Super Dad

Father’s Day

It was Father’s Day? I know I always record things a day after they pass but it’s pretty sad that here it is Tuesday (or Wednesday) and I’m just now saying something about Toby’s very first Father’s Day ever. Sad. Sad. Sad.

Not to mention I got him nothing (NOTHING) but a weekend full of pms. I tried really hard to be the perfect wife and not nag or whine or even cry… but I failed miserably. There were tears and yelling and lots of time spent in the baby’s room with the door shut. Don’t even try to tell me not to be too hard on myself in the comment box. I deserve to feel crappy. I have no excuse. I had all the time in the world to think up something sweet and sentimental and I didn’t. Not even a homemade card–which is what I planned on doing but didn’t because somehow I used her morning nap to do something else. I can’t remember what.

So I’m just going to say it today. Happy Father’s Day Toby! You’re a really great Dad, better than I even imagined. I love you. (And thank you for hugging me and telling me that everything will be okay in reality when I get back to it. It wasn’t funny then, but it is now.)

    Call me a scrooge, but I think all of these holidays are over rated. As if we don’t have enough pressure. Besides that, fathers are fathers every day, and I hope I show my husband my appreciation on more occasions than just one day a year. After 14 years of marriage, the best gift we can give eachother is alone time. And that’s all my husband got for father’s day.

    Toby’s funny.

    Toby does have a good sense of humour :). And you do know that you can make any day Father’s Day! Just pick a day when he isn’t busy(if he has one) and surprise him with a special day just for him.

    I was kind of a b&#@h to my husband on father’s day. Ooops. I agree with what Nila said- those holidays are over rated. I also tend to freak out on holidays because I think I’m not going to make a big deal out of them but then decide to at the last minute, but then it’s too late…

    The pictures are beautiful- they really capture the daddy/daughter interaction.

    It’s so cute that they are mirroring each other’s expressions! What’s with the finger up Toby’s nose?

    BTW Uncle B told me the first year of our marriage, “Don’t let your emotions control you.” If I felt they were getting the best of me I would go to my room and close the door (gently!) and go to sleep. I don’t remember how I woke up!!

    PMS sucks! And I totally agree that the holidays are way too overrated/commercialized.

    I wish I would have thought to do what Aunt Kathy did. I would get plenty of rest that way! LOL!

    Must send this post to Hubby. Proof it is not only ME who turns into another person when PMS hits..

    The pictures are wonderfull, Toby looks reminds me of a mad scientist. Sorry that you did not get to enjoy it, but the day you plan to celebrate it will be great.
