My kids are blessed with a great dad who adores them, plays crazy games with them even after getting home from a long day of work, takes over and exhibits patience in situations when I'm just done, and is all around fantastic. He is greeted like a rock star whenever he comes home. And I'm so grateful that I'm married to him.
I'm glad my bloggy friend Jennifer told me what she was doing for her husband for Father's Day because it reminded me that I did this last year with the intention of doing it every year and almost forgot all about it! So I bribed the kids with chocolate chips, gave up the battle of getting D to take his socks off and got about 100 pictures of them together in the hopes of having 3 turn out. Then made a little photo with the pictures spelling DAD and a quote that we say to each other around the house.
Then I saw another post for a personalized Motivational Poster which I couldn't resist making. I thought Medman was in need of a little motivation to finish his last year of residency. But I found four good quotes instead of just one, so made four posters. Gotta love photoshop for making little projects like this so easy!
One that is too true:
Anyone who thinks the art of conversation is dead ought to tell a child to go to bed.
One that makes me laugh:
I am thankful for laughter, except when milk comes out of my nose.
One that is sweet:
Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable
happiness there is in our lives. - CS Lewis
And my very favorite:
Dad always thought laughter was the best medicine, which I guess is why several of us died of tuberculosis.
-Jack Handey, "Deep Thoughts" Saturday Night Live
