Father's Day

Yikes!!!  I am SO far behind on my blog!  I HATE that I procrastinate...

My choices are:
A) Start with current events and not update the last 2 months AND vow never to get behind again!
B) Blog mini posts for the last 2 months (minus my usual witty repertoire) AND vow never to get behind again!

I am choosing B, so here we go....

Happy Fathers Day, Stephen!!!

Brie, Sidney, Ivy, Stephen, Luke, Mitchell

At the risk of sounding sappy, Stephen really is the BEST father and husband in the world! Very hands on... Very involved... He is home at 5:30 every night, he wrestles/tickles/plays with the babes from the time he gets home until they go to bed, he gives them baths every night... He is constantly telling them how much he loves them, how pretty, smart, clever and sweet they are. TONS of hugs and kisses!

At the same time he has NO tolerance for whining, rudeness and disrespect! We are all scared when "stern daddy" comes out, but I honestly feel his combination of love and firmness is the reason the babies are as well behaved as they are.... (The term well behaved is used loosely, because they are still 3 and there are days we both think we have the worst kids on the planet!!!)

Now this is where I would normally insert pictures of Stephen with the babies from the time they were babies to now, but I am forcing myself to move on to next post...
