Father’s Day – 5 Things We Love About Dads

At Etched In Memories we hear many fabulous stories about dad and how special dads in general can be – for many reasons. There are a few reasons however which keep cropping up over and over (much to our surprise) and we thought we would share these with you.

1. Dad Jokes

Dads in general seem to be known for their bad sense of humour or humour which is often at the expense or embarrassment of the child (regardless of their age). Even though this is the case, for the most part – the kids seem to love their dad because or even in spite of it. They may outwardly cringe at the jokes dad makes but without them – well it just wouldn’t be the dad they know and love.

2. Protective Dads

This one is particularly true when it comes to daddy’s little girl; what girl hasn’t heard their dad make a joke about how dad has to approve of the new boyfriend beforehand or how the men have to get daddy’s permission before he wants to marry his little princess. Again cringeworthy especially as the daughter enters the dating stage but for the most part dad is especially loved because we know how much he cares. And for that we are grateful.

3. Rough and Tumble Games

When mum is away, let the games begin. Dads have a special way of allowing kids to be kids and connect with them in a way which is special and memorable. Mums might not like it but children enjoy the rough and tumble play on the floor and enjoy the thrill of the chase as dad comes barrelling down on them. And as for those tickle spots…look out!

4. Dad’s Meals

Many of you love dad for their cooking ability – and we are not talking the well balanced healthy meals that mum opts for. You guys love dad for their pancake and eggs and bacon ability – the meals that seem to create a strong and delicious bond between father and child. And seconds are always available if dad is cooking.

5. Dad’s Dress Sense

Remember when dad wore that outfit that was just totally embarrassing and even today it makes you shake your head in horror. But if you think about it long enough a smile will soon develop on your face when you remember dear old dad in ‘that outfit’. We love our dads “just because” – not because he is a trendsetter or even remotely cool (oh how we wished!).

Maybe not your top 5 list – but dads have a unique way of entering our hearts and heads without really trying. Do you have a special or memorable story about your dad?

5 Reasons Fathers Are Special

1.  Who else will throw you in the air and catch you again while your mother covers her eyes and cries out “oh be careful…”?

2.  Who else will give your boyfriend or girlfriend the intimidating silent stare that means “Don’t you DARE hurt my child”?

3.  Who else just has to appear in the background to make bullies slink away with their tails between their legs?

4.  Who else tells those silly jokes that make you roll your eyes and groan?

5.  Who else gave you that amazing sense of strength and security as you were growing up – the one that made you feel so safe?

We could go on and on because there are many reasons that fathers are so special.

Father’s Day is coming up soon.  When you feel too tired to bother finding him a special gift, just remember the happy childhood he gave you and make the effort.  These cufflinks would be perfect.

He will love you whether or not you give him a gift but wouldn’t it be lovely to see the smile of delight on his face?

Father’s Day Ahead

It is only a couple of weeks until Father’s Day.  Have you placed your order yet?  There is still time to order and personalise a gift from our range that he will treasure forever.

He deserves a special gift, after all.  Dads play a special role in our lives and it’s one that sometimes goes unacknowledged.   There is nothing that can replace that special male role model, is there?  For sons they show what it is to be a man.  For daughters they set the standard for their future life partner.  Those are seriously big shoes to fill.

We make a big noise about Mother’s Day but Father’s Day seems to slip by without the big fanfare which is disappointing.  They deserve every bit of respect, love and pampering that mums do.  OK, perhaps they’d prefer to watch the footy in peace instead of the pampering, but you know what I mean.

Men don’t usually show their feelings like women do but you know that he lives for you.  Everything he has done in life has been for you.  He’s given you everything that he could to make your life easier.  He won’t tell you about it; he just does it.  He loves you very much.

Make sure that your dad knows how much you love him, too.
