I’ve got tons of friends that are doing the right thing by their kids and doing the right thing as a father.
”How come that’s not as noteworthy?””

When he is in school, I do my meetings, my sketches, and everything else.
I cook him breakfast. Bring him to school. Pick him up.
Prepare his lunch. I spend the afternoon with him.
I do it myself.

even if it’s just the two of you, being quiet in the car together.
