A Dad’s Christmas Gift Ideas – Shit I Say

I come from a long line of teases. Teasers. Dads being dads.

A lot of times I think I add to my kids’ enjoyment of life. Their enrichment. Making indelible memories they’ll one day look back upon fondly.

Or at least I build up their tolerance to bullshit. You know, of the crazy uncle or teasing dad kind.

Hey, they gotta learn it somewhere.

And when I find something that truly gets my kids going, laughing until they sneeze, or cry, or puke, I work it until they can’t take it anymore.

Pure fun, right!

(Insert maniacal cackle here.)

On a related subject, and the point of this post, let me remind you that as of today there are less than two weeks until Christmas!!!

It was around this time last year, as I was quizzing my then four-year-old, Caleb, about what he wanted for Christmas, and he said he really didn’t know (the perfect opening!) that I started reeling off these inspired ideas.

He was highly amused. “NO!!!” he’d bellow, laughing. “That’s not a REAL present!”

And then alarmed: would I really be getting these things for him?

“Me? I’m just Dad. I only pass all this on to Santa.”

“NOOOOOOO!”
