Did you remember that this Sunday is Father’s Day?
The fun thing about Father’s Day is that it applies to pretty much everyone. Either you have a father or father-figure in your life, &/or you’re married to one. That covers 90-95% of us.
Growing up, Father’s Day was about making “love” coupons & making cookies. Coupons like: redeem this for a 20 minute foot massage, which to my dad was better than just about anything. He was always trying to con us, or rather bribe us into giving him foot massages for a quarter, or 50 cents. This year, since I’m going to be with my dad, I’m going to skip the foot massage, but I’ll probably make some cookies & a card. My dad was always one to appreciate gifts, cards & gestures, unlike my mom, who really isn’t into that kind of thing.
Now what to do for Joseph.
I’ve mentioned before what a spectacular dad he is. I have to admit, at times, I get jealous. The way he’s playful & attentive–it comes so naturally to him. He also runs a tight ship & is very much a scheduler (this is why I anticipate the military will be a perfect fit for him). I’m sort of the opposite. It’s not that I don’t like order & planning, I just think it sometimes can get in the way of creativity & living with just a touch of spontaneity, which makes life fun & exciting. Or extremely unpredictable, as my husband sees it. Maybe this is why we’re good for each other.
Here’s an awesome, helpful guide, put together from some ladies at Mom’s Best. It’s everything you need to put together a really thoughtful Father’s Day for the dad(s) in your life. And if you’re like me & have put off planning your Dad’s day, you’ll need some help!
I love the DIY skinny tie & bow tie boxes (what a great idea, right?!), the kid’s craft project for dad, & the little gift guides for dad, depending on his style. (I think Joseph is a mix of the creative & hipster dad). This little guide will inspire you & help you to get it together, so this father’s day, you can show the dad(s) in your life that you love & appreciate him!
What are your plans to celebrate the dad(s) in your life? I’d love to hear your ideas!
