The boys rely on Alexi to love and calm them now, just as they did as infants. Recently I've watched as the boys have learned to play hockey - a sport Alexi loves and knows so much about. The 'coaching' he does comes in the form of patience, as he takes them skating again and again and again, and reminds them that it's about having fun, not about the competition..and I know he absolutely believes it.
Watching him become a Father has been the greatest inspiration to me in being the Mother that I want to be.
Happy Father's Day, Alexi! Thank you for all that you do; it means the world to us. And I wish all of you Fathers out there a very special Father's Day weekend full of love.
