There is something simultaneously powerful and tender about seeing dads be dads. I’m not talking about the ones who just dutifully complete to-do lists or even the ones who put on a Pinterest-worthy show. I’m talking about the real deal. The everyday dad whose heart and actions are where his family is.

So, a shout out this Father’s Day to that dad.

The one who takes time out to teach the important skills, and the not-so-important ones.

The dad who gets outside his comfort zone and makes magic happen.

The one who slows down and takes life at the speed of a toddler, because he knows it’s better that way.

And to the one who teaches and listens and loves, at every stage of the game.
