A is for Awesome, that's who you are, Dad.


That little guy with your eyes and her nose and your grandma’s knitting talent?  That little lass with her eyes, your nose (poor thing) and her grandad’s woodsplitting ability?  They think you are awesome. 

We won’t tell them that we feel weak and tired and inadequate.  We will live the right way though, to keep them thinking we are awesome, though won’t we?

My posts will be centered on Dads this April, what it means to be a good one, some ideas, some fun stories. I hope you'll keep coming by, even if you're not a dad, or send a dad by, just for fun. Have an Awesome April everyone!

My Daddy is a pretty awesome man. Now, just after the birth of my second child, I'm thrilled to see my husband in this awesome role. Looking froward to lots of daddy stuff this month. Good luck A to Z-ing!

Great post, great theme. I love my awesome dad.

Horst Peters said...

This dad is saying goodbye to his firstborn who's leaving to go halfway around the world for the next 5 months.

I'll keep coming back - all dads need encouragement, support, and different ideas and approaches to being a dad.

Thanks.
