Father’s day is coming up quick and as a mother I’ll be the first to say that these guys don’t get the credit they deserve. I just love this quote here;

My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.

Clarence Budington Kelland

Dad’s live life out loud. It’s not actually the easiest thing to do, to live and to live well, as good examples for our children. I think that’s the good thing about letting our kids watch us live. They get to see the ups, the downs and all the screw ups in between. This is life after all. So we might as well let our kids into the mess of it. If we mess up, we fess up. What better example could we be for our kids. I feel like fathers are particularly well versed in living a life out loud. They are good at not putting on a show and pretending they have it all together when they are with their family.

Dad’s love to play. They haven’t lost as much of that inner child in them, which is awesome and amazing and I wish I could tap into that place in my soul a little more.

Dad’s are driven to provide. There seems to be an innate desire to make sure the family has what they need.

Dad’s are strong.

Dad’s are love.

Dads are.
