Jon, always puts connection over perfection. He’s the kind of dad who listens intently, is always empathetic, and with an ever busy schedule will always make time to wrestle with the kids and tell dad stories (and event where he puts on a mini play with the kids for a bedtime story). Naturally the kids and I adore him.
I also had to say how grateful I am for my father – who showed me that I could make anything with my hands and create magic for my kids if I just put in the time and the love. He made us giant floor puzzles, many doll houses, a train table and much more. He’s just “figure it out” attitude has really influenced me a lot.
Happy day to all nurturing, kind, fun loving, good men who are great fathers.
