Father's Day

Growing up, we didn't celebrate Father's Day.
I could probably count on my fingers and toes the number of times that my sister and I saw our dad.
He usually showed up for Christmas and our birthdays, and even then, he was always drunk.

So when I found out I was pregnant, I hoped & prayed that Aaron would be the kind of dad that I never had. I'm not going to lie, at first it was rough. And he's still learning [as am I]. But the fact is that he does try and wants to be a good dad. And that is enough for me.
This was our first 'happy' father's day.
[Don't let the face fool you.]

My bio dad is a total drunk so I get it. My step dad is hella awesome and has done so much for us it's unreal. So I've been fortunate to have a dad in my life. And Matt is really great with our kids even though sometimes he makes stupid decisions that mean more work for me, but at the end of the day? At least he works and at least he tries. It's more than I can say for some dads. :)
