Daddy's special time with T and B
Daddy's Special Stack
My husband does most of the bedtime reading at our house, and it’s always a special treat to pull out the books that have extra daddy love, including Daddy Kisses and Daddy Hugs from our board book days. Daddy also loves to be silly, and we enjoyed my mom’s gift of My Father, the Dog for its daddy connection as well as its humor.
Funny and Loveable
My Father, the Dog, by Elizabeth Bluemle, is a light-hearted comparison of how the narrator’s father is like the family dog: he enjoys getting the newspaper, he likes to sleep on the couch, but best of all, and he cares for and protects his family, among other similarities. I love that it’s silly and fun to read, but still imparts the warm fuzzies at the end.
My husband is an amazing father, and I value the unique skills and attitudes dads bring to parenting. We’ll be making dad a project this weekend and making some new memories. How will you honor dad?
