Unfortunately, this post is a day late. I have been having quite the computer trouble lately, and even less fortunately, it still isn’t working out for me correctly. I am currently typing this from my phone. If someone saw the way I was looking at my computer, they would likely assume it had murdered my dog.
After spending my earliest hours attempting to make my computer function without any success, I ran out to the store to buy some last minute ingredients and gifts for my husband. I printed out some of my favorite photos and put them into frames as well as buying a bluray, coffee, and a cute onesie for the baby to represent Daddy yesterday. I hadn’t thought to check until the morning, but he no longer fit into his other onesies that had cute messages about Daddy.
We had a choose-your-adventure morning/early afternoon. I made up several cards with different activities for the day, such as “open a gift” or “make a cute memory” or “watch a movie of your choice”. We didn’t get to all of them – but our favorite attempt was dressing the baby in dad’s outfit to later on put into a photo album. He didn’t cooperate, so we will try again later.
My husband spent the rest of his afternoon brewing a beer – one of his favorite hobbies and something he doesn’t often have the chance to do.
While we didn’t get to do everything I had planned (which really kills the planner in my personality), my husband tells me it was a fantastic and memorable first Father’s Day. That is all I wanted, and I’m glad I could do that for him.
I hope everyone else had a chance to enjoy the day – I’d love to hear about other things you did for Father’s Day!
