Happy Father's Day!


FLORAL ROMPER - Forever 21
WHITE BLAZER - Forever 21
BLUE PURSE - Linea Pelle for Target
MULTI-COLOR WEDGES - Cynthia Vincent for Target
FEATHER EARRINGS - Charlotte Russe
MULTI-COLOR BRACELET - H&M
The other day I was reading a book with Princess Sparkles about planets and I was talking about Venus.  She turned to me and said, "Mommy, penis is not a planet."  I tried not to laugh, but I couldn't help myself.  I looked over at Camouflage who just shook his head.  He was doing a much better job of holding in his laughter.

I'm really blessed to have some great fathers in my life.  There's my own loving and supportive dad, my helpful and encouraging stepdad (Henley) and my kind-hearted and thoughtful father-in-law.  I also really appreciate how much they love Princess Sparkles and Pigtails.

I'm also so lucky to have such a great husband and partner in Camouflage.  He always thinks of others before himself.  Yesterday he watched Princess Sparkles and Pigtails all day while I helped throw a baby shower and then he let my own father stay over night and hang out with us all Sunday.

Camo is the most wonderful husband and father there is.  Thank you for taking care of our family, loving us and knowing when NOT to laugh at inappropriate phrases!  I love you, Camo!  Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to Camo. He's very "manly" not to chuckle outloud at Sparkles insightful quip. At our house, the p. word was often mis-pronounced "peanut."
