Happy Mother’s Day to all the single dad out there who have to pick up the slack and do double duty for their children.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the dads who put their children first no matter what.  The dads who have learned to braid their daughters hair, talk to their daughters about becoming a woman. The dads who sit with their sons for hours teaching them to be a man and what it means to be a good person.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the dads out there that know the truth about their children’s mother, but still paints a positive light for their children.  The dad who makes excuses for their mother.  The dad who never misses a sporting event, a piano recital or just spending time with his kids when he has them.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the dads who reach into their pockets no matter what the cost and sacrifice their happiness for the sake of their kids because there is no one else who will.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the dad who stay up with the kids when they are sick, makes their lunches, cooks them dinner, does their laundry and makes their bed.  Even though we may only have our children part time, we are full time parents and take our rolls very seriously.  There is no day off when you are parent and those dads out there know that! To those who have your children full time, you are remarkable dads.  You are truly the heroes in your children’s lives and don’t need a plaque, a special day or even a thank you to know what you mean to your children.  You see it in the way they grow up and the people that they become.

May every dad out there continue to be the best dad and person that they can be for the sake of their children.  Real men and super dads wear aprons as their capes and any other outfit, uniform or suit that makes our children happy and enriches their lives without causing pain.
