What A Dad!

You infuriate me,
You make me shout
You make me scream,
You make me cry like I have never cried before!
You are unorganised,
You are messy
You are forgetful.
You are temperamental
You don’t like to not get your own way
You strop like a child if it all goes wrong!
You are loud,
You are generally acting the fool
You love to be the center of attention
You always take a joke too far!

But none of that matters,
I can take all of that
Because of the man you have become

You literally jumped the day I told you we were expecting
You came to every scan,
You never left me in hospital on my own
The morning Baba was born you wouldn’t go home
You stayed in a chair all night long
You weren’t comfortable but you weren’t going to leave.
You have always got up in the night,
You may complain but you still trudge along the hall
You sleep on the floor when he is ill
You let him climb all over you, bouncing on your head
You go swimming, although you hate it
You let him get in the bath with you.
You don’t mind him pinching and hitting you in the mornings
You share your food with him, the one and only person!
You walk in and kiss him everyday, however filthy you are.
You get up every morning, and do a job you hate to make his life better.
You will sacrifice, so he gets what he needs
You live your life for him and always will
You love him like you have loved no one else
You are always scared you don’t do the best
You don’t think you do things right

Let me tell you a secret
That only Baba and I know….

You are the best daddy he could ever have!
You are his hero, and for everything you have become, you are my hero too
Happy Father’s Day Mr L xx

    The bit about sharing food with him made me smile – my hubby is the same. No-one else has such and honour. Lovely list

    That is a great poem! What you have described is strangely familiar to me – with my bf and his relationship with our son.
