As Father’s Day approaches, the Samuel Windsor blog team is celebrating the important role of dads. It may have its ups and downs, but being a father can be one of the most fun and rewarding things you ever experience. We asked some of our favorite bloggers to tell us why they think being a dad is the best job ever. Here’s what they said…

“Having my kids reach out for my hand when we are on a walk is the best feeling.”
Alan Lawrence – That Dad Blog

Being a father is an opportunity – a golden, juicy, can’t-miss opportunity – to be completely, utterly, unashamedly, proudly RIDICULOUS.
Brant Hansen – BrantHansen.com

“Seeing my boys (aged 5, 12 and 18) smile, grow, learn, love and help others makes me realize each and every day how truly blessed my wife and I are to be their parents.”
Matt – Real Food By Dad

“There’s nothing better than hearing a giggle when I lift one of my daughters over my head.”
Andy Shaw – Instafather

“Watching my kids learn about the world. Their wonder is enthralling and hilarious. I’ll never forget taking my oldest, Kenzie, to the zoo when she was about two and a half. We came up to the hippo enclosure, I asked her what animal it was, she turned to me in amazement and said, ‘Daddy, it’s a dinosaur’!”
Paul – FatherCraft

“Halloween and Christmas! – they’re boring without kids!”

“Watching my son grow from a baby to a big brother who reads to his sisters.”
Andy Shaw – Instafather

“Seeing my kid’s faces light up when I walk in the door after a bad day at work is better than any therapy session.”
Alan Lawrence – That Dad Blog

“Now, I am a Tolkien fan to the deepest core of my nerdy being, so to have the chance to live in the fantasy realm with those who seem fully convinced that it exists, is like walking with Frodo right up to Mt. Doom!”
Jared Zimmerer – Word On Fire

“Now that my son is a little older, there’s nothing better than being able to play with toys with him and watching him play back. Except when he plays with my OG power ranger toys, then I cringe a little when he throws them around. But, that’s what I get for letting him have them already!
Derek – Dad with a Pan

“It’s absolutely wonderful to help them explore life, and to share things that will help them develop as a person.”
Nicholas – Quintessential Gent

“It can be hard with the day to day struggles of life to remember to stop and relax and have fun. Kids are great at reminding adults why it’s so important to stop and take time to enjoy the little things.”
Jackie Bledsoe – All Pro Dad

“Being a dad is so rewarding because it teaches you selfless sacrifice. As you try to raise strong and healthy children of high character, you learn the value of putting others before you and the growth that comes from feeling the weight of a living person being so completely and totally dependent on you — not just in terms of physical provision, but emotionally, mentally, and spiritually as well.”
Michael – Fit Dad Fitness

“I love the way their eyes light up and their laughs come from the most genuine place when we play.”
All Pro Dad

“I’ve never been a morning person, and although that still holds true, nothing puts me in a good mood quicker than hanging out with my son… Even if he wakes me up two hours before I’m ready by screaming my name or climbing on top of me begging for breakfast. It’s just not possible to stay angry at someone so goddamn cute.”
Mike Julianelle – Dad and Buried

“There’s no better feeling than supporting [my son] pitch-side during a soccer match and feeling proud no matter how well he plays. Whether the sun’s out or it’s pouring with rain, it’s always a pleasure to be there.”
Charles-Philippe Bowles – Bespoke Unit

“Being a dad is the best job in the world because nothing else you do will have as much impact.”
Andy Shaw – Instafather
