Father’s Day is approaching and I’m always looking for an inexpensive but special way to let my husband know what a fantastic father he is and how much we appreciate him. In the past I’ve done this for Valentine’s Day. I thought about all the amazing things my husband has done for me and our kids; he does things every day but here are a few of the biggies just from the past year:
- He delivered our baby! (And no, he’s not a doctor!)
- He takes the kids out & writes posts about their adventures for my blog (check out his outing with Dexter to The Elephant & the Whale and his outing to Monster Jam with Cooper).
- He works to support us and takes time to play with the kids, read to them, and put them to bed almost every night.
- He chaperones field trips, makes balloon animals at our son’s school, and even volunteered to be the PTO President.
I decided that I should be bragging about him! To everyone! And then I thought, I bet other people would like to “Brag on Dad” too.
So, for the entire month of June, I will be posting a special “brag” each day on the Toddling Around Chicagoland Facebook page. This will be a chance to let the world (well, the portion of the world that follows Toddling Around Chicagoland, which is currently over 800 people!) know about the great dad in your life. If you want that special father in your life included, send me a message on Facebook or by email at ToddlingChicago@yahoo.com. The “dad” can be your dad, your husband/partner/child’s father, or any other father figure in your life or your child’s life.
I’ll choose the best brags to share and if I’m not able to choose the best ones for some reason I’ll start with the first ones I receive. I can’t guarantee that every brag will be shared. Also, Facebook does not always allow me to tag individuals from the Toddling Around Chicagoland page so the best way to be sure it’s seen by the dad you’re bragging about (& everyone else!) is to share the Toddling Around Chicagoland status that mentions them to your page & tag them yourself.
(Sorry Moms, I would have done this for Mother’s Day but I just thought of it. Maybe we’ll do a Mom themed brag month soon!)
EDIT: Brag on Dad now has a prize! The Blue Basket is offering a randomly chosen Dad a Car Play Shirt. See this post for more information.
