Why I Married My Husband | Mom Minute

Since Father’s Day is tomorrow, I decided to share a few of the reasons why I married my hubsband 16 years ago.Why I Married My Husband | Father's Day

This came as a question from Dominique, one of our viewers, asking, “What does your husband do that makes him a great father?

Father's Day

Being a parent of six children is not easy, and I could never do it without my better half… my husband, Shaun.

Sure, how could you not love a guy who is willing to endure years of helping me with hairstyles, filming/editing our videos, and helping raise six children {five of them girls}? Yet, I could tell early on, even as we were dating, that Shaun looked forward to having children. We would talk about it all the time. Back then, in family settings, I would often sit back and observe him interact with his nieces and nephews, and even my own. It always brought a smile to my face!

Sixteen years later, those feelings are a million times stronger as I watch him interact with our six beautiful children.

He recognizes when I am having a long day, especially near bedtime, and quietly takes the littles upstairs, brushes their teeth, plays daddy games with them, reads them a story, prays with them, snuggles with them, and then tucks them in. It is at least a one hour process, and probably his most cherished hour of every day.
