Spoiling the Greatest Dad Ever (I Kind of Owe It To Him)

“I feel bad for your dad!” People have said over and over again throughout my life once they learn I’m one of five daughters. And my dad scoffs each time, “Are you kidding? I have my very own fan club!” And it’s true, I’m a big fan, maybe even president of said club. But the way my dad refuses to entertain any of the challenges related to being the lone man in a house full of 6 estrogen riddled women is pretty impressive. I mean, it’s not like we let him off easy. 

And personally, I was a handful. OKAY FINE. Two handfuls. I went from a straight A student who asked Santa for world peace for Christmas, to a rebel-rebel high schooler passing out drunk at 15 on the front lawn, insisting that I was “just tanning.” (Sorry dad.) He refused to let me spiral out of control. Like the time he dragged me to the office of my High School to talk to the attendance clerk about my multiple absences that I swore were (lied about being) a clerical error. Once the staff explained they were legit truancies, he had some words to express very loudly in front of the entire office, who all looked on shocked and pleased with his shakeup. 

I gave him every reason to be upset, to lock me down, to build resentment and treat me like a delinquent. And yet he still warmly and eagerly expressed his unconditional, unwavering love and admiration for me. He’d wake me up at 3am to watch a meteor shower, he’d tell me how proud he was to have me for a daughter, and he’d make time to take me on special trips to like breakfast in Malibu where we’d have big talks on life and what really matters.


My dad is my anchor. Five daughters and we never had to compete for his time. He has been there for each of us in childhood and adulthood and I can’t imagine being the stable, spiritual, being that I am today without his sans judgment guidance and constant support. I love my dad more than I could express in words.


And this Father’s day, Macy’s has a Nautica Men's Fragrance Gift Package that is irresistible for the anchor in your life.


It’s a four piece gift set for $65. If the products were sold individually, it’d total $128. So it’s a GREAT deal and smells SO GOOD. But the point is that dads are special and it’s nice to celebrate them. A fragrance set is something my dad wouldn’t think to purchase for himself because he’s always putting everyone else’s needs and desires before his own.


And for that reason, I’m spoiling the greatest dad ever.
