Fathers Day / March 5, 2019 / Cindy Navarro.
Everyone makes a mountain out of Mothers Day and rightly so. But without Dads lets face it we wouldnt exist. Fathers Day falls on 19th June this year so how about using this day to tell your Dad what a man he is? Fathers Day gifts are all part of the equation but year in year out you may make excuses about what you "meant" to get your Dad. But something always gets in the way and suddenly its Fathers Day and you have nothing... not even an excuse. Well NOT THIS YEAR! At least this time you can give your Dad something hell remember. Forever. But first heres some advice on what NOT to get him.
School teachers neighbours the fathers of friends all have the potential to affect the way in which we develop and grow and influence our life choices. Our biological father is for many of us the most important man in our life but in some cases he may be cynically regarded as a sperm donor and nothing more. There may be other far more significant loving caring and influential male role models in our lives. A real father provides his family with a feeling of safety and security. He usually earns money with which to support the family but is also increasingly involved with childcare and parenting duties.
The last thing Dad wants to do on Fathers Day is put something together such as a bike or shed. Unless he wants his joints and muscles to erode even more... Bad cooking. Many Dads have to face unusual and unfamiliar foods concocted in the name of love by their kiddies. Though the hearts in the right place it wouldnt do to make Dad sick on Fathers Day. So just stick to the breakfast-in-bed routine (if you really can cook that is!). Now for the spiel on what TO buy Dad for Fathers Day. If youre after unique Fathers Day gifts listen up because heres something that might be right up his street. [Drum roll]... Fathers Day gift experiences.
I think he thought wed "break." But Dad would do the quiet things with us like telling stories about far away places where we could raise giant cabbages hunt for gold or drill for oil. His stories were exciting and sometimes very funny - at least to his four daughters. Wed fall to sleep at night thinking about going on adventures with Dad. We never knew what to buy for Dad on Fathers Day. Of course wed ask but his answer was always the same. "I have everything a Father could want including all the ties I can ever use." Ties were "out." What was left? Then we caught on to what Dad really liked not just on Fathers Day but on days whenever he needed something on wanted something.
Its precisely why its up to you to give your husband a good fathers day when your kids are too young to acknowledge him for his role as a father in any way other than just by throwing up. A lot of men give their wives a gift flowers and candy the very least on mothers day so women should really be returning the affection. Here a few simple things you can do to make fathers day special for your husband. Give your husband the day off Fathers day may be on a Sunday but that doesnt mean that your husband wont have anything to do or that hell be work free. Just like you have a ton of stuff to do on the weekdays your husband also has lots of chores to do around the house and most of it is back breaking work like mowing the lawn. You cant take over the chore yourself and postponing it doesnt make the work go away so hire someone to mow the lawn for a change and give your husband a break.
