Fathers Day

 I normally take the opportunity to write about my beautiful Father on this day, however this year my attentions have turned to the husband.

Glen, for that is his name, continually surprises me with his inventive parenting, his ability to turn any situation round turning tears into squeals of laughter. Matilda is very much a Daddy's girl, her eyes light up as he walks through the door each evening, they have their own unique greeting to each other and their funny little goodbye routine in the morning involving her running up the stairs to the bedroom window to wave him off. A lot of laughter and fun is had when Daddy is around, though he isn't afraid of reprimanding her when needed. I can see the sadness in her eyes that she feels she's let him down, just as I did with my Father. Thankfully this is short lived as normal service is resumed and they're back to playing fun games.

For me a Father is someone who will selflessly go to the ends of the earth to protect, nurture and love his child. Glen would undoubtedly do everything in his power to ensure our little girl's happiness and to keep her safe. I fall in love with him a little more each day as I watch their heartwarming Father- Daughter relationship unfold and develop. My heart sings when they play rough and tumble or even whilst they're watching their favourite Doctor Who cuddled up on the sofa. Tis a wonderful sight to behold such warmth and care within our little family.

Happy Fathers Day Glen to the best Daddy our little girl could have wished for! You're not such a bad husband either, love you Glen!
