My Thank You Letter

Dear Dad-E,

I know these last few months, and especially weeks, have been tough on you. You have truly stepped up to the plate and taken on a million and one responsibilities without complaining, without hesitating, and without missing a beat. It's hard being down here alone, just relying on each other for help... and when I've been exhausted, sore, cranky, miserable, or just tied up in the bathroom 24/7, you've been there to take everything on. Alli is a handful to say the very least, and you've been Super Dad. You are constantly there for her, helping her color, helping her put her shoes on and get in her car to play outside, helping her in and out of the back porch, helping her swing and slide, helping her get fed (for breakfast when it's just the two of you and you're trying to feed yourself too) and for dinner, helping her get her bath each night, helping her dry off and get her PJ's on, reading her books before bed, helping her brushing her teeth, helping me get fed.... all so you can finally sit down for a few minutes, then watch me fall asleep on the couch like I'm the one that just did all that stuff, not you. Then, you help make sure I'm comfortable at night, getting me water, adjusting pillows, moving over so I have room, anything you can. All so you can maybe read a few pages of your book, fall asleep, and do it all over again the next day. I promise that as soon as baby comes, and we're getting adjusted to our new life, I'll be back in action, as helpful as I used to be. But for now, please know how grateful I am for all that you do. You're incredible and I love you more each and every day.

Mommy B

And P.S. Baby M#2 appreciates all you do too... baby is glad that you're letting me get the rest and relaxation needed so I don't stress them out too much too!
