I’m not kidding when I say that I don’t believe in the idea of Father’s Day so much as I believe in the idea of Daddy’s day. I honestly don’t think that every man out there, simply because he is a Father, deserves a day devoted to their goodness and wonder. We all know that we live in a world where many parents, especially Father’s are not in the picture or not doing their parts to nurture and grow their children into adults – that’s why I’ve always said that to me there is a difference between being a father and being a Daddy. A father is someone who is simply so by the mere fact that the child has their DNA coursing their every genetic component of their body while a Daddy is so much more. A Daddy is someone who is there for his children, cares for them, loves them…..A Daddy is someone who is not afraid to get down on the floor, act like a monster, wear a tiara, or read the same story for the 800th time when its already past bedtime. A Daddy is someone who kisses owies, picks you up when you’ve fallen down, and comes to your sporting activities and dance recitals because he wouldn’t miss it for the world. I can not ever explain to you how fortunate and lucky I feel that my children are to have Mike as their Daddy so today and every day we celebrate him and what he means to our family because in my eyes he is the exact example of what it means to be a Daddy.
