We all know that moms are basically superheroes, right? But one dad really summed it up in a totally amazing open letter to his son.
Having babies is one of life's purest joys.There's nothing that quite compares to the love you feel for your children.
But that isn't to say it's easy.Any parent will tell you it's one of the hardest experiences out there.
It helps if you're part of a team.Being able to share the trials and tribulations of parenthood can take some of the pressure off.
It's nice to feel supported.And one dad went above and beyond this week when showing the mother of his child how grateful he is.
This is William Battle and his wife, Lauren.
