It’s Father’s Day and at the Dadsnet, we understand this may be cause for celebration, but it might not be too. However, whatever your situation, wherever you are today and whatever you are doing, we want to raise a toast to you. To all the dads, step-dads, grandads, father figures and male carers doing what they do for the love of their kids.
- Some of you will be with your kids, getting that lie in and the almost-dangerously undercooked boiled egg in bed
- Others will be off to work as if it were any other day
- Many dads will not be bothered about what is just a note in a diary
- Some will have to deal with their kids being somewhere else today
- Others will be mourning their children on Father’s Day
- Many will be mourning their own dad today
- Some dads will be meeting up with their fathers for a wholesome Sunday activity
- Others will be wondering whether to send an estranged dad that text message,
However you spend the day, allow yourself a moment to celebrate yourself. You’re doing your best and you deserve the recognition. Father’s Day as a big, public celebration isn’t for everyone, but we can look deeper into the meaning of what it is to be a dad and give ourselves a little pat on the back today.
Here’s to you, dads.
