The Super Whites The ordinary life of a Super Mum

The Super Whites
Happy Fathers Day.

I was never one of those little girls who wanted to be a Mummy. It wasn’t that I didn’t want children, they just weren’t something I thought about much during my younger, more crazy years. I was so relieved when I met Ron, finally someone who I could imagine a future with, our relationship was so uncomplicated, full of trust and love and fun.

Slowly our priorities started to change and suddenly one morning I woke up and knew, I was ready. Ron put up with a lot during my pregnancy with Amy and it was such an adventure to share together and I honestly know that those first few weeks with a newborn might have broken me if it wasn’t for Ron’s calm and patient personality.

Ron is a very hands on Dad and has been from the very beginning. He gave Amy her dreamfeed bottle from about 6 weeks and confession, he was always better at settling her in the middle of the night than I was. In fact Amy still calls out for Daddy first if she has a bad dream!

Making our decision to move to Australia when Amy was 6 months old was one of the hardest things we have ever had to do and I don’t think we would have managed it without Ron’s unfailing belief that we were doing the right thing for our family.

Ron had to put up with a lot more than he bargained for during my pregnancy with Stella. I was so sick for the first five months that he and Amy spent so much time together while I languished at home in bed or on the couch. Their relationship has always been close but this time together really cemented that bond.

Of course the family dynamic changed completley when Stella was born but becoming a father for the second time simply showcased all those wonderful qualities in Ron that I have come to value so highly. He is loyal to his girls and loves us (me included!) more than anything. He is patient, affectionate and lots of fun. A great Dad who is only improving with age!

Ron reminds me a lot of the kind of father my own Dad was when I was growing up. I can think of no higher honour! Happy fathers day Ron and Dad, we love you so much xx
