  • I'm getting my H a card.  Lol.

     

    I got a nice card, a beach day, and time to myself for Mother's Day.  So I'm not going all out, and H told me he didn't want anything.  I may frame some pics of Madison and him together or something.  His birthday is in 2 months and I will do something more then.

  • Don't feel bad at all!  Pinterest is great at making people feel guilty about not doing all this artsy-crafty stuff.  I did steal the idea of DD holding the letters D.A.D. in pics, but honestly it was super easy.  Anything more difficult than that would not have been done in my house.  So he'll get that from DD and then from me I think he's just going to get a bucket of his favorite snacks and a card.  We'll probably go out to eat.  That's about it.

  • I think it sounds like you did an awesome job. I bet he is going to love his gifts and enjoy his day.

  • SO told me not to get him anything, so I bought him a lunchbox and a water bottle.

    LOL. Definitely no "competition" here. 

    I was going to make him a garden stone (he has a little vegetable garden in the back) with a Pinterest recipe for the clay or whatever, then I found a kit at Joann's for $10, so I'm just going to do that. I give props to the crafty mom's, but I ain't got time for all that.

  • We are going to the zoo on Sunday because that's what he wanted to do. Cali is making him a card today, and I'll probably make eggs, hashbrowns and bacon that morning because that's his favorite breakfast. I'm also looking for a punching bag on craigslist because that's how he likes to work out.

    For us its hard. Cali's birthday is always within a few days of Mothers day, my birthday is the beginning of June, then it's fathers day, then dh's birthday is July 2nd, and now Cam's birthday is in August. It's hard to drop a lot of dough in such a short amount of time. It's the thought that counts.

  • KEEEEEKEEEEEE!  How dare you say that you feel like you are failing at being an awesome mom.  You are incredible.

    And it sounds like you are putting plenty of effort into Father's Day! 

    He wanted a Fitbit Flex -- you ordered one for him!  You can always print out a picture of it and put it in the card for him with the arrival date on it or something like.  You also got him shirts and a card from you and a card from Leo. 

    Don't compare what you are getting him to what other people are doing for Father's Day.  DH has only 1 or 2 small pics of Isla at work, so that's why I wanted to do this for him.  If YH already has pics of Leo, then it makes sense that you wouldn't want to do more pictures.

    Don't doubt yourself!!

  • Try not to feel bad Kiki! Pinterest is filled with crazy crap and most people do not have the skills, time or even desire to do all that.
    It sounds like you got your h what he wanted. That's awesome!!
    DH had mentioned doing DSs handprint since we did that for DDs first Mother's Day and hadn't yet for DS. I was gonna get the kit at Joanns but I didn't feel like putting the kids in the car for the 5 minute drive to the store and running around looking for it. I ended up making a salt dough version in less time than all that running around would have taken. It was easy, "from the kids" and now I'm done.

  • I think you've done plenty!

    I haven't gotten anything sentimental for DH because he's just not that way.  I'm a terrible photographer so I couldn't pull off the DAD thing.

    My mom wanted to get him something sentimental from Things Remembered and I just told her she'd be wasting her money. I told her to buy him a set of kitchen knives. LOL

    I ended up getting him a card each from DS and I. He'll get a card with a poem from daycare. I got us tickets to Daniel Tosh and will take him out for Thai beforehand.

    I'd like to do handprints on DS' card, but he HATES having his hands restrained, so I doubt that will work out.

    DH doesn't have an office and wears a uniform to work so most dad stuff is useless to him.

  • Uhhh...today is our wedding anniversary and Sunday is Father's Day and the 29th is H's bday.

    You think I'm going to go all out on each holiday? Fat chance. I'll half azs two of them and probably completely ignore one. Guess which one I'm ignoring? (as I bump and lie down for a nap)

    Yeah, our anniversary is on Tuesday!  We really didn't think that date through... it will always be within days of our anniversary.

    We do a card and a meal.

    I really think people overthink these holidays. Maybe that's another UO.

    yup, yup, yup! 

    I think you've done very well!  Like Scout, a card a meal for my Dh.

  • I think you're an awesome mom! Those gifts sound great for Father's Day. Don't let other peoples posts and pinterest make you sad. Cool

  • Eff pinterest. Ain't not body got time for that. You got him something he asked for and someone you know he likes. You did good, mama! It sucks that it will be a day late, but, as you said - you've had a hectic schedule lately. He'll understand and love the gift no matter what day he receives it on.

    If it makes you feel any better I procrastinated with absolutely no reason. The gift I bought him in the store yesterday cost about $50 more than it would have if I'd ordered it online ahead of time. Plus, I wanted to make a card with DS and my stepchildren on it but guess what? Procrasinated on that one too and the estimated arrival was after Fathers Day unless I wanted to pay $20 to overnight a $2 card. Haha.

    Maybe these things will get easier as our babies get older!

  • I'm having Howell make him a card, giving him a book by an author we like and a teeshirt that says the name of our neighborhood on it. Oh and I'll let him sleep in and go to dinner.

    ETA: I agree, eff pinterest.

    Then and now. How did my boy get so big? 

  • Dude, I'm not even getting H a card. I got him a "daddy rocks" guitar pick, and he said he wanted to go anywhere he wanted for dinner/lunch.
    Like Scout said, I think people over think these holidays.

  • A card and breakfast. That's how we roll.

    You did way better than me.

  • And for the record, I did the D-A-D pictures because I had no effing clue what else to do and I totally copied it from someone else.  It was super easy for me to do, so don't feel too bad.

  • Oh silly lady. My husband is getting a bottle of scotch that he wanted, a picture frame for his office, and a card. They're boys, they don't want all that much!

  • Also, the punching bag is half his birthday present. Because he wouldn't decide on what gym he wanted a membership to and he needs to loose weight. Nice wife I am, right?

  • You've already done more than me. I bought him an electric razor, and that's it. I meant to do a craft with Js footprints, but I didn't get to. Now I dont have another day off until Tuesday so my SO will always be around. I didnt even buy him a card yet.

  • I did a card and a shutterfly coffee mug and some sandals he needed that he got 2 weeks ago. 

    I will probably also buy him his favorite scotch and call it a day.

  • No gifts in our house. He's getting a card, and we're walking to the local butcher so he can pick out steaks for dinner. Then I'll watch DD while he spends hours prepping and resting and grilling and resting the steaks and MAYBE I'll get to eat one before I fall asleep. That's gift enough, I think. If he does finish them in time for us to eat dinner before 9pm, there might be a bj in our plans too.

  • I told my MIL off last night and honestly I dont care if I ever hear from her again.

    I sounds like you did good to me.

    Ya, Father's Day is on my birthday, so it gets put on the back burner this year Wink

    I'm making this card for DH and DD will fill in the blanks.  I'll probably get him a small gift card too.

    I got my dad a present but the shipping is taking forever so he'll just get a card for now.

    image 

    DD did that at preschool. A different version of it-I love the answers they give :)
