to geoff on father’s day

The Schultzes

Last night Geoff took me out to dinner to celebrate our 5 year anniversary.  Over chicken parm and shrimp caesar salad, we took turns telling of the things that we were grateful for.  After sharing things like being grateful for fingernails and cheesecake, I looked at Geoff and told him how grateful I am that he is such a great daddy to Boone.  And I meant it with everything that I am.

This man has been a wonderful father since the beginning – since that first cuddle with him the day he was born.  Through the sleepless nights, the grueling feeding schedule, the dirty diapers, dealing with the hormonal and emotional mother…he was so involved and served Boone and I so well during that time.

Geoff – thank you for being such an involved, loving, consistent daddy.  Boone and I are so grateful for you and love you incredibly.  Always will.
Happy Father’s Day!
