f is for fathers

we don’t have a year-round preschool,
but if we did, you know we’d have sent home
a token of love for all the dads.

we’d probably have had quite a bit of baby play too…
with water and easy-to-move strollers involved
in hopes of getting all kids to participate.

we’d have practiced writing
the satisfying word “DAD” and drawing hearts.
who knows, maybe we would have even used
real man perfume to sprtiz on a card?

maybe we would have done some shaving cream play?

maybe we’d make repurposed neck tie snakes?

or a little photo puzzle to do together?

or get really ambitious and make a pinball machine?

or maybe we’d have you in for some bacon mancakes (?!?!?!?)

i’d want to make a “that’s what s/he said book
for you of all the cute things your preschooler has said.

but i’m pretty sure we’d make you all
supersized rainbow collage ties to wear.
i can’t even find a photo on line of what i have in mind….
i think next year i might have to have
a get-ready-for-father’s-day at preschool.

to all you dads:  i genuinely hope you felt honored today…and as alive as a rainbow.
