My husband is amazing in so many ways. He is the very best Dad a little girl could have. That three little girls could have. He plays with them, while I watch from a safe distance on the couch. He hugs and kisses them, he reads to them and tucks them in. He taught them how to play Street Fighter and how to burp. Because of him they have the worst sense of humor ever. We will all be in hysterics over someone farting in the car. We are very mature.
He tells them he loves them, that they are beautiful, smart and funny. Even when they are butchering a knock knock joke.
"I farted on your face!"
Commence hysterical laughter from the back seat.
He wants them to know that they never have to depend on someone else. He teaches them life skills so they can do it on their own. He wants them to know that sex does not equal love, and that teenage boys lie. He wants them to be cautious but still excited about the world. He sets an example of how a marriage and love are supposed to be. He shows them how a man is supposed to treat their loved ones. (or a woman if that ends up being their bag) He wants them to know that, while they don't have to since he has prepared them for the real world, they can always depend on their Daddy.
He also does the hard stuff. He teaches them that their are consequences. Because that's part of preparing them for the big world too.
And for me, he gives me a break. He listens to me vent. He doesn't judge me when I break down and yell at them, or just want them to play in their room so I can have 5 minutes of alone time. He loves me full stop and accepts me flaws and all.
In short he is the best Daddy in the whole wide world.
