garden plants together or just generally being silly together.
Dont get me wrong now, your not perfect!! No one is. You sometimes lack patience and get fraustrated with them (and me!) but don’t we all at times.
You work really hard for all of us.
You support me when I need it and recognise when I need a break from everything and try to give that to me. You do the bedtime routine with the boys every night even when your knackered and still have work to do. You look after Hayden at night and get up with him in morning so I can just worry about Austin. We make a good team, dividing and conquering! When I’ve had a really rubbish day, and haven’t had a chance to make anything for dinner, you tell me it’s ok and let’s get takeaway.
I know sometimes when we argue one of things you always say is that I don’t appreciate the things you do. But I hope you realise that I do appreciate you. I truly do but I don’t feel the need to tell you this constantly. I guess I hope that you know me so well that you already know I appreciate you.
I know it’s really difficult at the moment, you are super stressed with work, we’ve got 2 children under 2 and to top it off we are now attempting to move house!! (Typical us hey!) I know that sometimes we forget to talk to each other about how we are feeling and instead snipe at each other which inevitably leads to an argument, but I also know that we will get through it. I believe in us.
Having children has been the hardest thing we have ever done and possibly one of the biggest challenges to our relationship. But it has also been the best adventure yet and I couldn’t imagine being on it with anyone else!
Here’s to many more Great Father Days to come!!
Lots of Love
(your now slightly pissed wife!)
