Love this one by Soosh. Our little girl is still small but I can identify with this already:
Snezhana Soosh has shared a beautiful series of illustrations of the love between a Dad and his daughter that are just wonderful. She published them on Instagram. A number of sites have published the images, including Good Things Guy and Bored Panda:
I love Soosh’s illustrations. Here are some of my favourites:
I just want to head home to my little girl now …
I love this post by Rosie Writes titled “Dumb-ass stuff we need to stop saying to Dads”. She touches on something I notice now and then: this idea that a Dad is “an inept accessory to parenting”.
The Dads I know are the opposite. They are deeply involved in their kids’ lives; they take kids to school while Moms head to work; take them to the park and chase them around in hysterical games of Tag and more. They also have full-time jobs and then some.
They are awesome Dads and they inspire me each time I see them with their kids.
There is so much I like about Rosie’s post and this pretty much sums it up for me:
“Is Daddy on babysitting duty today?”
Nope, he’s not a baby sitter.
He’s a parent.
Today is Fathers’ Day in South Africa (and possibly for you too). I prefer “Dads’ Day” and this is my little greeting.
I love being a Dad. Our kids’ arrival introduced an amazing dimension to my life which shifted priorities, focus and purpose. It has been a wild ride and although it isn’t always hugs and kisses, there are plenty of those too and they make it all worthwhile and then some.
So happy Dads’ Day to all the Dads.
