My Dad Rocks!

A short Happy Father's Day shout out to my dad. I'm the luckiest daughter in the world because my dad has always been full of love and support. Quick story - when I was a junior in high school deciding what I wanted to study in college I had a talk with my dad in the car. He asked me what I thought I wanted to do. I answered that although I loved being on stage, it didn't seem like a very practical choice. Maybe I should do go be a teacher or a doctor. And he said to me, "Why? If that's where your heart is then you have to go for it." Cut to six Broadway shows and a couple TV appearances later, and boy am I grateful that my dad believed in me even when I didn't.
Thanks Dad!!! I love you!!!

I'd also like to say Happy Father's Day to my Pap, Danny and Jim. And to my Grandpa Wyatt who was the epitome of class. And to my friends who are amazing dads to Samson Jack - Eric and David.

I mean, come on. When you dress your kid up for Halloween as a Jawa and you go as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, you are sooooo destined for the Fatherhood Hall of Fame.

I leave you with this awesome article about fathers that was in today's NY Times by Nicholas Kristof. Check it out if you want to have a good cry.

Happy Father's Day!!!!!


  1. What a great pic of your mom and dad. I love hearing about how supportive Mr. Wyatt has been to you as a daughter. He was the same to us as his band students when we started to wonder if we would ever be able to play our instruments right. You so blessed to have him as a dad :)
