  1. I honestly can’t think of a better Dad than you…well.. except for myself. But hey, being 2nd best to me is an honor. After all, there can only be one person in 1st place, but keep trying, and one day, you might get lucky and swipe that number one spot from me.
  2. Wow! I can’t believe you’re a Dad now. Does this mean the end of Friday nights out with the guys getting wasted till 4 am? Dammit, another one bites the dust. Well, I guess there is no better reason to switch things up than becoming a Dad, and no biggie, we can bring the party to your place instead.  
  3. Happy Father’s Day! So, tell me, after all of the nursery rhymes and cheesy pop songs on repeat, the sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and mushy food getting thrown at your face and all over your walls and floor…is it all worth it? Just kidding, I know how much you love your kids, but do yourself a favor and have a day off today. 
  4. Happy Father’s Day, you old man! Listen up, I’ve got an invaluable piece of advice for you. Tell the children that Dad’s going into flight mode until tomorrow!
