Our family is no stranger to a tight budget, but with holidays it’s the little acts of love that get remembered the most, versus grandiose gifts. DD is obviously too young to show her appreciation for her father, but fortunately for her, I’m more than willing to do so on her behalf. 😉 This first Father’s Day is a great time for me to express my thankfulness for a partner who has been by my side throughout the pregnancy and birthing process, both literally and figuratively. When it came down to those critical moments and times of need, DD and I were always his top priority, and he’s taken amazing care of us ever since.
So, rather than purchase Daddy yet another firearm – let’s be honest, the man would love that for any holiday – DD and I will be focusing on the little things that remind him of how much we love him. Biscuits and gravy for breakfast, without being prompted? Check. Uninterrupted time to watch a gory B movie on TV? Why not! Sleeping in and having plenty of family snuggle time? His favorite! Smiles aplenty from DD? Melts his heart! All of that goodness aside, I do like to give him at least one tangible item to open. Being his first Father’s Day with us, anything that has DD’s mark on it is a perfect gift – a card with her handprint or footprint, a framed picture of the two of them, or even decking her out in an outfit proclaiming her love for Daddy.
As for me, I’ll be showing DH some TLC, which he’s gone without for the last ten weeks (of DD’s life). With a newborn, chores to do, and meals to make, there’s not a lot left of me at the end of the day, which is tough when your husband’s love languages are physical touch and quality time. That’s where Dove Men+Care comes in for our family this year. Time for DH to take a couple minutes to pamper himself, before I finally give him that back rub he’s been requesting for weeks.
