I’ve heard people say they knew their partner would make a wonderful father, but the truth is I didn’t really know what sort of parent either of us would be. I guessed that you, my husband, would be funny and silly, plus you had values I admired and wanted very much to be a dad.
But as for patience, teaching, life skills and all that practical business, I had no clue. You were untested in early starts, constant screaming, a commitment to nappy changes and 7,653 ‘Why’ questions per day.
Thankfully, there was nothing to worry about.
With the boys, you are amazing. You have energy and patience in abundance and your love, of course, is obvious to everyone. Everlasting, eternal, all the way to Mars and back, as you tell them.
