The relationship between a father and his child is so very special. While thinking about it, I decided I couldn’t just focus on one father and child bond… So I chose 3.
1. The Hub and Vinay (the day after he was born). Many of Hub’s male friends had told him he would find fatherhood boring and uninteresting until the baby was old enough to interact with him properly. I have to admit, I was worried. But I’m proud to say, my Hub wasn’t like that at all. He was fascinated from the very beginning and was (is) very hands on. I love the smile on Vinay’s face when he sees his dad in the morning and when he comes home from work. And I love the smile on Hub’s face when he sees Vinay!
2. My dad and I. He was so much fun when we were children – playing with us in the garden and tickling us to no end. He was scary when we were teenagers – making sure we weren’t out too late and dressed appropriately (if only he knew!). He has never refused his children anything and is always there for us.
3. My father-in-law and me. Living far away from your parents can be very dificult – especially when you need help with something. My FIL has always given good advice, helped whenever I needed help, provided lots of support and shown lots of love!
I’m sure everyone will understand that choosing just one dad and child relationship would have been too difficult!
