This one’s for you, dad!
Here at Moms Meet, we spend a lot of time focusing on all the amazing, strong women and mothers out there, but this weekend we wanted to celebrate the men and fathers in our lives! This Father’s Day, we enlisted the Moms Meet team to share a little bit about the fathers in their lives and what makes them so special.
“Dads are most ordinary men turned by love into heroes, adventurers, story-tellers, and singers of song.” – Pam Brown

My father will be 93 in July. If I had to describe him in one word, I’d say “sweet.” He is a kind, compassionate man; a gentleman in the old-fashioned sense, good to others and always appreciative of what life’s given him. If there were more people like my father, the world would be a better place.
“The heart of a father is the masterpiece of nature.” – Antoine-François Prévost

I’m grateful for the love and affection Will shows our children and for how much fun they have with him—whether it’s going out for ice cream, endless games of hide-and-seek, or lego battleship contests.
“A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you grow.” – Unknown

I love that he is always there for the kids and me. He doesn’t view his role as “helping me” with the kids. He always says he’s their father and that’s his job to be there for us. He works really hard to support our family and is always willing to sacrifice his time to be with us.
“Never is a man more of a man than when he is a father.” – Anonymous

Proof that my husband is the best dad—our son, his mini me, wants to do every single thing he does. He follows along with his workout routine, must always wear a hat and sunglasses when daddy does, and loves to dance to hip hop. Tom and I have been together for 10 years, so to see him move into the role of a dad so well makes me very proud of him and everything we’ve built together.
“When my father didn’t have my hand, he had my back.” – Linda Poindexter

Despite my parents having been divorced for most of my life and growing up with my mom, my dad has always been there for me during the big moments. Whether it was getting my driver’s license, graduating from high school and college, or coming to watch me perform at my many (many many) shows, he was always there cheering me on. I am very thankful to have his support in everything I do.
