Ode to a Man

There is a man out there who is unlike any other.

A man who offers me his Albertson's pots for pennies stickers because he knows I've been saving up and want that Dutch oven something fierce.

A man who watches Brynlee several times a week with excitement and vigor. When it comes to meal times or changing diapers, he is all to happy (freakishly so :)) to do it.

A man who I've seen lose his patience maybe a handful of times in 26 years (hey is human after all!).

A man who is commonly adored by all who meet him. His laughter is so contagious he can bring you out of the worst mood with just one chuckle. Or cackle. And he laughs, a lot.

A man who is humble, despite his many talents which include: kid/baby whispering, wood working, Microsoft Excel use, helping with math homework, helping with French homework, helping with just about any homework..., staying optimistic when life gives you lemons, smiling and most of all listening. He has to be the best listener I've ever met in my life.

The man who I so fondly refer to his none other than my Dad, aka Papasaur!

Seriously. Have you met this man? If not, you are missing out. He is phenomenal. :)

He is! Your dad is so awesome... well both your parents. I always loved going over to watch the baseball games with your parents or play games or just to hang out. You have amazing parents and I miss them! Hope you all have a great Christmas!
