Matt Lauer is talking about family. “Every night at 6:30, my entire family sits down for dinner together. It’s definitely the best part of my day,” he tells Good Housekeeping.
“I was one of these people, especially early in my career, who balanced the equation too much in favor of my job; I spent most of my life focusing on that. But becoming a dad gave me back perspective; it brought balance into my life. On a day-to-day level, I love watching my kids accomplish the little things that seem trivial but are really milestones: seeing my son hit a baseball, or watching my daughter draw something that actually looks like what she says she’s drawing. Or hearing them say ‘I love you.’ I’m a sucker for that stuff — I’m right up there with the cheesiest of dads.”
