Wedded Bliss Wednesdays

This week's questions: Your husband as a father/future father:

1. What is/will be your husband's best trait as a father?
He is loving. For the longest time A would scream anytime he'd hold her, he couldn't comfort her at all. He kept trying and now that she is older, she'll let him comfort her. She'll sit by him on the couch and snuggle before bed. When he's working, she'll sit on his lap and watch movies on the computer.

2. What is/will be your husband's favorite thing to do with the kids?
Play guitar with A. She loves to sit on his lap, or right next to him and play the guitar.

3. How does/will your husband help out with the kids?
Anything before bedtime. He has the hardest time helping when it comes to bedtime. If he is in bed already, forget it.

4. What do you hope your children learn from their dad?
 You can be better than your parent's. My husband's dad isn't the best example of what to be when you grow up. In fact, he's the best example of what not to be. Lots of people I know don't think they can do better than their parent's but my husband knew he could. He also didn't feel the need to be like his friends, he's always been his own person, doing what is best for him.

New follower from the link up!! Love this post, and especially the last part. You can be better than your parents, and I hope we are better parents than ours..kind of..were.

I can relate a lot to the whole being better than your parents! My parents were great but my husband dealt with alcoholics for parents and his dad being in and out of his life... He knew at a young age he wanted to be nothing like them so I totally get this! I'm a new follower from the link up as well! :)

Hi there! I came over from the link up! I love your post, especially the last part. I can totally relate. My husbands dad wasn't around much do he was really nervous to be a dad and said he didn't know how. He has done SO well and my little boy just loves him!
