From the moment they locked eyes minutes after her birth, my daughter has always been a “daddy’s girl” and my husband has been wrapped around Quinn’s finger.
While there’s been a few moments when I must abashedly admit that I’ve been envious of their bond, my appreciation for their relationship far outweighs that. Not all little girls have a father they happily call “daddy,” and not all men are “happy” to be present fathers on their child’s life.
I don’t let Father’s Day dictate when to celebrate my husband for being a great father and try to make him feel loved and appreciated year round, but I do love using that as his extra special day to feel honored because there’s no way I would be able to have come this far taking “mommy” baby steps without him by my side helping to raise Quinn.
Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers, fathers-to-be, like a father, uncles, pop-pops, etc. This is your special day!
All the best,
