Father's Day

Father's day is coming this weekend and while I sit with the baby as he makes laps around his train table, I thought of a few things that make my husband a great dad. Here is my quick list:

I know he's a good dad because the girls always sleep in his T shirts when he is out of town, then they wake up smelling like his cologne. 

I know he is a good dad because he treats them to Starbucks cookies or ice cream after they've done well- or just because. 
I know he's a good dad because others have said they wish they had a relationship with their dad the way he relates to our kids.

Last night at dinner, both girls (3 years & 18 months) were talking to one another from across the table very loudly. After a few minutes of this craziness, this conversation occurred:

G- "Girls, this house will be quiet. Talk quietly." E-"Daddy, this is Emma's house!" G-"This is your house? Do you pay rent here?" E-"Daddy, Jesus gave me this house." G- (to me) "I just got schooled by a 3 year old"
