Quotable Sunday – Happy Father’s Day!

Is it just me, or are the weeks flying by at a much faster pace? It’s already Sunday – and you know what that means, it’s time for Quotable Sunday! Of course this week I chose quotes on Father’s, because today happens to be a special day. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s see how many of the same quotes the other participants post…after all, great minds think alike! ๐Ÿ˜‰
“Every mother generally hopes that her daughter will snag a better husband than she managed to do…but she’s certain that her boy will never get as great a wife as his father did.”
Anonymous

“If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.”
Bill Cosby

“A new father quickly learns that his child invariably comes to the bathroom at precisely the times when he’s in there, as if he needed company. The only way for this father to be certain of bathroom privacy is to shave at the gas station.”
Bill Cosby

“A father is a guy who has snapshots in his wallet where his money used to be.”
Unknown

“Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.”
Anne Geddes

โ€œBecoming a father is easy enough, but being one can be very rough.โ€
Wilhelm Busch

“Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers – and fathering is a very important stage in their development.”
David M. Gottesman

“A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms when his hands are empty.”
Unknown

“By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.”
Charles Wadsworth

“Small boy’s definition of Father’s Day: It’s just like Mother’s Day only you don’t spend so much.”
Unknown

Top Ten Things You’ll Never Hear a Dad Say

10. Well, how ’bout that?… I’m lost! Looks like we’ll have to stop and ask for directions.

9. You know Pumpkin, now that you’re thirteen, you’ll be ready for unchaperoned car dates. Won’t that be fun?

8. I noticed that all your friends have a certain “up yours” attitude … I like that.

7. Here’s a credit card and the keys to my new car — GO CRAZY.

6. What do you mean you wanna play football? Figure skating not good enough for you, son?

5. Your Mother and I are going away for the weekend … you might want to consider throwing a party.

4. Well, I don’t know what’s wrong with your car. Probably one of those doo-hickey thingies — you know — that makes it run or something. Just have it towed to a mechanic and pay whatever he asks.

  1. Love Bill Cosby's whole stand-up about being a parent. Especially when he talks about giving the kids cake for breakfast! That's my kind of dad.

  5. My Quotable Sunday

    Father's Day is bittersweet in our home, my dad has passed, and Tara's father (my husband now ex), abandoned us when she was just 8 mos old… having no contact whatsoever.

    So for me the Anne Geddes quote has special meaning! I guess today should be another day to celebrate ME, since I've been her only parent!

  6. Oh! I used that 'truly rich man' quote this year for the Father's Day present for the Dad I nanny for! I printed out the quote and then had each of the 4 kids make a paint hand print around it and then I framed it in an 8X10, it was so cute!

  7. Great choices for Father's Day quotes. I love the ones by Bill Cosby. Happy Father's Day to your hubby :o)

  8. that is a cute post! today is not a fun day for me as i lost dad in 2008. but i hope everyone who still has their daddy to be able to experience a wonderful time with him and make good memories!

  9. What a fun post. Great quotes! I think we only had two of the same ones ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Enjoy your day!

  14. "Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers – and fathering is a very important stage in their development."
    David M. Gottesman and isn't it cool to see how they do it!

  15. I love the Bill Cosby quotes, not to mention the list. My favorite is #8, why do all teenagers have that certain "up yours" attitude? ๐Ÿ™‚ Wishing the hovering hubby a happy Dad's day!

  16. I'm chuckling. I don't believe there's a man around, other than my own dad who ever thinks he's lost. My dad…we get off the freeway and he believes we're lost LOL

  17. I was googling Father's Day quotes last night and came across some of the same ones. I love your first one… it's so true. I can't imagine the days when I'll have to let Graham love another woman as much as he loves me. Sheesh.
