Happy Father's Day

After everything that we have been through so far this year (and we're only half way through 2016!), there's no better time than to express my thanks and appreciation to my hubby for everything he is to our family. Let's face it, we often take Dad's for granted don't we. Sorry babe! 

Only our second ever family photo!
A wonderful Father, putting the children before any of his own needs, he is loving and caring, ever encouraging them to do the best that they can. From the kisses and cuddles, tickling and being silly, to the teaching of life lessons, I wouldn't change anything about him. Just as I'm sure the kids feel.

Carson says...
I'm so happy about what Dad has bought me and made with me (lots of stuff!). My favourite thing about Dad is that he is very loving and I like it when he tickles me - even with his stubbly beard on my belly - he's so funny. Any jokes he ever tells me I laugh until my cheeks hurt. I think he is the best at impressions, they're awesome, especially Plankton from Spongebob. Second best is Squidward from Spongebob! So all I want to say is Happy Father's Day, Dad. I love you.

Beebeebeeeeb. 

I find it strange that Carson's school has done absolutely nothing for Father's Day as opposed to shed-loads for Mother's Day. We have to send in a new item/product one day, then send our kids in with money to buy it back a few days later. Massive money spinner. I always end up with some bizarre second hand (ahem, used!!) body lotion or scratched pocket mirror. I don't know why I bother sending Carson in with something brand new, I never get a new item back haha! But the point is, they make Mother's Day such a huge deal, bringing home cards etc yet not a word has been uttered about Father's Day.


Whilst I appreciate that not everyone has a Dad, not everyone has a Mum either do they. And afterall, if you do 'only' have a mum ,she should be celebrated on Father's Day just as on Mother's Day - they are 2 parents rolled in to one! Any way, we've made Dad a card this year, designed and made completely by Carson himself and he is so excited about seeing his reaction to it. So much better than a shop bought card in my opinion.

I'm also holding a very special quiet moment for my own Dad today who is no longer with us, taken far far too soon. I will always love you too Dad. xx

Happy Father's Day everyone... hope you are appreciated, at least for today, as much as you deserve!

  2. What a beautiful card made by Carson! Indeed it is not just Fathers who we celebrate today we must celebrate our mothers too - both sacrifice so much every single day for their children, Happy Fathers day to all dad's world over!

  4. It is true they should really place more emphasis on Fathers day as it is not fair at all. Glad to see you do celebrate it!

  5. This is such a lovely post. I'm training to be a teacher so I will definitely make as much of a big deal about Father's Day as I do Mother's Day in my class!! Xx

  6. I do find it odd that mothers day is always celebrated far more than fathers day even though it's just as important. I try to do as much for them both x

  9. What a lovely post. Great idea to get the boys involved. I'm surprised the school didn't do anything for father's day..my kids school did pretty much the same thing for both. I wonder the reason behind it?

  12. I found that when my now grown up children were at school they never made Father's day cards and I thought at the time it was just wrong. I can't believe the school makes the kids take in gifts to buy back, what's wrong with spending a class making a special picture or gift. Mother's day shouldn't be about the present it should be about the thought! I loved reading your son's words about his Dad - just so cute!
