With Father's Day being Sunday, June 17 this year, we are wishing every dad a fun and happy weekend.
Father’s Day is Sunday and if you’re like me, you usually go down to the wire. If you haven't already, what will you get for one of your favorite guys? If your children are old enough, try a brainstorming session. What should we get dad? What does he enjoy? My kids have thought up some great ideas in years past although I think my 8-year-old may be doing one of those ‘this gift would be great for ME and dad’ since it involves a trip to Game Stop. Make a ‘day in the life of dad’ video: With iPhones and flip cams, it’s easier than ever to produce your own video. Write down all the things dad does around the house or at work, dress up the kids and have them do their best impression. My favorite clip was when my son tried shaving just like his…

All this columnist ever wanted was a manual.
Tiny. Fragile. Beautiful. Those were my first thoughts. I couldn’t believe I was handling my baby daughter. “What do I do with this?” That was my second thought. “Where is the owner’s manual?” I had an owner’s manual for my car, TV and even my microwave, and that was just basically punching a few buttons and presto, I had a warmed-up piece of meat. “What do I do now? How am I going to handle this? What’s next?” A few months later, my dad, daughter and I went out to lunch at a hamburger place. While we were eating, a stench came over the table. “What’s that smell?” my dad asked. Oh, now it was time for a diaper change. I had practiced this and done it at home, but this was my first road trip one. “Dad, can you give me a hand?” This was the …
Today is all about appreciating and honoring dad - but here are some ways to continue doing it throughout the year.

Today is the one day a year we set aside to honor dad. But, as you remember the times he got up early to take you to ball practice, taught you to ride your bike or came to your apartment to help you fix the leaky plumbing, maybe dads need more than one day to hear, "thank you." Maybe, just maybe, there are some special things children can do to celebrate dads throughout the year, creating memories for all that will last a lifetime. Most dads will tell you, "Don't buy me anything - I already have everything I need." But if you're like most children, you want to find that perfect something that will let him know how much you appreciate all the big - and little - things he's done for you. So whether it's the official Father's Day, his …
