Poor Jon's Father's Day started out a bit rough. His phone changes settings to ring at the highest volume when charging no matter what we have it set at. So this morning at 6:15am his phone rang to let us know that he had received a Happy Father's Day text from a "friend". Not sure why it had to be sent so early in the morning. Dominic had woken up during the night to go to the bathroom and so the kid's bedroom door was open. The extremely loud phone ringing woke up both kids and so I had to get up to feed Caitlin. They had slept in until 7:30am yesterday and we were hoping for the same thing today, but no such luck. I was able to keep the kids quiet so Jon could sleep some more, but he muttered some rather uncomplimentary things about some people before he rolled over to go back to sleep. =)
Dominic had made something for Jon with his and Caitlin's foot prints on it and had so much fun giving it to Jon today. Right after he gave it to him he kept asking Jon where his "Father's day present" was. We finally figured out that Dominic thinks cake goes with ALL special occasions and was hoping that Jon would share. Jon isn't real big on cake so after Dominic wakes up from his nap we'll be making a layered dessert (Jon's favorite).
Jon is a wonderful parent. As with most of us I think he was a bit afraid of what type of parent he would be. But I couldn't have asked for a better dad for my kids. He plays with them, helps give baths and even changes diapers. =) He's always pushing Dominic on the swing or giving rides on the tractor or in the Model A. Dominic and Caitlin obviously love their dad and I can see why. He's amazing and I thank God for him every day!
