Who works forty hours a week, goes to school two nights a week, has taken on two additional jobs, and is a volunteer? Who spends his free time studying and commutes an hour each way to class and his extra jobs. Who leaves the house at 6:30 in the morning and doesn't get home until 11:00pm on some days? Oh yeah, and finds the time to be a dad too. That would be Jonny. He happily suctions noses, pushes strollers, and bounces our little bug. He brews coffee, makes a mean breakfast, and always takes the trash out. And he does it all with a smile on his face.
Jon set out on his path to a career in the fire service just about one year ago. He has already accomplished so much, but we both know that he still has a long road ahead of him before he reaches his goals. He is surely doing everything he can to change his future and ours. In three weeks, Jon and I will be switching roles in a sense. I'll be going back to work (big frown), and Jon will be staying home on paternity leave for two months. I think it a lot, but probably don't say it enough- What a guy!
From day 1, Jon has been the hands on dad.
While I was recovering from labor, Jon headed up the
diaper changes, burping and managing the house.
Did I mention he looks so good doing it all?
And there happens to be a little boy that just loves him.
Like father, like son perhaps?
He's my real life hero.
Thank honey, for everything you do.
