Funny messages

  • I hope your special day is as fun as your life was before kids!
  • I'm so glad Mum let you put a bun in her oven.
  • I love how we don’t even need to say out loud that I am your favourite child. We both know it's our little secret.
  • Happy Father’s Day to the bloke that still loves signing his name in all of his text messages.
  • You've always been my favourite cashpoint.
  • It's no coincidence that "he farts" is an anagram of "Fathers", happy Father's Day.
  • Ignore what mum says about you, I don’t think you’re that bad (although your jokes need a bit of work!).
  • To the best Dad dancer in the world



  • I only hope when I have my own family that everyday I see a little more of my father in me.
  • Any man can be a father but it takes a special someone to be a dad.
  • Dad, you are someone I will always look up to no matter how tall I grow.
  • To my all time hero - I'm so privileged to call you my Dad.
  • When it comes to Dads, you're simply the best.
  • Thanks for showing me what a man should be. I love you more than you'll ever know.
  • All that I am, and all that I've had, is down to one person, its down to you Dad.
  • With everything that I say and say and do, I realise that I'm turning into you (and I couldn't be happier).
  • I don't think you'll ever realise how tall i feel when I'm with you. Thanks for always making me feel confident and safe.
