Happy Fathers’ Day!
For a while now the boys and I have been working on their little surprises they want to have ready for daddy. I try hard to have them put some thought into their gifts but make it fun too because their daddy is a fun-loving guy. He usually ends up with some pretty interesting things!
Having a list of questions to ask kids about dad at any speaking age is fun to see what they come up with. Of course, I live in a house of all males so you can only assume some of the answers on a Fathers’ Day questionnaire are going to be filled with potty humor. Apparently it never gets old to them, imagine that!
*Since I know he will be reading this… I can’t give away his surprises since he is working today. Thank you to my husband, who is a wonderful father to our three handsome loving sons, Happy Fathers’ Day – we love you and appreciate all that you do for us!*
I would like to acknowledge all those hardworking dads out there. Even when you come home exhausted from a long day at work, you still muster enough energy to play with the kids. Thank you dads for being so thoughtful to ask the kids about their day because you truly wanted to know what you missed while you were gone. You are making memories with the kids each time sit down to talk or play. You are showing them love with hugs, it will leave an everlasting impression.
My boys are all mommas boys of course (for now at least), but they adore their daddy too. When he is home they follow him in hopes to get a chance to help him do something- anything amazingly great with DAD! From fixing a broken toy to grilling hotdogs on the grill or mowing the lawn, Dad rocks! Dad is even a superhero at our house when he brings home a rental car, might seem a bit sad I know.. but these wonderful kids remind us to get excited over the little things!
How about those dads who are stay at home dads? Holy cow, you ROCK! I offered to switch places with my husband, so he could stay at home, raise our barely 2 yr old son (before we had 3 boys!) and I would go back to work full-time. He said he was pretty sure he was not going to be able to do the Stay at home daddy thing. I love staying home with my boys, still do and I bet Stay at home dads do to! It’s the most challenging, yet rewarding job ever!
Dads you guys are amazing. Thank you for being at home with your little ones. Handling the cleaning, cooking, diaper changing, snotty noses, book reading, temper tantrum throwing, playground groups … oh so much more.
Dad’s providing LOVE to their children, GUIDANCE when needed, being PROUD of their children for accomplishments and COMFORT if you fall.
Happy Fathers’ Day!
