8 ways to make Dad's day
Make his favorite breakfast and serve it up casually, like it’s no big deal that you’ve been cracking eggs all morning for one perf omelet. ‘Cause ya know what? He deserves it.
Ask him a Q. As girls grow up, they depend less on Dad for answers and more on Mom. So throw your old man a bone and ask him for some advice. He’ll be thrilled to hear that you really want his opinion.
Just hang out. You’re not a baseball person and he’s marathoning games? Suck it up and deal, ‘cause today’s his day. Whatever Dad wants to do, go along with it. He’ll love the QT.
Show off. No, not in a braggy way, but if you did really good on a final exam or you just painted a masterpiece, make him the first one you tell.
Text it. Not around your dad 24/7 today? That’s OK. Give him a call or send a text just to say hi.
Pull out the pics. Parents love remembering the good ol’ times—i.e. when you were doing embarrassing things in diapers. Grab the family photo albums and ask Dad to tell ya what happened when.
Noted. Jot a few quick notes or doodles on post-its and stick ‘em in random places where he’ll discover them today, tomorrow or next Tuesday. Sweet reminders that he’s totally tops are guaranteed to make him smile.
Tell him ya love him. Go ahead, get mushy.
