|Papa & Peyton on Father's Day|
Daily, I continue to learn that parenting is a joint effort! I admire single parents more & more, because I can't imagine not having Jonathan help me raise Peyton. I believe through parents you can see even more evidence of your spouses strengths (& your own weaknesses). It never fails that Jonathan always makes Peyton laugh with a smile from ear to ear. Jonathan remains calm in all situations, even when Peyton is running a 103 temperature (last week!) or when he decides to throw a temper tantrum (yes - these have begun). Jonathan & Peyton have already begun to throw "soft" balls with one another, as I can see many ballgames in our future. The responsibility of a father being a positive role model for his son is great, & I believe Jonathan has done exceptional well. I am proud to call him my husband & Peyton's Papa! We love you Papa!

1. Be Around.
2. Be his Father, not his friend. If you don't understand the difference, imagine his confusion when you must discipline him.
3. Be a good husband. Show his mom respect at all times.
4. Be home for dinner.
5. Be his hero.
I just love this little book & see evidence of all 5 in Jonathan! Thank you!
(I'd recommend this book as a gift to anyone that might be expecting a baby boy!)
Happy Father's Day to all Fathers!
