My husband was just away for 8 days in Winnipeg. I knew that we would miss him. But I also knew I could handle it. If nothing else, I know how to get sh*% (shtuff) done. As laissez-faire as my friends might think of me, momming and running my own business have taught me how to multi-task like a pro. And I did it all. I got it all done. We got to school on time. After drop-off, I managed to get from Kitchener to Toronto and back again each day in time for pick-up. I didn't miss a single soccer practice. The laundry was folded, the house was clean(ish), they practiced their piano. We even managed to not run out of groceries.  I was exhausted all. the. time. but it all got done. 

But here's the thing: we didn't quite get it all done. Because it's not all about checking off lists and showing up. It's the other stuff my husband does every day that makes his absence felt every time he goes away. It's the jokes and the laughing and the fun. It's the time he takes with our kids to talk about their deep thoughts at bedtime and recount their dreams at breakfast.  It's the way he knows how to let things go and sometimes be late and be toootally okay with it. Oh, and it's also the getting up early because he knows I'm not a morning person and taking out the garbage (we like to keep some things tradish) and the help with literally everything else  around the house that I miss a lot, too. Dads are good like that. 

With Father's Day around the corner, it's time to thank the amazing dads in our lives. From sporty to stylish, from baller to boss, we've got your dad covered this Father's Day...

While moms have to juggle jobs, homes and kids, the dads of today are in a similar boat. Not only do they have to keep their careers but over the years, dads have had to learn some skills that aren't really part of their manly DNA. Case in point: the ponytail. Ever watched a dad try to figure that one out? The poor guy usually ends up with a slingshot elastic to the cornea and your 4 year-old walks out the door as Cousin Itt. Men might not fold laundry as neatly or kiss a bruised knee quite as tenderly as moms but here's the thing - dads usually have way more fun doing it.  Bedsheets from the dryer become spooky ghosts in a haunted mansion and the simple act of putting a bandaid on a tiny cut turns into a full throttle imaginary ER, helicopters whirring and ambulances speeding in to save the day. Because when it comes right down to it, most dads, no matter the age, are just little kids trapped in big bodies. This Father's Day don't fight it - spoil him with toys for the gym, house or great outdoors, and indulge his fun-loving inner kid.
