OK Blog readers, I need help! (Shocking, right?)
As I am sure you already know, and if you don't please allow this post to serve are your reminder, Father's Day is June 20th. Between moving, trying to unpack, sharing a car (Mike's is in the shop), and taking care of London I have done NOTHING to prepare. Last year it was easy. Mike was deployed, and London was only 3 months old. So we made him a care package containing a bunch of junk food, a card in which I recorded London cooing, and this picture.
This year is not as easy. This year Mike is not
being held hostage by the Army deployed thousands of miles away. This time he has all of the major conveniences that the local 7-11 and Walmart can offer. He also gets to see London in all of his toddler into-everything-bad attitude-fit-throwing glory on a daily basis. Sometimes he probably gets to see London a little TOO much.
I know what the above sign says, but since he was gone last year this is actually Mike's FIRST Father's Day. I want to do something special for him. Of course I could just buy him a gift but I want it to be meaningful. I believe last year I threw an Ipod shuffle into his package and called it his "gift", but really what does an Ipod have to do with being the awesome father that he is? I want something that lets him know that I couldn't have chosen a better Dad for London, even if I tried. I want something that lets him know what an amazing job he is doing at this whole fatherhood thing. And not only is he doing an awesome job, but I want him to know that I notice that he is an amazing Dad. I just want him to know that he is appreciated.
I am sure you can tell that I am putting a lot of pressure on myself. I mean it is just a day, right? However with all the chaos going on in our lives right now, I would really like to just take one day and celebrate something.
So what are you doing for your husband on Father's Day? Keep in mind, I will probably be stealing your ideas, so if this bothers you don't comment :)
