This Father's Day I wanted to give thanks.
I recognize how blessed I am to have a husband who loves me, 3 kids under 5 who keep me busy 24/7, and a life that I love. I am extremely fortunate to be able to be a stay at home mom with my 3 kiddos, and still have the flexibility to train my clients and teach my classes that I love to do. It also keeps me sane and connected to the outside world.
Whether you're a stay at home mom or a working mother, we do a lot. We all know that, it's no secret. But today, it's all the men in our lives. Come this Father's Day, like many other women out there, I wanted to say thank you to my man for being a wonderful dad to our 3 children, and an amazing loving husband to me.
Our children learn different things from their moms and dads about life. I love being able to give my children the love and the nurturing that I do, but there are just certain things a father can share with his kids that are just beautiful to witness. Something that I hope my children will always remember. Something that I hope will keep them close to their father for the years to come.
