Oh $#!@ Happy Father's Day...



It's another week and another Fatherhood Friday over at Dad-Blogs. Head on over and check out some of the awesomeness that goes on week in and week out.

Is it already Father's Day weekend?? I know we all seem to act shocked like, "wow it's Father's Day?" but we know. Don't you ladies think that we don't and you can get away without acknowledging it. Every year when Father's Day comes around I can't help but to laugh and give the missus a hard time about my first Father's Day.

Everybody has these great plans in mind as to what it will be like...let me just tell you, it wasn't like anything I could have ever imagined.

My sister and brother-in-law decided to get married that weekend(and the missus has no problem blaming the entire thing on them). The weddings in our family were kind of crazy marathons. The missus and I got married in her church and we had the reception at a lodge back in my home town. 2 1/2 hours apart from each other. The reception was 6 hours after the wedding to allow everyone travel time. My sister and b-i-l did the same thing except they got married in his church and the reception was at the same lodge. Another 2 1/2 hours apart but in a different direction.

Needless to say we were all exhausted. Sunday(Father's Day) we had another 2 hour drive from my parent's house back to our house. We got home and unpacked and all sat down. Before I knew it I was playing video games while EVERYONE else was sleeping. I took pictures, even the dog was unconscious in front of the couch.

A few hours later the missus woke up and mumbled "Oh $#!@ Happy Father's Day..."

So to all of you ladies out there, on Sunday when you wake up, remember "Oh $#!@ Happy Father's Day..."

Hilarious! I'm sure it was indeed the wedding that distracted her.

Hope you got something good that day! :)

I take it you are not from Irish stock then.

Weddings here can not be more than an affordable taxi drive from the Church in order to acccomodate the "marathon" toasting of the nuptials.

Thanks for this!

@Surprised Mom- The weddings were awesome all day events. Tons of fun. LOL Thanks!

@Melisa- she also says that she can't be blamed because Number 1 wasn't old enough to remind her...

@mccarey- no Irish here LOL. There's nothing that even resembles a taxi service in my home town...

Jason said...

@Bella Daddy- Happy Father's Day to you as well!!
