Thanks #21 (Sue)

I am thankful for Sue. She is the mother of Steve, Ryan, and Erin. I am thankful that she did not, and has not stopped being their mother. A good mother, who has used all she knows of parenting, and even learned more in order to do her best as a mother. As their father, I am fortunate to have had a parenting partner who has been as committed to being mom as Sue has. The challenges we’ve faced and our differences aside, we still communicate often and work together to be consistent, caring, and involved as parents; and I’m very thankful for that.

Thanks #20 (Yesterday)

I’m thankful for yesterday. Yesterday was just a nice, quiet, relaxing day. Amaris had a vacation day and we were able to just enjoy the day together with the twins. It was a restful morning compared to most. We both went to My Gym with the twins, then we got them each a donut, and stopped by the workplace of a friend of ours along the way. Then we returned home and played with the kids for a while. We had open-faced turkey sandwiches with gravy and mashed potatoes for lunch. I was able to grab a nap, and the twins also got some sleep. It was just a great day. A day I’m very thankful for.
