“Special Delivery,” he said, as he wheeled our newborn baby, tucked into her tiny plastic hospital bassinet into my room, after a quick first visit to the nursery. I’ll never forget the intonation in his voice when he picked her up, calling her “my sweetie“, or when he got me through the natural birth of our son with his incredible hip-squeezing technique. When I need him the most, he is my rock. And the children adore his playful nature – even if it drives me bananas when he gets the party started at the kiddos bedtime.
We’re coming up on ten (yes ten!) years of marriage this month. It’s hard to believe, but in many ways, it feels like he’s been a part of me forever. This month is very much about honoring the amazing dad and husband that he is. We can’t wait for Father’s Day!
When I was invited to partner with Target again, this time in celebration of Dad, for their new #SinTraducción campaign – I knew that it was a perfect fit. Anyone like me, who grew up with a parent (or parents) from a Spanish-speaking country may understand the frustration in words that simply have no direct Spanish to English translation. I’m seriously sorry mom, for all of those times I stubbornly insisted BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!!
Aligned with the campaign, we’re planning on filling our amazing man up with apapachos the whole month long. I always pick up basics for him in Target’s men’s section. This time around I think that he was most excited about the real kite, with double handles, unlike the dollar-store varieties that the kiddos are accustomed to.
He couldn’t wait to take it (estrene) out with the kids on the day that it arrived. Even in less than ideal conditions. We’ve absolutely got a super big kid on our hands, and I hope that he always stays that way.
