I can’t say that to my own dad any more; brain cancer took him a few years ago. I often wish he were still here, so I could ask his advise, so he could see his grandkids’ accomplishments, etc.

I can say it to my father-in-law, however, and I did! along with my husband, who is a fabulous father. I am so proud and pleased what a great dad he has been, in fact. He is sensitive, loves to talk with them as adults, loves to be silly and act like he’s “one of them”, and mostly loves to love them. He’s a world-class snuggler, will always go back to their rooms for a chat after a spat, and all 3 kids know that without question, their father loves them and will always be there for them.

What more could a dad be? Happy Father’s Day, honey!
