Super Dad

With Father's day tomorrow, I thought I would take the opportunity to tell you about my little superheroes Dad.

He is a wonderful Dad. L said he loves Dad more than Batman, and that is a big thing, Batman is huge in our house. O said she loves Dad more than Harley Quinn.

He is the one that will sit and watch Batman cartoons or any cartoon for that matter at any time of the day or night. He's just a big kid at heart.

He will have photo after photo with the same Storm troopers or walk around to find the right Batman at Oz Comicon and Supernova because he knows how happy it will make our little superheroes. And it brings out his inner geek!

He puts up with my little superheroes helping him outside at the tool bench when he's trying to build, fix or modify something for the little superheroes. He  secretly loves them helping, even though they might take off with a screwdriver or hammer at times.

He has taught them that chocolate is a food group :) And he will share chocolate and licorice with our little superheroes even though he's a huge chocoholic and didn't like to share chocolate when he first met :)

He would sleep with our little superheroes on his chest when they were newborns so that I could have a night off or a sleep in.

He will let our little superheroes colour in his tattoo or draw more tattoos on his arms and legs or let them paint his nails even though he has an important work meeting the next day.

He has taught them that it is funny to blame others if they let rip with gas, and they will freely blame Daddy, even if he's not home!

He will face time with our little superheroes when he's on the other side of Australia or the world, even if it's 3 in the morning because he knows that it will help them to settle.

He will let them talk to his best friend, or Uncle Murph to our little superheroes, on the phone even if they haven't had a conversation in months, because O just loves her Uncle Murph.

He's been there for myself and our little superheroes, just because we needed him.

So to my little superheroes Dad and my husband, thank you for being an awesome funny patient Dad. I know this journey can be frustrating but it's fun and there's never a dull moment. Even though they have a funny way of showing it, our little superheroes truly do appreciate everything that you do for them and so do I. As O says "we love you to the galaxies and back." Thanks for being a super dad!
