Father’s Day aka why my girls and I are so lucky!
Today is Father’s day so I have decided to write about the amazing dads in my life.
Hands down, I am daddy’s girl. I have a brother and he is mummy’s boy. There’s nothing wrong with that. My dad is the best man in the world and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. No one else is ever gonna be my number one, not even my husband….(sorry honey!) But it’s ok, he knows.
I’ve always had a clear vision of the life I wanted to live. You might laugh, but I wanted to be a wife, have an amazing husband who is a great father, children, pets, a house in the countryside and would happily do wifely duties like cooking, ironing etc.
Old school? Maybe! But that’s the life I wanted. Now - I don’t want to start a feminist fight! I totally believe everyone should do whatever makes them happy, and this is what makes me happy.
Every girl marries their father!
Apparently every girl marries ‘their father’. Lucky for me, I did just that. A very hard working, loving, caring husband who is an amazing father. When we started to talk about children early in our relationship, Zsolt just had one wish. He wanted a daughter, so that daughter could love him as much as I love my dad.
A few years later, I delivered (literally)….and he is father to 3 daughters who love him so much they nearly break the windows banging when he arrives home. It’s a two-way street though - he loves those girls to the moon and back.
Dads are important!
I think dads have a very special place in their children’s life but for some reason, I often see that dads don’t see it that way. They tend to believe mothers are more crucial, and that makes dads feel that they are not doing a great job and causing them to put such a huge pressure on themselves. This gets me a bit mad sometimes because I see so many amazing fathers and they are doing a wonderful job. They are able to play with their child, and connect to them in a way no one else can. I don’t know why they believe that’s not valuable.
Fathers are so important to their children’s emotional well-being. They parent differently than mothers do. They teach children such life skills too. A well bonded father can really affect his daughter in what kind of partner she will choose in the future and teaches her how she deserves to be treated by men. For boys, their fathers show them what kind of man they might grow up to be. Fathers are role models. Don’t ever underestimate that.
I absolutely adore good dads. Even if they don’t see themselves as one. You only have to look into that child’s eyes and you will feel the love I promise. Just hang in there, you are doing amazing!
