Afterall, how would I *ever* top the Mother's Day gift(s) I'd been given this year? I mean, REALLY. How does one top that? I was faced with a mind bender.
During the week leading up to Father's Day (hereafter referred to as F.D.), I looked to my children for inspiration. Dems cute, dems full of ideas (especially that wiley two year-old) and dems who I spend most of my waking hours with. In between the shrieking (Piglet), spitting up (Twinks) and meltdowns (ALL), I searched for the perfect idea, but remained at a loss.
That is, until the morning before F.D.
I thought I'd capture Piglet on video giving a little tribute to his old man. You know, a little improv plus some "I wuv you daddyyyyy!" or "Appy Ather's Day Daddyyyy!"
Instead, I got this:
Pure genius! Just the inspiration I was seeking! My Piglet is such a clever little boffin.
So on this momentous occasion, Mr. K's first Father's Day with THREE children, I presented him with this:
Note that I sprung for the Ultra, Double Roll, jumbo pack with NEW Cotton Comfort. So posh!
Sorry for the poor quality, off-center picture, but hopefully you can at least make out the text.
Because we are all for saving trees, I went with a punchcard format instead of individual coupons. Next, I'm going to laminate it!
I also want to give a shout-out to all my hilarious FB friends who egged me on and suggested coupons for things such as nail trims, shaving cream and toilet scrubbing! Bahahahahaha.
Lest you think I am all about revenge and grudge holding (though you are mostly correct), let the record show that I did surprise Mr. K by booking him a 90 minute massage this morning.
Afterall, SOMEONE has got to lead by example around here. Before he departed for his massage, I reminded Mr. K. that this was not only a gift but ALSO a TEACHABLE MOMENT. As in -- I'm trying to teach you how NOT to screw me on Mother's Day again.
Because if you do, I guarantee you, your next F.D. will most *certainly* be more of an F.U.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY HONEY!!! THANKS FOR BEING AN AMAZING DAD TO OUR PIGLETS! LOVE YOU! MMMMMMMMWAH.
