Father’s Day Triumph

No need to break the bank or bend over backwards to achieve a Father's Day triumph. Just follow this simple recipe for a special day any dad would love.

As you probably know, yesterday was Father’s Day. And I did good. So good, in fact, you might even call it a Father’s Day triumph.

Jay is the best dad I could possibly ask for my girl. He loves her completely and takes excellent care of her. So I wanted to make this Father’s Day great for him.

Here’s what I did:

  • Made his favorite breakfast: eggs, biscuits, bacon, and plenty coffee.
  • Gave him three presents: One practical (wallet), one sentimental (our wedding video—now on DVD!), and one he truly wanted (cover thingy for his new treasured possession, a Scion xB).
  • Let him nap.
  • Didn’t nag.
  • Told him just how much I appreciate him.

It was a hit! Now tell me, WMAGs, what did you do for the dads in your life? Did you have a Father’s Day triumph of your own?

No need to break the bank or bend over backwards to give the perfect Father's Day gift. Just follow this simple recipe for a special day any dad would love.

P.S. I didn’t forget my own dad, who has always been terrific. I gave him a pen holder for his office with a picture of our family on it, plus a card I made with my Hallmark card-making software. I believe he liked both very much.

    Father’s Day in my house was just like yours! I made hubby Biscuits with Honey, Eggs and Sausage. Let him take 2 (!!) naps, kept the kids out of his hair. But I have to admit that I think I did nag (just a tad) by the end of the day 🙂 Hey, nobody’s perfect!

  2. This was the first year that I let my oldest (4) pick out the gift he gave his dad. He decided on a Snoopy Snow Cone Maker from Target. His dad loved it and everyone got to enjoy a delicious snow cone!

  3. My husband napped almost the entire day! Then we had a Father’s Day cookout in our backyard, with all the family dads (which is a lot — about 25 people.)
    I did the grilling, and it turned out to be kind of a disaster. Our gas grill isn’t working, so I put charcoal in it (I really wanted a cookout!). Um, bad idea. The coals got so hot, it caught the gas line on fire. I saw flames shooting up outside the grill and realized, oh, that’s not right.I had to put it out with a hose! Thankfully I hadn’t put the salmon on the grill yet, so I broiled it in the oven.

  4. That gas grill story will surely go down in family history. Glad no one was injured!
