Tomorrow/Today marks a big day for the little family Christine and I have built. Our youngest member is turning 4 years old! And it feels like just yesterday she came into the world and made mine and Christine’s life better.
I will always remember the moment she was born no matter how old and crazy I get. I remember Christine absolutely kicking labors ass and I remember her crying and screaming as she came into this world. I’ll always remember how happy I was, she was finally here after all this time of waiting I could finally hold my little girl. We instantly became best friends and took a bunch of silly pictures together
It was during those first few months together I came to a stunning realization. How did I manage to go 26 years without this little girl, she really makes my heart complete. The next couple of years had many ups and downs. We’ve fought and yelled and screamed at each other but that will never change the love I have for her
And sure we don’t always get along and hell she might even think she’s too cool for her Dada.
But the love I have for this little girl knows no bounds. I love her more and more as the days go by and I love her more than I love myself. Hopefully everywhere she goes in life she remembers that, I’ll always be there for her when she learns to drive, when she plays her first sport, and when she gets her heart broken for the first time…hopefully by then I’ll have a gun because no one breaks my daughters heart dammit.
Sure it sucks watching her grow up right before my eyes but I’m fully enjoying her grow into the little lady she’s becoming. It seems like just yesterday I was changing her blow outs and now she craps on the toilet like an adult. It’s crazy
She’s understanding, she’s loving, and she’s compassionate. She’s everything I wish I could be and she makes me want to be a better Man, Father, and person.
And although I can’t promise that I’ll be here for the entirety of your life. I promise to love you unconditionally for the rest of mine.
Four years ago I became a father, and it was and always will be the best day of my life.
Happy 4th Birthday McKenzie Mommy and Daddy love you so much
