I admit, sometimes he’s a real pain in my… house. He’s ornery, he’s stubborn, and he’s really loud when he’s talking on the phone. He thinks “sleeping in” on the weekends means 8 o’clock, his taste is music is sadly lacking (Who hates The Beatles? Really!) and his fashion runs toward jeans, a t-shirt, and a baseball cap.
But, he’s also ridiculously kind. He cleans the house, usually before I do. He puts a lot of thought into gifts, planning things months in advance. He’s the best father I could imagine, and rides that fine line between responsible parent and fun parent like a pro. He makes late-night runs to the store when I want chocolate, just to be nice.
He’s the responsible to my flighty, the planner to my procrastinator, and just the overall yin to my yang. And he’s cute to boot.
