Important lessons from dads.


Last night I received an email from a good friend of mine who teaches third grade in California.
It seems they spent the day working on Father's Day cards. The slam dunk? Read on...




Dear Dad,

I had a lot of fun with you like when you farted on the fire. It was fun, I really enjoyed it.

Love,
Ryan




It's funny EACH time I read it. (I am wiping my eyes right now.)

First again?! Wow, if it hadn't been for my husband's 5 am alarm I'd have missed this moment. Now I don't have to kill him for not getting up until 6.

Five days! Woot!

That card kills. I wish I could see the dad's face when he opens it.

Grace said...

Wow. There's not a mom on the planet who could (or would want to) compete with that.

That's hilarious!

note to self...next time we are camping...

Been there, done that. It's important to pass these things on to our children :)

But, as a firefighter I would be remiss if I failed to offer this important safety tip: Farts do contain small amounts of methane and hydrogen, so it is possible to seriously injure yourself this way. Keep a fire extinguisher nearby, and if your butt catches on fire or explodes...STOP, DROP, and ROLL.

Cora said...

Hee hee hee. It's funnier each time I read it too!

Dads are gifted with that "special" talent. :/

much safer to just have someone hold a lighter near your ass when the time comes...can you say, "blowtorch?"

Here! Pull my finger!

The subtle sign off of "I really enjoyed it" particularly cracks me up.

Rick Daley said...

I bet the child was up-wind.

Shana said...

Sprite's Keeper said...

Just wait til he gets to the part where dad teaches him how to smash beer cans against his head. Male bonding. Oy.

crazy ramblings of a tired mom said...

That is something my son would say about his dad.

人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
她說,她是怕自己太依賴
漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…

I had a guy friend in college that used to do that every time we went camping.
... I wonder if he has a son now???

Mrs4444 said...

Okay, well I guess it's safe to tell you then. When we went camping last week, Kendall almost immediately asked, "Can we light farts tonight?!"
