I’m lucky enough to have two Dads, my dad dad and my stepdad. Obviously my dad dad has been in my life my whole life, duh, but my step dad has been in it 12 years and we love him. He’s just a member of the family, he is no different to my dad dad.
My dad and my stepdad are very different, I feel like the parent where my dad is concerned, well sometimes anyway, but with my stepdad I still feel like the child. I don’t know if it has something to do with my mum being there or what, but it’s nice.
Both my dad and my stepdad would literally do anything for their children, me and little sister, and we would do anything for them.
I would say my stepdad is more thoughtful than my dad, all presents are very well thought out and he gets my mum birthday, Christmas and mums day cards from their dog, I know cute (barf).
My dad doesn’t really do thinking, but he would do anything for his kids, like I said different.
Mum and stepdad are perfect for each other to, in their late 60’s their really soppy and just, well, get on. They just accept each other for who they are, that’s something I don’t know if my mum and dad ever did.
Mum and dad got divorced when I was 24, and you’d think as an ‘adult’ you’d be better at coping, nope, not at all. You somehow think that because they’ve been together for nearly 30 years they’ll just stay together no matter how unhappy, again nope. But after they split and met new partners, they are so much better.
I’m not saying that they are different people, or that they’ve changed, they are just themselves, and happy being themselves.
So to all the dads, stepdads, dads in law, grandad, great grandads and dad type figures, no matter who they are, Happy Fathers Day xx
To my dad and stepdad, we love you xx
