Because that special day is sneaking up fast I tell you. I still cannot figure out how it is June so fast. Weren’t we just shopping for Christmas yesterday?
And because my friend from Time Out for Women‘s husband just happened to write a good book that would be a perfect gift for the big day.
This book is funny and light enough to be a perfect read for Dad while he’s getting a foot rub from your five-year-old but it is full of great, quick tips on how to make the most of this important job of dad-hood. (More book information here.)
My favorite “rules”? I love #33: “When you mess up, say ‘I’m sorry.'” Soooo important as a parent in my mind because we all mess up, right? And I love #74: “Keep learning, and share what you learn with your children.” I love that one. He ends that tip with this cool quote: “Tell me, I’ll forget; show me and I may remember, involve me and I’ll understand.”
Wait, maybe this book is really “Mom Rules” as well 🙂 There are a bunch of things I want to incorporate as a mother on top of the good Dad stuff.
So, enter a comment to win this little gem and I’ll announce the winner on Monday.
