With Father’s Day coming up, I wanted to share my daughter’s most loved activity that she does with her dad. My husband usually comes home late and Lil p waits for him , sometimes well past her bedtime.

Some of the most loved books have been the ones about dads. Here are some of our favorites in no particular order
