A few weeks ago, my 5-year-old son dumped his entire toy box out onto the floor of his room. Sam was trying to find something. It wasn’t the first time this happened nor was it the first time I told him to put it all back. But the ensuing attitude and tears of misery finally pushed me to say, “Enough is enough.”

Here’s to all the dads out there who let their independent-minded toddlers climb into the car on their own, even though you’re already 10 minutes late. Who gladly clean up puke when their child throws up at 2 a.m. Who are the first to volunteer to get up with the kids in the morning and let mom sleep. Who go the extra mile to make Mickey Mouse pancakes.
