When my husband walks into a room ladies turn their heads. He is very tall (6 foot 9 inches), dark and I think extremely handsome, and spends most of his time dressed in a business suit. He is charming, easy to talk to and an incredibly kind human being. If you ever see him at a wedding, he will be the tall drink of water surrounded by all the little old white ladies on the dance floor. They cannot get enough of him, and neither can I for that matter...but this is not the type of "ladies" man that I am talking about.
When I told him I was writing this post about him today he responded, "what my ladies want, my ladies get." And you know what? That couldn't be more true.
He came upstairs to our bedroom, with M, to wake me up this morning (yes he is so amazing that he gets up with her 6/7 days of the week) and M was in her favorite yellow tutu, and he was wearing a blue tutu. How many men do you know that would put on a tutu, at the request of their daughter, and have a tea party in the playroom before work?
Every morning he swaps the "tutu" for a dashing suit and goes to work in the financial district, where he works long hours, including some weekends to allow his ladies to have the wonderful life we live. He does his absolute best to make it home for bed time most nights, but then has to go back to the grind at home until the wee hours of the morning. I don't know anyone that works harder to provide such a remarkable life for his family.
When I was walking the dog in the park the other day, with M in the stroller on my left and the pooch on her leash on my right, with my almost 8 month pregnant belly poking out in front a woman actually stopped me and said that I looked "so rich in life," with so many beings around me and a smile on my face (she caught me at a good moment on a beautiful day). And you know what? I am rich in life, and it is 99% because of my husband. He is my best friend, the most ridiculously awesome father and my partner in my amazing life.
I can't thank him enough for all he does for his ladies, and I am happy to have him as the leading man in our lives. Happy Father's Day hot stuff!
