Happy Father's Day

This was from Cork's first week of fatherhood. It suits him well, don't you think?
There are a lot of things I love about Cork. Like the way he didn't get all disappointing looking with age like so many guys I went to high school with. {What is up with that? Ask him about the number of times I've logged on Facebook, only to pause and thank him for maintaining his hair and jaw line.} But way more importantly, he is an awesome dad. I knew he would be from the very beginning of our relationship. He's just one of those guys that is dad material. 
The girls and I are lucky to have him around. I feel bad for him sometimes because of the chaos that comes with toddlers. On the one hand, toddlers can be so cute and amazing. They can just fill your heart up until you think it might burst. And on the other hand, they can be awfully loud and demanding. They wake up early. They make huge messes. And the same can be said for me, unfortunately. So I feel like the three of us sort of drag him down. But he promises he still loves us anyway. And good thing. Because I can't do this parenting thing by myself. I can hardly do it with him. Seriously. It is hard stuff. {Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong?} But it is also sort of incredible. It has made me a happier, more patient (except sometimes, when I'm decidedly way less patient) and more loving person. And I couldn't have done it without him. Thanks, babe. And happy father's day.
