Letter to Declan

08/26/2012 - Author: Jennifer - 12 Comments

From the beginning, my husband Matt has been a great dad. He did what he could to help me with my pregnancy and post-partum and we are now on this journey of parenthood together. There is NOBODY else on earth I could do this with, so I wanted to tell my son just a little bit of why his dad is the best.
Dear Declan,
I wanted to take a moment and talk to you about your dad. I know you are only 2, but you already know that he is the best daddy EVER! He is the best storyteller and gives you a lot of attention after working hard all day.  What you may not remember was when mommy was in the hospital and they tried to stop you from being born too soon, daddy stayed every night at the hospital with us, took care of stuff at home, went to work, and back to us again until I went home. He has, and still, works hard to take care of us. We came to visit you everyday in the NICU–he HAD to at least see you everyday(and do did I). Your daddy was and is so proud of you! He couldn’t help himself–he told the man working at the bagel store he had a son a day after you were born!
Your daddy also took care of the middle of the night feedings so mommy could sleep, even though he had to go to work the next day. (He still helps you in the middle of the night when you are cold or need anything). Your daddy is the most patient person I know and I am hoping that you will one day soon inherit this trait of his.  I know there will be days in your future when you disagree with him, but he will always be a champion for you—with prayer and whatever else he can do for you–he will always love you!
Another great trait of your daddy’s—he loves me, your mommy, so much! He does whatever he can to make my life easier. Learn from him Declan because he is a great role model.
There are so many other things I could list, but I will stop here since you are 2 and have such a short attention span:)
Declan, I hope that you will soon one day understand  how fortunate we are to have him in our lives.
God has blessed us by allowing us to have him be a blessing in ours.
