Happy Fathers Day

Fathers Day

What is Fathers Day?

Everyone has thoughts of Fathers Day and they are all different.  Some may think that going out and having a day to themselves is awesome, some may think that staying at home and doing nothing is the best, but me, I like to have a normal day of doing everything I usually do.

Some laundry, yeah I have a little left to finish up, some outside work, yeah I need to fix our fence, brushing the kids teeth and doing some bitching and moaning and turning down the chance to change a shitty diaper, that is all what I have planned for tomorrow.  I mean isn't that what me being a dad is all about anyways?  I love being yelled at by my kids and waiting to get hit in the nuts and having my glasses ripped off my face.  I love waking up in the morning in a spot of pee from one of the kids.  Wiping ass' and cleaning up spills and everything else, I just love it.

Being a dad is great.  I love being a dad.  I may not be a dad of the year, well take that back....I am the dad of the year every year to my C's and that is what matters most.  I think about being a dad each and every day and how happy I am to be the father of.............

C1.  A 6 yr old, blonde haired, blue eyed and a little version of me in the sense that he is a funny funny boy, who can take over the room with his stand up material.

C2.  A 5 yr old with long locks of brown hair and deep brown eyes.  He has my ability to be a very frustrating child and then turn that into complete sweet love.

C3.  My 3 yr old little princess, with brown hair and blue eyes.  A small version of her mother, which is why she has daddy wrapped around not one finger but all of them.

C4.  My 1 yr old with the brown and blue combo and he is exactly like me in the fashion that he can't stand to be away from his mommy and she is the one that I love the most too.

I love being a Father for some many reasons and I don't think I could name them all.  I always knew I wanted to be a dad from the days of my Aunt and Uncle having foster children and me playing with them, to the day of me working in the daycares and even the days of working in the school system in Fl.  I if had to give anything up in my life, I know the one thing I would never give up is being a dad.

And now I need to give a little credit where credit is due.

I grew up with some great roles models in my life and they all happened to be dads.  First my POP-POP, a great man who loved me and took care of me when I was very little.  My Granddaddy who accepted me from day one and always had time for me when I called him.  My Uncle Buzz, who always made sure his house was my house. 

I did indeed save the BEST for last.  My dad. This man came into my life and had an instant impact.  A Military man, who is the smartest man around.  A man who did so much for me growing up.  I mean he taught me right from wrong and he must have done a good job because I never got in trouble and I was always respectful to others.  My dad has never stopped giving himself to me and he is still there to lend a helping hand no matter what the need.  I knew growing up that I wanted to be just like him and I set goals to be like him.

Now my father, like I said is one smart s.o.b.  He is a lawyer. Am I that smart?  Hell NO!  He is great at math, am I?  Hell NO!  He keeps up with everything, writes it all down stores it away, I can't remember or find something  from yesterday.  My dad is a runner, he can run for miles and miles, my fat ass cant make a mile anymore.  Now my dad and I are alot alike in many ways.  Neither of us can fix our own shit, we are both married to women that keep us in line, and we can both cook, he just does it more than I do.

Now where I might have fallen short on my goals to be like my dad a smart lawyer type, I have done the one thing in my life that he did the best and to me that is the ultimate goal

I am a dad and a GREAT one at that.

To T, thanks for making me a father almost 7 years ago.  It is the best gift you have ever given me and I get to live with the gift every minute.

And to my dad.  Happy Fathers Day.  I love you and you are awesome and I would'nt be the Father I am today without you.
