Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers in the world. I commend all the fathers who are doing the right thing for their families and being the role model they need to be for their children.

I had my first child when I was just 23 years old and in just two weeks, he turns 9 years old. While my husband skills could use some oil to get the kinks out, my father skills are on point. I really embrace the father role and it’s something I’m good at. I try to relate to my kids in the same ways that my dad related to me, which was through different activities. I’ll throw the ball around with them, but I’ll also color with them, play video games with them, write with them, and do whatever they want to do. I make sure that I help out in their class, coach their teams, and just let them know that no matter what they choose to do, I’ll be there.

One of my favorite daddy songs is Will Smith’s take on the old Bill Withers and Grover Washington Jr. track, Just The Two Of Us. Let’s all celebrate the dads today.
