Happy Father's Day to all of the Dad's Out there.
From Father's Day 2017
It's Father's Day and DC's Dad just came home last week from his Fall and Winter in Florida. This will only be the second time DC has seen him since he came home (maybe the 3rd?).
Before DC left for his Dad's he kept repeating, "I have to ask him" - which always means he has something he wants to do in mind.
Me: What do you have to ask Dad? I already told you that he is taking you to visit Grandma and Grandpa because it is Father's Day.
DC: Go to the bookstore.
Me: No, I don't think so. It's Father's Day and you have to do what Dad wants to do.
DC: Go to Texas Roadhouse (the gift card he had picked out for his Dad was of course all about DC as well).
Me: The card does not mean you are going there today.
DC: (Looking a little shocked that this was not all about him)
But I want - I have to ask HIM
Me: I'm sure you are going to Grandma and Grandpa's. It is Father's Day and you have to do what Dad wants, not what DC wants.
DC: (not looking very thrilled about the conversation) "What Dad wants".....
Now if this set of rules would work on Mother's Day.......... that'd be great.
Happy Father's Day!
