Star Wars Prize Pack Fathers Day

My Top 7 “I Am Your Father” Moments {Plus Giveaway!}

Star Wars has provided me with so much joy over the years, with no line being repeated more than the classic Darth Vader shocker, “Luke, I am your father”. To celebrate the upcoming Father’s Day celebrations, I thought I would share my Top 7 “I am your father” moments! Here we go:

7. That time I told the kids to clear their plates after lunch but they forgot and then went to play outside with their friends and then found the same old half-eaten food on their plates for dinner.

6. When the kids were supposed to shower but defiantly avoided it, so I pretended the shower was broken for a week so they could be the smelly kids at school. Lessons learned.

5. When my son threatened to run away because I wouldn’t let him play on his iPad for an extra half hour and then called his bluff by letting him put his shoes on and walking all the way down the street, only to have him realize it was a bad idea and quickly run back home.

4. The day I became the “Worst Dad Ever” for not buying the toy my kid wanted, 5 minutes before their best friend invited them over for a playdate that they needed a ride to.

3. When I told the kids to bring their toys in from outside in case it rained because I wouldn’t replace them, only to have it rain on their not brought in toys, ruining them for good.

2. When my kids found out they loved sports, so my wife and I took on extra jobs to help pay for the costs of competitive sports fees because we want the kids to have the opportunity to explore their full potentials.

1. The day I realized that I get to wake up and experience something new and amazing with these kids every single day and loving every second of it regardless of whether it’s good or bad.

As you can see, for better or worse, there are plenty of “I am your father” moments throughout the days and I absolutely wouldn’t have it any other way. Speaking of that, check out this amazing Happy ‘I Am Your Father’s Day’ video made especially for the Star Wars fans out there!

How cool was that?! Now I want to hear some of your “I am your father” moments, whether they’re happy, funny or other, and I have a great Star Wars prize pack to give away to help make your Father’s Day that much more special!

    I’d say one of my favorite “I am your Father” moment came when my toddler and I were walking around a park and he was amazed by the ants walking across the path…. So much so he started to squish all of them. He loves watching the bugs walk for a little bit until he decides it’s time to squish them.

    I like return of the Jedi because I love those furry little ewoks. Force awakens was good…but I haven’t recovered from what that Kylo brat did to my Han.

    I am one of those people who think there should be one movie in a series and then move onto something else for the next movie, so I like the first Star Wars Movie. I watched the second one and none of the rest because I did not like it as much as the first.

    My favourite will always be the original movie – the real first one, not the first one that is actually the 4th one and was made after the first three but the real first one, made first 😉

    The Force Awakens was my favourite. It was the first one I saw and the one that got me hooked. I did watch the others, but I still like it because this is where it started for me.

    I have seen all STAR WARS MOVIES except the last 2. I like the The Original STAR WARS: Episode 1V – A New Hope because it introduces All the Characters. I like R2D2 and C3PO.

    Empire was/is my favourite – that scene on Hoth where the AT-ATs show up just blew me away and I recreated that battle in my young head for many, many days. Thanks!

    Star Wars (later re-titled Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) because that was so very different from all the other movies I’d seen up to then. Loved it and all the following movies too. 🙂

    The original Star Wars. The opening shot of that spaceship that seemed to go on forever was like nothing I’d seen before.

    My favourite Star Wars movie it Return of the Jedi. The opening act vs Jabba the Hutt is one of the most entertaining moments in any film ever.
