Dad-ism Contest Winner Revealed!  by Tara

June21

As dad Shaun Fenton would say, “Hold onto your tootsies!” It’s time to reveal the winner of our Dad-ism drawing!

Thanks to everyone who shared their favorite Dad-isms! There were some doozies! Believe it or not, no two dads had the same Dad-ism! Click here to read some of the hilarious Dad-isms and check out the pics of these wise papas with their families.

All of the dads’ names were entered into a drawing and one lucky duck was pulled out on Tuesday morning. The winning dad was…

Tom Worsfold!

Tom’s daughter Amanda wrote in saying:

Whenever we ask my dad (if he can do) something, such as turn up the volume on the TV, he always replies with “Sure, I can turn it up, I can turn it down…” It gets really annoying sometimes, but it’s why we love him. :)

Well, we bet that he can find a great way to spend the $200 gift card! Congratulations to Tom and thanks to everyone who shared their favorite Dad-isms.

Keep your eyes peeled – a new fun contest is just around the river bend! (Anyone else familiar with Disney’s Pocahontas?? Yep, I just sang the last part of this blog post.)

Contest: Dad-isms!  by Tara

June11

Dads say the darnest things. Come on, we all know it’s the truth!

This Father’s Day, we want to hear your favorite Dad-ism. What’s a Dad-ism? It’s a phrase that your dad says over and over and over again; typically hilarious, even if they don’t mean it to be.

“When I was your age, we didn’t (bla bla bla), we had to (bla bla bla) and we were happy.”

“I will turn this car around.”

“Did someone see that duck?” (after passing wind)

We know you’re laughing out loud right now as you think of some of YOUR dad’s Dad-isms! Quick – before you forget – send us a picture of your dad (or other father figure in your life) along with your very favorite family-friendly Dad-ism (keep it clean, folks!). All dads will be entered into a drawing. One lucky papa will be drawn to win a $200 VISA gift card.
