I knew something was up around the Leman household…but I didn’t know what was up. Later I find out that Mrs. Uppington was being very sneaky and planning a surprise party! My first clue was when I woke up and my daughter Hannah and her husband Josh were on the patio in the morning drinking coffee — I was shocked! And I was hoping the other kids weren’t far behind…

And they weren’t! Kevin and Lauren flew in from California the next day along with other friends and family! The party was so great it made me want to be 70 all over again (and I thought that was impossible!) The best part was listening to all my kids and grandchildren talk about our relationship and what counted most in life to them.

To top it off my sweet wife bought me a 1950 Deluxe Ford – Little did she know that was my FIRST car. I paid 200 dollars for it. I think she paid a little more… She completely surprised me.

It was one of the those benchmarks in life that you don’t forget! Everyday since I keep thinking about how wonderful that evening was. How much love was in the that room.

It is a privilege to be a Dad and a husband, those are two things I certainly cut out to be!

Here are a few photos from our evening that my daughter Hannah took! Keep scrolling to get to the GIVEAWAY!

    All done step 1, posted and linked. I’m exhausted and broke, I am single parent of 2 powerful children!! I so badly want to do right by them but find myself struggling daily just to love them through their stubborness! I myself am not powerful and find I’m fighting a losing battle with my son. He’s 9 and VERY very stubborn, never gives up, always wants and needs more than I can give, I tell him to just stop talking and find him muttering under his breath.., and my daughter is pretty much house bound because her world crumbles anytime she comes up against any type of authority…she’s not 2 yet :( It’s unbearable to have her shopping or even at the park, when it’s time to leave 3 cities can hear her protests! At home though she’s very good unless I’m asking her to do something she doesn’t want to do. It’s awesome when they’re both sleeping though,they’re so peaceful, it’s the only time I truly appreciate them!! Please help me Dr. Leman!! I fear my sanity hangs in the balance, I so much want to make productive citizens out of them but am thinking maybe I’m not the right parent for them!
