The chaotic nature of our days tends to not allow our minds to have a moment to stop and consider all that our husbands do for us on the daily. While their work life may seem glamorous whilst we are deep in the throes of the domestic mundane, what they do is no less arduous, taxing, difficult or important. Up at dawn, deadlines, travel, long hours, stress, home repairs, bedtime struggles, middle of the night chats with our kids, the list is long. They go above and beyond and deserve to have their praises sung. Every year around this time, the reminder that Father’s day is approaching forces us to slow down and consider all the ways in which we could show our husbands, the fathers of our children, just how appreciated they truly are.


And while we’re sure what they’d really like is a vacation or a new wristwatch, we aren’t prepared to be that impractical.

A new spatula for the grill, or socks and underwear, while practical, hardly scream “thank you for everything you do, dad!” And while we’re sure what they’d really like is a vacation or a new wristwatch, we aren’t prepared to be that impractical. What follows is that many of us will opt for a cute card hand drawn by the kids, because it’s always fun to get homemade gifts. Right?
