Part of what makes Darren such a good husband is that he is such a great Daddy! Take today, for instance.
He woke up early and set the boys' sandbox up as a surprise for them. (It's been dismantled for a few months while we did some major work in the backyard.)
As he does every morning, when Dani goes for her morning jog, he waits for her return before he leaves.
Aidan said to me this afternoon, "I hafta get my shoes on, 'cause Daddy's taking us kids somewhere. And you're not invited. You need a break. That's what Daddy said."
Upon their return, Aidan said, "We bought you a surprise, but I'm not supposed to tell you, 'cause it's a secret."
While they were out, Darren bought them gum and candy, just because.
And part of what makes him such a good Daddy is that he's such a great husband!
While they were out, they shopped for my birthday, and the only gift they bought is the one that the boys picked out. :)(I wonder if they can keep the secret for a whole week??)
He cooked brunch for all of us.
Tonight, he took me out on a date. (We saw the new Batman movie.) When Ian cried because he wanted to go, Darren said, "I'm taking MOMMY on a date. It's her turn.
Back at home, we sat in the car in the driveway, with the stereo cranked as loudly as we thought old Mrs. Schou next door would allow (and then some)... and jammed to Boston's "More Than A Feeling". Niiiiice.
Once inside, we cuddled on the couch, alternating between ESPN, CNN and HGTV. (Nerds. We are definitely nerds!)
I'm one lucky girl. Being married to my best friend -who happens to be a great Daddy- is serendipitous. It's the dream I never knew I had. These may seem like little things, but you know what? Little things rock my world! And this was just today. I can't wait for tomorrow. :)
