I know you won't mind one bit, if in your absence, I pass my Father's Day wish to your Grandson this year ...
Happy Father's Day Anthony!
I watched as you and Toby laughed together yesterday, I watched too, as your son was so excited to share his discovery of snails in the shed, with you, his Daddy. I watched when you ran to scoop him into your arms as he fell on our walk to the ice-cream shop and when you carried him and his bicycle, in this flaming June heat, until he was happy to try independence again. Later I watched as you helped him at the dinner table and as you took him for a quiet chat when he needed a little help to remember his manners. I saw you keep your cool when his inner naughty two year old bubbled up and I saw how my grandson listens to you with the love and respect a toddler only ever grants someone he truly trusts. I watched the two of you together and couldn't help but think what a great daddy you have become.
Toby is one lucky little munchkin to have you (and his very special mummy) guiding him and loving him.
Happy Father's Day Son.
You make me so very proud.
