Around these parts, dad is the tickle monster, the one that swings them up-a-side down and the one who shares his love of music. He wipes noses and bottoms. He holds hands and hair. There’s nothing I love more than seeing my children snuggled up with their dad. My most precious gifts in life wrapped up in each other. Happy Belated Fathers’ Day to the father of my baby girls.
