Dustin doesn't get a lot of air time on my blog. Usually what comes to mind is something having to do with Reese. And she is a star, but today she has to take the back seat to her daddy.
Dustin has a million hobbies, really expensive hobbies. Golf for one. He could spend more on 1 day of golf then I spend in an entire month at the Gap. Okay, maybe Old Navy, but you get the point. He loves to play with my step dad and his friends and the driving range got him through many a boring summer day. Hunting is another. It seems cheap, sit in a tree and wait for a deer. But when you price scent-locked boots, spray and clothes, not to mention cold-gear, and the guns and bows. Well let's just say he could feed an army with that! But he loves it and a lot of it is a one-time expense spread out over several years of accumulation. And racing. Racing, racing, racing. Thank goodness we are over that a little. Those weekends of racing were frightening and drunken. That's all I have to say about that.
He is also a really good friend. And he has a lot of them. A lot of them that he likes to talk to on the phone. Yep, you heard it here folks, Dustin loves to talk on the phone too. But that's beside the point. The point is he is a good friend. He enjoys spending time with them and I know he misses them when we are in the city. I know this because he is ready to jump ship as soon as we get home so he can see what Keith is up to. Or Casey, or Clinton, or Stevie, or well, you get the point.
But most of all he is a good husband and a good father. He loves his baby girl so much it hurts to breathe sometimes. She has him completely wrapped around his finger. And maybe so do I a little bit. He would do anything for us.
I write this tonight because I know he is not having the best week ever. He would rather be home and things seem to not go his way right now. He has 1 or 2 or 10 things on the back of his mind keeping him from sleeping well and I just wanted him to know that we were thinking of him.
Here's to our favorite Daddy ever! We are so excited to see you!
