When we were younger, the "I love you's" weren't said very often, but it was always something that was never questioned in our family. My parents never failed to show us just how much they loved us. We had everything from toys, to electronics, to a house full of pets. One thing was for sure, our house was never boring (or quiet thanks to our many animals). Everytime relatives or friends would visit the house, there was always karaoke for the adults and animals to play with for the kids. I can say with confidence that I had an amazing childhood.
To my parents: Thank you for everything that you have taught/given to my sister and I. I don't think that any amount of kind words or money could show you how grateful we are to have parents like you in our lives. My sister and I love you very much!

So here is the other mushy part of my post. I have no doubt in my mind that Francis is going to be an amazing father and I can't wait to see it all unfold in front of my eyes. I know it sounds really corny but I can just imagine myself falling more in love with him when I see him with our daughter. I see him play with Lily and Eric and he has so much fun with them. He has that innocent imagination that so many of us lose through the years of responsibility and being an adult. I sometimes feel like I don't know how to pretend play with kids anymore. Francis on the other hand can take a lightsaber and turn it into a zombie hunt at the palace. I just sit back and feel lucky that he is going to be by my side raising our child.
