Here's to the father of my children

Here’s to the father of my children,

master of bath time,

human jungle gym.

Here’s to the father of my children,

maker of dinners,

doer of laundry.

Here’s to the father of my children,

savior of baby birds,

stirrer of all-natural peanut butter.

Here’s to the father of my children,

singer of silly songs,

mower of lawns.

Here’s to the father of my children,

fetcher of breakfast tamales,

slatherer of sunscreen.

Here’s to the father of my children,

washer of dishes,

cutter of watermelon.

Here’s to the father of my children,

brusher of back teeth,

baker of banana bread.

Here’s to the father of my children,

scheduler of contractors,

dance party DJ.

Here’s to the father of my children,

buyer of comic books,

facilitator of video games.

Here’s to the father of my children,

carrier of kids,

supporter of me,

my husband,

my partner,

my love.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you.

the father of my children
