Dear Dads,

Thank you for all you do for your children. Whether you're a work-outside-the-home dad, a stay-at-home dad, a single dad, or a married dad, you are without a doubt the most important man in your child's life. Your kids look up to you — and everything you do for them helps mold them into the adults they will become.  

So thank you for holding down the fort at the office, and for building forts in the living room. Thank you for tummy tickles and water gun fights and reading and wrestling. Thank you for cooking and cleaning and sometimes helping them make the mess. Thank you for drying tears and banishing monsters. Thank you for piggy back rides. And thank you for being you.

To celebrate your big day, here's a little gift for you: It's Jimmy Fallon and his special guest, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, as they present "The Evolution of Dad Dancing."  Hope it gives you a chuckle!

Happy Father's Day, Dads!
