Cheaper Than Therapy

So.... It occured to me today, as I was looking through old facebook photos,
that in all the time I have been blogging I have never posted anything about
Trinity's father. Odd.  She does indeed have one. I am no Virgin Mary,
and there were no wise men at my door ~ EVER!

So, my choice of pics for today... need no words of introduction.  Except to say 
they speak volumes as to the kind of father he is.
Trinity was too scared to go on this ride by herself.  So without any hesitation, Daddy came to her side, all 6'4" of him.!!!  

(See what I mean?)
This totally made her day!!! She still talks about it.
And I, of course, PEE'd in my pants the whole time!

It was funny as hell, to stand and watch him go 'round and 'round
and 'round like that, and yet so heartwarming at the same time.
He shrugged the whole thing off, even when strangers were coming up to
us, expressing their admiration. 
"What's the big deal" he said to me....  I just smiled.
This is a man would do anything for his little girl, he is a devoted, loving
father who always treats her with respect, and makes time to see
her almost daily. 
...  and it helps make this "single mother" gig feel a little
less "single" when it comes to raising our daughter ♥

And THE AWARD GOES TOO......... !!!

Tara loves that ride at the carnival!

That is so great! I know a lot of Father's who would not do anything like that. I know some that don't take an interest in their kids at all!

Boy, now that was a really nice post! How nice of you! A great Thousand Words Thurs for sure.

Suzanne said...

That is so funny...I've never really posted about my husband/my girls daddy either. Hmmm...wonder how someone would analyze that. hahaha He is good like yours and I loved this post about Trinity's daddy!

Daddy's are the best to little girls and I am glad to hear, "This is a man would do anything for his little girl, he is a devoted, loving
father who always treats her with respect, and makes time to see her almost daily." That IS awesome! Cute pictures, too. :)

That was so sweet of you to shine a little light on him. Your daughter is a brave one to go on that ride!

It's so nice to hear about a participative daddy! Trinity is lucky. Tell her I'm glad she liked the butterfly pictures!

Frugal Vicki said...

I think this was the nicest thing I have read in awhile. It is so very very important to put your own pain and anger aside to raise your daughter together, and I think it is SO fantastic that you were able to do this. It really shows me the kind of person that YOU are! Great job mama!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Now that's what I call a GREAT Dad!

Love the pics you were able to get! Happy ATWT!

And I must say that it's wonderful that the 2 of you are able to come together for your daughter...I don't know your situation...this is my first time visiting so only mean that in the nicest way.

SAHM-I-AM said...

What a great dad. Your post made me smile and also feel like I need to pay tribute to my own Good Man. Glad I finally had a chance to visit.

Lisa said...

My hubs is 6'4 too, how funny! Love the leg shot.

What a good daddy. I could really learn a thing or two from you on how to NOT talk smack about the menfolk.


mudmama said...

Oh Michele, that is AWESOME!!!! So great that you have love and respect for the man that is 1/2 her! And how great that he is such a good Daddy!!!
And, wha' wise men? What gives! ;)

amanda said...

magda said...

awesome pic and super memory for trinity. very sweet, if not hot! nothing sexier than man taking good and kind care of a child. how is that men are sexy for getting old and being caring or fatherly? we get old and care endlessly for our children and those of others. and somehow, sexy is not what people think. picture mom with 3 demanding kids treking through airport...tons of judgment, as to why she is alone and why the kids aren't doing better. man alone with a child traveling....whole nutha story. i too, am guilty of this...and still i don't get it.
