Happy First Father's Day!
I want to wish a very happy first Father's Day to Coach Brandon. Anyone who attends amp sessions regularly has no doubt that he's going to be a fantastic father. To me, the challenge of parenting is balancing fun with firm, knowing when to push and when to back off, and having the intuition to discriminate between each pair of conditions. I have no doubt Brandon will excel at this. When working with our athletes, Brandon's high energy and enthusiasm is balanced with compassion and kindness, and I can't see how that wouldn't translate to fatherhood as well. He texted me an early morning pic the other day of him and the babies that said, "the new dawn patrol." And while I'm bummed to have lost my 5am surf partner, I'm psyched that your early mornings have been replaced with time spent with your beautiful new additions. Happy Father's Day and welcome to the twin fraternity.
