I am sure the people who came up with the concept of these holidays will not be too thrilled about the commercialization of these traditions they started. But I for one, choose to celebrate these days like I would a birthday at home – making an extra special effort to make dad feel special and cherished – home-made cards, best behavior (possible) from the little ones for this day (and a promise of more good behavior for every day), dad’s choice rules for the day for outings/food choices, et al.
A Book Review: Today, dad and daughter enjoyed reading a very sweet book together – Saturday is Dadurday by Robin Pulver.A sweet read for everyday that shows how life and work balances impact parents everyday and does tend to take us (as parents) away from that time spent with our precious children. In this book, Mimi and her dad have established their own tradition of Dadurday – where they do things together – silly things, sane things, anythings! But when things change and Dadurday suddenly is a solo show for Mimi, what happens?
How Mimi brings a charming solution to what she thinks is a ‘badurday’ is heartwarming – reading this book definitely made me feel both sad (for the times I have obligations that take me away like the dad in this book) and happy (that kids are resourceful and resilient and figure out a way to make everyday special). This is a book to celebrate family – EVERYDAY.
The illustrations by R.W.Alley compliment the book wonderfully – bright and colorful and portray Mimi and her family perfectly.
Adorable all over.
