Things I Want For Father’s Day
Things I want for Father’s Day- baseball tickets!
I don’t want a mug or a tie or any more BBQ equipment. Here are the tangible and intangible things I want for Father’s Day:
Being woken up with cake and presents
Then being able to turn over and sleep in for a while
Nice weather for a family bike ride or picnic lunch
A long phone call with my dad
A handmade card from my son
Some sort of Game of Thrones swag

Some sort of baseball memorabilia
Star Wars stuff is always good
Tickets to an upcoming baseball game
For the Care.com working dad survey, the State of America’s Fathers Report and Boston College’s latest study on work-life for Millennial dads (all released this week) to get tons of media attention
For the attention on fathers to extend well beyond Father’s Day
For a few more states to follow the lead of California, New Jersey, Rhode Island and New York in providing paid family leave
For more private companies to offer paternity leave
A nice little sales bump for my book, The Working Dad’s Survival Guide! (it makes for a great Father’s Day gift)
Things I want for Father’s Day- a homemade Father’s Day card
For the following phrases: “Mr. Mom”, “Are you babysitting?”, and “How nice you are giving mom a break” to never be uttered again
For at-home dads to be accorded the same respect as any other full-time parent
For working dads to feel the support of their supervisors and coworkers who realize that being a great dad and a great employee are not mutually exclusive
The lawn to magically mow itself
For even more dads in the public eye to visibly role-model involved fatherhood
A nice glass of Rioja
For Ramsey Bolton to finally get what’s coming to him!!!
