20 Things Dad Taught Me About Life and Love

With Father’s Day coming up it’s nice to think about what we really appreciate about our dads. When it comes to confusing analogies, repetitive knock knock jokes, and embarrassing moment makers, dads usually go under-appreciated. 🙂 But seriously, the reality is our dads teach us so much that they never get credit for.  And they are such amazing teachers because they usually help us learn important lessons through play and FUN! So this list is our way of saying “thank you Dads”, for teaching us what was important before we ever stepped foot in a classroom!

1. The right kind of hug from the right person really can make everything better
