Thanks Dad

June 16th, 2011

    With Father’s Day around the corner, we reflect on the moments that make Dads….. well just Dads. Behind the button up shirts and ties, their panache for turning every moment into a reflection, and best of all having no shame of embarrassing their children. Through laughter, horse-play, teaching us to live and enjoy our lives the best we can. After all, they brought us into the world…well partially.

    Fondest Childhood Memory: Ski trips with dad singing Rod Stewart songs while I was stuck on the chair-lift, and finishing the day with Mac and cheese.

    Road trips with James Taylor, Seals & Croft, and Abba blasting. Thanks to Dad they’re still our favs.

    Most Embarassing Childhood moment: There are so many, how do we narrow this down? My dad sporting a cheetah print Speedo to a father/daughter Girl Scout water park trip should top it.

    Funniest/Inappropriate Saying: A woman is as old as she looks, but a man is not old until he stops looking.

    Greatest Lesson Learned: Don’t forget to fill the vodka bottle with water and don’t blame it on the cleaning lady.

    If you’re going to do something, do it well, and give it your all.

    What I disliked most as a child but am grateful for now: Homework before television and math lessons with my dad every single night. Turns out it really is best to always write everything down and show your work.

    Now share your favorite memories with us!
