Celebrating Father’s Day

Last Sunday I celebrated my second Father’s Day as a dad, last year my baby daughter was but a few weeks old and we were still getting to grips happy father's daywith being parents of a newborn to really enjoy or contemplate Father’s Day if you know what I mean.
This year, the occasion really had me thinking about what it really means to be a father and of course I got a little nostalgic, looking back over the amazing memories of the last year.
It’s incredible to think how much having a child has changed my life, even the tiniest, simplest, most basic routines have been adapted and tailored as her needs take priority, our world as parents revolve around her and I still cannot fathom just how much light and love she has brought into our lives.
Obviously juggling the running of BODO and being the parent of a newborn is no easy feat and I am lucky to have a great support network that have been incredible with childcare and the like. I’m also lucky to have a great team working with me at BODO, which always makes things that little bit easier.
Being a father and I mean that in the sense of being there for your child no matter what, providing support, care, unconditional love, education and compassion, is really really important to me. I’ve seen too many children suffer through lack of a nurturing relationship with their parents and I determined to be as good as I can be. Of course I’ll probably make mistakes, we all do, but I’ll always try my hardest to fix them and do all that I can to support and nurture.
To all of my friends, family and readers out there who are fathers, I’d like to wish you a belated happy Father’s Day. I hope you had a wonderful day and really enjoyed spending time with the people in your life who matter the most.
