Why My Husband is a Good Father

Greg is a fantastic father in so many ways, but the parenting skill of his that I am most in awe of is his innate desire to teach Veronica things. I credit her large vocabularly and her ability to instantly pick up new words entirely to him.

I feel so lucky to be co-parents with him. It seems like most of the time I just feed the kid and cart her around to Target and the grocery store, while Greg is on his hands and knees playing on the floor for hours, or teaching her where her shoulders are.

Lately, he's been teaching her to count. And she's surprisingly into it, even if she isn't that good at it yet.

    I love the little sigh of resignation after she looks over at the sleeping cat :-)

    Yep that look at the cat and turning back as she does-priceless :-)
    And if only all kids had dads like Greg as you describe him.

    LOL! She’s looking at the cat and sighing at how lucky he is to just lay there and not have to count. :)
    Awesome counting!

    Too funny, right? Love the sighing. That happens to be the cat that wants NOTHING to do with her.

    Gosh, youre right. If every kid had at least one parent as good as Greg, the world might be a more peaceful place.
