The 3 things you love about being a father;

1. Being able to watch your children grow and develop into their own personalities

2. It gives you the privilege of being able to see the world again through a child’s eyes. Kids teach us to see the beauty in little day to day things that often we forgot to notice in our busy lives

3. I also love being able to share things that I love with my children. I get more joy out of seeing them catch a great wave or make it to the top of a mountain hike than I would if I was doing it myself
