Best Dads

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads in my life!

My Dad – still known to my sister and I as “Daddy” – is awfully far away now. I miss you! Thank you for teaching me when to think and be patient, to embrace my independence, and most importantly, how to be silly. I remember every single day growing up with the most wonderful, thoughtful, fun father in the world, and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without you. I love you!

To B, thank you for being the best dad to our kids. You are the perfect complement to my parenting – calm when I’m too frantic, silly when I’m too serious, and you’re always willing to step in every time I whine about not wanting to handle something. The kids love you more than is possible, and because of that, so do I.

And to all you other dads out there – have a good day! You should go see ‘Man of Steel’ because it’s awesome.
