Father's Day

This is somewhat late, but I would like to extend a Happy Fathers Day to all the dads out there, especially the father of my child and the one on the way. Chris is a great dad.

To me, a great father is:
  • Someone who is transparent: Not afraid to show his real self.
  • One that says 'sorry' to his kids when he knows he's wrong or reacted the wrong way. 
  • One that doesn't consider it babysitting when he's with the kids while mom is out. 
  • Quick to give his son/daughter a hug (even a kiss!), not just a handshake or awkward side-hug 
  • One who reads and plays to his children
  • One who shows his integrity by saying 'please' and 'thank you' to strangers
  • One who treats his kid's mom with respect and kindness
  • One who is honest
  • One who protects physically and emotionally
  • One who builds his family up with words of encouragement
  • One who recognizes his kid's strengths and challenges them to strive for more
  • One who puts down the gadgets and looks his kids in the eyes
  • One whose goal in life is to be his kid's hero.
I can confidently say that Chris is all of these things, and so much more! He is the perfect dad to our kid(s). I couldn't ask for anything more! Happy Father's Day, Christopher Doucette. You deserve it.
