A Boy and his Dad: Happy Fathers Day

With each passing month the bond between Lachie and his dad grows ever stronger. It is a special bond, that of father and son. Something to behold. And it makes my heart sing. But this isn’t about me. It’s about a boy and his dad, who he just adores. And if he could tell you the top five reasons he loves him, I think this is what they would be:

1. He lets me ‘fix’. Anything and everything. He teaches me how to use a screwdriver and lets me carry a mallet. We fix things together and it makes me feel important and independent.

2. We play chase. In circles and straight lines. Up hills and down. And when I fall down, he helps me back up.

3. He gives the absolute, very best ‘big hugs’

4. And he doesn’t mind when I poke him in the eye first thing in the morning or pull the hairs on his legs or stand at the bottom of the stairs and call out “hey Troy!” (I got that off mummy)

5. Most importantly, he makes me feel safe. And loved.

Happy Fathers Day daddy, thank you for being the amazing dad that you are. x

    What a great tribute to daddy! That’s great that your little guy has such a bond with his dad. My little guy also loves rough housing and chasing with his dad, something that his mama is not very good at 😉

      Thanks Nina. Daddy’s are great at being ‘fun’ aren’t they? Sometimes I try and take a leaf out of my hubby’s book and embrace the silly a bit more. 🙂
