Happy Father's Day!

By: L'jeanne, Advertising Manager
Bug house

Dads are special people, so this Father’s Day, dare him to eat a chocolate chirp cookie at Audubon Insectarium! We’re letting Dads of all ages visit the Insectarium for FREE. If you and your father have never been to Audubon Insectarium make it a unique Father’s Day outing on this Sunday and enjoy it together! There’s so much to see and do once you’re there. In Field Camp you’ll get to see live animals up close and talk with an entomologist about insects. In the New Orleans gallery learn what you never knew about the insects you’re more than familiar with. If your Dad is anything like mine he’s more than likely very familiar with those sometimes pesky bugs. Dad’s are always designated the bug catchers. If there’s something flying, jumping or buzzing you’re sure to hear “DAD COME GET IT!” In honor of all dads this Father’s Day I thought I’d post a poem of Dad-isms. Check out these sayings I’m sure you’ve heard your father say a time or two!

Happy Father’s Day!


Dad-isms, the Things Dads Say: A Father's Day Poem

A little dirt never hurt anybody
Keep your eye on the ball
We've got to toughen you up
You'll learn someday
It'll be all right
What? Us kids were just having fun.

Who wants pancakes?

I'm just gawking
Go ask your mother
What did your mother say?
You didn't get that from me
Do what I say, not what I do
It builds character

Hay is for horses

If it ain't broke, don't fix it
It's not worth doing unless you do it right
Nobody said it would be easy
Oh c'mon, you can do it
You had to learn the hard way, didn't you?

Listen to your mother

Money doesn't grow on trees
You kids don't know what hard work is
I'm not made of money
Don't throw that out! We can use that!
Just because it's more expensive doesn't mean it's better

That's a steal!

We're not lost I just don't know where we are
It's that place where the post office used to be
Keep your hands on the wheel
Give it a little gas...Not that much! Brake! Braake! Stop!
What were you thinking?

You're only young once

Has anyone seen my keys? Jacket? Hat? Glasses?
I'm not sleeping
I'm just resting my eyes
Zzz...What? I'm awake. Why'd you turn the TV off?
When I was your age...

What was I saying? Oh yeah...

Sleep tight
don't let the bedbugs bite
See you later alligator
After awhile crocodile
Love Ya
