I can believe it has been a year already when Rick, Lucy, and I launched this project.
It has been an interesting year and it also marks my second Father’s Day as a Dad. My daughter is about to turn 18 months and reality is that every day I enjoy the joys of parenting even more.
First of all I want to thank Lucy who has taken most of the weight of updating and maintaining the site. Rick does an awesome job to create a piece of art while sharing his experiences as a Dad with the Daddyknows comic strip.
Over the past 12 months we have shared many things we felt might be of interest to you and the rest of our readers. From sharing my advice on how carrots can help with teething to helping you understand a bit more how to recently sharing on how I feel as a new dad every time I reach a Milestone.
Instead making this one of my longer posts I really want to make it very clear that I want to thank you for supporting this effort.
The Definition of a Father
Last year I wrote bout My Papaheroes as my first post. I still feel the same way about my two uncles and dad so I rather share with you guys what being a father means to these three brave gentlemen that shared their thoughts via audio or on text.

SUMNER MUSOLF’S QUOTE
My father molded me into the man that I’ve become. As such, I am continuously conscious of the essential role I play in the future of my children, even long after I leave them.
There are few greater gifts in my life than the unconditional love my father gave me, and in turn, the evolutionary, unconquerable love I provide to them._~Sumner Musolf

“Being a dad is being an equipment manager. You work behind the scenes to make sure everything runs smoothly for your kids. Doing the dirty work and not looking for glory. The glory belongs to your kids.” ~Julio Ricardo Varela
