A dad recently asked me, "Wait, it's Mother's Day, not wife's day, right? Am I meant to get my wife a present? I thought it was just for the kids...?" 😅🤔
Yes and... no.
Dads, technically you don't have to do anything for Mother's Day. Sure, you can leave it up to the kids to do their best. You can sit on the sidelines and will have done nothing wrong. 🤷♂️
We're not the bare minimum kind of guys. 💪
The dads (and mums) that follow us here at Dad Certified, the dads that buy our products, the ones who set aside regular time for Dadventures and Date Nights even when they're busy, the ones who think about the kind of relationship they want with their kids and wife in 20 years' time...
We're here for THOSE DADS! 👏🏆😍
As parents, we have the privilege and responsibility of teaching our kids how to exist in this world. How to grow up to be kind and good and considerate people. 👏
And it starts at home. 🏠
It starts with simple things like how to show appreciation to their mum.😍❤
So no, you don't have to do anything for your wife for Mother's Day. But to those dads, my question would be...
Why don't you WANT TO!? 🤯🤔🤷♂️
Let me paint you a different picture, because I know (if you're reading this) that YOU are NOT the bare minimum kind of dad 👏💪...
A dad (like you) who is involved in making Mother's Day a wonderful memory for his family.
🤫Little whispers with the kids...
🤩planning sweet surprises...
✍ticking off checklists and making menus to cook for Mum...
📸Taking photos together because he knows it's usually Mum behind the camera...
😍Sweet glances from Mum to Dad throughout the day and little "thank you"s across the room...
I want to be THAT DAD! 🤩👏🙌
I'm pretty sure you do, too.
So if our Making Mum's Day Diary can help you be that dad... if I can make it easier for you to achieve that and to create these lifelong, precious memories with your family...
Well then I'm pretty stoked with my job. 😍🙌🙏
We genuinely hope that the Making Mum's Day Diary blesses your family and changes your home for the better, just as our other diaries have already for countless families across Australia. ❤😍

Cheering you on 🙌

Date Night Ideas for this Week
Keep the spark alive with some of our date night ideas this week 😍🔥 (Even without a babysitter!)
Staying In Date Night Idea:
- Breakfast In Bed (For Dinner!) 🍳 (A great practice run before Mother's Day dads! 😉 Choose your favourite breakfast feast and cook it together for dinner (in your pyjamas, of course), then jump back in bed to eat. Who says parents don't get breakfast in bed…? ;) )
- Sports Match 🏉 (Go watch a sports game together and cheer for opposite teams. Winner gets a face massage later.)
Cheering you on!
