    and let me watch him do it.

    he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.
    ~

    as the need for a father's protection.
    ~

  • Happy Father's Day!!!!!

    In honor of all of the WONDERFUL father's, daddys-to-be, grandfathers, step-dads, and all the other father figures who work so hard to nurture, love and support their children -- we will share some Father's Day trivia and quotes with you. Enjoy!

    Father's Day Facts 

     FACT: Moms got their special day before the Dad's did. Mother's Day was proclaimed a holiday in 1914 and became nationally recognized in 1924 but Father's Day didn't become an "official" holiday until 1972! However, Sonora Smart Dobson first proposed the idea of Father's Day in 1909. She came up with the concept of Father's Day in honor of her own Father - a civil war vet - who raised six children on his own. Sonora is also known as the "mother of Father's Day."

    FACT: The rose is designated as the official flower of Father's Day. You can wear a red rise to honor your dad -- but wear a white rose in memory of a father who has passed on.

    FACT: The Romans used to honor their Father's every February.

    FACT: An estimated 40% of Dads say they would take a pay cut if it meant they could spend more time with their children.
