"[It gives you] perspective on what it takes to actually show up for another person," he says. "To be a present and engaged parent requires focus and commitment to time and an effort that … it's a lot. But the rewards are unlike anything I've experienced before."
He adds, "What was new to me was the amount of effort required to show up for a little human. It's been the most rewarding thing I've experienced to date."
