To the father of my children,

Happy Fathers Day Christian!
First of all, thank you for being so wonderful!!
Thank you for loving me this morning (especially on your special day) when I had a little breakdown. 
My favorite part was when I went into the bathroom and shut the door to get a little "breather" and you lightly tapped the door and said:

"Ummm Sweetie, can I help you in there"

Thank you for sitting on the bathroom floor everyday to help our oldest daughter poop on the toilet. 
I love to hear you say to her:

"Ok Claire lets see a whopper today"
Only a father would do that!

I love you so because you take Jane for rides on your bike in the blasted heat. 
I love to hear her s c r e a m  with pure excitement as you race down the street with her on your lap.
Only a father would do that!

Thank you for coming home from work and changing Oliver today.
Because you know that I've been doing that all day long and I am tired.
And even though he always reaches his little hand down "there"
 you don't get too mad because you are his father
and only a father would do that!

I love you.
