Father of the Week

I'm father of the week at my son's school. I'm nervous. I have to speak to them for about 15 minutes about what I do for a living and what my son and I like to do together. I have no problems with public speaking, and if fact do so regularly to high ranking senior officials at work. But there's something a little intimidating about 10 5-year olds with no attention span. I have no idea what to say. Plus, all year long, my son has come home with cool chotchkies from the various places of employment from the other Father's of the Week...I ordered some cool piggy banks from the online employee store, but they haven't arrived yet. So, I sent my wife to WalMart to put together some seriously loaded candy bags, hoping that the candy will distract from the fact that I have no cool stuff from my job.

dhead arrrrrrggggghhhhhhh

There appear to be so many worthy candidates.

Allright...scrambling worked today.

I hit up training and got some notepads and pencils, both with the company logo. I hit up the communications team and got company keychains and lollipops with the company logo on them. Then I hit up HR and got some squishy balls with the company logo and some pens with the company logo.

I'm all set.

Well, my wife just informed me that one of the dads is a firefighter, and his happy ass showed up a couple of weeks ago with the whole damn fire truck, complete with dudes in full uniform.

Hmph. I guess I'll just have to drag the whole damn bank down there, tellers and all!

You might want to give out the swag as "prizes" when kids answer some questions you quiz them with--just make sure everybody gets a prize.

It's pretty cool that your kids school is doing this. Mom's are usually (not saying dads aren't involved because Albert is there just as much as me) the ones who are at the school doing things with kids classes and volunteering.
My girls school in Austin had a program called "Dads at the Door". Dads signed up to commit 4 weeks spread out over the school year to be at the front door of the school greeting kiddos when they come in the morning. Pretty neato.

Ok, so things went well.

I got there and the kids were sitting in a circle, and Mason and I sat at the front of the class. He brought a "Me Bag" from home with a few of his favorite things. He had Buzz and Woody, his Spurs foam finger, his golf glove, and his Mario Kart game. Then I told them a little bit about my job, then I talked a little bit about what my son and I do for fun. Then I told the kids to each ask one question about Mason, and one question about me and that was pretty funny.

Then my son said I was the best dad in the world because I was good at MarioKart and I unlocked all the courses and characters for him. Not because I'm smart, or funny, or cool, or I take care of him or any of that stuff...but because I'm good at MarioKart! Funny, but it made me stop and think that the little things like that make all the difference in the world to him...to all kids.

awwww...im so glad things went well.

working as a counselor at an elementary...its always good to hear that parents are involved with their kids' schools. youd be surprised what it does to their ego. sadly...not all kids get that opportunity....



and the whole part where you said..."Funny, but it made me stop and think that the little things like that make all the difference in the world to him...to all kids." made me get teary eyed.

yes, im hormonal.
