Thrusday Thirteen

13 Reasons I love Dads

1.They know a lot of information, whether it is about super heroes, space, and sports or how to turn a potato into a radio; Dad’s know a lot of stuff.

2.Dads are the head of the household, but they know who really is in charge and they are perfectly fine with that.

3. Dads have a huge impact on their daughters. The first man a little girl falls in love with is her Dad, and all the men in her life will be compared to him.

4. You can’t beat the love and protectiveness Dad’s have for their little girls, Dads know what it was like to be a young man.

5. Dads are an irreplaceable role model for their sons. They show them how to be men. Another good reason Dads remember how it was to be a young man.

6.Dads replenish their wives. Moms who give love and affection all day (sometimes with little in return) need to be replenished. That is where Dad comes in. When he shows Mom all of his love and affection, she is filled up and able to give her love easily to their children.

7. Two words…piggyback rides

8.Dads have interesting ideas. They come up with cool projects for their kids without a care how messy the project may get.

9. Cooking, I know Moms can cook fantastic meals, but there is something about a meal when Dad cooks it. It just taste so good. Once again he does not mind the mess that comes with letting the little people help.

10.Dads are funny. They can get away with some jokes and funny situations that some Mom’s can’t. If Dad does something funny the kids will roar with laughter, if mom does the same thing the kids will look at her and say, “ewww gross mom!”

11. Children view their Dad as the strongest man in the world. Nothing bad can happen in the dark at night when Dad is there. He can beat up any monster or bad guy that ever lived.

12. Advice, Dads give very good practical advice. They get to the problem and give a solution, period.

13. Hard work, some Dads work all day long, come home, help with the kids and may even do some house work. Now that is cool.

Thursday Thirteen


Monday through Sunday said...

Wonderful list! My Dad has passed on..but it is great to watch my husband with our children. Piggyback rides are the greatest! Have a blessed day!

Kristi said...

This was a fun post to look at from two different angles. My husband is a wonderful hands on father to our boys. I didn't know my father until I was an adult, and now I cherish that relationship.

Tink said...

My father died 12 years ago, but I still miss him every day... I was a father's child and couldn't agree more with your list!
Thanks for visiting my comments TT.

Toni said...

Ahh, what a great list and post. So true. I was lucky to have a father who loves me, not overly hands on when we were little but still a great man. And I have a husband who is a great father.

What a great list and oh so true!

Baby Mama said...

Laura said...

Great tribute to Dads! Dads cannot be replaced. We only get one Dad!

My 34th TT is up: 13 comments you can make to your physician while he's performing a colonoscopy on you. Here's the link.

Christine said...

My parents divorced when I was 12 really put a crimp in my relationship with my dad.

Dads are so important to a family.

If you have a good one you are blessed.

Such a great list! It's a good thing to appreciate the dads for the things they do.

I love the "dads replenish their wives" one. It's so true. Some days I just can't wait for my husband to get home. It comforts me just to have him there, even if I'm doing the same things I was doing while he was at work!

Kelsey said...

Awesome list!

SissyMerks said...

Once again, Great Post! I enjoyed reading it. I like #2 the best! (wink, Wink) ;-)

Nicole Austin said...

Great list! My dad passed away 21 years ago and I miss him terribly.

Ruth said...

My husband has been away a lot for work lately and it has really highlighted how crucial his role is, in many of the ways you've mentioned.
Here's to dads!
