|Tshirt as a present for Daddy for|
Today I'm so thankful for my Dad too. I love him to bits and feel lucky to have had such a great man in my life, who has always been there and loved me unconditionally. He is a wonderful Papa to our kids and they adore him. Although I couldn't see him in the flesh today, we finally got Skype working so were able to talk to him face to face. Judging by the grin on his face, I think talking to the kids was probably the highlight of his day.

Yesterday, Aaron (12), very quietly said to me that he wasn't friends with a certain boy at school any more. When I asked him why, he explained that the boy had made a lot of rude comments about Felix and had called him a silly little r***rd. Aaron (and one of his other friends) stood up for Felix and said that he is actually really smart and our family are really glad we have him. I'm so proud of Aaron. As Felix's Mum, I have had to deal with stares, unwanted comments and some negativity towards Felix. As an adult I find it difficult some days, so I imagine being a sibling would be tough sometimes too. You're at an age where you want to impress your friends and fit in but, at the same time, you have this person in your life who you love so deeply and feel the need to defend. I don't imagine that would be easy. I am so pleased with the way Aaron responded. He didn't get angry and shout at him, and he didn't shy away from it either. He just said what he felt he needed to say and then walked away without being mean to the other boy. Very proud right now!
