Father's Day

I knew that I wanted to make a huge deal out of Father's Day.

My husband isn't really a romantic kinda guy. I'm OK with that. I've known it from the start......6 years to be exact. So when Mother's Day rolled around, and I didn't get anything, I wasn't all that surprised. He just doesn't think about things like that. It wasn't until the end of the day when he asked why I was moping around that I finally broke down, cried, and told him how my feelings were hurt because he barely acknowledged the fact that it was Mother's day at all (and my first one!).  Needless to say, he felt like total shit. And promised to make it up to me.

It still hasn't happened. But I don't blame him, I'm sure it would have had we not gotten in a car accident and had to buy a new car. Things get in the way of plans we make.

Life happens.

But I do think of things like that. A lot. I had been planning on what I would do for a while. So, here's what I did;

The babe and I woke up at 7:30 and went to the grocery store to pick up his favorite breakfast (cinnamon rolls) and while we were there I grabbed some OJ, chocolate milk (for moi) and some coffee (because we were out, and we needed some!) Maxwell House now has a gourmet blend, and it's delicious. I also found Peppermint mocha creamer by Coffee Mate, which he and I both love! (It's the only thing he will drink from Starbucks, peppermint white chocolate mocha latte) So it was perfect and I knew I had to get it, so I did. I came home and asked him what time he wanted to wake up, he said 9:30, which was also perfect. It gave me plenty of time to feel the baby and put her down for her morning nap. Once she was sleeping, I threw the cinnamon rolls in the oven and started the coffee.

I was going to wake him up. but someone beat me to it. He was on call, and his phone went off....he had to get up and go to work. ::Sad face::
I made him his breakfast, and coffee and gave him his cards; one from me, and one from our daughter. I also had the lyrics to the song "It wont be like this for Long" by Darius Rucker laminated (super fancy pants, I know), and gave it to him. If you haven't heard this song, it's really good. Especially if you have a daughter. He teared up while he was reading it, mission accomplished. Ha. I can't read it, or hear the song without crying, so I knew it was a good choice. After that, I gave him his gift! I reserved a round of golf for him and his buddies for next weekend....he suddenly loves golf, so he was super excited! I am horrible at keeping secrets, well not really, more presents that I have a hard time waiting to give, so I'm really surprised that I was able to wait until Sunday. Pleasantly surprised.

Off he went to work, and the babe and I went grocery shopping. I wanted him to be able to just relax and not have to worry about anything when he got home from work. Then she and I came home, and she took a nap which gave me time to clean our entire place before he got home. And I mean, I seriously cleaned. Like, vacuumed the vacuum kind of clean. He came home to a clean house, full of groceries, and no worries. I took complete care of the babe all day, and night so he could enjoy himself. It was really important to me that he had a great day. And overall, I'm pretty sure he did.

So tell me, how was your father's day spent?!
