The Measure of a Father -
A man is loved not for how tall he stands but for how often he bends to help, comfort and teach
When children always beg for their mother it can be hard to be a father.
The girls often prefer me over The Mr for comfort, reading books, food, getting things for them etc. (ie I am the good cop - I nearly always give in!) He is a good man when he pushes beyond that and says 'no daddy will do it'. As he is very busy and household things remain mostly in my realm, I love to see when he steps into my roles and nutures, cares and comforts his girls. However they most prefer him when it comes to outdoors, cleaning, daddy daughter dates, wrestling, gardening, playing with tools, using his iphone, sitting on shoulders, waiting eagerly for him to come home each night. He also trumps me in the emergency care realm so If I was cut and bleeding I would definately go to daddy instead!
*Lucky for this quote as The Mr is quite short :)
