Happy Father’s Day. You deserve it.

Family Man


Today is Father’s Day.  Normally, that would mean like most fathers I would be entitled to sleep late, expect a hot breakfast or brunch depending on when I rolled out of bed and probably two unusually quiet teenagers and a wife willing to cater to my carnal desires.

However, since I work nights and sleep days, almost none of this will happen.

And I’ve pretty much accepted this.  I’ve had too many Fathers Day in the past where I had no job, no money and not much of a chance of changing either circumstance.  So,  you’ll just have to understand that while I’m getting into bed while the rest of the world is getting out of theirs, that’s a trade-off I find remarkably easy to accept.

To every man holding it down and taking care of his family and responsibilities, this is your day.  Don’t let anyone tell you being a father isn’t among the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

  1. Happy Father’s Day Jeff.

    Since this is the first Father’s day since our father died, I think this should be one to remember. While we miss our dad, we should recall how he was in life and what he meant to us. He wasn’t Ward Cleaver and certainly not Homer Simpson. I miss his humor, his subborness, intelligence and his warmth. I wish he could see Obama’s run. I wish I could talk sports with him, cut his hair, watch him with my kids. I wish I could just sit with him saying nothing. But those days are over and we have the responsibility to build memories our children will reflect on in the years to come. Sleep well Jeff.
