WORDS OF WIS­DOM FOR LESS EX­PE­RI­ENCED DADS

Reader's Digest International - - Drama In Real Life -

You can never have too much fun with your kid: “When I have a kid, I wanna put him in one of those strollers for twins, then run around the mall look­ing fran­tic.”

Co­me­dian STEVEN WRIGHT

Al­ways set aside time for you and your an­gels: “Well, it’s one a.m. Bet­ter go home and spend some qual­ity time with the kids.”

TV dad HOMER SIMP­SON

Might as well have a gag­gle of kids: “The man with six kids will al­ways be hap­pier than the man with six mil­lion dol­lars be­cause the man with six mil­lion dol­lars al­ways wants more.” At­trib­uted to au­thor

Gush over ev­ery gift your child be­stows upon you:

“I have mixed emo­tions when I re­ceive my Fa­ther’s Day gifts. I’m glad my chil­dren re­mem­ber me; I’m dis­ap­pointed that they ac­tu­ally think I dress that way.”

Co­me­dian MIKE DU­GAN

De­vise a plan to deal with your fu­ture grumpy ado­les­cent: “When your chil­dren are teenagers, it’s im­por­tant to have a dog so that some­one in the house is happy to see you.”

Writer NORA EPHRON

You’re the gate­keeper: “Pretty sure my main job as a fa­ther of daugh­ters is to make sure none of them be­come con­tes­tants on The Bach­e­lor.”

If there’s only one thing you learn: “Never change di­a­pers in mid­stream.”
