This Father's Day, I just wanted to let you know you're #doingood. You know how you always would tell me you're proud of me after every school awards night or volleyball game? Guess what? Now it's my turn to tell you how proud I am of you.
I was always proud to have you as my dad. I was so happy to see you in the audience of my orchestra concerts and volleyball games. It was a great feeling to know you were always there cheering and supporting my team.
I remember when you were working on your dissertation for your phD and I walked into the study to see how it was going. I was in high school and had just finished my senior paper and felt pretty good about it. Looking over your shoulder to see what you were working on pretty much blew my mind. Obviously you're a smart guy, but it was that moment I realized you're like a SUPER smart guy.
It's a great feeling to know that, even as adults, we can count on you. Even if it takes 8 trips to a hardware store to get exactly the right tools to hang a light fixture in our 'vintage' condo, we know you are just a phone call away and always willing to help. Or moving in to our new home two days before having our third baby and not finding all of the crib parts, I was ready to have a panic attack and you calmly drove me to the store and bought a new crib. Then we found the crib parts and you returned the new crib. And we can laugh about all of that now.
Watching you with my kids is so much fun. You get each one of their little personalities and when I get frustrated with how one of them is acting, you remind me that they are their own people and have their own view of the world. That each time one of our beautiful babies was born, they were born into a different family and that shapes their life and their experiences. I can't wait to take our road trip to Branson with you to watch Ellie and Mads compete at Nationals for dance. It's just one more adventure we get to share together!
This Father's Day, I just wanted to let you know you're doin' good, Dad. And that I love you and I'm PROUD of you. And my kids are lucky to have you as their Poppa.
Kristin (your favorite oldest daughter)
