Father's Day is coming up, which is obviously the perfect time to celebrate all of the amazing dads out there doing their best to be good role models. For those who have been dads for a long time, Father's Day might not be the most exciting day of the year for them — they've been through it, they've done it all with their kids, and they probably just want to use the day to get a little bit of a break. But for new dads? The day takes on a seriously special meaning, especially if it's their first Father's Day ever where they're the ones who get to be celebrated. So, if your friend or family member is a first-time dad on Father's Day, you might want to text them to let them know you're thinking about them.
If it feels way too formal to send them a Father's Day card or give them a gift or even to call them, then you can do the next best thing: send them a quick text message. It's a really sweet gesture that shows that you care, it's easy and fast, and it's something he'll definitely appreciate. And if you really want to send a text to remember, it will have to be a little bit better than just, "Happy Father's Day."
You could just say that, of course, but you want your text message to be special, right? Probably, because they're likely going to be feeling a lot of love on this day. So, we've done the work for you: below is a collection of funny, sweet, and just adorable messages for the new dad in your life. Here are a few texts to send to a first-time dad on Father's Day:
