these moments

It's so very important to me as a mother to let him have these moments...
the moments that might make my heart skip a beat, but give our children such joy.
It's worth it's weight in gold,
especially when it's the very first time 
that Tatum has gone swimming.
On the days that he is tired, frustrated, stressed, even annoyed sometimes, it's these moments, the moments where his inner-child is released and I can honestly feel his happiness.
It's the special connection that they share that makes the nervousness of having the third child, quickly melt away.
It's the moments like this when he asks, "Do you really have to take a picture?, to which I reply, "Yes, it's Father's Day!" 
He wasn't thrilled that I posted this, but it was the only picture I had with all 3 kids, and at least 2 out of 3 had their eyes open.  
Summer has finally arrived and what better way to spend it, than with their dad. 
He is far better than he gives himself credit. The best judges are the three tiny people that smile adoringly at him the minute they see him. One of the best parts of my day is watching Kieran and Anna run into his arms when he arrives home from work. If Tatum could, she'd run too, but for now she crinkles her nose with happiness as her daddy whistles his made-up songs. 
They love Erik so very much, and so do I. 
We are so thankful for all of his hard work, the sacrifices he makes, the care that he provides.
We are so thankful to call him, "Daddy" and "Husband".
We are so thankful for these moments...
