A Dad is without doubt one of the most wonderful and special people in the world! Fathers in their own unique way make our lives smarter, funnier, happier and truly magical. Some of the more enthusiastic and committed Dads take a really active role in fatherhood and keep it hands-on with their kids. From changing diapers, playing, giving a bath, teaching, reading and finally at the end of the day rocking children to sleep with a lullaby. Most importantly providing a shoulder to cry on, when needed. It’s Father’s Day this Sunday, which for many people means doing something special for their Dads, treating one of the most important men in their life to something of value. In our Feature Story we’ve melted our hearts and dampened our tear ducts with a round-up of the city’s eight coolest dads – with their children – all sharing their thoughts on the joys of fatherhood.
