A Daddy smiles in the face of adversity. Even though he hasn't put on his running shoes in years, let alone run 800m. Even though he will pant and run after you like a bumbling elephant past herds of children. Because you ask him to.
A Daddy does not always know the best or the right way to do things. In fact, his way is downright embarrassing sometimes. But he is always there to figure it out together with you. Because you expect him to.
A Daddy makes the difficult look so easy. He may be in pain or just plain wilting in the heat, but he will put on a facial expression that makes him looks like the coolest and meanest cowboy on this planet. Because you inspire him to.
A Daddy gives you a little push, picks you up when you are down and carries you up on his shoulders - despite his aching back. He is always there for you. Because you need him to.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there who get the job done, grit their teeth and wait till the kids are asleep to apply the Deep Heat cream.
You guys are awesome!
