Today is Father’s Day the day where we celebrate the men who have raised us and those who help us raise our children.
I hit the jackpot in both these situations.
I have an amazing dad who means more to me than I think he actually knows.
Although he didn’t actual raise me he did inspire me in so many ways.
He has worked so hard to make a good life for himself.
Trying hard and setting a great example.
My dad is also the best Grandad a girl could ask for.
He idolises his grandchildren those of blood and those of love.
From the moment my girls entered this world they knew their Grandad loved them.
I love watching them all together.
They have him completely wrapped around their fingers.
From school concerts to exam results he encourages and supports them continually and I know they appreciate that so much.
I also know he misses one little girl so desperately at times that the pain is sometimes etched on his face.
Dad I do wish we had more moments from my childhood to share.
But as I have become an adult you have been there for me at every moment.
You have listened when I have struggled and held me when I have cried.
You are an amazing dad and an fantastic Grandad.
I Love you so much.
Then there is my husband Alan the father of my four girls and foster daddy to our foster son.
Alan You rock.
Never could I have wished for a better father for my children than you.
From the moment we found out we were expecting your priority has been your children.
You work so hard to provide for them and I love your wish to give them the world.
From night time feeds to vomit filled beds you have done it all.
You are one of the reasons I love being a mom, because I get to raise them alongside you.
My children and I are so very lucky to have these two amazing men in our lives.
So from me and the tribe.
Happy fathers dad
