Happy Father's Day

Fatherhood is pretending the present
you love most is soap-on-a-rope.
- Bill Cosby

Happy Father's Day to the wonderful fathers in my life.

To my husband: who is the greatest father of two I know. I grow to love you more with each second, and when I see you holding our children, I cannot help but be in awe of you.

James thinks you are the funniest person on the planet, and Stella looks at you, with a look of knowing exactly who are you, and what you mean to her.

To my dad: there are no words to tell you how much I love you, and how thankful I am for the father you have always been, and the "Papa" you are growing to be.

To Papooh: the great gift-giver of "Peng," James' favorite stuffed animal ever. Thank you for always being there at every event, at every milestone in our lives. You are the best grandfather a gal could have asked for.

To Alex: You're the father of the man I love. I thank you for Jason each and every day. Without you, I wouldn't have Jason, and I wouldn't have my wonderful babies. Thank you.

To PaPa Atwood: The "first" of the James... thank you for such a wonderful name, a name which my son can always carry proudly.

And last, but certainly, not least - to Larry: our adoptive father. Thanks for always lending a truck, a hand, or a beer. We love and miss you.

Thank you all for the men you are. I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day.
