I wanted to take a moment to thank all those working dads out there.
You know who you are.
- You go to work. You do your job. You don’t ask for a thank you note in return.
- You’re willing to forgo your dreams of playing [insert random sport here] for the sake of your kids.
- You pay the mortgage and save for your children’s education in lieu of fancy vacations and expensive cars.
I know how hard you work. You travel to conferences. You sleep in strange cities across the country. Although it pains you greatly, you spend time away from your supportive wife and super-cute kids. You do this because you have a sense of responsibility, you love your family, and you are invested in something greater than yourself.
That’s pretty awesome.
Enjoy your special day.
