Makes My Monday: Best Daddy

This Monday, I want to give a shout out to my husband, my baby-daddy, for being so great. I have been meaning to do this for a while but just haven't - sorry babe! Every Monday, he leaves to go off to work in exotic New Jersey so that we can eat and have a roof over our heads. It's a big sacrifice to be so far away and I know he misses us as much as we miss him. Mondays are tough here but it reminds me how lucky I am to have such a great partner in crime. So, here's a cute story I'd like to tell about him, being a great daddy.

I was putting Collette down for a nap while Billy was occupying Sebastian upstairs. After I got her down, I took the opportunity to shower and put on some clean clothes while Collette slept and the boys played. As I was coming up the stairs, all clean and human again, I heard Billy talking. So, I stopped where I was, halfway up the staircase so I could see them but they couldn't really see me. I saw Billy, with Sebastian on his lap, reading him the Belly Book I had made. He was even giving a running commentary on all the photos I put in there, as well. It was the cutest little scene ever. And that's something I never would have thought to do, since it's not a real book. Which is why I think he is a great dad and partner. He doesn't always do things the way I would do them and that's actually a good thing. He will introduce our kids to things I'd never think of and have a very special, unique relationship with them.

Here's the proud papa, a week after the twins were born:

Love you! You make my Monday...and every other day of the week, too. Head on over to Cheryl's to what else is making people's Mondays!


  1. sooo cuute~!!!! i really teared up! :) by the way, maybe it's time for a new pic of the twins at the top of the page?? since they are oh-so-old now!!! :)

  2. How sweet. It amazes me how creative and go with the flow guys can be. Husband does the same thing - making up stories and turning everything into playtime. I always warn him that soon our kids will understand what he is saying and he needs to cut out the joking since they'll believe him.

  3. Okay, that made me super misty! (And the can tell his is so in love with them.) There is just something so inexplicable about seeing a Daddy with his've composed a lovely--and clearly well-deserved---homage, Nicole.

    Thank you for Making My (and probably his) Monday!

  4. Aren't daddies the cutest? And I recognize that chair and curtain.... :-)

  5. This is a really sweet story. I have twin boys and they are almost 8 now. Daddy will just get even better as they get bigger! Especially if he is great now.
