My job as a mom to four boys would be much harder without my husband around to help. Other than the fact that he never changed a diaper (except on rare occasions where he had absolutely no choice but to do it), I think he totally rocks his Dad job. So do our kids. They believe their dad can do anything. He is their hero.
Father’s Day is the perfect time to show our dad how much we love and appreciate him. We are celebrating the little things that make him a great dad. I love to watch my husband interact with our children. He is always there for them when they need him. All the little things he does make him a great dad in our eyes.
He spends quality one-on-one time with each child.
Our dad lets each one of the boys pick an activity for just the two of them to do together. The boys love to come home and tell stories about what they got to do with Dad. He really knows how to make each boy feel special.
He finds out what interests our children and helps them develop those interests.
Sometimes it means he has to coach a sports team. Sometimes it means he has to give trumpet lessons. Often it means he has to learn new things for himself!
He says “I love you” and gives lots of hugs.
Our kids don’t have to wonder – they know their Daddy loves them more than anything because he tells them so.
He lets the kids help out with projects.
The boys learn a lot from helping their dad. He lets them “help” him fix things and do chores around the house. Dad is a patient teacher because knows as they get older, they will become more able helpers.
You’ve heard of a Mother Hen. Our dad is a Papa Rooster!
Our latest family project is raising chickens. Early this spring, we got 6 baby chicks. Cute little chicks grow up fairly quickly! It was time for them to move into their own place. Dad built a chicken coop, and he let the kids get in on the action. Their favorite part was painting. My 5-year-old loves to tell everyone how he painted the hen house. It’s little things like this that turn into favorite childhood memories.
The chickens have to be put in their house every night to be safe. It’s usually Dad’s job to go out there and round up the chickens at bedtime. He is the Papa Rooster, after all! There aren’t any lights out back where we keep the chickens, so it can get pretty dark. We decided to give Dad an Energizer Headlight as an early Father’s Day present. The headlight makes it a lot easier for him to take care of the chickens. He is able to see, plus both of his hands are free to use when he needs them.

Once the boys saw Dad’s headlight, they wanted one, too. So I went out to Walmart and got another headlight for Dad’s little helper. Now they both wear headlights when they take care of the chickens at night.
Dad’s headlight comes in handy in more ways than one. We could not find him the other night until we saw a light moving underneath the cars. Dad was wearing his headlight while he fixed something under the truck trailer. I know he is glad we got him something so useful for Father’s Day!
