Okay, I’m a bit late but better late than never. I’ve been too busy hanging out with my pappy to stop and write about him. Alas, it’s only a week and a half until Fathers’ Day and we’d better plan something to make up for the fact that we did practically nothing for Dan’s birthday last month.
Oh? You did something for Dan’s birthday last month? Well, isn’t that special. You can relax then. Or maybe you could do something for your father or the father of your children on the 17th. I’m planning to focus on the big D.
Have you done something really cool in the past that you feel like sharing so the rest of us can steal it? Personally I have a really hard time coming up with gifts for the man-types in my life. Sure it’s fun to give multiple CDs every single occasion every year of our life, but I’d like to boost the surprise factor a little.
NOTE TO DAN. PLEASE STOP READING NOW.
I’ll share something fun we did for Fathers’ Day if you tell me what the chicken to do for Dan…Oh, and how about my father and father-in-law as well?
NOTE TO MY FATHER AND FATHER IN LAW. PLEASE STOP READING NOW.
One year I was looking for the dude equivalent of the Mothers’ Day corsage. I came up with a Daddy necklace. Sounds cool, huh? It actually was. Laylee and I got a bunch of wooden letter beads and colored beads and spelled out various names Dan carries as a father.
Dan loves to wear it to church and then all day long on Sunday. Many of my friends said their husbands were not secure enough in their manhood to wear such an item. If your husband/father* is a manly man, he will love this gift.
On Fathers’ Day the Pater Familias gets to be free of all chores, nap in the afternoon and we make his favorite dinner, served on the “You are Special” plate.
*I am not insinuating that your husband and father are the same person. In this instance, the slash means “or.”
