Happy Father's Day

by on ‎06-14-2013 12:36 PM

FathersDay.jpgThis Sunday is Father’s Day- one of my favorite days of the year! Odd right, since I’m the mom?  I try to make sure my husband knows he’s valued every day, but this is the one day he allows himself to totally kick back which makes for a fun day.  Lawn needs mowing? Eh- it can wait.  House a little messy? Who cares! Instead we have a morning that includes a big breakfast and mass and then a day of whatever my husband wants. I’m hopeful this year we’ll spend it at the pool or at a local state park, but who knows with the weather Mother Nature has been handing us.

 

If the weather is crummy, it may be a day full of laziness in front of the TV, which I’m OK with!  Here’s a list of some of my favorite movies about fatherhood:

 

1)      If we’re watching a movie with the kids, we’re going to watch Mrs. Doubtfire. I mean- come on. Robin Williams in drag, sweet kiddos and a tear-jerking ending? Yes please!

2)      Is there any movie more iconic then The Godfather? I don’t think so!

 

3)      Yes, I realize that this is way out of season, but who is a more memorable dad then Clark Griswold? In my opinion, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is perfection as Clark fights for his family’s pool, deals with his in-laws and find that once-in-a-lifetime Christmas tree!

4)      If you prefer tough-guy fathers, they don’t get much tougher than Liam Neeson in Taken.  I wouldn’t want to be the guy dating his daughter!

5)      I know it’s a bit schmaltzy- but who doesn’t love a baseball flix? Field of Dreams is a baseball movie- but it’s so much more as Ray makes peace with his father. If you don’t  at least get a little teary-eyed at the end, we can’t be friends.

 

So how are you celebrating Father’s Day this weekend?

Can you give my wife lessons?:smileylol:

 

Thank you for lifting my spirits. Mine wants a BBQ, but guess who gets to cook on the grill. Perhaps it will rain, and she will get carry out BBQ. Part of being dad.

 

Happy Fathers Day, Heather!:smileylol:
