Daddy is sexy!

Yesterday, out of the mouths of my little girl came the words:

Daddy is sexy!

Wow. This is going to be an embarrassing post for her father/my husband. (Psst: I just confirmed it with him, he doesn't even read my posts!)

Her statement couldn't be more true. Even though this blog focuses on what it's like to be a hard of hearing mommy, I couldn't be a hard of hearing mommy without the hard of hearing daddy. Truly, the family is where it all starts.  Regardless if you are hard of hearing or facing some other extraordinary circumstance. Having a hearing loss means that we actually understand each other better without having to say anything about it.

Last week the World Meeting of Families Congress took place in Philadelphia, PA, which is "held every three years and sponsored by the Holy See's Pontifical Council for the Family" (Source: World Meeting of Families). The theme for this event, one of the world's largest Catholic gathering of families was titled Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive.  I am fortunate for the love that flows through our family, which began with the two of us in marriage.

The saying "Daddy is sexy" in my daughter's eyes refers to a man who tries his best to be there for us, who makes us laugh, and always comes home from work to spend time with us. Sexiness isn't about being physically hot (although, daddy's recent weight loss has led to workplace catcalls from fellow coworkers!), it's about being the best person you can be, and achieving happiness at the same time.

Sexiness at its max!

I can list a few other men who I know are sexy in this capacity (and please, spare me the jokes/puns... I can hear you already!). They are family members and friends who have my back. They work hard, they provide their family with love, laughter, a strong shoulder to lean on and the importance of family. Most of all, they remind me that the very essence of life wouldn't be possible without them. We are so fortunate to have Daddy who has seen us through the pees, poos, the thick and thin.

In other words, I wouldn't have learned how to change a diaper if it were not for my husband!
