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.
