He Is a Natural Daddy

September 7, 2009

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I was concerned about getting remarried.

I was concerned about finding a man worthy of a 5 member fan club (because I wouldn’t be with anyone that my children didn’t adore).

I was concerned about (God forbid!) attracting someone who could harm my children.

I had no idea I would be fortunate enough to meet someone whose beliefs, goals and ideals about parenting were so closely aligned with my own.

I was initially intrigued when I found out that my then acquaintance/friend now husband was the custodial parent of a 9 year old daughter who, from all signs seemed to be extremely happy and well adjusted.

How rare is it that a father has full time care of his child?

One huge point for Z.

Not only did he have custody but it was obvious that this was a parent who actually enjoyed the company of his child. They spent a lot of time together and everyone who knew him said, “He’s a devoted, doting, amazing Dad.”


… he even turned down an opportunity to spend time with me… to go on a date he had planned with his daughter.


Secondly, I discovered that Z’s daughter Z was not vaccinated.


I’ve only known a handful of parents (offline) who made the decision not to vaccinate their child(ren).

There are so many more examples of this. Our stand on spanking and harsh discipline, health care, even the way he talks to the children… were so impressive to me and matched my own beliefs so closely.

I’m extremely fortunate.

When you’re a mother, nothing in the world is sexier than a good Dad.


A good father uses his manly qualities to teach children about benevolent authority, about respect, and he teaches them real world skills.

He also teaches things like how to play a mean game of Polish poker. :)

He is a Natural Daddy.

He is a huge advocate of breastfeeding. He thinks it’s ridiculous how people get offended by breastfeeding in public. He is a peaceful parent. I’ve never seen him come anything close to being irritated or losing his temper, even in a busy household of 7.

When Little Z is sick, she gets herbal remedies and homeopathics.

He is gentle.

He is patient.

He is kind.

He is firm.

He is a wonderful man.

He is a wonderful Daddy.

There are so many other things I could mention here, and I will as they come to mind.

I’ve been a little busy. :-)

    Carrie, wait a second. I know you didn’t take my man…he’s still here, in our North TX home. LOL, you described my DH to a tee!

    (Um, except we had a sharp disagreement about vaccinations when I was pregnant, although DH did finally see the light.)

    I’m so happy you found someone so perfect for you. :)
