Parenting has three stages, one when the kids are infections and most of your time is consumed either changing diapers or warming a milk bottle, two, when they get to grade school and later become teenager and it's a constant back and forth of temper tantrums and three once the kids move out and it's always just a hurried phone call from miles away. During these stages, sometimes teenage is the only time when kids can really celebrate birthdays, Christmases, mothers day and fathers day. Other than that, these important holidays and parents are often neglected.
It's quite why it's up to you to give your husband a good fathers day when your kids are too young to acknowledge him for his role as a father in any way other than just by throwing up. A lot of men give their wives a gift, flowers and candy the very least, on mothers day so women should really be returning the affection. Here is a few simple things you can do to make fathers day special for your husband.
Give your husband the day off
Fatehers day may be on a Sunday but that does not mean that your husband will not have anything to do or that he'll be work free. Just like you have a ton of stuff to do on the weekdays, your husband also has lots of chores to do around the house and most of it is back breaking work like mowing the lawn. You can not take over the chore yourself and postponing it does not make the work go away so hire someone to mow the lawn for a change and give your husband a break.
Let him really have his way
You're usually the one who decides how to spend the weekend and what work needs to get done. Why not let your husband decide what he wants to do. Instead of grocery shopping, repairing and babysitting, let your husband sleep in or go out with his friends. He might want to take the whole family out to a movie or play with the kids for hours in the park, let him have his fun. Dads get to spend very little time with their kids and it's always a source of guilt for them.
A very special kind of acknowledgment
This gift will take some planning but it'll be worth it in the end, try and get your father in law, your husband's dad or his granddad, to call him up and tell him he's doing a great job as a dad. If you're unable to get in touch with your father-in-law for whatever reason, talk to the father figure in your husband's life. The call and the words of encouragement will mean a lot to home, more than a Ferrari or sports tickets.
A little indulgent gift
Give your husband a treat and find a special edib gift for him like fruit bouquets which may not sound like it, but are a fun and exciting gift to receive. Fruit bouquets are fruit sculptures made by cutting fresh fruit and sometimes dipping it in chocolate so that they look like flowers in bloom. They're absolutely delicious in-budget gifts for fathers day. They're made with a huge variety of fruit like chocolate covered strawberries, pineapple daisy slices covered in chocolate, apple wedges, oranges, melons, grapes, bananas, melons and lots more.
