Stepdad quotes = bonus dad quotes

Father’s Day comes but once a year (in June!), but Father’s Day quotes are good for any day you want to honor dad. Children can get specific in their cards and messages with father-son quotes, or father-daughter quotes, but what about the words of appreciation for your other father: your stepdad?

In Sweden, blended families are called bonusfamiljen: Bonus Family! “Bonus Family” is also the name of a successful Netflix show about a blended family in Sweden. This leads to the terms bonusmamma (Bonus Mom) and bonuspappa (Bonus Dad), which have been adopted by many English-speaking stepparents. We agree that “bonus” sounds a lot nicer than “step,” so we made this beautiful list of bonus step dad quotes to honor stepdads for Father’s Day.
