They are all extremely special to me for how they treat me, my kids, and the others around them.
I'll start with my own Daddy. He is one of the kindest, most generous men you will ever have the pleasure to meet. Yes, he totally gives me hell each time that he sees me, but I have never once doubted his love. He supports me unconditionally, even in times when it was obvious that I was making mistakes. I love this man!
The next father that I need to celebrate is Derek, Jake's dad. Although he is currently deployed to the Middle East, AGAIN, he still keeps constant contact with Jake. (Thank goodness for today's technology.) He is a good dad to both Jake and his new sweet baby, Jason. God speed, Derek.
Finally, my favorite! My hubby, René! He is the best papi ever to our kids and is a kick-ass step-dad to Jake. René was an only child and he made it very clear that he wanted a house full of kids...Boy, did he get what he wanted. When Gabriela was born, it made three kids under 2 1/2 years of age. That's right...3 in diapers. What a whirlwind! But, my husband handled it all in stride and with grace. He loves every chaotic, unpredictable moment of it and I love him beyond measure! Like I said, I am a lucky girl!
Thank you, to all three of you, for making my life pretty perfect. <3 <3 <3 Happy Father's Day to all of you Dads out there.
