fathers day
Apr 12

For once in my life I’m being organised, and thinking about Father’s Day already. This year it falls on Sunday 17 June in the UK.

To mark the occasion, I’m running a competition here on the blog, and the lucky winner will receive a pair of handmade, bespoke cufflinks, containing their chosen family photo.

The cufflinks are being kindly donated by Brighton-based jewellery designer Ring Jewellery, who is a specialist in gold, platinum and titanium rings.

The competition is open to all readers, not just Dads.

There are two ways in which you can enter the competition, and to increase your chances of winning, you are able to do both!

The first way of entering is to ask your child to help you complete this sentence: “I love my Daddy, because…” Please quote their answer as verbatim as possible. Your child doesn’t have to be W. B. Yeats. Obviously very young children may need their Mummy to help a little! I asked Little I in order to sanity check the question, and she replied: “I love my Daddy because he is lovely.” Not very original, but sincere and genuine!

Please write your child’s completed sentence in the comments section below this post.

A further option is to upload the photo that you would like to go inside your cufflinks, within the comments section below. To do this, click inside the comment box and you should see ‘+image’ which allows you to upload an image from your computer or phone. I’ll be looking for an extremely cute family photo, which can either be you with your children, or just your children on their own. It doesn’t need to be a professionally shot photo.

I will be hand-picking the winner, based on what I feel is the best entry.

Please be sure to enter your name and contact details via Rafflecopter, so that I can easily contact the winner.

The competition will run until Sunday 29 April 2012, and the winner will be announced on Monday 30 April and notified by email. Good luck!

    Unfortunately I am a single mum and my children’s dad has no contact.  My parent live very close and my children look to my dad (their only grand-dad) as their ‘male father-figure’)  I asked them to tell me why they love grand-dad and here were their replies:

    I love my grand-dad because he is teaching me how to play golf! (eldest son aged 8)I love my grand-dad because he takes me in his boat. (youngest son aged 7)
    I love my grand-dad because he plays ooops a daisy! (eldest daughter aged 6)
    I love my grand-dad because he is funny! (youngest daughter aged 4)

    I asked my daughter why she loved her Daddy whilst we were driving back to see him tonight.  She replied:
    “I love Daddy ‘cos he loves me.  He kisses me all up!  I love painting with him on Daddy Day and love playing hide and seek.”  I told her that was lovely then she said, “Yes but I do really love Baby Annabelle too Mummy!” 

    I then asked my son who has just turned 2 and he said, “Daddy!!”

    welll. My Rosie is only 13 1/2 months old, but she can say a lot of words, and understands more. We teach her sign language to help communicate even though she isn’t deaf. I signed I loved her earlier, and she signed it back. She pointed to her daddy and did the same. I said “why do you love daddy?” and she did the sign for milk and the sign for snuggle while saying “aaaahhhh” with her head on the side – her way of saying “cute” (the sound we make when something is nice – like awww)
    so I can only presume it’s because he gives her milk and snuggles. It doesn’t seem to matter I breast fed her for 7 months…typical.

    my 4 1/2 year old connor has verbal dyspraxia so answering this question isnt easy for him but after a little probing the answer is , “I love daddy because he bought my mario wii ” …… now “mario wii” is actually the name of his pet giant african land snail so i think thats what he means as mario is his best friend lol !
