Mr. Mom

Can I just take a minute to express my gratitude and love to my handsome hubby?

Yes?  Ok, thank you!

The schools around here have April vacation week this week, so Phil and the kids have been at home while I have been stuck at work.  Grrrrr, not that I'm bitter or anything ;)

Everyday, Phil has taken the kids to swimming lessons, run errands, cooked amazing dinners, kept the house clean, and kids happy and entertained.  He is even teaching Eamon (4) to read, teaching Andrew (6) to ride a bike without training wheels, and helping train John-Paul (8) to run a 5K race with him in June (J-P ran two miles the other day!).  Oh, and did I mention that he brought Maggie in for a haircut, two boys to the dentist, and will be taking J-P for his physical tomorrow.

On top of all of this, he has also been weeding and mulching the yard during nap times and writing a paper for his grad class.  And he rubs my tired pregnancy feet every night.  Seriously!  This man is a, a SAINT!  That's why my mom calls him St. Philip :) 

I thank God everyday for a partner like him, and I am so proud of the husband and father he is.  He is a great role model to his little boys and shows Maggie what kind of man she should be looking for!  He gives his best and asks for nothing in return.  I only hope we can show that we love him nearly as much as he loves us.

Philip, I love you more than anything else in this world ~ thank you!


  1. I love you too. Unfortunately it's time for swim lessons or I would thank you for the countless things you do for us. ;)

  2. What a babe! You are a lucky woman indeed!

  3. I think you are both very lucky!!!!

  4. Great dad and great husband....sounds like he could ALSO use a foot rub!!!!!!!
