A Day For Fathers

A little girl looks to her daddy to adore her and show her love and security. A little boy looks to his daddy to teach him how to be a man. I was lucky enough to have one of the best daddies in the world, and I always dreamed that my children would have it the same way. I'm the luckiest mama in the world to have Colin. He adores Emma and Drew and dreams with me about future possibilities.

He is wrapped around Emma's little finger already. She batts those adorable big round eyes at him and he's sold, on whatever it is that she wants. She has brought him to tears with those gorgeous eyes. She is going to be such a daddy's girl. I'm ok with that.... it's the way that it should be, but I just hope that she's easy on him because he is seriously wrapped... haha.

Drew is his best little buddy. Just last night when I was trying to put Drew to bed he went into hysterics because he wanted "to...sniff sniff... see... sniff sniff..... daddy..... sniff sniff." He loves his daddy so much. They have so many jokes, games, and secret handshakes I can't even keep up.

We had a great Father's Day weekend together. We made it a point to clear our calendars and spend the time together as a family. It was nice to slow life down for the weekend and enjoy Daddy. We ended the weekend with a great Father's Day meal. I made crawfish po'boys (we ordered extra crawfish at the crawfish boil and sat on our back porch together and peeled crawfish all night long one night and froze it for just such nights). We ate outside and enjoyed our Louisiana dinner with our Canadian daddy in North Carolina...whew!
