What an awesome start to my Fathers Day with my daughter Isla bringing this home from school for me. It is a drawing of me which has a large resemblance to me (but hopefully my teeth are in better shape!). It has written on the back " My Dad is special because he gives me lots of kisses and cuddles. And he loves me. And he plays with me. And he teaches me things". They had a morning tea and Father's Day event at her school where the kids presented these to their Dads and read what they had written on the back. It brought a tear to my eye!
She had also made a beautiful card and "Dad's tool box" which had a Mars bar, a key ring of the drawing and a voucher book for things like help in the garden, a sleep in, breakfast in bed and taking out the trash. I will be using those wisely!! :)
I also scored some pretty cool stuff this morning from the kids. Isla's school had a Father's day stall and she had to take some money and pick something out herself. She bought me a stubbie holder, a super dad pen and a packet of jelly beans, which I have already been told that I have to share. :)
Nathaniel picked out a Ping pong set and super hero jocks and I also got a singlet and some shorts. I think I did pretty well indeed!
My two beautiful kids Isla May and Nathaniel John. I am a very lucky Dad to have such a beautiful family!
I hope every other Dad has a great Fathers Day too!
