Okay, so I messed up. Two months ago I scheduled the carpets to be cleaned, the Monday after Father's Day. I wasn't thinking. Erik is always telling me never to schedule any appointments on a Monday or a Friday in case we decide to go anywhere. I should know better! Kieran's best buddy also happened to be having his 4th birthday party and I had responded before Erik decided to go to the mountains with his parents. So, we stayed behind and he went. So sad, maybe more pathetic on my part. So this morning, we celebrated "faux father's day". The kids wished their daddy a happy father's day today and were just thrilled to be eating pancakes and coloring with him at the table.
And of course, "Me Too" wanted to join in on the fun!
We love you, Erik! You are the best! And yes, I know you're freaked out that you won't be able to handle a 3rd, but you are a GREAT dad and Kieran and Anna are so lucky to have you! Thank you for being a wonderful husband, for cooking me dinner before you left so that I wouldn't starve over the weekend, for putting up with me when I'm difficult, and for loving me always.
You deserve your new iPhone :)
Happy Faux Father's Day today, and Happy Father's Day EVERY DAY!
