Craig Melvin admits he did this on his son's first day of kindergarten
The TODAYShow co-anchor shared a story on the show that proves he's one relatable dad.
 
The very first day of school can be scary for a kindergartener — but that's nothing compared to how scary it can be for the parent of a kindergartener.
 
TODAY's own Craig Melvin illustrated that latter point perfectly when he shared what it was like to send his son, Delano, off to school Tuesday.
 
As it turned out, the 5-year-old was pretty fearless when it came to his new adventure.
 
"He had a blast," Del's proud pop explained on the show Wednesday morning. "He loved it. Had a great first day."
 
Craig noted his little guy was even "very excited getting on that school bus." And that might have been all he had to say about it, if it weren't from some gentle prodding from fellow father Al Roker.
 
"Tell them what you did!" Al shouted from off-camera.
 
at sparked a somewhat reluctant response from Craig.
 
"I may have followed the school bus," the 40-year-old admitted. "Just to make sure he got there OK."
 
That sweet confession is likely one that many parents could make this time of year. After all, those big yellow buses set out with the most precious cargo of all.
 
Saying goodbye, even just for the school day, is tough stuff the first time, but it was a struggle Craig shared with wife Lindsay Czarniak, with whom he also has a 2-year-old daughter named Sybil.
 
When asked if he shed any tears on Tuesday, he said, "Maybe a few — mom and dad."
 
And if mom and dad want to get the waterworks flowing again, all they have to do is read the message Al left for them when Craig shared a pic from Delano's big day on Instagram.
 
"The best," Al wrote. "Before you know, dropping (him off) at college."
 
One milestone at a time, Al!
 
They grow up so fast.

How Barbershops fight high blood pressure among African-American men
How Barbershops fight high blood pressure among African-American men
Forty-five percent of African-American males suffer from hypertension
 
Forty-five percent of African-American males suffer from hypertension, yet many never seek medical care. Now a creative way is being used to help them – at their neighborhood barbershop. TODAYShow’s Craig Melvin reports.
 
High blood pressure worried Mark Sims, but the 43-year-old law firm clerk wasn’t eager to take part in an unusual project. He doesn’t like taking pills. And he had never thought of his favorite barbershop as a place to get medical treatment.
 
But Sims succumbed to the persuasive charms of barbershop owner Eric Muhammad and signed up for a trial to see if measuring and treating blood pressure in barbershops could help African-American men.
 
The experiment, reported in the New England Journal of Medicine and presented to a meeting of the American College of Cardiology, was a resounding success and provides strong evidence that taking medicine to the people — in the places they go regularly, with people they trust — can achieve remarkable results.

Craig Melvin tried to be a bartender for a day — he had an amazing time
Craig Melvin makes being a TODAY anchor look like an easy gig. But how would he fare in a totally different field?

The hosts of the 3rd hour of TODAY have gotten to flex their muscles in various careers recently. Al Roker fulfilled his lifelong dream of being a professional chef for a day. And Craig, who loves craft cocktails, got to see what it's like to be a bartender. To learn the tricks of the trade behind the bar, Craig spent a full day making cocktails with mixologists at some of New York City's top bars and restaurants.
 
First, Craig stirred up a classic old fashioned at Liquid Lab NYC. The drink was made with a sugar cube, bitters, and, of course, bourbon. Everything was going as smoothly as a nicely aged spirit ... until Craig had to light the orange rind on fire for the finishing touch.
 
"Whoa, buddy! Almost lost that finger," Craig shouted, as sparks flew off the citrus fruit.
 
All burns aside, he remained confident. "I think I could be a bartender," Craig proclaimed as he finished up the first libation.
 
Next up, the TODAY anchor headed to vintage Greenwich Village hotspot Caffe Dante to make a whiskey sour, which has bourbon, benedictine, lemon juice, vanilla honey syrup, bitters and a special addition of egg white. There, Craig discovered the secret to creating a smooth and frothy egg-white mixture, which sits atop the cocktail like meringue: It's all about shaking up the egg in its shell before cracking it.

"This is what I really learned," Craig said, shaking the shaker vigorously.

By the time Craig got to Diego at the Public Hotel to make a margarita, he was feeling more than ready to mix up this classic libation with tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime juice and simple syrup.
 
"I've been making drinks for while, like, for four hours," Craig said with a laugh.
 
As Craig slowly but surely mastered his new trade, little did he know he was in for a surprise that would put his newly acquired tricks to the test: his 3rd hour of TODAY hosts — and the show's entire production crew — were just outside the venue, ready to order some drinks.
 
"Craig's inside. He's learning how to bartend. He doesn't know that the worst customers possible are about to crash his lesson," Al Roker joked.
 
"Somebody order some pizza?" Al asked as he walked into Craig's bartending session with a tray of pizzas he swiped from a server. Co-hosts Sheinelle Jones and Dylan Dreyer swiftly followed.
 
Craig got to work fixing a round of margaritas for the crowd as they cheered him on.
 
"This is what I really learned today," Craig said, shaking the shaker vigorously.
 
"Are you supposed to be twerking?" Al asked his friend and colleague, who clearly knows how to throw a fun party.
 
Keep up the good twerk — sorry, work — Craig!
