I LOVE BEING A DAD MY KIDS, MY HEART
Ever since Finn was born four years ago, I’ve had the pleasure of being able to celebrate Father’s Day as a dad, and it’s great. I love being a dad so much. In the same way Nicole did, little Finn and Harlow have opened my eyes to a different part of the world. With them, I have reached of place of love in my heart that I didn’t even know was there. I didn’t know I could love someone so much until my children came into my life. Don’t get me wrong: being a parent is simultaneously the best and most

At the end of every day, after we’ve put the kids to bed, Nicole and I just look at each other like, “What just happened?” Finn and Harlow are still so little, and it can be difficult to see the world through their eyes and deal with all the heightened emotions. But it’s always amazing. I wouldn’t understand everything I know about life if it weren’t for Nicole and these little lunatics. It’s crazy at times, but they’re so pure and beautiful. Finn and Harlow are learning and growing so much every day. To them, everything is so new and exciting, and it’s fun to be showing them more and more about the world. I love getting my kids out of bed in the morning. Nicole and I say they come out hot. They wake up energized, and from the moment they open their eyes, Finn and Harlow are immediately telling stories and ready to party. It makes the mornings super fun, though I imagine things will be a little different when they’re teenagers! That future seems so far away, but my kids are growing fast, and the future will be here before I know it. As a dad, one of the most important things I can do for my kids is instill in them the strength to be who they are. That can be challenging as a parent, because you have to be careful not to impose on them your own ideas of what your kids should be like. But Nicole and I work really hard
of themselves may be, I know I’m going to love them. There’s something really special about being a dad. It’s a big challenge and a complicated, messy job, but it’s also really simple. They’re my kids, and my world isn’t complete without them.
