Life has not been a fairytale for this dad. But he surely seems to have jumped out of a magic land. Beyond my expectations he transpired to be a super cool dad! Yes..!! Super Dads do Exist…It’s Time to Appreciate their Efforts

This Father’s Day I would like to ‘Thank’ my friend and my dear husband for being a super dad to our two lovely kids.

I underestimated the power of a dad’s patience with his kids. From changing the diapers to burping the kids; from cooking to bed time stories (my favourite time too); from playground to adventure holidays; you have done it all for our kids. I am happy to be journeying the experience of parenthood with you.

As your spouse I appreciate your efforts to spend quality time with kids. I also acknowledge the hard work you are putting in to provide us a better life. Though it is sad when you are away for work for days, yet I admire the way you make up for all the missed times.

It is not every day that I seize on the opportunities to say a little ‘Thank You’ for your endeavours to settle the grumpy children, to take them for walks when I need some time off or to cuddle them in bed when I have deadlines for work. Now seems a perfect time to say a ‘Big Thank You’ for the way you have shared kids responsibilities with me. And it’s time to let you know what fatherhood looks like to our children.

Great going with the kids Papa! There is nothing more precious than the feeling that you mean the world to your children.With your little acts of being present, your kindness and support you proved that it does not take money or expensive gifts to win your kids heart. All they need is your time, love and a lot of care.

To all the dads who are working extra hours to buy their kids happiness with pricey toys and gifts, remember that when they grow up they will have luxuries but an empty box of memories.

Make conscious efforts to be available for your child(ren). They love to have you around playing, giggling, tickling. Make the most of their childhood while you still can!
