Being a parent can get incredibly overwhelming at times . Every parent has “off days” and especially on those particular days I catch myself having thoughts of doubt that I’m not doing well enough, that I need to do much better. After all, raising a child is one of the most important things a person can ever do. I’m not perfect and I do mess up and find myself sometimes feeling feelings of regret at the end of the day if I wasn’t as patient as I could have been or said something I didn’t mean.
On nights like those it always helps to have Daryl to talk to, he always knows exactly what to say to make me feel better and give me hope that the next day will be better.
With Father’s Day right around the corner, Zaden and I decided that we wanted to do something extra special for “Dada” to let him know he is doing good. There’s something so special about getting something someone handwritten or made for you. Since the closest store to our place is a grocery store, we walked over there one afternoon to pick up art supplies. Zaden had the idea to grab a snack for him and “Dada” to share. Our family could live off of doughnuts and orange juice so it was an easy decision on what to grab for their snack.
I absolutely love seeing Zaden at work and he did a great job coloring a picture for “Dada”.
After Zaden finished his picture, I wrote Daryl a note letting him know that I’m so incredibly thankful for him and so grateful that we get to spend eternity together.
Once Daryl got home from work Zaden was so excited to give him the envelope (and help him open it) and share “treats".
I encourage you guys to take a minute out of your day and tell a special dad in your life that they are #DoinGood. It can be as simple as sharing this video from Minute Maid with them - it’s a tearjerker:
