My Baby Daddy

I just want to take a moment on Father's Day to talk a little bit about my baby daddy, and yes, it is Eric.

I knew I always loved Eric, from the night of our first date on I knew he was special. When we got married I was thrilled, but I don't think I knew how much I could really love him until I got to know him as a father. On one of our first dates he told me how much he wanted kids (and that he would love it if his wife died, and he was left alone as a single Dad. Weirdo! Don't worry, he's since retracted that statement). I wasn't so sure I was into kids, and I think that made him worry about me as a wife a little bit. Thankfully he got me to change my mind, because I know neither one of us could become the person we really need to be without becoming parents first. I am also very grateful for the balance Eric provides in our family. There are many, many things that he will introduce our children too that I would never dream of. I am glad he will take them hiking, camping, fishing, hunting, etc. He will even teach them how to start fires in the backyard.

Anyway, I love Eric, he gives everything he has for this family, and I am so grateful for that.

Laura I am totally serious when I say we need to get together. I keep reading your blog and missing you guys. I'm out of town for girls camp this week, but I'll be calling on you for the next week if you'll be around.
