Father's Day

I suppose that I should write something heart felt and true about my husband being a great father, but for some reason I am finding it difficult to find the words to do so. Now I know that may sound shocking but I mean it in a positive way. If you had an hour or more, I could go on and on about the attributes of my husband and what makes him such a wonderful daddy to our children. Instead, I will invite you over to my house to take a look at the scrapbook that I made for Daddy last year. On the front cover it has a letter from Kaelen describing that this album is made up of photos of just Daddy and him (and now Masyn) and that it will reflect all of the special times that they experienced over the year.

I took a blogging hiatus over the past couple of days in order to finish the new album inserts in time for today. Now, this special book boasts of 20 new pages reflecting special memories of Daddy with his children. All of the hours put in and the insecurities of thinking that a page looked tacky or stupid, made it worth the while with the look on my hubby's face when he went perused the pages. The tears in his eyes and the reflective commentary between him and Kaelen was so very touching that I wish that I had the forethought to have captured it on video. Both Kaelen and Daddy have looked through the book a few times today and Daddy, who is not a reader and is known for not being a book lover, has told his son that this is his favourite book.

I now have one thing to think about over the next year. This book was originally made with the thought of capturing Kaelen and Daddy moments. So, do I make a whole new album dedicated with memories of just Daddy and Masyn? Or ... do I just get a bigger album and expand it to memories of Daddy and his children .....

What a great idea! I think you should do a different one for Masyn. Of course that means more work for
you...

I would do a different one as well, just so they'd both have their own "special" book to share with daddy.

What a wonderful gift!
