i have been laughing so hard at these photos of conrad ever so casually creating havoc on top of josh’s shoulders from a few weeks ago! haha! sometimes these kiddos are just so darn clever and fast, who cares if you’ve been parenting for over 5 years now and think you have a handle on things. ;) this right here is parenthood. parenthood wrapped up in a beautiful fancy gif!
i know father’s day is not until sunday, but i wanted to make sure i got something up on the blog before the weekend comes and goes too quickly about our main man around here, and how much we love him. josh is the kind of guy who is really good at a lot of things, but when it comes to being a father, he’s the best i know. he fathers with a level of patience and dedication and love that is an example to me as his teammate, and i want him to know it doesn’t go unnoticed. i am thankful for the way he prioritizes his family and also for how hard he works for us. there is so much work behind the scenes of working for ourselves that no one ever sees… and he does so much of it.
my own dad is also an incredible example of a hard working father who made sure getting on the floor and playing with his kids was a top priority. i was reminded of this last month when we were visiting my parents’ house and he had all three of my kids laughing so hard they were practically crying because he was doing silly things with a plastic cup as we sat around the table together. it was a simple plastic cup, but he found every possible way to do the silliest things with it, and it brought back so many fun memories of my childhood where he wasn’t just present, but was playing.
i love father’s day and the chance to recognize all the hard working dads out there because sometimes i think they just don’t get the proper credit they deserve. and i’m so thankful my kids are growing up with such an exceptional father in their lives that is josh. happy father’s day (weekend), my love! we love you.
