In honour of Father's Day this weekend, we asked Emily Grizzell, RWB Soloist to say a few words on how her husband Amar Dhaliwal, RWB Second Soloist is a great father to their young daughter Lucie.
Living in Winnipeg, away from our families, we are pretty isolated. I am so grateful for how well Amar, Lucie and I function as a little family unit. Many mornings we are woken up by a little voice "Daddy, where are you?" Amar answers, "Lucie, where are you?" He takes her downstairs and sets her on the kitchen counter while he makes his tea so she can be right in the middle of the action.
Whenever we hit a stumbling block with our parenting we just look at each other and ask ourselves, what do we do now? We talk through it, weighing the options and make the choice thats best for all three of us. We have been lucky to find people in our lives who we can really count on now to help us with her care, but everything still originates from our little unit.
