Now, as a wife, I know I nag at you more than you would ever be able to complain or repeat! I mean that is what most wife's do - They nag at their husbands! Ask wy (hehe...)
And since our marriage, I know I have had a larger share of things I wish for you to change....like planning more, throwing out the garbage ASAP and killing that damn cockaroach with the newspaper!
I know I nag and nag to get you to do stuff everyday so much so it becomes quite tiring, right!
But there is one thing I want you to know. Since Christopher, I have come see another aspect of you that I really respect. You sure make a GREAT dad.
I am quite sure God turned on a switch called "sensible, able-to-think dad" when boyboy came into this world. You really have a knack of telling me to do a certain thing just when it is becoming important for boyboy.
I pride myself at being able to plan ahead and think of reactions, consequences and all that stuff. But there are some times (when it matters the most) when you see further ahead than I do. Or notice something is amiss faster than I can.
It amazes me that this you, whom I have to nag to start your studies again or turn off the heater can advice me to carry boyboy diagonally and not jut leave him in that weird position to sleep. Or that you are hardworking enough to prop boyboy up to just catch a mouthful of buscuits. And you actually make plan for your little guy (and I don't mean the one down there! ;))
So dearie, I really think you are a great dad. As a hubby, we still have somethings to work on. I mean, daddy did warn you I am not the easiest person to live with!
But you have always been my stabilising factor. My calm in the midst of storm. Don't loose me when the storm gets too dark ok. Hold on to me please like I know you will be holding on to boyboy.
Happy Fathers' Day dearie! Thanks for Christopher. And thanks for your presence in our lives.
From across the miles in Bangkok airport with much love and fond thoughts....
Your dearie too...
