Father’s Day means so much more to me then many other people. Growing up I did not have a father that was involved in my life. I remember all of his promises to come get me and my brother at my house just to spend the day with us or even spend the night once in a blue moon. We waited for hours and hours looking through this small little window next to our door just waiting for his car to pull up to our drive way. Looking back, I should have known within the first few times to quit waiting for him to come, but as a child, you don’t know really know that your parents could lie to you or not speak the truth. Thank you to my mom, Step-Dad David, and Mike for being the father figures in my life when I needed one the most.
The moment I met Shane, I knew he was going to be a great father. The way he loves his nieces/cousins was adorable, and I know without a doubt that he would make an AMAZING dad! He would be the only one that would actually get on the ground and act like a kid with all the children, and just play with them(which is what most kids want to do all day anyways).
When we decided to have children, I couldn’t wait to see him be a Father. Shane is so sweet, and just has a sense of calmness about him that I knew would work so well with all of the late nights during parenthood. He immediately stepped up to the belt and helped me in any way he could throughout each pregnancy and with all of our babies. I always would hear about husbands not doing anything to help their wife out with the changing the diaper, feeding the baby, getting them dressed.. and with Shane, he just did it. It was a process and something he learned how to do but let me tell you to this day, he makes sure his babies bottoms are VERY clean and it may take him a little longer to do it then me, but I know there will no left over residue from dirty diaper changes, lol!
We spent Father’s Day this year going shopping for Shane to get a new fishing reel, and just some extra fishing lures that he was running out of. Brielle even picked out a special lure that he used last week and he caught a ton of fish on it and was one happy Daddy! Brielle and I also crafted some cute little things that were special to us and gave him that Sunday morning. I cannot believe how much Shane has grown from being in High School, to now being an adult and a father to our 3 precious babies!
Thank you Shane for actively being involved in raising your children, and loving them all the way they deserve to be loved! I love having someone to walk through this life with! 🙂
Oh and of course we couldn’t end our day without going fishing just for him, and we all caught fish and had a great family time.
