Things have been fairly eventful and I’ve wanted to write but haven’t had the time and energy in the same moment. Eventually I will get back to stories from our adventure but today I need to take a moment today to say how over the top fabulous Jared aka Captain Awesome is.
It’s Father’s Day. I know that there are a lot of great dad’s out there but I want to shine the light on Jared because he would never step into it himself. He has fathered so much bigger and better than I ever dreamed when I was swooning over him in high school math class.
It hasn’t been an easy road. He’s loved the girls so hard that he’s already gotten his heart-broken a few times, Rett syndrome will do that. That hasn’t kept him away. When the seizures and questions about death stop he’s right there to play pirates and get sparkly glitter tattoos while reading stories about fairies. When he walks in the door both the girls perk up because dad being home makes everything better.
He’s not a superhero for what he does day in and out any more than I am. We are both doing our best as most of you out there in Rettland. It’s gnarly and complicated and beautiful and rewarding. It’s real and it’s our life and I am so glad to have you with me Cap’t. You are doing one hell of a good job!
