Of all the different roles that come with being a parent, I think my dad enjoyed the teaching responsibilities the best. It didn’t matter if the task at hand was eating an ice cream cone or how to build a drip-style sand castle, he was ready to show me a good way to approach it. I feel so fortunate to have grown up with someone who was so willing to share what he knew (and would also readily admit it if he didn’t know). He helped shape the way I see the world and for that I feel immensely lucky.
Happy Father’s Day, daddy!
