But looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. All of these experiences have prepared me for my own life as a father. For me, I laugh when I think of when my dad was cutting down a tree with a chain saw. That happened, and it’s really funny, and I think the distance of telling it as a flashback lets us laugh.”
