Thanks for the LR, @jenna! I've made it pretty clear here that I'm #TeamAdam, but thinking through the others is fun (and admittedly a few years removed from watching). Parenting is subjective, but I did my ranking based on these categories (from 1-5): Responsibility ๐Ÿ“š, Example ๐Ÿ‘€, and Fun ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

    Just an all-around #DadGoals example; the way he counsels his kids (while trying not to judge), handles his sons special needs and oldest daughters decisions, having a new baby late in life, supports his wife, and is mega-responsible. Even his attempts at fun, while goofy, are endearing. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    She's allowed to have a late-life crisis after raising this brood and dealing with Zeke. Pretty good batting average considering. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    Took on single parenthood and raised a great kid before Crosby (re) entered. Chased her dreams but did the responsible thing(s) when needed. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    A little too relaxed for today's parenting world (he's all of our dads TBH), but responsible and provided and has a dash of fun too. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    Responsible, but lost points for launching a political career amidst a new baby and cancer. Good example for kids to aspire to be, 0 fun.๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€

    Runner-up in the fun department, I have a soft spot for her inability to get her sh*t together but not great in Responsibility and a pretty bad Example. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    Barely registers on the Responsibility and Example scales, but the funnest parent by far. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

    I guess he's a good Example and Responsible, but I'm still annoyed at how he drug out the insane cheating plot line and enables Julia. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€

    What a Type-A train wreck. Trying to do too much, overcompensating, and responsible for Sydney ๐Ÿคข. ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘€
