“Chris has always been a wonderful, caring father. Entering the time of Covid, and it’s become a whole new meaning.
We welcomed our second daughter into the world in the middle of 2020, and he jumped at the chance to take FMLA to be home with our girls for a month while we worked out childcare logistics.
Fast forward a few months and we landed on the idea of one parent staying at home for a longer period of time. He stepped up and left his 9-5 job as an IT engineer to be home to take care of our children full time while I continue to work.
This seems so uncommon in our world today, and I’m just so proud of him. There was no hesitation on his side about what he wanted to do and what was right for our family.
I don’t give him enough credit – for practicing counting and the alphabet daily with our 2.5 year old, for coming up with silly games to play, for tying ponytails, and for embracing matching pajamas.
He truly is an incredible dad.”
