Boots linked to Childalert.co.uk want us to share our Dad moments.




Dads are often over looked when it comes to verbalising your love and appreciation – will you be giving your Dad a card or hug this Sunday ?

Dads are pretty special and often it is not until they have gone that we remember just how important they were to us …….

My Dad moment is when he would find you alone and then talk to you one to one about his thoughts and ideas and philosophy on life. He made you feel you were the only one worth talking to. Increasingly those moments were hard to find as life got busier and he got older. I miss them.

Father’s Day is here to remind and influence us of that special bond that Dads can have with their children.  While every dad has his individual quirks that can make children roll their eyes in red-faced embarrassment , it’s  also these things about them that children will remember and love.

This post is to pay tribute to those unique dads all over the country this Father’s day and to ask you to share your special ‘Dad moments’.

 What are your Dad moments , please share them.

    Lorraine Kelly comments: “My dad has always been my hero. He and my mum were only 18 when they had me, and they made a lot of sacrifices and worked really hard to ensure that me and my younger brother never wanted for anything. My dad loves science and astronomy and some of my earliest memories are sitting in front of the black and white TV watching The Sky At Night and The Twilight Zone. A real ‘My Dad moment’ that sticks out for me is watching the moon landing with my dad. Even now, whenever I’m stargazing, it brings my dad to mind straightaway.”

    Sophia Warner, Sprinter also shared her special relationship with her dad:
    “My dad and husband have been instrumental to my success and are both so supportive in different ways. My husband Haydn is an amazing dad enabling me to live my dream and picking up the pieces by caring for our two young children – while I train full time. My dad has always been my backbone and my voice of reason and I have never got too old to phone him up and ask for his advice!”

    Joanne Jackson, Swimmer, commented: “There is (quite literally!) no way I would be where I am today without the amazing support my dad has given me. He has always been there for me, whatever I need. That includes being a great handy man!! Nothing is ever too much trouble for him. A key ‘My Dad moment’ for me would be watching him scale a ladder to show all the dads how it should be done.”
