The Story Behind Our Checkbox Dad Card

Jun.5, 2014

We thought it would be fun to ask around Egg Press what people thank their Dads for, and thus, our Checkbox Dad card was born. The replies are both goofy and poignant and we hope will inspire you to pen your own “Thank you, Dad” message this Father’s Day. Read on for some of the stories behind the quotes…

Cassie:
"Thanks for letting me have sips from your beer”.

When I was a kid I was curious about the "adult drinks" I wasn't allowed to have. My Dad was kind enough to let me have a sip of beer from time to time. I didn't like the taste then, but now that i'm an adult I kind of get what all the fuss was about. Thanks Dad!

Carla:
“For mowing the lawn in your speedo.”

When my good friend's father passed away, she shared with me some of the memories she had of him. And amid the sadness, there was also laughter when she remembered that he would mow the lawn of their Arizona home in a Speedo. It was special to her that we were able to include it into our Father's Day card.

Tess:
“For embarrassing me in the grocery store.”

The statement on the check box card I'm writing about is about my dad embarrassing me in grocery stores. When I was old enough to really be embarrassed by such things, my dad would put on his safety glasses from work and hold my hand in the grocery store and sing really loud.  At the time, I could only laugh and feel silly and self-conscious, but now I realize the deeper lessons to be learned from being part of such a thing.  I hope I can do the same for my kids.

Kara:
“For not throwing me in the river when I got frustrated and threw my pole in.”

I grew up in Alaska. When I was little, my Dad would take me fishing and sometimes I didn't want to go. Or maybe I just didn't want to do what he wanted me to do just because he said so. One time he hooked a fish and handed me the pole, and for whatever reason, I wasn't having it. I threw the fishing pole into the river, leaving my Dad to scramble into the water to save it before it drifted away. I don't remember if he ended up catching the fish, but I know that he was mad. I have a feeling we both learned a lesson that day.
