Nikau bought his first complete written storybook home to us yesterday. Amongst all of the "Today I went to the park..." and "At soccer on the weekend..." stories, there was one very special, single sentence, "My Dad is my hero".
The feeling of pride and joy that this little five year old could write five simple words which convey so much, stopped David and I in our tracks. So much so that we have had it framed and it now sits firmly on our bedroom wall. That kid melts hearts daily.
If you are lucky enough to have a hero in your life, be it your dad, husband, brother, uncle or grandad, show them a little extra love this Fathers Day.
I, in the meantime, will be letting my husband know that he is indeed worthy of the title.
