Most of my readers know that I am a stay at home/work at home mom. What you might not realize is the man that makes this possible is my loving husband, the man who also is a wonderful dad to our boys. He is my behind the scenes hero and our boys’ everyday hero! While he may not don a cape, he certainly rescues us from some everyday tragedies! Spider in the kitchen? No worries, Dad will rescue us from the fearsome beast. Jelly lid stuck? Have no fear, Dad is near! He has inspired the boys to take on the same fearless role that he holds in the house. They too want to rescue me from everyday sticky situations. lucky for them, their dad loves to let them tag along on these rescue missions!

2. Ridding the backseat of snacks gone astray
Fish crackers, candy wrappers, and french fries from long ago. There’s lots to be done in the backseat of the car!
Superhero sidekick task: Peer into the the smallest of spaces (under the floor mats and the seats!) to make sure everything has been collected.
3. Weeding the yard
It’s a never ending job!

It’s a dirty job that Dad is always willing to do. Thanks for your heroism, Daddy!
