Did your Dad have a saying that you always remember? My Dad had a few.
One that sticks out was a simple one. In his quiet manner, when my mom would be upset and couldn’t get us under control, he would walk in and calmy say “You guys, settle down.”
Did it work every time? Almost! He had such a gentle way about him that it calmed us instantly it seemed.
The other was during our morning routine. If he was having a hard time waking us up, he would burst into our room and jump on our bed and tickle us, yelling “here comes the tiger!” I would always groan about it, but looking back, it makes me smile. I never knew why he used that phrase or where it came from. But, I’ll always remember it.
So what kind of phrases do you remember your Dad saying?
