They call him Daddy

We always say he is one of the "top ten Dads". I whispered this in Seth's ear so he could deliver the message to Dr. Gooch this morning. Seth crawled up on the bed beside Craig and announced "Your one of the doped up Dads!" Well, not the case exactly, but he is "high" on life to be sure. It takes a lot to get him down and his enthusiasm is infectious to these kids. You'd think Santa were sliding down the chimney when they hear the door upon his arrival home from work. The house erupts in glee.

He is always sweeping the kids up and out the door to go find some new fun (and, I think give me a rest). I love to hear about their adventures when they come bounding back in the door: sweaty, sometimes wet, dirty, and usually with faces covered in some sort of sweet sticky stuff.

He adores these kids.
He LOVES to lose sleep over them.
I married the Man Made for Me--that he is a fantastic father is the cherry on top!

One more thing - I couldn't help but notice the USMLE book hiding behind the pillow. :)
