I have to say that I lucked out finding a partner who strives to be a great father and wants to raise our kids to be great people. So to celebrate Mike's "Greatness" this Father's Day we did....NOTHING!!!
After chatting with our kids we decided that Daddy works too much so he's going to have a day to relax and be pampered. Which was a nice change of pace since we as a family never to nothing.
We started this wonderful celebration by making Mike breakfast in bed which all the kids asked for bites of his meal. And since he's such a champ he shared with everyone. Lily's holding his homemade card that tell him why everyone loves him.
Hailey painted his nails with clear polish.
After Mike's Spa treatments our kids went crazy trying to give him all his gifts.... I think Mike got alittle overwhelmed by everyone coming at once but all was well...he was excited for all his daddy gifts.
We watched movies pretty much all day. All Dad movies like Father of the Bride, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Prince of Persia (well that wasn't really Dad related but our kids dad love that movie so it counts)
Why is Mike holding a cake? Mason had the thought that the "Happy Birthday" song could be changed to "Happy Father's Day" so once our girls heard his idea everyone was on board to make Mike a Father's Day Cake with candles and sing to him. I laughed the entire time but our kids made it through the song then laughed. But Mike liked the idea...4 candles, 4 kids, 4th Father's Day....so sorta his Golden Father's Day.
Anyways we all had a great Father's Day doing NOTHING! Yes- Mike in his PJ's from when he woke up to when he went to bed. And Yes- our kids were actually really well behaved. It might have to do with me telling them to be nice or be in time out...so maybe it helped...alittle.
PS What's up with the bowl? When I told our kids to put their cake bowls away and get ready to brush your teeth. This is what I found in Ducati's crib. She put her bowl in her bed and ran to the bathroom to brush her teeth. I love her personality!
