This morning as we waved him off for his weekend away I was reminded how important my children's father is to them. Here's why:
1. When they are sick he doesn't run around the house grabbing bottles of medicine and inhalers whilst frantically thinking 'they are going to die, they are going to die, they are going to die'. He calmly deals with the situation and they are all the better for it.
2. He does all the 'pop to the shops' runs in the rain for all the necessities - milk for bottles, bread for breakfast, wine for Mummy...(well they do say a happy Mum equals happy kids).
3. When he picks them up they get to see a proper view of the world - all 6ft 2" above it (rather then a squat 5ft2" view when I do it. They might as well just stand on tiptoes).
4. When he takes just one of them out on their own for special 'Daddy Days' it makes them feel like the most important person in the world.
5. He throws them in the air, pushes them over, wrestles with them and plays rough and tumble while I dance around on the sidelines going 'ooo, ooo not too hard, careful now, mind the table, oh I can't look'.
Only two more sleeps 'til they get him back.
