It’s a great day to be a Daddy in the South. Here at PrettySouthern.com, we wanted to say thank you to all the fathers, papas, pe-paws, dads, pappys, pa’s and men who lead by example for their children. One of our favorite daddy’s in literature is Captain Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind. It didn’t matter what nefarious life he’d lead before he and Scarlett had little Bonnie Blue Butler. This gentleman was willing to give his little girl everything her heart desired. Here are just a few of our favorite moments with dad over the years. Feel free to write yours below in our comments section.
Meeting Mama during fraternity rush; without which, none of us would be here today
Changing diapers…that sh*t must have stank!
Building, finding, buying the perfect Southern house to raise a family
Getting a puppy/kitten
Teaching the kids how to “shag” like they do in the Carolinas by dancing with Mom on that linoleum floor in the tiny kitchen
Coaching football, soccer, baseball, lacrosse, tee-ball, handball or any other sport
Allowing us to believe in the power our dreams
Building sand castles
Driving lessons. To this day, we can only parallel park because of our dad’s!
Thanks for the braces and giving us smiles that charm every soul
Moving us into the dorms our freshman year and multiple moves in-and-out-of apartments
Breakfast at Waffle House sitting at the counter
Game Day in Athens on any given Saturday
Putting more money in our checking accounts ”just because”
Teaching us how to garden, grill, cook, clean, all the things to make a house a home.
Dad’s – y’all are the best, thank you for always providing for us, and we love you so very much.
