Scott loves notes and words of affirmation. So
I wrote out Judah wrote out reasons why he thinks his "dad is rad" then gave this to him in his very own Super Man coffee mug since his father is his hero.
Then we spent the entire day just hanging out as a family.
We went on a family walk where Scott was able to help my heart process why fathers day is so hard for me. He not only affirmed that he loves being Judah's daddy but he also loves being my husband. Then we stopped by the park and my heart just smiled watching Scott play with Judah. In my mind I was thinking "Judah has such a great dad, one who plays with him, who wants to hold him all the time, who loves to read to him or sing him silly songs". Judah has the best dad in the world.
My father may not have been the best father, he is probably listed as one of the worst. But Judah, he has been blessed with one of the best fathers. One who insists on tucking him in bed at night, who stops what ever he is doing and leans down to Judah's eye level to see what he is trying to say. Scott was born to be a father and Judah was meant to be his son.
I don't typically know what to say for "fathers day" posts because I don't have a long list of reasons why my dad was awesome because he is quite the opposite. One of the reasons why I started dating Scott years ago was because he told me about how awesome his father is and I knew Scott would be an awesome father just like his dad. The two years since I've been a mom, fathers day is more about my husband and less about my own father. As a Judkins, fathers day is a joyous day, celebrating the men in our family, I know one day Judah will be a great father because he wants to be just like his own father, my husband Scott.
