Father’s Day is almost here, and it’s time to celebrate those fathers and father figures in our lives!! This last year has been really tough on Moms, but it’s been so challenging for Dads too! So many changes and inconsistencies, stress, and just so many feelings of being out of control. Parenthood has been at its hardest recently, and it’s definitely a year to go big for those Dads we love and appreciate! Though we aren’t married anymore, it’s been awesome to watch Kyle really come into his own in a big way in his role as a Dad recently. Having three kids on your own isn’t easy, and he’s been doing such a great job taking it on and thriving with them. Not to mention moving house a couple of times and setting up new environments for the kids in each place. It’s a lot! I’m super proud of him, and I’ve watched his relationship with each of the kids get so special and deep as a result of spending more time with them just the four of them. It’s clear that everyone is benefitting as a result!
I definitely didn’t have a typical upbringing myself when it comes to a father figure. My parents split up when I was quite young, and I only spent time with my father sporadically. My stepfather (Pappy T!) came into my life when I was three and a half, and stepped in to most of those parenting roles. While there is still a lot for me to work on emotionally from my childhood, I think the greatest gift it’s given me is the insights to best navigate my own blended family co-parenting situation with my own kids. I really believe in allowing life’s obstacles to become our greatest teachers…and it’s definitely proven to be true in this case.
I want to shout out all the Dads who are doing the work, and putting in the time with their kids– biological or not! You are making a difference in those kids’ lives, and they really will thank you one day. You are essential and loved, and doing a great job. Keep doing it! Today I wanted to share my Gift Guide for Father’s Day. These are all products that the men in my life LOVE and recommend, and some things that I’m getting for the Dads I know for Father’s day. Let me know which one is your fave!
