Daddy Love

I never in all my wildest dreams thought I would be married to such a wonderful father
Not that I ever thought Mark would be a bad dad
I'm not really sure exactly what I thought

But here is what I do know
My boys are so lucky to have Mark as their daddy

He works harder than anyone I have ever met to provide for all of us
Then he comes home and takes over for me

He is far more patient than I
Can kiss a booboo almost as good as mommy
He makes a mean grilled cheese
And is the human jungle gym



Even as I work on this post, he is upstairs reading books to Connor

One day I will have to share the stories he tells the boys at bedtime
If I can ever get them right
They beg me to tell the same stories, but Mark does it so much better than me



So happy Father's Day Mark
You are God's blessing to me and our boys
I could not have a better partner in life and co-parent
I know I don't always make you feel like a good husband and dad
But you are



I hope that on your day, we can make you feel special
I love you Mark
We love you



The Lenzer fam ROCKS



And to my
DAD



I LOVE YOU

This is my favorite picture of me and my dad
1980

We have always had a special bond
All though we did not always see eye to eye

My dad taught me lots of lessons in life
 
Like....
how to eat well
vienna sausages or tamales from a can
 or
don't worry about (getting hurt)
it's too far from your heart to kill you
or
always listen to your car (for problems)
once I didn't do that, he took the radio out of my car
the entire radio
GONE
that would be one of those moments of not seeing eye to eye

He also taught me how to
dive
change a tire
cut the grass on cool riding snapper lawn mower
 
He is the best POPS' ever
I am so glad my boys are growing up to know their
POPS

I can only imagine how much easier it is to be a grandfather 
than a father to 
ME

Happy Father's Day 
to all the Dad's out there

Awwwww...you're gonna make me cry. That's such a sweet post. And with role models like Mark & your Pops, I bet all three of those boys of yours grow up to be great dads too.
