Happy Father’s Day


While we were dating, Jeramy often expressed that he didn’t think he ever wanted any kids, while I knew for sure that I did. When we became engaged, we had several conversations about children, and he assured me that when he decided to pop the question, he did some soul-searching and had realized he did want kids someday, though he was nervous about fatherhood.

Two years ago, when Simon was born, Jeramy transformed right before my eyes in so many ways. I saw a side of him that was more patient than ever, more gentle than ever, and more scared than ever before. He was always a wonderful man to me, so I was amazed to watch how he could become even more so than he already was. He reminds me to keep whimsy in our daily lives, and to stop sweating the small stuff. He makes simple things like flashlights and cars into a grand adventure. He keeps me laughing, and calms me down when necessary. He is also always willing to take over for diaper changes, face wiping, or time alone with our son so that Mumma can get out for a bit.

I could gush about this partner of mine all day. On this Father’s Day, I wanted to try to put into words just how proud I am, and how incredibly appreciative.

If you are a Dad, or have a Dad in your life who you are celebrating today, I wish you a wonderful Father’s Day. Here’s to the Dads!
