Dads Need Love, Too
We know the scenario well: it’s two days before Father’s Day and the last thing you’ve had time to do is run out to buy the big guy in your life something to say thanks for being an awesome dad. But (clichéd or not) the best gifts really do come from the heart, and your hubby will likely get more happiness from a day spent with you than any tool, tie or gizmo you could grab off the rack. We have a few ideas to get you started.
#1. The Great Outdoors
A trip to the park with both your favorite guys (big and little) will be a chance to enjoy quality time together and make new memories (and getting a giggle yourself watching them get dirty exploring). Take it one step further by giving Dad a picnic fit for a king. Capture the day’s adventure with a digital camera and print it out for your hubby as a special momento of the day.
#2. Breakfast in Bed +1
There’s nothing a new dad loves more than baby and bacon! So why not surprise your man with breakfast in bed? Slip away while he’s still snoozin’ and fix his favorite breakfast. Grab baby from his crib and make it a family affair. With nowhere to go just lie back and enjoy bonding (and the bacon!).
#3. Sowing the Seeds of Love
Planting a tree is a great way to spend the day busy outdoors as a family to create something you all can enjoy. As you start work together, explain what you are doing step by step. Let baby feel the textures outside and maybe even get a hand on his first tool (with supervision, of course). You’ll be able to watch the tree grow with your baby and you can always remember Daddy & Me’s first handy man job.
