Father & Son

 

Father-and-Son-Quotes

For many that know my son’s father was unable to be around him physically for 4 1/2 years of his life. Although, he was well aware of what was going on with his twin. For 1 1/2 he was a present father, and it was hard not being around his child. I remember the phone call we had when I told him our son was diagnosed with Autism he wanted to understand what exactly it was.

In a random event he was able to come home. We thought about how our son would react and it was like he had never left. This little person who looked just like him, gravitated to him and seemed to remember exactly who he was. So much so that he kicked me to curb, for him. If you know my Potato he has been stalking me for the better part of almost 6 years.

All the professional said, once his dad is around he will do way more by copying him. I was very skeptical. Surprised to say, he is doing more self care, seems like small beans. But the fact that he is brushing his hair, teeth and using the potty way more. All thanks to watching and emulating his father is short of amazing. When I told his dad, he understand that although it seemed small, he was a big deal. Our son shows off and shows his dad exactly what he knows how to do.

I’m looking for more progression. All the elements have come and he will be doing a lot more. We are extremely proud of him. But watching their relationship and bond grown is amazing.

Fathers are important to our children. This has been a blessing and I cannot wait to see more.

Single Mothers & Father’s Day 06/02 by G-F-T Radio | Podcasting Podcasts

Many times we have talked about this questions. Random memes have showed up on TL about should single mothers celebrating Father’s Day when they are not men? We know there are a lot of single parents that do everything for their children but do that give them the right to take over a holiday that was used to highlight fathers who are present in their children’s lives. Our friend Anthony who posed this question on his facebook will be joining us on this podcast.

Is it disrespectful for women to celebrate both Mother’s and Father’s Day?
