Happy Father’s Day
I just want you to know what an awesome dad you are to our gems.
You are their number one fan (and mine too). Sonia may not tell you so, but she will look for you at every school ‘performance’ while she’s on the waiting bench. She’s definitely not the next Pablo Picasso, but she waited all day to show you her art work so you can display it in our room. Tell our children everyday that they can do anything. Tell them they can achieve anything. They can be architects, they can be scientists, they can be doctors, they can be artists, they can be Presidents of Singapore.
Talk to them. Share your opinion. Be their backup when I won’t budge, or when I’m being difficult. Help them decide what’s right and wrong. Be there for them.
You know I’m sooooooooo thankful for so many things. I’m so thankful that you are a dad who loves playing with our gems yet never spoil them. I’m thankful for the times you came home exhausted from your day, and still monkey around with the kids. I’m so thankful that you still listen to me rant about my day after monkeying with the kids.
Hubby, thanks for being so supportive and tell me I’m doing good when I felt like I’ve failed Parenting 101. Thanks for always prioritising us above everything else. Thanks for creating space and time for me to take care of myself, you know sometimes I really need my “me time”. Thanks for allowing me to chase my own dreams and for telling me not to fear. Thanks for hearing me. Thanks for encouraging me not to give up. Thanks for sharing, learning, loving and being part of our lives. You are the frame of our family.
Happy father’s day, sweetie!
Love you with all my being,
