The father of a daughter is nothing but a high-class hostage. A father turns a stony face to his sons, berates them, shakes his antlers, paws the ground, snorts, runs them off into the underbrush, but when his daughter puts her arms over his shoulders and says “daddy, I need to ask you something,” he is a pat of butter in a hot frying pan. – Garrison Keillor
shout out to all of you dads out there!
I did a post for the mom’s so of course I had to share one for the dad’s on their day too!
I took a poll from fathers of all ages on what they REALLY wanted for Father’s Day and here is what I got:
Mark (my husband) – father for 5 years.
What is your ideal Fathers Day gift?: “A weekend to myself. But also with the kids too, if that’s possible. If we could make Fathers Day, everyday.” (I get it babe)
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?: “The special feeling of just being a dad, having two babies that are a mix of me and you and I’m their dad” (heart melted.)
Trey – father for almost 6 years
What is your ideal Father’s Day gift: “A weekend of no responsibilities. To be able to go fishing all day but also hang with kids. Be able to just chill. No dadding, no grass cutting, or disciplining children. Home made card from kids or a Macaroni necklace.”
What’s your favorite thing about being a dad?: “Watching my kids light up when they get really excited about something.”
Steve – father for 26 years
What is your ideal Fathers Day gift: “The gift of peace and quiet, the least thing would be to have a bunch of people around and have to grill out for people. Just relaxation. A no responsibilities day (or two).”
What’s your favorite thing about being a dad?: “Being part of accomplishing my children’s goals and seeing their excitement.”
Justin – father for 7 years
What is your ideal Father’s Day gift?: “To take a family road trip through the Colorado Rockies” (I hear ya Justin!)
What is your favorite thing about being a father?: “Watching my kids grow and develop their own unique personalities.”
Brad – father for 27 years (my dad)
What is your ideal Father’s Day gift?: A family reunion and cookout with all you kids and grandkids and everyone in the family together, laughing and telling stories. Just a good ol’ fashion good time. (Crying. He is the best.)
What is your favorite thing about being a dad?: “My children and grandchildren are my favorite thing, you all are the greatest honor of my life.” (insert sobbing emoji face)
I mean dad’s are pretty awesome.
All of these answers sound pretty reasonable…right? They would do it for us…right? TOTALLY.
