I Should Probably Say This To My Husband More Often Than Father’s Day

My husband is the most forgiving and non-materialistic person I know.

Me: Should I take checks from people? Or try to figure out my paypal?
Scott: Don’t worry about it. If the check bounces, they couldn’t pay you anyway.

Me: I don’t make enough to cover another morning at school.
Scott: Your writing and sleep is more important. Soon we’ll all be living off your freelance work anyway!

Me: Should I charge for this? I feel like it’s kinda my fault.
Scott: No. Just do it.

Me: Should I offer to help even though they have no funding yet?
Scott: It doesn’t matter if you get paid. Help them.

I love the example that he sets for our children.

He’s fun and funny and supportive and smart.

Thank you, Scott.

You’re the best dad and husband ever.

And Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. He’s not too shabby of a pediatrician either. Happy Father’s Day, Doctor Scott! πŸ™‚
    And by the way, my husband has one of those “sexy” Petzl head lights, too, and it was a big topic of discussion recently, as my oldest son wore it in the dark to give the cat a light to chase. Fun. πŸ™‚ My brother tried to trend #sexypetzl on Twitter, but it didn’t go too well….maybe we could have better luck….

  2. Oh, this is so sweet! I’m feeling guilty that I haven’t written a Father’s Day post. I need to do that! I love these pictures. My favorite? The hat one. So funny & cute!
