Happy Father's Day

Because he gets up to fetch the crying baby and bring her to me in the middle of the night. Every time.

Because he sometimes says, "Take a break. I'll cook dinner."

Because he smiles whenever he sees her face.

Because he changes diapers and never bitches.

Because he knows it takes a real man to put his family first.

Because he still holds her with the delicacy of a china doll.

Because he's never happier or more alive than when he's with her.

Because he's the Sandman whose charms are irresistible.

Because the farting and the burping and the pooping are all in a day's work.

Because bathtime really is so much fun.

Because he makes us laugh til we're both doubled over.
