The Wildenberg Family had an additional dad to celebrate this past Father’s Day! Our son Jake just became a dad. It is so awesome to watch him care for his little guy and to see the mutual love and support between he and his wife, Jaime.
Jake has such a good role model in his dad. Jake will do some things the same and others differently, just like Tom and I did with the example from our families of origin. He and Jaime will figure out this parent thing together. and find what fits their family best. (They are doing an amazing job already!)
One of the coolest things is seeing your husband in his role as a father. Nothing grows BIG love faster than that!
Anyway…in honor of Father’s Day I got brave and decided to interview a dad of four regarding his thoughts, reflections, and advice regarding fatherhood.
This dad is my husband of thirty-five yep- thirty-five years!
