You know he’s affectionate, and your kids want to spend more time with him than you. He dotes on them and spoils them (almost rotten), and yes, he’s a good husband. But still, here’re simple ways that you can gauge your husband’s awesome dad-ness!!
1. He talks and listens to them
Any adult can sit, pretend to listen, and nod his head along to whatever a child says. But a good father will get into the conversation and have an actual conversation with them.
2. They have inside jokes
Your husband and child are always cracking jokes that seem to make your child ROFL, but this banter completely goes over your head!
3. He answers their every question
Children are very curious beings. They ask a million questions, which some adults find too bothersome. But, your husband always gracefully answers them.
4. He is always taking pictures of them
Your kid did something cute, and you don’t want to bore your followers by posting it on social media. That’s perfectly all right. But your husband might have an entirely different perspective. If it’s cute, he makes sure that everyone knows it
5. He reads to them
Your husband always reads bedtime stories to them—not just once, but as many times as the kids want.
6. He lets their imagination grow
When your kids come up with wild stories, he doesn’t just listen to them. He joins in and feels happy when he sees them smiling.
7. He knows the names of all their friends
He might know more about your child’s friends and their secrets than you do!
8. He’s always there for them
Even if it’s 3 in the morning and your child comes running into your room due to a nightmare, he’s there for him.
9. He gets down on his knees to play with them.
Playing with the kids is his favorite pastime, and he’s never afraid to get down on all fours to become the horsey (no matter how tired he is).
