6 Things Dads Don’t Get Enough Credit For

dad and child

A little humor about what makes Dads special.

1. Teaching kids to think on the fly: When we forget to pack snacks, we take the kids to Whole Foods Market for the Kid’s Club and free samples.

2. Teaching kids about history: When you’re not around, we show the kids how to drink from the garden hose like we did when we were little.

-

3. Teaching kids ingenuity: When we take the kids away for the weekend and accidentally pack the wrong size clothing, we show kids we to use scissors to turn 3T pants into shorts for a six-year-old.

-

4. Teaching kids about the value of money: When we take the kids out to dinner but forget our wallet and must borrow from neighbors to pay for dinner, they learn that money is hard to come by.

-

5. Teaching kids “it’s what inside that matters”: We do this by completely disregarding fashion. Case in point: Dad jeans.

-

6. Teaching kids that they mean the world to us: We do this all the time in the way we worry about them, in the way we light up when they get home, and in the way we hug them every day.
