A hero in her eyes. Capable of making her squeal just by walking in the door at the end of the day. The one who can fix anything. The absolute best chase player ever. She watches him shave off his "scratchies" and giggles at how he looks like Santa. When he's done, she rubs his face and kisses his cheeks once he's got "softies."

He's my best friend in the world and my heart swells watching him with her. Many times he's been accused of being rough around the edges (even by me) but when he became a daddy, he softened. He's the daddy that dances her around the kitchen with her on his toes while singing along to Cinderella. They have tea parties while she takes her bath. He does when he reads to her each night at bedtime. He oohs and ahhs as she prances down the stairs and tells her she's beautiful.

She'll grow up knowing how lucky she is to call him daddy and never question how much she's loved. And I'll continue being so, so proud of him for being even better than the kind of dad he set out to be.

Happy Father's Day! Love you, Mike.
